Jose

Jose is awesome! There was an additional service that needed to be done with the front tire bearings but Jose was able to explore options with me and was able to get the job done! Great feedback on any other issues with the car but definitely would like to do business with him again! I'm able to drive to work now!

All about Alternator Repair

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.
