Robert was amazing. Really communicative and efficient. He is also great to chat with on a personal level. He worked on my 1995 BMW m3 for a routine oil and spark plug change and demonstrated his advance knowledge working on European cars. You can tell he is very experienced. I definitely recommend him and look forward to working with him in the future.

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.
