Jay was prompt and professional. He completed the service quickly and left everything very clean. Very helpful with tips and suggestions. Unfortunately he left the headlights on after checking their function. This ran the battery down, and now I have to buy a new one.

I was very skeptical about using this site, would they send someone knowledgeable, reputable, etc. etc... I was very pleased to see that not only did Carlos arrive on time, he was 20 minutes early!! He introduced himself and we discussed the problem my car was having. Carlos came prepared with part in hand and all necessary tools to complete the job. He did his 50 point inspection and took pictures, all the while explaining what and why he was doing things. Carlos had the installation of the alternator done in record time. He made suggestions on future services I would be needing to get done, and wrote it all up in his detailed report. I would Highly recommend Your Mechanic and will be using the service and requesting Carlos again!!

Great service. He arrived early and finished early. He explained that many of the inspections I received from Tires Plus was overpriced. I highly recommend him and I will use his services again.

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.
