He was super friendly! It even started raining and he was like, no big deal, it's cool. Whaaattt? He was super fast at putting a new serpentine belt in my car.

Booking Jeffrey was the first time I used YourMechanic and I was definitely pleased by his service! He called to tell me that he had finished up an appointment earlier than expected and could therefore make our appointment earlier than expected if I had the time. It was so easy and convenient to have Jeffrey come to my workplace to do the oil change I scheduled. He called my phone, had me bring the key to him, and then he handled everything from there. He was very polite, kind, and knowledgeable. During the oil change and inspection, he discovered that I had a cracked valve cover that was leaking onto the spark plugs and he emailed me a quote for that issue as well. I was initially just interested in YourMechanic because my schedule doesn't allow me to really go out to the mechanic during the work week so it was great to have someone come to me but the customer service and price have really made me a loyal YourMechanic customer. 10/10 would definitely recommend.

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.
