Jeep Commander - Alternator - Seattle, Washington
Theordore is a great mechanic. I have a 2007 Commander that is beginning to have issues after 120,000 miles. I live in a big city and dont have a trustworthy mechanic. After googling issues, I thought I only needed a serpentine belt, so I made the appointment for that and it turned out to be a whole new alternator. Every time he found an issue, he would explain what was going on and also show me, or try to get me to listen to the issue, in order to assure me he was being honest. On the flip side, there were parts I thought might be bad, and he would let me know they were fine. He was honest about how much life I could get out of parts before needing to replace them, instead of attempting to upsell or get me to replace things. When it was time to talk money on parts, he showed me line by line the part and how much that costs, and then how much everything would be upfront. I am on a major budget and I felt like he was trustworthy and was only trying to get me to do what I needed to do. He came out and had the alternator changed, along with an oil change in less than a couple of hours. Easy-breezy.

Honda Civic - Alternator Repair - Seattle, Washington
Charles was right on time, and very personable. He showed me all of the parts and fluids that he would be replacing, told me what he would be doing, etc. When I checked on him about midway through, he was rotating the tires, and told me which ones he was putting on the front, and why. He was quick and efficient, even finished sooner than expected, When he was done, he cleaned everything up, probably cleaner than it was when he arrived. I will definitely be requesting him in the future for our auto maintenance and repairs. The best experience I have had with a mechanic in years!
Honda CR-V - Alternator - Seattle, Washington
Charles called to ask if he could arrive earlier than appointment due to finishing last job. GREAT, he arrived at new time, verified paperwork, checked car, asked if I had any questions and started work. I checked with him about every 20 minutes, very friendly, gave status reports and completed the job in the time predicted. He did not see any oil leaks, checked all fluids, test ran engine alternator repair and serpentine belt replacement. ALL A-OK. Thanks,

Casey Dmitriev was superior in every way. His work showed that he is highly talented as a mechanic and the decency of his interaction was outstanding. Casey was so helpful. It was a rare experience of trust in an automobile repair process from the price to the advice. I would recommend Casey and this company to anyone needing this kind of service.
Ford Focus - Alternator - Seattle, Washington
DEAR CASEY . I had figured out what the problem was and you agreed. It was the alternator. HOWEVER CASEY....I need you to know that the comment you made about 'something like a fan BELT or something'...well, it turns out our car has been making this 'BELT' sound since the install of the alternator. I bet you know what it is, right? Please Call either me, Cindy Rose or my husband, John Rose at 206-527-6598 Thank you!

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.
