I loved him, he knew what he was doing, and made sure everything was done correctly, and even put the same exact part in, instead of a different part very helpful, left me with some great tips, and over all an awesome person (he even managed to come early)! I highly recommend him, as well as this conpany

I was definitely a little hesitant/skeptical about a mobile mechanic to get work done on my car, but that hesitation has definitely gone away. Duane was punctual (actually showed up early), professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. I had initially booked two areas that needed work done, but was able to easily add another job based on symptoms I had described and Duane was able to confirm. He was able to pick up additional parts nearby and get the job done in a timely manner. I will definitely be using Duane in the future for any mechanic needs and would recommend him to others!

Jason was excellent and very informative. He arrived on time had a discussion on the issue of the vehicle and he said no problem and took over from there. He was done in no time and even went out of his way to alert to me of future maintenance items I should keep an eye on that he noticed while working. I will definitely request him again for future work.

Alika went way above and beyond to make sure my car got back on the road. This was my first time using a mobile mechanic; Alika was timely and knowledgeable, and I was charged what I was quoted. I'll never go to the dealership again!

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.
