Prompt and thorough service, and Patrick answered questions about my car unrelated to the service provided.
Patrick was a pleasure to have as my new mechanic. He kept me posted on his arrival time and how long he was going to be under the hood replacing my alternator. Once he removed the alternator it turned out to be a little different so he left for about a half hour to get the correct one. Still finished in expected time which was a life saver because we were headed out of town 2 hours later. I had booked this appointment Christmas day and the whole job was finished by 2 o'clock the 26th! Patrick also pointed out a few leaks and hoses that need attention but didn't make it sound like we would be unsafe if we didn't do it immediately like some places do. I asked him if I could call him directly in the future and he said no I needed to go through the company and request him to be my guy. I will certainly be asking for him in the future. I also believe that I saved at least 50% by not going to my regular garage. Here it is three days later and I've told six of my friends about this Christmas miracle!

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.
