two a/c compressors side by side

Auto A/C compressors repair in town Miami

What the ac compressor in your car is telling you.

 

 

Automotive a/c compressor clutch bearing failures are usually, caused by other components system malfunction and not the hvac compressor clutch assembly bearing itself.

 

TIME SAVES YOU MONEY

 

Having your a/c system inspected as soon as you noticed a decrease in cooling capacity or abnormal noises when the a/c is on could save you time and money.

 

 

Replacing the noisy bearing without finding the root of the problem and fixing it permanently will only lead to premature damage of a new ac compressor and a waste of time and money.

 

How does  a damaged ac compressor sound like ?

 

Excessively elevated temperature and lack of lubrication are the biggest enemies of any automotive a/c compressor bearings. Slipping compressor clutches can generates temperatures as high as 1,200 degrees F; this tremendous amount of heat will quickly melt down the bearing seal. The bearing loses its grease and, in the process, before it locks up completely it gets rough and noisy.

 

 

How to know if it is just the compressor bearing or the whole compressor assembly?
