Emanuel showed up five minutes before the scheduled time (in fact he called and offered to come an hour earlier than scheduled), quickly diagnosed the problem as a (suspected) bad alternator in less than five minutes, and got to work. Almost exactly an hour later, he knocked on my door and said "You're done!". Car works great, and I'm blown away by his punctuality, courtesy, and professionalism. Will definitely be using YourMechanic and Emanuel G. again!

original apt was for 10-2 at 3:15, but Quentin was unable to get the alternator. He did text me in a timely fashion informing me the part would be available in the morning on 10-3. He said he would get to my house around 10:30, earlier if possible. He texted me the next morning and did arrive 30 minutes early. The alternator was replaced very quickly and he then charged my battery. There were no surprise fees. He did suggest I replace my battery soon, but there was no pressure from him to let him do it. When driving to work the "check engine " light came on. I texted Quentin and he replied in a timely manner. He suggested it could be the computer needs resetting. He also suggested I go to a certain auto parts house and get a diagnostics run at no charge. I am extremely pleased with Quentin and My Mechanic.

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.
