Eladio

Nice, courteous and professional disposition. Quickly figured out how to tackle what needed to be done. Took job seriously, doing overall assessment of vehicle and pointing out things that needed to be addressed. Gives the impression that he cares about your car, instead of treating it just like "another car sitting around in the shop." Whereas many mechanics may be good at Doing Things, they may not be so good in Communicating What they're doing. Eladio appears to be able to do both effectively. Worked efficiently, finishing the job sooner than I'd expected. After break to bathroom, returned to wrap-up the service call quicker than I could finish eating my meal.

David was very efficient. He was able to determine what our problem was and schedule an appointment for repair. He arrived on time and completed the job .within the time line that he had set. I will recommend his services to anyone in need of a good mechanic. I will also add that he is available to check out a car before you buy that can save money on immediate repairs.

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.
