Choeuns is a true professional. He does an amazing job. If only the customer service side of this company can get to his level of excellence that would be awesome!
Choeun was an awesome mechanic. I would use him again. Had my car running in a couple of hours. Job well done. I wish I could give the website yourmechanic the same but they get a big fat 0.

Travis got to my apartment within a reasonable amount of time and got my alternator done quickly. He even let me know that a part I had asked to be serviced said looked great and ended up taking it off my total. Would recommend him!

Joe was great! He offered options before proceeding with the recommendations and finished the job in a third of the time that other garages had quoted. Happy to hear they operate in other states as well, like my home state of Texas! Siskel and Ebert would’ve given ! Thanks Joe, well done!

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.
