R1234yf REFRIGERANT IS HERE TO STAY!
Fiat Chyrsler, in 2014, started filling AC systems with r1234yf refrigerant and in that same year GM began using the same refrigerant in the Cadillac XTS. Since them, General Motors has gradually been switching over their entire line of automobiles to the R1234yf refrigerant. Now, all kinds of car manufacturers have started implementing the R1234yf refrigerant in their vehicles, including: BMW, GM, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, Hyundai, Honda, Infiniti, Kia, Jeep and more.
By 2019 this type of refrigerant will be standard in all cars. R1234yf refrigerant is very expensive and hardly any auto repair shops in the area offer it besides us. For example: One of our recent customers came in stating that his dealership wanted to charge him $1,400 to recharge R1234yf refrigerant.
AUTO AC COMPRESSOR REPAIR & REPLACEMENT SERVICES
You car’s AC system has many components, including hoses, evaporator, receiver dryer, condenser and compressor. The AC compressor is the heart of your car’s AC system and works like a pump taking in refrigerant, (R-12 for older cars, R-123a in cars 1995 or newer and R1234yf for some cars after 2014) then pressurizing it and passing it along to the evaporator.
The compressor of your AC system has many moving parts including valves and pistons. These parts can fail overtime causing your compressor to stop working. For an AC compressor to work properly, it needs a bearing, clutch and an electrical connector. The clutch is controlled by the serpentine belt, that engages the AC compressor after you turn the AC on.
It is common for the clutch to burn out or for the bearings to fail. When this happens, compressor replacement is usually warranted. Most of the time it is cheaper to replace the compressor than to
Not only can bearings go bad but AC seals can go bad to. Signs of bad AC seals include leaking refrigerant or AC oil. If the seals are bad you will need to get your compressor replaced as there is no way to replace AC seals. Another common sign of compressor failure is debris or sludge in the AC system. If a flush is not possible, those parts may need to be replaced.
