Thank you Joshua. You sure know what you're doing. The job was completed in a timely manner. Very professional. Your diagnosis and repairs did the job. My mom's car passed smog and is now on the road again. I will be contacting you regarding my 1992 Toyota Pick-up. Thanks again so much.

Great experience. I had ordered the wrong part originally (the Buick engine is crazy, what I thought was the front was actually the side. Go figure. That's why my battery is under the passenger seat in the back.) Anyway, Ben rescheduled the appt and he called me to let me know that he had the correct parts. He showed up on time (a little early) at my work-site. He is very professional and took the time to show me the malfunctioned parts. The quote was perfect. I had checked at a couple of garages beforehand and the price was a couple of hundred higher. I need a couple of other things done and will defiantly be scheduling with Ben 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.
