Joaquin repaired the alternator on my wife's car and showed me all the work that he had done. He was very professional and knowledgable about fixing vehicles. I would call him again to repair my vehicle.
Joaquin explained why I would be needing to either recharge the battery or replace it so that the alternator can connect and the car could start up again. He was patient and professional

Stacy notified us when he was heading to our home. When Stacy arrived, he was very friendly and professional and listened to the issues we were having with our vehicle. He quickly diagnosed the problem and put a new alternator in our vehicle. He worked quickly and was very knowledgeable. He even went as far as to offer to diagnose another vehicle at our home (for free) that we were having issues with. We were hesitant about using this service since this was our first time, however, this will be our new method of service for our vehicles. We would highly recommend Stacy and we will definitely be hiring Stacy again for any future mechanic issues!!!

I was extremely impressed with Gregory and this type of vehicle service experience. Wish I would have known about it before, but will certainly use it and spread the word going forward.

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.
