Once again John was awesome. He made sure that my alternator was fixed on the same day by creating an appointment for me after he did the inspection. He went to two different automotive stores before he found the alternator. He even worked through the rain. Another great job by John.

Joseph did a great job - I had ordered an alternator to be replaced, but after Joseph checked out the vehicle, he identified that the starter was actually the problem. We are going to have him get us a quote on the starter and as soon as we can scedule a follow up appointment, we'll have Joseph replace the starter. Very efficient and kept me informed all along the way. Definitely will contact Joseph again the next time we have vehicle issues!

William replaced the alternator in our Lexus RX 350. While he said his expertise was not in Lexus, but Nissan, he knew what he was doing and replaced the alternator properly. Probably saved me over $200. He was polite, prompt and knowledgeable.

Noe diagnosed the problem of our car not starting as being caused by a defective alternator. He installed a new alternator, and the car seems to be running okay now (although it's still idling rough). Hopefully this alternator will last longer than the previous one (which was installed by a different mechanic) lasted.

I was nervous about using a service like this, but Alex was awesome! He called when he was close and let me know he was making a stop for 10-15 minutes (later found out it was to grab something to eat/drink). Even so, he still arrived on-time, actually just before the scheduled start time. Did a great job understanding the issue and explaining what the symptoms I was seeing was. Replaced my alternator and drive belt quickly and spent time explaining what he saw on the inspection - which thankfully wasn't much, just some new brake pads which I knew was coming pretty soon. As for the service, quick and easy scheduling and saved a ton over the typical shop. Alex was great and will be using him again for our auto needs. Thanks Alex!

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.
