Mechanic Gonzalos is the best person to go to regarding your car. He is very nice, sweet, honest, and very professional. The way he texts you to let you know he is on his way and when your car is done he texts you when it's ready. I have never went to a dealership because of this place and I am very fortunate I did not. This is the best mechanic hands down and he means business. I drive a 1995 Toyota Camry and needed a new battery and oil change filter done. Less than an hour the job was complete. Thanks to Gonzalos I passed my state inspection and I am very happy my car is working. I saved twice the money by contacting him about my car!!! This mechanic knows the ins and outs about expensive dealership that will get over on you and he will make sure your car is perfect before he leaves. I would highly recommend my family and friends to him for any car problems. Dealership are going to run out of business when you have REAL MECHANIC LIKE GONZALOS TO THE RESCUE!!!!

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.
