I was very pleased from the moment Whitney pulled up. Friendly, easy to talk to, professional and informative. This was a very pleasant experience, especially since it was the first time I have used this service and new nothing about it.
Whitney explains what he's trying to do and why? He also tells you what has to be done at the dealer if the parts are not available.

Quick work, done well!
We are so thrilled to have found Peter as our new mechanic. He is very thorough and knowledgeable. He is also friendly, professional, and extremely honest. He explained to us exactly what services were needed on our vehicle to repair the air conditioner and provided us with an written estimate of the cost. He literally saved us thousands of dollars in repair costs. A local major competitor quoted us a repair cost of a minimum of $1,400 and said that the cost would go up to $2,400 if they discovered an additional part was required. Peter charged us only $202, plus performed the work at our home. The air conditioner in our 2004 Mazda Miata has honestly never worked so great--it always blew out warm air. We just assumed it was how that particular car was manufactured. We would highly recommend Peter to anyone who is in need of an experienced and honest mechanic.

Max was very efficient and personable, and did a great job for me..
Max was great! Very professional, friendly, and courteous. He did an awesome job. I paid exactly what I was quoted. No surprises. He came to my house to do an AC recharge,and got the AC blowing nice cold air again in less than 30 minutes. Very efficient,but a job done correctly. He's an excellent mechanic. YourMechanic is so convenient and the prices are reasonable. I'll definitely be using this service and book Max again.

What a great service model -- so much more convenient than managing the logistics of getting the car to the dealer or garage and figuring out rides to and from work. As all the other reviewers have noted, Derek was absolutely fantastic -- consummate professional, great communicator, checked out our (somewhat vague) concerns about the brakes and assured us that all looked good (though offered to replace if we chose to go that route), and took the time to explain everything he found and fixed. This was a fabulous car repair experience with a wonderful mechanic!

Came across YourMechanic.com in an article in Inc. Magazine... Needed my A/C recharged as I had just moved to Vegas and realized it get's pretty hot here in the summer and would definitely be needing my A/C so I thought I would give it a try. Very pleased! Saved about $60 over what anyone of the local shops would have charged me. Scott was excellent and easy to communicate with. Highly recommend them.

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.
