Toyota 4Runner - Alternator - Tampa, Florida
In a nutshell, joe was fantastic even though a bolt on my alternator gave him hell. He ended returning to my home three times after having to purchase a special kit to remove this crazy bolt that was stripped and did not want to come off. He returned for the third time this morning right at 7:00 am. Hearing my car start around 8:20 am was music to my ears. There’s a warranty on the part. He provided a quick overview of my cars condition with the tires, brakes, fluids. All good. I now say I have a mechanic on call if I ever need one. Thanks Joe!!

Ira was awesome! I highly recomend his services. He was friendly, trustworthy, and got the job done despite having to wait in his car for over an hour for the rain to pass. He finished the job in the dark and it although it was just an alternator replacement it looked like a tough job even in the daylight. Best mechanic I've dealt with since I've been repairing my car.
Mitsubishi Eclipse - Alternator - Tampa, Florida
Wonderful mechanic, very timely and knew exactly what he was doing. Got my car up and running in about an hour. Thanks so much! Definitely will be using him for future services on the car.

Very pleasant young man also on time I was really impressed with his work and the time that it took him to do it I found me on mechanic Thank You Jose for your time and your patience
Kia Sedona - Alternator - Tampa, Florida
A dealer was trying to take me for a ride to change the alternator for $540 after taxes ($220 for parts and 3.5 to4.5 hrs). Having done this several times over the years and working in a garage 30 yrs ago, I know it should only take 1.5 hrs and the part would be $120 to $160. I gave this a shot hoping for the best. The price was right what I would expect as well as the estimated time included in the price. After booking at 4:15 PM an emergency came up and I needed to leave early at 5. I sent a message asking (kind of pleading) if Jose might show up or finish early. He was smart and didn't proomise anything as he didn't know what he was getting into fully yet but shaid he would do his best. He did. I am rarely impressed by others and more often disappointed with "service calls". However, Jose DID impress. He showed up 45 minutes early and completed the work in record time. Thanks again! Needless to say he's already being recommended to my co-workers and he will be called on again by myself.

Did the job on time, did the work quickly when he got here. Was very knowledgeable about what he was doing and it was nice talking to another car guy. Maintained contact as to where he was and when he would be at my home. And on top of that he was a very cordial person. Can't beat that.

Chris was great. After booking my appointment he called to not only confirm the date/time but asked me about the car issues to ensure I requested the correct services. He was on time, friendly, professional, and worked quickly. He explained what he was fixing and recommended some future maintenance to extend the car life. He even put in the quotes so I could budget the cost of my repairs. Definitely recommend, especially if you have a Honda!

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.
