Lucas is an extremely competent mechanic that I would recommend to anyone, except maybe my mother-in-law (sarcastic joke) Lucas has been so professional and points extra things out to me that I would not know. He has done two repairs for me and I have the next time I need to have one done, I will be personally requesting him. If Lucas goes to another company, "Your Mechanic" has lost my business. I recommend this personal service, and I will tell everyone to request Lucas. I had a quote for a service on my truck, and Lucas punched in the info. with "Your Mechanic" and the rated he quoted me beat the other party by $1,000. The service is so convenient and personable and so is Lucas. GIVE HIM A RAISE, I think he is worth it.

Really nice guy, very knowledgeable. Very quickly replaced my alternator and went the extra step to take a look at power steering reservoir that I thought may be leaking. Definitely would recommend Pardeep

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.
