Diego was excellent, very knowledgeable about his job skills. Thank you so much.
Diego did a great job. He was thorough and completed the task quickly. He found and showed me a problem with my radiator. He stayed in contact with me while on his way. I highly recommend Diego, you wont be disappointed.

I am very satisfied with Wesley's work and would enthusiastically recommend both him to anyone. He finished the work in less time than was estimated and the car now runs great -- for much less than I would have paid at a garage.

Nick arrived on time and was incredible! The labor he did on my car was no easy task and it was horribly hot an humid. He did a great job (with a smile) and I will definitely be using him again.

Brian was excellent. He was able to correct a previous quote and took the time to explain everything to me. After I have my car I inspected,if I require any more work, I am going to request Brian and any future maintenance I will use him also. He is an excellent mechanic and a wonderful person.

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.
