Christopher is awesome all the way around; Not just as a mechanic, but as a person. I really appreciate his courtesy, kindness and most of all customer service. Not only did he do an awesome job fixing my car, he just made me feel good about the person that I am. Please make sure you reward him financially, because he certainly is the best mechanic that I have ever come across and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. Sincerely, Ms. Thomasina!

My car couldn't start. After searching online and comparing the symptoms, I believed it was due to a failed alternator that slowly drained the battery. I booked the first available appointment at 1:15pm and I also left a note stating that he could come earlier if he finished his morning job earlier. On the day before the appointment, a friend drove me to AutoZone to have the car battery full charged. On the day of the appointment, I received a text at 11:25am saying he was on his way. He arrived at 11:45am. He asked me who diagnosed the alternator failure. I told him the symptoms and the information I found online. He agreed. It is great that he wanted to make sure the diagnosis was correct first. 50 minutes later, he had the alternator replaced and also gave me a quote for another service needed. Since my car battery was already fully charged, I was able to drive the car right away. He is very knowledgeable, friendly, and answered all my questions. I highly recommend him.

I was nervous about using a service like this, but Alex was awesome! He called when he was close and let me know he was making a stop for 10-15 minutes (later found out it was to grab something to eat/drink). Even so, he still arrived on-time, actually just before the scheduled start time. Did a great job understanding the issue and explaining what the symptoms I was seeing was. Replaced my alternator and drive belt quickly and spent time explaining what he saw on the inspection - which thankfully wasn't much, just some new brake pads which I knew was coming pretty soon. As for the service, quick and easy scheduling and saved a ton over the typical shop. Alex was great and will be using him again for our auto needs. Thanks Alex!

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.
