I trust the shop to do the correct repair need. I trust thet they will only do what is needed.

The owner, Alan Blanchard, is a very ethical and fair person, and in the 35 years he has worked on my cars I have always been treated fair and respectfully. Not only is he a trusted mechanic, but a good person.

This is one of the most professional shops I've ever dealt with, in 40 years of car ownership, of many makes/models. Alan and Paul are straight shooters, and very highly knowledgeable. No BS... just the facts. Service like this is a rare find these days, but SO appreciated. Brad Fisk

The first thing to do is test the alternator output. Additional testing for fault codes might be necessary to find your problem. Parts quality has been an increasing problem in recent years. We can test your system and tell you exactly what is wrong. Please contact us if you would like to schedule an appointment.

Good day the alternator that was installed could be defective the system should have been checked to determine if the alternator was actually the problem. Was there any other symptoms before the alternator was replaced ( battery going, dead jump starting needed )
Oil has been changed also
Good morning,
Unfortunately, I do not have enough information to diagnose your condition. Have to checked the fault codes? I would recommend one of our techs check out the car. Our first appointment is August 9th. Please contact us if you would like to schedule.
