Tim was excellent. He came earlier the appt to accommodate both mine and his schedule. Made sure car was running and fixed any diagnostic errors found after his repair was done. I will definitely be using this service again
Tim re-arranged his scheduled day off to put in new alternator that a new battery 2 days earlier did not solve problem. Very sincere and much appreciated to correct this as soon as possible.

Carlos was on time and friendly. He inspected the vehicle and then began his work. He's very thorough, explained to me what he did and the Your Mechanic warranty. He also discussed a few things with me that I should look out for. He did an excellent job and if I need any additional work done on my vehicles, if possible, I'd like to book Carlos directly. He's very professional and timely (which I appreciated).

Good mechanic. Did some troubleshooting on the car before his final diagnosis. I called in for a alternator and he made sure it wasn't actually the battery etc before swapping the more expensive alternator out. On time. I would highly recommend Scott. I usually do my own work but did not have time to deal with this issue. I can say he does great work.

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.
