Very thorough, came on time. Very detailed. Let me know that nothing was in immediate danger of breaking, but did submit a quote for things that were breaking down. He even told me that the last place I went to did something wierd to my brakes, but that it was an amateur mistake and it's not very harmful, but I should still get that fixed when I can. He definitely knew his stuff. I will definitely be doing some price shopping, but if I come back I'm definitely booking Robert again. It's nice to have someone working on my car that I can trust from the get go. And honestly, the quote didn't even seem that bad.

I am really glad to have used service from Your Mechanic. I really appreciate founders coming with this concept that is a great help for service people who do not get to mechanic's shop because of circumstances. I had been waiting for more than a month to get my things done and after contacting your mechanic it's done without any extra effort, instead at a great convenience.

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.
