Mark arrived on time, fixed the issue and took the extra time to check belts, fluid levels, tire pressure. He was very knowledgeable, professional and I already plan on using him again for another job.

Theodore was very efficient and finished the job of replacing my alternator with lots of time to spare. After he finished the job, he inspected the car and engine to see if there were other items that potentially needed attention. He was very honest and not like other shops that try to get you to do extra repairs you don't need. He also arrived EARLY to our appointment. Highly recommend Theodore if you're looking for a mechanic who dives right in to do the job right!

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.
