Excellent work. Got an alternator replacement. He said he would have to unplug my AC compressor (I think) and that would cause my AC not to work after the appointment but he fixed it without doing that. Yourmechanic should have told me that little detail when I scheduled the appointment since it does cost extra money and require another appointment....but he made it not an issue at all. He also showed up early so that was a plus.

5-Star Rating! Anthony is a great mechanic! He kept me up-to-date with everything along the way. He called to confirm, called when he was heading to my vehicle, and called once the job was complete. I definitely will recommend Anthony to anyone else looking for a reliable, trustworthy mechanic! I will also be requesting his services for any future repairs I need done to my Tahoe.

Michael was great. First experience with a mobile mechanic and now I wonder why. Efficient, competent, explained everything. Evern put up with me looking over his shoulder for a bit. On time and finished early, I booked him immediately on another issue after I saw how great he was.

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.
