Chet

Chet has been servicing my car for a couple of times now. I have a problem with my "service engine soon" that keeps coming on. Chet has my car working much better now and he has come back to "fix the problem with the engine light on again and see what else it may require." He fixed some other things I needed, but the light remains on still. He said and assured me that if anything goes bad I can phone him. My runs a lot better, but these darn cars! Who knows! I know my car will require more things down the line after the holidays, so I am paying attention to the signs... Thank you!

Need more staff to answer problems and solution. Was little frustrated to get answer from staff Houston is very hot city. Mechanics need to start working as early or late in evening for summer time. Weather is very important Houston.

All about Alternator Repair

The alternator is the component that charges the battery in your car. When you use electrical components in your car (stereo, lights, etc.), the battery loses power. The alternator recharges the battery, replenishing the lost battery power. The alternator is located in the engine compartment. If the alternator is not working properly, your car will only stay running for as long as the battery has power stored. Once the battery loses power, your car will not start. Normally, a malfunctioning alternator will turn on the battery warning light or will have a low volt gauge reading.
