Wesley was awesome! Very knowledgeable and courteous. He did a great job on my car and he doesn't "run over" the time allotted for the appointment.
Wesley was about as good as you can get. He was prompt, courteous, attentive, and best of all quick. He showed up with 2 replacement alternators.. and had the job done in less than the time it would have taken me to drive to a shop.. The dude rocks.

Torrieantos did an incredible job getting my Acura back in running condition. To have the luxury of NOT towing the car to a garage is great but add to that a very reasonable price and excellent service...you cannot ask for more!
Trey was fast, clean and has excellent car knowledge. A great asset for customer service!

He know's his stuff!! He diagnosed the problem even without looking at the car. A++++++
Eric was very professional and even showed up earlier than I had expected him to. He got my car up and running in no time, was truly a life safer saving me the money of having to get at tow to get my car to the repair shop.

Aaron came to my office building and replaced the alternator on my car. He also checked my car thoroughly and told me about the beginning of a little problem that I'll keep an eye on and plan on having him take care of in a couple months. I am very, very pleased with Aaron and his friendly, down-to-earth personality; I was comfortable talking over any concerns I had. He listened and gave me good advice. I'll continue calling on him to keep my 1996 Toyota Camry in good shape (it's a great car). I recommend him 100%.

Terry was very professional and honest . He did a great job of communicating some issues with my engine but did not pressure me to get work done that I didn't need at this time. I highly recommend Terry.

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.
