Very professional, knowledgeable and courteous employee. Would definitely call him again if I needed service.
I cannot say enough great things about John and our experience with him. Our appointment was set for 5:00, but John contacted me just before 3:00 and asked if I was available, as he was done with her prior appointments. So, that is the first "plus" for him. He got to our house before I did, and started doing what he could until I arrived. When I got there, he greeted me by name and with a great big smile. Super nice, friendly, outgoing and awesome sense of humor. But mostly, knew what he was doing and didn't mind answering questions I had, even if unrelated to the problem he was currently working on. I felt so bad because it was so exremely hot outside, but he didn't complain not one bit. Just did what he was there to do. And he didn't seem to mind my husband and I out there talking to/with him while he worked. As he was finishing up with the replacing the alternator, I asked him a question about the A/C not blowing cold air. He said that we probably had a small leak, but that he could fix that problem, too, at least temporarily. He didn't have the hose he needed with him, but ran down to the auto parts store to get it. Before he left, we asked him if he could just add the Freon and hose to our bill, and he said he could and he would just charge us an extra $20. We were definitely okay with that. He returned and recharged the system. When he got ready to leave, he said everything was taken care of and the receipt was in my email. We asked him if he added the Freon and hose, and he smiled and said "no, don't worry about it". We asked him if he was sure because that was extra stuff he had to do for us, and parts he had to buy. He said he was sure and that all he asked is when/if we needed any more work done, to please ask for him. We will be having some more work done to this vehicle and we will DEFINITELY be getting John for the job. And you best believe we will be recommending him to all of our friends and family. Just a super, super awesome guy. As I stated above, just can't say enough great things about him... He definitely went above and beyond and was happy to do it. Thank you so much, John!! You've made a customer and friend(s) for life.....

Super personable guy, understanding of the issues with the car (as it’s been intermittent) didn’t feel pressured to complete the booking, checked all the signs of what was going on with the alternator and allowed me to make the decision to complete the replacement myself without feeling on the spot. Not only that, the job was completed quicker than I expected, he was prompt and on time - and my dog liked him, bonus! :) - thank you! I recommend Pedro to anyone looking for quality work and professionalism.

Alfredo was the right man for the job. He had the right tools and knowledge needed for the alternator job. One thing I will tell you he has patience and will do the job right! Not many people take care and look out for their customers and he did all that and more. I recommend him to everyone who is using yourmechanic.com and comes across his profile. You will not regret because he's 5 star and tons of reviews do not lie. I forgot to mention one of the most important thing he is very well educated man!

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.
