Zach was awesome. He was punctual and very knowledgeable with cars. He did an amazing job and was efficient. Getting the additional inspection is so helpful because it pointed out any other potential issues. I never once felt Zach was about selling add-ons. He was genuinely interested in doing what needed to be done. I will definitely be requesting him in the future.

I had been having issue with my car for almost 2 months. The car was not starting. I went to local "Toughy" dealer and he said its a battery problem and replaced which costed huge amount. With in a week i got the problem again and AAA road side assistant person came and started the car. He said it could be starter issue. Then when i went to dealer, he said its not starter issue but issue with alternator. That moment i decided the dealer is cheating me. I checked in online and found this site. I mentioned it could be one of Starter or Alternator issue. Joshua confirmed it is Starter issue only and he replaced. Its been ore than 2 months till date and no further issues. Going forward i am going to use this service for all my car needs

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.
