Hani got to my house on time and got the work done in less time than expected. He answered all of my questions about the parts he replaced and was straight forward about what services I will need in the future and how soon I would actually need them. After the replacement was installed he hung around for 15 minutes with the engine running to make sure everything was working properly. Definitely a much better vibe than I get going to a "normal" mechanic in a shop and the price was much better than the dealership cost. Highly recommend.
Extremely polite, professional and knowledgeable! I will definitely use him again!

Great mechanic, takes time to get to know a bit about clients, would recommend to everyone.
John was everything that you would want from a professional. His knowledge was second to none and he made sure that we were back up and running in no time. John has set the bar and we will continue to use yourmechanic for our auto repair needs in the future.

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.
