David was prompt and early . Asked what problem happened. And after telling it i told him what all i did in hopes problem a simple fix and told him what i thought problem was and let him do the checks and more. As he looked at items he pointed out items needing attention. Suggested best to deal with when in fixing i agreed with his suggestion on what all pointed out needing attention soon and had just put work in car costing near 700 bucks ! he was very understanding at my need for least amount of work possible, he worked with me on options explaining logistics getting refurbished part as to new genuine OEM part warranted differently. David was patient with my indecision on best to do, answering questions til a decision was made. All was finalized to be done on a day i would not have to take off to be home to handle what all necessary for me to do and addressed other items to get so he didnt need to charge for needed for repair and instead o job costing a whole lot if i brought in to mechanic. with me providing part, repair only labor being cost very pleasing was amount for his expert services. he left me with a smile and confidence in work to be done. I expected a much different visit with much higher price. Very glad for referral given by co worker to try

All about Car AC Compressor Replacement

An AC system has many components: compressor, condenser, receiver dryer, evaporator, and hoses. The compressor, the “heart” of the car’s air conditioning system works like a pump taking refrigerant, (R-12 in older cars, R-134a in 1995 and newer cars) and pressurizing it, passing it along to the evaporator. The AC compressor has several moving parts (including pistons and valves). These internal parts can fail, causing the AC compressor to stop working. It is common for the internal parts of the compressor to come apart and disperse metallic debris throughout the system. Consequently, it is a requirement to replace the orifice tube and the receiver dryer when replacing the compressor since some of the debris may have ended up there. For an AC compressor to work, it needs a clutch, bearing, and an electrical connector. The clutch is driven by a drive/serpentine belt, which engages the compressor when you switch on the AC. The clutch can burn or the bearing can fail. If the bearing or clutch have failed, it is recommended that the compressor be replaced. Sometimes replacing the entire compressor with a remanufactured one can be cheaper than replacing an individual clutch or bearings. It is also common for the seals in the AC compressor to go bad. The compressor may start leaking refrigerant and/or the AC oil. If the seals no longer hold, you will need a new compressor, as the seals cannot be replaced. A compressor may also fail if there is sludge or debris in the air conditioning system. If there is sludge or debris, the hoses, evaporator, and condenser should be flushed to get rid of the contaminants. When it is not possible to flush the parts, you may need to replace those parts.
