Jacob was very friendly and took the time to explain what he was doing. I was very pleased and didn’t feel like I was being taken advantage of. Even though it was out of his area I hope I can ask him to continue to work on my cars.
No stress mechanic that will get the job done. His communication is great and his work is excellent.

Excellent service from Mechanic Mike. Came earlier since he was done with his previous job, and was done before we knew it. Would recommend him to anyone!

I'm a first time customer, who's likely to be a customer for life now! What an amazing service. Peter was prompt, courteous and very thorough. This is the 2nd major repair to my car in less than month. During my prior experience I was very anxious and never felt comfortable that I was actually getting what I was paying for. With my alternator replacement I feel confident the work promised was completed, my entire vehicle was inspected and I don't see getting stranded again anytime soon.

Choeun arrived early and ready to work. He was very nice, courteous and knowledgeable about the repair. He got set up and started the repair, upon removing the alternator he found that the part he had brought was different and could not be used. Before letting me know what happened, he had already called the local Autozone and confirmed that they had the part in stock and kept it on hold for me. He explained to me how the invoice price would be adjusted so I never had any worries. He made everything easy and seamless. He answered all my questions and concerns honestly and had many helpful tips for my cars maintenance. Due to Choeuns professionalism and the fact that he went above and beyond to help make the repair successful I would high recommend him as well as this 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.
