I am SO happy I found YourMechanic when I did. When my check engine light came on, I immediately took it to a shop to uncover the code. Once they discovered the problem with my timing belt, they were going to charge me a ridiculous amount of money to do the job. On top of that, I would've had to wait a week to book an appointment, there was just no way I was going to wait a week, I was already paranoid driving the car down the street. That evening I did a Google search and found YourMechanic and was so happy to be given a quote right away for drastically less than the shops were quoting me. I booked my appointment right away. Godwin was awesome! He was friendly and extremely professional. I appreciated how he accommodated my address change and communicated every step of the way. My timing belt was repaired in under 3 hours and then took my car around the block to make sure everything ran smoothly. I really appreciated the inspection report that I received in my inbox and all the feedback that was provided for my car. All in all this was a wonderful and very pleasant experience and will certainly be making Godwin my go-to guy for my recommended services. Thank you so much Godwin!!

I'm not very good at writing these reviews but certainly believe this experience demands one. I our ability to log on to "My Mechanic" choose an appointment time, describe your cars problem, have a quote and expect it all to come together. But it does! This is a wonderful concept and I am very pleased with my first experience.

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 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.
