As soon as Robert got under my car and started talking about my oil pan gasket he noticed a few other small issues that he pointed out. Most mechanics just do the job you asked for and leave it at that. Only quoted me slightly higher for parts. Very professional and nice guy, going to call him again when any work I can't do needs to be done!

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.
