Ben's knowledge of my 30 year old Bronco was VERY reassuring. He did the job I asked for without recommending a bunch of extra work like most shops will do. Most mechanics at these shops are younger than the truck and have never worked on a carburetor. I have already asked for a quote to have Ben return to do more maintenance work on the truck.

Stefan, was late due to correct part not arriving on time, which ended up not being correct and going back to get the correct one. He told us battery and belt were shot due to bad alternator and therefore we would need to get these also. He did a great job and we would ask for him again 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.
