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-134a for cars 1993 or newer and R1234yf for some cars after 2014) then pressurizing it and passing it along to the evaporator.
FAULTY AC COMPRESSOR PARTS
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.
AC COMPRESSOR REPLACEMENT
It is common for the clutch to burn out or for the bearings to fail. When this happens, ac compressor replacement is usually warranted. Most of the time it is cheaper to replace the compressor than to repair it.
Not only can ac compressor 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.
