Chris was early, fast and straight forward with no BS. My quote includes an extra belt that in the end wasn't needed so I received a discount/refund after the service was done. I recommend Chris highly!
Great, Chris came early and replaced the alternator quickly.

Showed up on time and did a great job.
Hani got to my house on time and got the work done in less time than expected. He answered all of my questions about the parts he replaced and was straight forward about what services I will need in the future and how soon I would actually need them. After the replacement was installed he hung around for 15 minutes with the engine running to make sure everything was working properly. Definitely a much better vibe than I get going to a "normal" mechanic in a shop and the price was much better than the dealership cost. Highly recommend.

First off, he showed up early. Almost an hour. Can't beat that. Thought we had a bad alternator and we were stuck in Vegas. Turns out it was just the drive to Vegas that drained the battery as well as what could be a parastic drain.. James had us jumped as well as offering good advice on why our battery was starting to crap out. He did so in a way that he wasn't talking down to us or treating us like we were dumb like most mechanics do. He adjusted the price of service to reflect what work he actually did and we were on our way. If our car ever breaks down in the Vegas area..or if you break down..get James and you won't regret it.

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.
