I am a repeat customer who is incredibly satisfied with Dave's competence and services. In the last job, he was able to immediately and correctly attribute the grinding noise while accelerating to differential's malfunction. Next, while differential replacement service was not even on YourMechanic menu he worked with the company to get it added and approved. Then he helped me save a lot on this expensive part by finding a matching aftermarket item on eBay. Very happy with the outcome!

I booked Shaun for oil change but also wanted him to diagnose my persistent light warning. Shaun was very courteous and did a thorough inspection of my car. He not only figured out the light warning ( turns out was due to 2 different types of bulbs used) but also created a thorough inspection report which was very useful. He is prompt and very knowledgable. I will use him again and recommend him for all other services.

All about Alternator Repair

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.
