Scott was on time he knew what he was doing and how to do it. He worked hard even though it was extremely hot. HOWEVER my truck now makes a extremely loud noise upon starting. Have no idea what or why or if I am doing damage to this vehicle by using it!

Chris has serviced both of our vehicles multiple times, and just before a scheduled service, that particular vehicle had broken down with an unrelated issue. Chris graciously changed his plans on the fly and met us at the location where the vehicle was, repaired it, and got us back on the road quickly. He also pointed out a couple of additional things to keep an eye on, and let us know the original service we'd scheduled (on advice of a different mechanic), wasn't actually needed. I will only use Chris going forward if possible; I've been very pleased with his level of customer service on every visit.

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.
