Enrique
16 years of experience
Enrique is very professional, courteous, and thorough. He was fully prepared and equipped for the job, and was very well organized. He performed the work in a timely manner. A more serious, deeper problem within the engine remained after he was done, and will require significantly heavier maintenance which is beyond the scope of this company and service. Nevertheless, I highly recommend Enrique, and will use him and YourMechanic again in the future, if I have other maintenance needs on this car or my other car. He is a good man.

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.
