Alfredo was the right man for the job. He had the right tools and knowledge needed for the alternator job. One thing I will tell you he has patience and will do the job right! Not many people take care and look out for their customers and he did all that and more. I recommend him to everyone who is using yourmechanic.com and comes across his profile. You will not regret because he's 5 star and tons of reviews do not lie. I forgot to mention one of the most important thing he is very well educated man!
Didn't expect any less! He showed up right on time and did his job and now I feel so much more safe driving to work an hour and half every day and then another hour and half home. Thank you so much!

Jerel showed up on time (actually a little before) and performed the work on our car. It was a great experience to not have to take it to the shop and wait. I was waiting in the comfort of my home and getting other chores done while the car was being fixed. I liked having the fixed cost quote as well. Jerel was very thorough and did a great job and the car is running great. I would definitely use him and YourMechanic again.

Steven arrived on time, got the work completed in time, and further diagnosed the problem. It turned out I had misdiagnosed the problem, and he was able to steer me in the direction of a correct solution. I enthusiastically recommend him.

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.
