Jeff was great as always!
I have a Lexus RX 350 in which I experienced issues with the car shutting off several times. Jeff came to my rescue by determining the cause of issue and repaired my vehicle by replacing the alternator. He arrived on time and completing the job within a reasonable time. In addition, Jeff educated my husband and I to ensure that we both thoroughly understood the signs of an alternator going bad. Nevertheless, we would like to extend our appreciation to his wife who assists him. My vehicle is running better than ever thanks to them both. I would most definitely recommend others due to such outanding service and professionalism in which we encountered. Thank you!

David was very professional, respectful, and courteous. He replaced my alternator and let me know and showed me that my cabin filters were filthy and needed to be changed ASAP. Now I have much better air flow when using AC. Had no idea they needed to be changed. Thank you David for a job well done. I will definitely be calling on your mechanic if or when the need arises.

William immediately made me feel comfortable by his demeanor but also his professional courtesy. William not only enjoys his trade but excels at a level that I wa assured my vehicle was in good hands. I would repeat business through My Mechanic solely for the purposes of obtaining Williams skills. Thank you very much William!

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.
