I know that I stated that Gary did not arrive on time, but that was not HIS fault. He actually called about two hours before the scheduled time to tell me that he could come earlier, but in the midst of waiting for me to return his call he was contacted by his Supervisor and sent on another job. He then informed me that he would be here at 4:30 instead of 3:00 and was here by 4:15. I appreciate his professionalism and speed and will be recommending him to my family members who are looking to get some work done on their vehicles.

like the other reviewers, I found him knowledgeable and honest. He took extra time to look at another vehicle of mine. Your Mechanix has a high-quality mechanic in Jeff.

Peter was sent out to my location after another service tech had started a job but became ill during the repair and had to leave. Peter was able to resolve the issue that the other technician was unable to fix after a short period of time. After the repair had been completed, Peter was doing a check on all of the systems to make sure everything was running correctly and noticed that the AC wasn't blowing cold. After a small inspection he was able to find that the first technician had crushed a connector to the AC unit. He immediately got on the phone with the office and attempted to locate the PC needed. He returned less than 2 hours later and spent a good deal of time repairing that piece. I would highly recommend Peter to anyone who is looking for an honest, reliable, timely repairman

Other than being a very good/competent mechanic, he was a very nice guy. I loved how thorough he was in identifying areas of concern. He wasn’t “selling”, but rather advising. I like doing business with people like Dean. I trust him.

Alternator Repair Service

How does an alternator help your car run?

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.

Alternator

Before repairing the alternator:

The mechanic should check the entire charging system before installing a new alternator, including checking battery cables for corrosion and the condition of the battery.

Steps when replacing an alternator:

  • Inspect entire charging system (battery, cables, alternator).
  • Inspect the drive belts.
  • Test alternator output.
  • Remove and replace alternator if found to be faulty.
  • Re-test alternator output.

Our recommendation for alternator replacements:

Ask your mechanic to inspect the condition of the charging system during every major service. The mechanic should also clean and tighten the battery cables during every major service.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Alternator?

  • Dead battery or battery will not hold a charge.
  • Dim lights.
  • Battery warning light is on.

Why repairing your alternator is important:

Your alternator charges your battery, which powers the electronics in your vehicle, such as the radio and the air conditioning. The battery is also needed to turn on your vehicle. A malfunctioning alternator will not charge your car’s battery, and your vehicle will eventually run out of battery life and not be able to start.
