Your Mechanic is brilliant! This is my first time using the service and I absolutely love it. Great service, convenient, and reasonable rates. I will definitely recommend to all of my friends and family. Honorio came out to my workplace and worked on my car. He arrived timely and was very efficient and knowledgeable. He tightened some parts that were loose, which made my service engine light turn off! :) He took pictures and gave me a detailed breakdown of repairs my car would need in the near future. Honorio was very confident, experienced, and genuine. I give him 5+ stars! Thanks Honorio!

I can't ask for anything more for the professional job that Jay had done on my car, replacing the front struts on my BMW. Very friendly from the start and without hesitation he answered all questions I have about the work to be done which boosted my confidence and resulted in an excellent job. Well done and thank you so much, Jay! Very glad I found YourMechanic to save me a fortune that dealer shop was charging me for the same work.

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.
