I cannot say enough great things about John and our experience with him. Our appointment was set for 5:00, but John contacted me just before 3:00 and asked if I was available, as he was done with her prior appointments. So, that is the first "plus" for him. He got to our house before I did, and started doing what he could until I arrived. When I got there, he greeted me by name and with a great big smile. Super nice, friendly, outgoing and awesome sense of humor. But mostly, knew what he was doing and didn't mind answering questions I had, even if unrelated to the problem he was currently working on. I felt so bad because it was so exremely hot outside, but he didn't complain not one bit. Just did what he was there to do. And he didn't seem to mind my husband and I out there talking to/with him while he worked. As he was finishing up with the replacing the alternator, I asked him a question about the A/C not blowing cold air. He said that we probably had a small leak, but that he could fix that problem, too, at least temporarily. He didn't have the hose he needed with him, but ran down to the auto parts store to get it. Before he left, we asked him if he could just add the Freon and hose to our bill, and he said he could and he would just charge us an extra $20. We were definitely okay with that. He returned and recharged the system. When he got ready to leave, he said everything was taken care of and the receipt was in my email. We asked him if he added the Freon and hose, and he smiled and said "no, don't worry about it". We asked him if he was sure because that was extra stuff he had to do for us, and parts he had to buy. He said he was sure and that all he asked is when/if we needed any more work done, to please ask for him. We will be having some more work done to this vehicle and we will DEFINITELY be getting John for the job. And you best believe we will be recommending him to all of our friends and family. Just a super, super awesome guy. As I stated above, just can't say enough great things about him... He definitely went above and beyond and was happy to do it. Thank you so much, John!! You've made a customer and friend(s) for life.....

Thank you soo much! Michael was great, he was very nice and very helpful. I’m pregnant and due in a matter of days and he was able to fit me in sooner than would of been possible and finish the job so I could for sure have a car when the time comes. I’ve been spending a ton on Uber’s and it’s such a waste when you really think about it. I love this service, it’s so great to have piece of mind that someone’s not going to flake on you and not show up like I’ve had happen with a different mobile mechanic (that is not on this service). He was on time and got straight to work. He’s an excellent worker and is fast and hard working. I’m going to have him back to fix the alternator on my Cadillac and possibly some other work I will need done in the future. I definitely recommend Michael to others, he will not disappoint.

I had been having issue with my car for almost 2 months. The car was not starting. I went to local "Toughy" dealer and he said its a battery problem and replaced which costed huge amount. With in a week i got the problem again and AAA road side assistant person came and started the car. He said it could be starter issue. Then when i went to dealer, he said its not starter issue but issue with alternator. That moment i decided the dealer is cheating me. I checked in online and found this site. I mentioned it could be one of Starter or Alternator issue. Joshua confirmed it is Starter issue only and he replaced. Its been ore than 2 months till date and no further issues. Going forward i am going to use this service for all my car needs

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.
