Excellent service from Mechanic Mike. Came earlier since he was done with his previous job, and was done before we knew it. Would recommend him to anyone!
Very competent and professional. Michael seems very honest and would definitely re-connect with him on future mechanical needs.

Jeffery was running late due to bad weather but kept me updated on his progress and i could watch his progress getting to my home on the web site. i requested that he let me know when he was close to my house due to my dogs and he did so. Very pleased with his effort and knowledge of vehicles. i will use him again as necessary and would recommend him to friends.

Andrew was great. I watched while he replaced the alternator and drive belt on my minivan. I have some DIY experience with various repairs on my vehicles and I'm picky when it comes to the details. I believe his work was high quality and he finished quickly. His inspection also discovered the source of a small oil leak which had eluded me in the past. Thanks 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.
