This was my first experience booking a mobile mechanic and I was a little dubious, but Chris was excellent in all phases of his performance. He arrived on time (actually a little early), did the analysis and identified the problem. He also went through my options, including ways for me to save some money by buying the parts from a Toyota dealer so I could get authentic Toyota parts. We agreed that I would do that and he would return when I called him to install the parts.

I have raved on Facebook already and made a second appointment with Tien, I like to have a regular mechanic but my street is small and doesn't allow for a tow truck very well. SO if I am broken down I am so calling ya'll again.

Russell

I have to say I was not very pleased with Russell. He seemed in a hurry and not too friendly. He immediately had negative comments about the car I was looking at buying before even inspecting it. I'm giving three stars because he did find issues and kept me from buying a used car that may have had problems. However, after using a different mechanic from your company to look at another car, I realized Russell was not very thorough as the other mechanic did much, much more in his inspection. He also told me I could text him if I had any other questions about this car and gave me his number. I did end up having questions, but he wasn't very responsive, more like rude and brusque. All in all, not a very pleasant experience.

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.
