Peter Sario was very knowledgeable very easy to talk to the man knows what he's talking about and he knows what he's doing I will recommend him to my family and Friends he definitely did an awesome job I am super satisfied Peter you the man.
He showed up a few minutes early which was nice, he talked over my services with me to make sure that he would be fixing the correct problem. He replaced my a.c. compressor and did it very fast. He got it done in about 2 hours, which is less than half the quoted time. He seemed knowledgeable and experienced. What I like the most is that he went above and beyond by tightening my a.c. and power steering belt without me even asking. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing service done.

Carlos R. was incredible, everything that I have come to expect of the YourMechanic technicians. I was cancelled on 3 times this week by another tech, forced to rent a car and take unexpected costly Uber trips, had to take off 4 hours of work to be there on time for the previous appointments (was cancelled on last minute anyways), damaged integrity/trust with a project team at work and had to push a big deadline back, had a horrible experience (ongoing unfortunately) with communication from a service manager after 6 attempts to just get a chance to talk to someone (not even a call, but I get an email at 11PM with info I already had the night before my 7AM appointment??), and to top it off all of that happening BEFORE SOMEONE EVEN LOOKED AT MY VEHICLE a week later. Needless to say, my service ended up costing me well over 100% of what I willingly paid today for the quality work.. not exactly what they advertise at YourMechanic (professional, convenient, fair priced, timly, hassle free, honest). Carlos R. made a huge impact on me today and likely the only reason I'd even consider coming back, and likely for now he's all I'd even consider going to. Professional, communicative, skilled, quick, and an all around great guy. I sincerely hope that YourMechanic can right some wrongs from this week, but they're doing one thing very right and that's having Carlos R. Thank you sir for giving me a little hope when I can't even get a chance to talk to someone on the phone. You're doing everything right!

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.
