He was an excellent diagnosing technician. He explained the problem completely and in terms non-mechanics can understand. Most helpful. 5 stars easy!

Pete was great! I got an oil change and tire rotation on my BMW 328i. Pete arrived a few minutes early, worked fast, and was friendly. He even helped me out by providing me the service engine warning light codes since he needed to clear my oil change light anyways. I'd highly recommend Pete!

Very professional and friendly. Clarissa knows her stuff! No hesitancy whatsoever in recommending her. I was plenty nervous before meeting her and entrusting my hi-priced sports sedan to her but quickly reached the conclusion that there was nothing to worry about...

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.
