Casey was running late but he was quick to call and keep me updated. He's a friendly guy who works under some difficult circumstances. No shop equipment, cold, rain and darkness. Still, he had the tools he needed and got the job done. Having him have to come back because the serpintine belt is squealing badly. Probably needs to be adjusted.

Can't say how happy of a customer I am after my appointment with Jacob. He's professional, easy-going, and gets right to the job. Most importantly, he's an honest hard working guy that just wants to help you. We had an appointment for a new alternator. We ended up deciding to change the battery as well but our original order didn't include that so he didn't have an extra battery in his truck. Jacob volunteered to drive with us to our local auto parts shop to help change the battery. Didn't charge us for any extra - just wanted to make sure our car was good to go. Goes over and beyond. Would highly recommend to anyone!

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.
