Good mechanic. Did some troubleshooting on the car before his final diagnosis. I called in for a alternator and he made sure it wasn't actually the battery etc before swapping the more expensive alternator out. On time. I would highly recommend Scott. I usually do my own work but did not have time to deal with this issue. I can say he does great work.

He was came earlier with the right part and great professional services. He went over what was the problem, gave an estimate of the time expected to complete work. When completed within the time he gave, gave diagnosis of other needed repairs, but did not pressure me to have the work done. I was apprehensive of using your mechanic based on some of reviews, but after praying I took a leap of faith. It was a wonderful experience. My alternator was bad and was replaced with a new one . The cost was reasonable. I would use this service again especially if Tomas is my mechanic.

Installed everything perfect I very much appreciated it, however now the button on the driver side door for the passenger side window does not work. I'm not sure if it was from his doing or what but it worked fine prior to him fixing it. I would like this to be addressed immediately.

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.
