Richard replaced my starter. He's a really nice guy and I learned a lot about my car talking to him. I chose to buy the new starter myself, and he came back the next day to install it. All good.

Godwin

Godwin was just fantastic! He arrived early and was able to begin inspecting the seller's car without me being present, as I was running 15 minutes late. He was professional, friendly, hilarious at times, and honest. I'm fortunate to have gotten Godwin as my "assigned" mechanic. Note that he is an ASE Advanced Level Technician (likely L1 certification), meaning that he is an engine performance specialist. For my service at least (pre-purchase car inspection), I prefer that over a more general Master Technician certification. I would highly recommend that you request Godwin T. if you are in the area!

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.
