Honesty, efficiency, and professionalism -- if these are the main traits you want from a mechanic Augie is the mechanic you're looking for. When my alternator gave out Augie arrived, accessed the situation, and agreed that it was more than likely the alternator, which Augie had installed within an hour, and the price quoted was what I paid – certainly, I will request Augie on yourmechanic.com in the future.
He showed up early, worked quickly, and did a fantastic job. I'm very happy and would not hesitate to use him again in the future. I am grateful for his good work.

Super personable guy, understanding of the issues with the car (as it’s been intermittent) didn’t feel pressured to complete the booking, checked all the signs of what was going on with the alternator and allowed me to make the decision to complete the replacement myself without feeling on the spot. Not only that, the job was completed quicker than I expected, he was prompt and on time - and my dog liked him, bonus! :) - thank you! I recommend Pedro to anyone looking for quality work and professionalism.

Chris asked if he could start early, which worked out great for me. All work was done in a timely manner and the work he did fixed my car (replaced alternator). Overall good experience.

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.

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.
