fine did a good job
Chris is just great! Seems to me he likes the challenge no shortcuts. So focus on the issue at hand and at the same time keeping a positive attitude with the customer even when asking the dumbest questions. He just goes above and beyond. 2nd car Chris works on for us and couldn't be happier.

Awesome. On time and quickly got down to business. Got me up and running. Would recommend again.
Charles replaced my alternator in a very timely manner. He arrived on time and was friendly and professional. The cost was an outstanding deal that I'm sure I would not have received anywhere else. I will definitely be recommending Charles and YourMechanic to anyone else that needs car service.

Theodore was very efficient and finished the job of replacing my alternator with lots of time to spare. After he finished the job, he inspected the car and engine to see if there were other items that potentially needed attention. He was very honest and not like other shops that try to get you to do extra repairs you don't need. He also arrived EARLY to our appointment. Highly recommend Theodore if you're looking for a mechanic who dives right in to do the job right!

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.
