Punctual, friendly, replaced alternator without a problem. Thanks Joseph!
Overall: 5- stars! Seems to have completed my repair quickly and efficiently. Joseph was very exceptional at the service he provided and I would happily recommend him to other YourMechanic users and friends and family. Full Review: Joseph asked me if it was okay that he showed up to my appointment an hour early, which I was happy to allow him. Once he got there, the repair was completed under the time that was estimated for this repair to be done. He obviously was very patient in explaining the other issues he saw with my vehicle, which is nice when you aren't very mechanically knowledgeable. He also recommended some other things to put into my car to help some of the other issues my car has. Seemed like an honest and respectful guy who had the customer's interests first. I would definitely recommend Joseph to other people.

Vladimir arrived ahead of time, was very nice and helpful. He replaced the alternator of my 2007 4Runner right in my driveway, which was not a straightforward task being that he had to remove the underneath skidplate. He checked & verified that everything worked the way it did before it broke it down. I'm not familiar with the market rate, but the cost seemed very reasonable ($300). I would definitely use YourMechanic again, and highly recommend Vladimir.

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.
