Jonathan was highly professional and trustworthy. Was told the last time I had a vehicle inspection that I would need rear shoes for my truck. Went over the recommended time, had been driving in the mountains down steep slopes, and figured it had to be cutting it close. Hardly. He showed me I still had 75% of my rear pads left, and 50% of my front. The dealership wanted $450 for the rear, and although I knew I wouldn't be going there for the service, I still figured I would need to change them. He did only what needed to be done, even after purchasing all parts to do front and rear brakes. His honesty gained a customer for as long as I live in this area. Skilled technicians with honesty are hard to come by. Recommended by all means.

Sam was great. Let us know the timing, when he was on his way and when he arrived. Was very honest and got to work right away. Figured out the issues quickly and took care of everything. We thought we had a brake issue (told by a shop) but it turned out it was something else. He inspected everything and made sure we understood what was going on. Really a good experience and would recommend. Will use again.

All about 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 Freon 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.
