He was extremely friendly, personal, and knowledgeable.
Chris did a fantastic job on my car. He even went above and beyond by observing other things on my car and giving me advice on questions I asked that didn't relate to the current job. Thanks so much Chris. Great experience for a first time user of this service. Definitely will use again.

Knew his stuff but we ran into a glitch as previous mechanic (not with same company as Tung) somehow lost or took a special boot that we need to finish the job. I will be calling. Ack once dealership gets bolt in
Tung arrived on time, was professional and friendly, went right to work, finished installing alternator in timely manner. Problem solved, no hassle, no worries. I will request Tung in the future when I need car repair. Will also recommend him to my friends. This was a GREAT EXPERIENCE!

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.
