This is 2nd time Jay has worked on my BMW, he is reliable and explained everything to me. He replaced front brake pads and rotors and did an oil change. So convenient having work done at my house by an experienced, reliable and friendly mechanic. Will be making an appointment for back brakes very soon. Thanks Jay.

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 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.
