At Alternative Automotive we know each component of your car's AC has a specific function. A cracked or damaged compressor can cause your car air conditioning to fail. Call today at 760-480-0851 and talk to one of our pro mechanics about repairing your car's AC compressor.

Replacing Your Car's AC Compressor

At Alternative Automotive we recommended that car owners replace the complete AC compressor assembly because the compressor replacement core operates under extreme physical pressure. The compressor is powered by a serpentine belt, which provides the energy needed to compress freon refrigerant to cool the car's cabin. Once compressed, the freon is in a volatile, high-pressure state. This pressure forces the liquid out of the compressor and through the cooling system.

What To Expect When Alternative Automotive In Escondido Replaces Your AC Compressor
  • Alternative Automotive uses AC compressors that are durability-tested for high heat conditions.
  • We use a replacement kit assembly designed to meet or exceed OE function. It includes car AC compressor, accumulator and any needed expansion devices.
  • We use kits with a "Rapid Seal" designed specifically for your compressor. Alternative Automotive's pro mechanics know that even the smallest gaps can cause serious damage to your car's cooling system and engine.

Crazy noise and then smell burning rubber, never good. Got it towed to Alternative Automotive and they diagnosed, fixed and got it back to me for less than I expected! I trust them.

This is the best auto repair/maintenance shop in North County. Forget the dealerships who pace themselves while repairing your car. Alternative Automotive gets your car done in a reasonable amount of time and Daniel handles all your questions with professionalism and efficiency. I don't have to worry about whether it was done right since I haven't had any problems since going here. I definitely recommend Alternative Automotive since Daniel listens to my concerns and then addresses them. He even replaced the battery in my remote!

Absolutely would not take my car anywhere else for service. All the staff including the manager Stephen were kind, polite. My residence is 30 min away, so having a calm and quiet lounge was a plus. It's worth the drive to get the best mechanics to work on your vehicle.! Gigi (*I legally changed my name)
