Carlos arrived at my house right on time and performed an excellent job replacing the alternator on my 1994 Chevrolet Blazer. He is a very proficient and knowledgeable mechanic as well as an obviously courteous and cogent professional. He also provided to me excellent advice regarding the continued upkeep on my ageing vehicle. I would highly recommend Your Mechanic as an exceptional choice for any vehicular repairs. It is an honest and very reasonable alternative for most automotive repairs.

All about Alternator Replacement

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.
