Honorio was punctual and prepared. He took the time to thoroughly explain what he was doing and what needed to be done with my car. I would definitely recommend him!
After getting the work agreed upon with the main office, the mechanic was able to complete the job. So far so good. It took him a while longer to replace the part but I guess that goes with the territory. Working on cars sight unseen has the potential for unexpected situations. The mechanic worked away until the alternator was replaced so kudos for his hard work. I enjoyed being able to continue my telecom at home while the work was being done. Very convenient.

He was amazing on time and very professional he did a alternator, timing tensioner belt and serpentine belt in less than 3 hours and three different traditional mechanics said it would take 4 days and 2500 dollars more...Thanks Tung
Very good experience. He did a great job went right to work and finished in a timely manner. I found my mechanic will request Tung for next job.

Nice guy, but he installed an alternator that turned out to be very noisy, and, upon a followup inspection, was bad. I don't fault him for the bad part, it happens, I fault him for not being able to hear that something is off, when someone who knows so little about cars, such as myself, can.

Despite the part delay, rescheduled appointment, obnoxious heat and a completely dead battery (none of which was at the fault of Brikk) Brikk was able to power through and get me and my G8 back on the street. Brikk gave me some oil lubricating tips for my over 150,000 mile ride. He trusted the information I provided about my alternator issues and was able to complete the job without any glitches as far as I know. 1st experience already referring... Thanks a bunch.

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.
