Friendly, professional and timely! I couldn’t move my car so for him to be able to come to me was great. He was quick, efficient and made sure all my questions about other things he wasn’t there for were answered before he left. Had an appointment at 3:30pm and he called me that he was at my home at exactly that time. Will definitely be calling him for future fixes

Denny is very thorough and went through all the steps to diagnose my car and than some. Someone told me my car needed an alternator. Denny did all the steps to make sure that was the issue. Come to find out it was a bad cell in my battery. He takes his time which i love because you don't have to worry about him getting over on you! I highly recommend him! I most definitely will be using him again!

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.

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.
