On account of me forgetting my phone number, there was confusion in the beginning on where my car was parked. Due to obvious communication issues. so we got off to a later start. It was parked on the side of the road, not in a driveway yet Casey said nothing about it. Casey was genuine about the situation and was easy to laugh at the situation with me. Whether or not he was assuming I knew nothing about the issues my car was facing. He still took the time to listen to what I had to say. From the issues it had in the beginning, to now, the work I had done on it already and even listened to what I thought needed to be done. We found the core issue pretty quickly and resolved it in no time at all. I really don't like standing around, so I liked that he let me participate in the repairs as well as teaching me a few things I either didn't know or had never thought of. Within an hour we were doing the final inspection of everything, did a quick pick up of tools. Finally, after 2 weeks of fighting this thing, just trying to get someone knowledgeable enough to 'COME OUT TO WHERE MY CAR WAS' (saving me hundreds getting it towed into an auto repair shop.) and help me fix my car, I was driving away!! Not only was Casey someone I'd recommend for anyone who can appreciate and/or are looking for someone who just wants to honestly help people, with integrity in a laid back professional manner. I'll be calling him back next time I need somethin done. FIRSHIR. This company is absolutely perfect!! I've been wishing for something like this for a while now... Glad someone finally put it together. I'm glad I stumbled upon it more. lol Thank you

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.
