Shaun is amazing at what he does we really appreciated his time and patience's with are car and us and even though the problem is internal and need to be fixed at the dealership he did everything he was hired to do! I couldn't of ask for a better mechanic to work on my car he is truly top of the line and goes above and beyond to make sure his customers are happy and understands what's going on start to finish! I wish I could give him more stars because he truly deserves it!
Shaun was amazing! He was on time, very friendly, and got everything done in a reasonable time. Not only did he fix the problem, he also made recommendations for other problems on the car. He also gave me a inexpensive quote to get the other things on my car fixed. Overall I was very pleased with this experience, I will definitely use them again and and recommend them to everyone.

One of the best mechanics I've ever dealt with Jose was on time very polite and kind very confident and knowledgeable about the job he was doing would definitely recommend Jose to anyone in need of car maintenance he is truly a FANTASTIC mechanic!
I've had to deal with other auto mechanics since I started driving cars. This is the first time I've been able to say that I'm impressed by, first the quickness at which Jose completed the alternator change, and with honest up front cost of the service he provided. What also impressed me was the appointment was set for 8:30 am Jose arrived at 8:29. He would been here sooner but the address took him to the front entrance of my mobile home park, and he had to find the lot number. He completed the job in 1/2 hour and I was back on the road again by 9:15 am. WOW, I normally would have been all day waiting for a mechanic just to look at my car then given a time that it would be finished. Thanks for the prompt, and honest services you've provided!

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.
