On time, kept me informed throughout process, discovered a broken motor mount that probably saved several hundred dollars on future repairs. Neat, clean, polite, professional. will definitely request him again should the need arise. Also repairs were probably $250-400 cheaper than a dealer.
Early and did a good job

Had my car serviced today; an alternator replacement, in which I supplied the part. I would've given him 5 stars, but as soon as I opened the hood, he upsold me for a whole extra hour of labor. Still, it was cheaper and more convenient than having it towed and worked on in a shop.

Though it took 3 visits for him to fix oil leak he seem to have done it. But in the process the windshield is broken which has to be fixed. And I have not driven the car yet. Have to drive and watch car for few days to see how it behaves. Then I will come me back and update this review again. For now looks good

Aaron replaced the alternator in my Honda with ease. He was prompt, professional, and I will definitely book Aaron again for other services. It goes without saying, I would recommend Aaron to my friends and family.

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.
