Paul arrived early and went straight to work assuring the diagnosis was correct, installed the new alternator in record time, and stayed afterwards for some time to assure all was well. Thanks much for a great vehicle repair experience.

As Patrick said in his profile, " I have the experience to get the job done quickly and accurately." That's exactly what he did today for my Toyota. This is my first time of using yourmechanic, folks, I’m impressed and I will definitely use it again. This is because Patrick was easy and knowledgeable to work with. I know little about cars and sometimes I ask a lot of question. Asking Patrick a question wasn't an issue compared to some mechanics that would reply to your question in a condescending manner. More so, he was professional and honest. He replaced my alternator less than an hour and checked other parts of my car to make sure all was good. He appeared friendly and humble. That's important if you're letting someone you know nothing about to work on your car. I will use it again and recommend him to others. By the way, price was good too. Thanks

Ben is the most experienced mechanic I've ever known. Friendly, polite, precise, concise, and extremely fair. He did an alternator replacement in my Porsche Cayenne (something difficult to do); didn't break anything and didn't scratch the car in the process. He'll go the extra mile (pun totally intended) to make sure the car runs like it should. Thank you, Ben!

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.
