It is making a grinding noise. They said they have to replace everything.

hot air
Ford Mechanic: Ricardo Hohl, Master Certified Tech replied 8 years ago

hi, the price they are quoting you is very hi, the compressor complete with pulley and clutch and plate should be a complete unit and the price on that is 435$ total, the price on the flush is only 65$ not 117$ as they state, the o ring kit should be no more then 45$, expansion valve is 105$, accumulator is 178$ and in total is $ 945.00 compare to $1385 they are adding $440.00 on the parts and the labor should be 3.5 hours times their labor cost, and to tell you the truth you only need the compressor, accumulator, and the flush, this should be enough to get the a/c to work, fine , i will suggest to get another opinion some place else.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
