Alternator Repair Service & Cost

What is the Alternator all about?

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

Keep in mind:

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.

How it's done:

  • 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:

Ask your mechanic to inspect the condition of the charging system during every major service. 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.

How important is this service?

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.

Grzegorz was exactly what i was looking for. My sons Porsche 914 was driven every day up to five years ago then had some fuel injector issues and has sat idle for five years not able to start. I had trouble finding a 914 mechanic (rare) who would get it going let alone come to the house! Grzegorz went through the basic engine and got it running in an hour. I have him coming back for a full tune up. If you are looking fro a very trustworthy mechanic , Grzegorz is your man

5 stars for Chris! He performed a pre-purchase inspection for me, and was super informative. After reviewing the report, I both called and texted him multiple times for additional questions. Each time he was extremely friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable. I hope to hire Chris again in the future.
