Second time I've used Chris, and it won't be the last. He showed up half an hour early for a 7am appointment, and finished the job of replacing and recharging my a/c, for half of what the dealer wanted, and hours earlier than the original time estimate. Also advised me of work that the dealer would likely do for free.

William showed up early, inspected and confirmed the issue, and replaced my battery. William is very polite and pleasant to work with-- I asked him to take a look at my brake pads, which he did and confirmed that they did *not* need to be replaced-- refreshing since some folks will suggest unnecessary work! Overall, five stars, very happy with the service.

Duy was punctual, extremely efficient and professional. He ended up identifying an unknown transmission issue on a car I was considering, which probably saved me a fair amount of money. Would definitely recommend his services!

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.
