When I had terrible experience on my van, for which the service was left unfinished by previous mechanic, I was furious when I called yourmechanic, but the service representative was calm in explaining the warranty and immediately arranged appointment with Mark. Mark heard the whole story and immediately checked pressure test and realized that the fix previous mechanic did was totally unfinished. He promised to do everything he could and clearly mentioned upfront that he would test again along with road test. He appeared trustworthy and professional unlike my previous mechanic and assured me to fix the problem (replacing water pump) as well as fix the noises from timing belt that was damaged by previous mechanic. I appreciate the work done by Mark and I totally would recommend him. Also would prefer to have Mark as my mechanic for future services.

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.
