Excellent mechanic, works quickly, and is candid about what is wrong with your vehicle.
Very professional, quick, and efficient. Arrived before his scheduled time expained what he needed to do and roughly how long it took. I ran some errands and when I came back it was with in 5 minutes of being fixed. Will be a returning customer and will recommend.

He did a great job and was very knowledgeable. My husband and I were hesitant due to some bad reviews we saw on BBB from people across the country regarding their experience with other mechanics. Thank God we got Henry and not one of those others. Two other mechanics brushed us off because they were scared to deal with our car because it was so tricky. He kept us informed of any delay he was having before we had to reach out to him. From the minute he arrived he was very warm with a positive attitude, was not rushing, and paid attention to detail. We will definitely book him again for our next job.

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.
