Peter was great! I have been to two mechanics before and they had no idea what was wrong with my car. They claim they fixed it and I was still having the same issue. First appointment with Peter he came and inspect explained to my what he believe it was. Made a second appointment to change all spark plugs, he wast thorough and fast. Explained to me exactly what is wrong with the car and how he fixed it. He knows what he is talking about. I'll definitely be willing to use his services again!

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.
