Great experience! Easy to communicate with. When he pulled up, his truck was what I envisioned all mobile mechanics would resemble. All of his tools and equipment made him look like a repair shop on wheels. He also finished the job in a timely manner. Great job!!!
My experience was awesome. He arrive timely like 3:17p at my 3:15p appointment. Richard was very courteous and his customer service was outstanding. It only took him about 37 minutes to complete the job. I am very pleased and impressed.

Franky made time to squeeze me in at the end of the day Friday,(he could have easily went home after his last job, and came Sat when the appointment was scheduled). It was cold, windy, and getting dark, but I don't think he ever stopped smiling! He changed the alternator and sent a quote over for a pulley I need to have repaired. He explained everything thoroughly, and told me what could wait. He was professional, honest, and pleasant. He saved me a ton of money, time, and stress. Even when learning I need to change a pulley, asap, the smiling helped! Lol! I will definitely use his services again, and recommend him to everyone I know! THANKS FRANKY!

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.
