This was my first time using the service and Junard did not disappoint! He was very friendly and took the time to explain to me everything that he was fixing on my car. He called me when he picked up the parts to make sure it was exactly what I had ordered. I was definitely impressed with Your Mechanic, and more importantly, with Junard!

Terrance was absolutely amazing and fixed my car in a timely manner with pretty short notice. My alternator died at 9pm at night and I was able to schedule an appointment the next day at 11am to get it replaced without having to have my car towed anywhere. Terrance was right on time and worked quickly and effectively. Not to mention that the charges were significantly less than any auto repair shop that I would have found. Overall great work from an amazing guy and company! Will definitely be using this service 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.
