Excellent experience with Allen, he is a true professional and clearly takes pride in his work. Would 100% use again.
Professional, courteous, punctual, friendly and knowledgeable. These are just a few words that I'd use to describe Allen and his work ethics. I was very pleased. As such, I would highly recommend Allen to anyone for their automotive needs. He explains (in detail) any and all work necessary to accomplish the same goal- a great running vehicle! I can't imagine going back to a dealer or some other mechanic to work on my Toyota truck. I'm a loyal customer now!

I was very skeptical about this service, being a first time customer. But, Peter put me at ease when he started explaining what he would be doing. He was extremely professional and very knowledgable. And, the price was the same as my quote. This rarely happens at auto repair shops. I am extremely satisfied with his work in the hot Arizona sun. My AC now works like new! Thanks Peter!
Always helpful, courteous, and professional! Highly recommend!

Peter did a great job installing new AC compressor. Blowing super cold now! Arrived a little early and was done quickly.
My Nissan AC compressor coil was burnt. Peter arrived on time with all the parts and started the work right away. He's very professional and neatly organized with the work. He knows exactly what he's doing (he's more than 30 years experience). He cleared all my doubts and was very friendly. Also, your mechanic saved me $600 when compared with Nissan dealership quote to replace my compressor. I would strongly recommend Peter to any one and I will be very happy to work with him again in future.

Car AC Compressor Replacement Service

What is the AC Compressor all about?

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.

Keep in mind:

This service comes with receiver dryer and orifice tube. It is very common for metals from the compressors to go throughout the system and get caught in different components. If the compressor is replaced without the dryer and the orifice tube, it will ruin the new compressor and it will not be covered by the warranty from parts manufacturers.

How it's done:

  • Check for pressure in the AC system.
  • Check for power and ground at the compressor.
  • If compressor is found to be faulty, remove all of the refrigerant.
  • Remove the compressor, receiver drier, orifice tube, and/or expansion valve.
  • Flush all foreign materials from the AC System.
  • Install new compressor, receiver drier, and orifice tube.
  • Evacuate and recharge the AC system.
  • Leak check for any system leaks.
  • Check for proper operation of AC system.

Our recommendation:

The most common reason for an AC compressor to fail is leaky seals and inadequate lubrication. It is good practice to turn the AC on periodically so that the seals don’t dry up and stay lubricated. If you notice a change in the temperature of the air through the AC vents (not as cold as it should be), get it inspected.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the AC Compressor?

  • No cold air from the vents.
  • Clicking sound from under the engine.
  • AC not working.

How important is this service?

In addition to your comfort, air conditioning systems add value to your vehicle. You should keep your AC fully operational. In some systems, the hot and cold air are blended to achieve the desired temperature setting. In these cases, when the AC system fails, you will not only NOT get any cold air, but the entire temperature regulation is thrown off.
