Patrick showed up early for our appointments, went over the issues of my car and laid out the options of what I could do afterwards. He is very down to earth and is honest about the problem at hand. My car was having a problem overheating so after inspecting the car and troubleshooting he said that the car might have to require work on it up to $800+ which they could do but he suggested that there were other cheaper options for me to try. I would totally recommend him.

Very satisfied. Robert diagnosed the problem correctly and fixed it on the spot. He was courteous and helpful, and explained clearly what he was going to do, and why. He also gave me an estimate for some necessary further work, and showed me why that also needs to be done eventually. He is obviously a competent mechanic and understands the electronics involved. I would be glad to work with him again.

My appointment was late in the day so I was not surprised that the mechanic was a little behind schedule but was pleased to have gotten a call to say so. The job was done in good time and clean. Theodore's experience showed in our conversations about the work, other potential jobs, and whether they were worth it to me as I decide whether to keep the car. Very patient, careful explanations that expanded my own knowledge base. Definitely my first call for next time. Thanks Theodore, and a great price!

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.
