Auto Ac Compressor Replacement in Castro Valley
At Adams Autoworx in Castro Valley we offer broad range of auto air conditioning maintenance services and repairs. AC Compressor replacement is one of these services. The heart of the automotive air conditioning system is the A/C compressor. Its job is to pressurize the refrigerant, and to pass it along to the evaporator. When it fails, so does the entire a/c system – cold air is not available.
The ac compressor has many moving parts, which means that sooner or later it will fail. Valves and pistons brake, sometimes, when parts fail while in motion, they may disperse debris which in turn damage more parts of the air conditioning system. If that occurs, not only should the ac compressor be replaced, but so should the receiver dryer and orifice tube. Complete flush of the system is also recommended to get rid of any contaminants and debris.
Other parts that could fail are electrical connector, bearing, compressor clutch. If the compressor seal fails, leaks that result may damage other components.
Two likely signs of compressor problems:
- No cold air from the vents.
- Clicking sound from under the engine
Likely as they are, they are not always 100% indicative that the a/c compressor is the culprit. But you should get your vehicle to Adams Autoworx for an ac system inspection.
