Ok so Danny was late for our 3PM appointment but to be fair both yourmechanic and Danny did notify me that he would be running late because his prior appointment ran over and I can understand that. Upon arriving at my home Danny was respectful and professional. We did have to clear up some points on what was to be done but that was more about yourmechanic than Danny. One he got going Danny replaced my busted alternator and got my car back on track. Overall I was very impressed with Danny's service.

Emmette came today to replace my alternator. Although I had an evening appointment he phoned to ask if he could schedule earlier and this couldn't make me happier. He showed right away and completed the work in record time. He was very informative and was able to answer all of my questions. I am very pleased with his work and his kind demeanor. Thank you!

Emanuel is absolutely awesome, and he gave me the best car-repair experience I have ever had over 20 years! I would not hesitate to use him next time my cars needs any service! It is super convenient for me, I definitely saved money and time!!! THIS IS REVOLUTIONARY!! Emanuel called ahead of time to validate the problem and the fix I requested. He came to our appointment ahead of time, explained the issue and educated me on what he was doing in detail while I was watching. He demonstrated a high level of integrity I rarely experienced in the car-repair industry by recommending NOT to replace the drive belt I already agreed to replace while making appointment, since upon his inspection the drive belt is in excellent condition. That saved me money. After he successfully replaced the alternator, he also checked my brakes and transmission fluid and recommended future services. He is very knowledgable, friendly, professional, trustworthy. We became good friends after the service!

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.
