Daniel came here on time, and did the needed service professionally. Car now runs great and I'm very happy with the service I got. He informed me of an additional issue in my car that need fixed, and if I decide on doing it, I'd like him to do it for me. Highly recommended!

Rigoberto knows his stuff. He has years of experience servicing all sorts of makes and models of vehicles. No way I could have done the job myself since the nut holding the battery wire on the alternator had fused when the alternator failed. He had just the right tools to break that sucker free and saved me the cussing and time. Very knowledgeable and personable. I hate to highly recommend him because he is already in high demand and tough to get on the calendar.. But if you need trustworthy service, see if you can get him on your schedule.

I had a bad alternator and torn belt on my 98 volvo s70. Andy was on time, friendly, and worked hard to get the issue resolved. I showed him the car and he got to assessing the problem immediately. I left him to it and he fixed my car right in my apartment parking lot, he even worked to finish the repair in the dark. I was skeptical as first when signing up for yourmechanic.com but after dealing with Andy i would recommend his/their service to any of my friends or family. It was too easy and you save a lot of money. Just be careful not to schedule repairs in the pouring rain and you should be good. Fast, friendly, professional, & worth every penny. Thanks !

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.
