Tom was great - arrived right on time, put the problematic systems of my car to the test, and didn't performed the services that were not necessary, as he'd found. I appreciate his knowledge and honesty. I'm happy to recommend him, will book again!

Ford F-150 - Alternator Repair - Austin, Texas
showed up and did what he was asked to do. Gave good advice on other issues that I have with my vehicle
Chrysler 300 - Alternator - Austin, Texas
This was my first experience using a mobile mechanic and didn't have high expectations. Charles was by far one of the more experienced, knowledgeable and efficient mechanics I've ever come across. Not only did he have me up an running quickly, he provided so much information that I feel empowered in maintaining my vehicles maintenance. He had impressed me so much I immediately booked him again for more work. Highly recommend his services.

I'm pretty much illiterate when it comes to cars. Brett was informative, friendly, and quicker than I expected. He helped me surprise my girlfriend by getting her Camaro back on the road. Thank you, Brett!

Marty is like your cool uncle that you can't wait to come and visit because he won't act like one of the "adults" and he'll teach you how to play guitar, how to fix cars, how to ride a motorcycle, he'll take you to get your first tattoo, buy you your first beer, etc.

Very pleasant experience! Marcel showed up on time and changed my alternator in no time. He mentioned that my serpentine belt would probably need to be changed soon, but did not try to pressure me into having it done immediately. I will definitely be using 'Your Mechanic' again!

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.
