William was on time, friendly and professional, he completed the repair under 1 hour, gave me a 50 point inspection and estimate and recommend what additional work my car needed. I would recommend him to family and friends. In fact when I decide to get break work done I would like him to be the mechanic. We are also considering him for some work on my spouses car

Rusty is truly a heaven sent Angel. I feel so blessed. He's the best mechanic in the entire world. Any work I need done on my truck I will book him. Before he started the work he did a thorough examination of my truck and was very open and 100% honest about what needed to be repaired right away. He came out to replace my wiring harness and alternator. I like how he showed me that my wiring harness had been scorched and that it needed to be replaced first before replacing the alternator. He went above and beyond. Once he finished the repairs my truck was a good as new. I cranked it up and it sounded really good (It used to have a severe squealing noise before he fixed it). I was so excited and told him that It had been months since my truck sounded this good..

Daniel showed up on time, was meticulous and very attention detailed. He replaced my alternator and checked my power steering leak. The power steering was actually an oil leak and explained where it was and how to go about fixing it. Would highly recommend.

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.
