He contacted me to come earlier than the appointed time, which was great because I had errands to do. He fixed the original problem, which was the alternator. He worked fast. Upon completion, he found a secondary problem. He gave me the option to add it on or not. He also cleaned up after himself, wiping down his work area and the driver's seat. Made sure I started the car so I could see it was in working condition. Joseph was such a professional and made me feel at ease. The whole mobile mechanic process was easy and hassle-free. My sister wanted to know if it she should try it, and I told her yes!! Even my co-workers were interested in my experience, and I gave them a great review, and Joseph's card. I had a good experience and will use them again in the future. Thanks Joseph!
Pro: Joseph arrives on time, very friendly and give me free anti-freeze. Cons: He misdiagnosed the problem that caused me a lot of money. At first, he diagnosed the battery is dead, but then he said the problem is the alternator and he recommended to replace it with the new one. Since he knew what he's doing, I decided to book him again to replace the alternator. However, the real problem is not the alternator. The real problem is the Brake Pedal Accelerator Stop fell off and it caused the brake light always turns on. This dries up the battery quickly. The part for the Brake Pedal Accelerator Stop is cheap (around $3-$6) but I ended up paying $300 with Joseph because I trusted his judgement that the root cause was the alternator ! Worse, he didn't give me the "old" alternator. I give him 3 stars since he's a nice person. I understand people can make mistake. But his misjudgment caused me $300 and he didn't carefully look around to find the root cause. He's too quick making judgment, which is not good.

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.
