Great guy. Did the pre-sale inspection thoroughly and efficiently, and brought a series of issues to my attention that would have cost me more than I expected.

Tom came to replace my rear wheel bearing on my bmw, thought it would be somewhat of a easy job, but let me tell you it was a major pain, the hub was ceased onto the bearing and the rear axle was kind of stuck on the hub, let me tell you tom was amazing, the was suppose to be about 1.7 hours, I think he was there about 5hrs and determined to repair my car. Tom was great and will definitely use him again.

All about Alternator Replacement

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.
