Alternator repairs can be expensive. That's no secret. But why are they so expensive? For what reasons are some alternators up to four times more expensive than others, even if the specifications of the alternators seem to be almost identical on first sight?
The differences between an original part and a cheap aftermarket replacement alternator can be very big. These differences can result in a considerably different performance and drastically reduced reliability, as well as increased wear of the charging system components.
The following deals with explaining these differences by comparing alternator repair, rebuild and replacement.
Alternator Replacement Or Repair?
An alternator replacement or repair should be inspected before replacing any electrical component under the hood.
Our customers have the choice to repair an alternator, rebuild an alternator or replace the alternator entirely.
Your alternator is responsible for charging your battery while you drive.
If your vehicle has trouble starting how can you tell if it's the alternator or you need a battery?
Sometimes, when your vehicle fails to start or has trouble starting it could be several issues at play including your alternator, battery, starter or something else.
There are bad alternator symptoms to look out for which will narrow down the diagnosis.
If it is an alternator repair you require, or you want to save some money and have an alternator rebuild, we can help get you going with affordable alternator repair and surrounding areas.
When Should I Replace My Alternator?
Alternator repair is a standard replacement part with your car's charging system.
Your car’s alternator provides power to the battery as your vehicle is running. Without a properly functioning alternator, the battery will lose its charge very quickly and your engine systems will fail.
Replacing your alternator is a less frequent replacement part. Alternators generally last 7 years or more and over 100,000 km.
The life of your alternator depends on the quality of the part, conditions in which the car is driven and how many electronics are being used inside the car.
Is An Alternator Rebuild a Better Option?
An alternator rebuild is usually the cheaper option opposed to a complete replacement.
As long as the alternator housing is in tact, whether you need an alternator rebuild or alternator replacement, there are a few warning signs that suggest your alternator needs repair.
Common signs of a faulty alternator include:
Headlights start pulsating from dim to bright.
A burning smell coming from the alternator
Alternator warning light / dashboard lights come on.
Car radio / electrical components work intermittently
A squealing noise in your car’s engine
To get your car back on the road have our local mechanic check your charging system for a complete diagnosis.
