What does an air conditioning compressor do?

The AC compressor pumps and pressurises the refrigerant through the air conditioning system, feeding cold air into your car. The compressor is powered by your car’s engine.

How often should a compressor need replacing?

A well-maintained and properly serviced compressor could last as long as your car does. However, as with all vehicle components, they’re prone to wear and tear. Leakage and blockage can create irreparable damage.

The law, vehicle regulations and your MOT

A **faulty air compressor **won’t affect your car’s MOT, but it can affect the comfort of you and your passengers. It’s worth keeping your air conditioning running correctly as the impact it can have on your vehicle’s fuel efficiency could affect the day-to-day cost of your motoring.

What happens when we replace your AC compressor?

Our efficient and fully qualified mechanics will check for possible fault codes relating to your air conditioning that could lead them directly to a compressor fault.

The air conditioning system will be checked thoroughly, including electric and pressure components.

Wherever required your compressor will be replaced, and you’ll be advised of any other connected or associated problems arising from its malfunction. Important associated parts will also be removed and cleaned.

You will be advised of any other parts that may need to be replaced for the best operation and health of your vehicle. This includes replacement of refrigerant and possibly the orifice tube and receiver dryer.

Once the faulty compressor has been replaced, our mechanics will test it thoroughly to ensure the correct running of the new part and make any adjustments required for its premium operation.

What causes an AC compressor to stop working correctly?

Over time, the internal components of a compressor can wear or fail, including the seals that cannot be replaced independently. In other cases, the valves, pistons, bearings or clutch may need replacing, and it could be a cheaper option to replace the complete unit rather than each of the individual parts. Your compressor may have stopped working properly due to infiltration by dirt and debris, or from being affected by other faulty parts in the system.

Symptoms of a malfunctioning AC compressor

Your air con doesn’t work

If the air conditioning in your car doesn’t function as it normally would then it could be down to a faulty compressor.

There is no cool air

If your air vents aren’t producing cool air when your AC is operational, it could be your compressor that’s malfunctioning.

Your fuel consumption isn’t as good as normal

A malfunctioning compressor could also affect your fuel consumption, so if you notice that you’re not achieving your usual mpg, it could be time to have your compressor checked.

Unusual noises in the engine bay

If you hear a ticking noise coming from your engine, then this could be a sign that your compressor is damaged. The AC unit is damp If there are patches of fluid around the AC unit, this could also be a sign of a faulty compressor.

Jaguar

Jaguar is the luxury vehicle brand of Jaguar Land Rover.

Jaguar first appeared as a brand in 1945, when SS Cars Ltd. changed its name at a shareholder meeting; the company went on to have a variety of ownerships and mergers, including those with British Leyland, Ford and Tata Motors. After buying both Jaguar and Land Rover from Ford, Tata Motors combined both to create Jaguar Land Rover in 2013.

How popular is Jaguar in the United Kingdom?

This executive British luxury brand currently has 360k vehicles on the road in the UK. Given their matching luxury price tag, it would be acceptable to think that the numbers would remain a steady constant, yet the marque has shown consistently growing numbers since the mid-1990s.

This could be partly due to recent fresh marketing strategies, targeting younger professionals to boost the sale of units, rather than relying on the older, executive drivers the brand previously associated with.

High-end, luxury executive motoring

The RRP of their cheapest model, the Jaguar E-Pace, hits the market at over £29k, and as each model brings something different to the range, their prices peak with the standard level Jaguar XJ starting at £65k. That’s before you begin to choose from the mass of customisations options, available at an added cost when building the finished specification of your car.

Jaguar: high-performance sports cars

There’s a lot more to a Jaguar than luxury upholstery and the famous badge on the grill.

Throughout history, Jaguar has been instrumental in providing high-spec indulgent sports cars; they are a combination of opulent luxury, cutting-edge technology, sporting dynamics and performance. Jaguar makes cars that can take you from 0–60mph in under 4 seconds with top speeds of over 200mph, but without any compromise to comfort and functionality.

Keeping up with today’s trends

An important addition to the Jaguar line-up was made in March 2018; the Jaguar I-Pace was their first electric car, and an SUV to boot. A bold decision to introduce new fuel technologies into a relatively new and growing model type, this was their car to compete against the Porsche Cayenne and long-established Range Rover.

Jaguar’s reliability and reputation

Jaguar ranked a long way down the list at 28th out of the 30 car brands in the What Car? Reliability Survey in 2018. Despite being a high-end luxury brand, Jaguar car owners reported more repairs at higher costs than many of their competitors.
