Carlos was indeed a 5 star mechanic! He identified the problem with my car, he used his time efficiently and took the time out to explain the variables that were hindering my car in addition to recommendations for preventive care. I have NEVER met an honest mechanic, Carlos has truly revived my faith that not everyone is out for a quick buck. Kudos to the use of knowledge, expertise and professionalism of Carlos!

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.
