I like the email notification that Patrick was on the way. He worked diligently even though the weather was cold and windy. I like having him come to my vehicle rather than the inconvenience of taking it to a shop. Thanks Patrick.
I received great service from Patrick. Was on time, very knowledgeable, and answered the many questions I asked. Will definitely book Patrick for all future work.

I wish I would have crossed paths with Whitney 20 years ago and saved myself the headaches of dealing with other mechanics. I have taken my car in to be serviced for a broken a/c for years and had given up after being taken advantage of FOUR TIMES! I actually decided I would just live without it but I have a baby now and can't subject her to the heat in my car just because I am am tired of dealing with shady mechanics. When Whitney came out to service my car I already had a prognosis and he was there to do the work that it needed--to fix my air compressor for $550. But he decided he would double check to make sure before he got started, and figured out that my compressor wasn't even broken (as the last mechanic insisted). Turns out it was a slow leak and didn't cost me 1/5th of what I was supposed to be charged. But more than saving me money and more headaches, Whitney put my angst at ease. As a single mom, barely making ends meet, life is hard enough. To have someone in a position to easily be able to taken advantage of me, since I know absolutely nothing about mechanics and NEED to have my car for my baby, he could have easily just changed my compressor, and went about his business with me being none the wiser. But instead he showed some pride in his work and his reputation and did the right thing to help us. I will be a client of his moving forward for all of my car's needs.
I love Your Mechanic! Whitney is amazing and trust worthy. I feel like my car is always in good hands and I found a mechanic that I can trust.

I was very happy with the service provided by Patrick. My AC was blowing out hot air. I had been told by Doctor Auto that I needed a new compressor, which was going to be quite expensive. Luckily, I decided to call Your Mechanic. Patrick was very knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. He called a few days before the appointment to ask a few questions so he could be sure to bring the right parts. He arrived on time on the day of the appointment, then spent some time to do a thorough check of the AC system, and informed me that he did not believe I needed a compressor. He fixed a slow leak, did an AC recharge and then added refrigerant. The AC is now blowing very cold air, and he fixed it for a fraction of what I was told by Doctor Auto. I will definitely call Patrick again for future repairs, and would highly recommend him.

Car AC Repair Service

What to Expect:

For an AC system to work, it needs a gas or liquid substance called refrigerant (R-12 in older cars, R-134a in 1995 and newer cars). Over time, refrigerant can leak from the AC system through seals. If the AC does not have enough refrigerant, it will not blow cold air.

Keep in mind:

Since the AC system is a sealed unit, the only way to tell if the car needs a recharge is if the AC is not blowing cold air through the vents. There are two types of refrigerant. These cannot be interchanged. For older cars, it should be filled with R12 refrigerant or converted to a newer system. For cars made after 1995, the AC should be filled with R134a.

How it's done:

  • Install air conditioning manifold gauge set.
  • Determine if the air conditioning system charge is low.
  • Add the correct refrigerant to top off the air conditioning system.
  • Install thermometer in vents to monitor vent temperatures.
  • Check system for leaks.
  • Check for proper operation of AC system.

Our recommendation:

It is common for refrigerant to leak. If the AC is not as cold as you expect, then it is probably a good time to have the mechanic look at it. Lack of proper cold air can be an indication of other problems with AC (fan not working, AC compressor not working, etc.).

What are the common symptoms indicating you need an Car AC Repair?

  • AC is not working.
  • AC is not blowing cold air.
  • Clicking noise from the engine compartment.

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, in addition to not getting any cold air, the entire temperature regulation can be thrown off.
