Though the repair could not have been made on the day of the first appointment, Alex got my car back and running until our rescheduled appointment. He replaced my master brake cylinder which was leaking before. Alex was quick and professional and was knowledgeable about any questions that i asked him. I highly recommend considering him for your own car repair needs

Richard did an excellent job on replacing my motor mounts. My neighbors were so impressed they starting coming over and asking for the phone number. Richard was honest about all aspects of what he was doing, showed me the parts he took out and showed me the defects. I felt super confident he wasn't trying to rook me! MyMechanic is what the future of auto repair needs to be! THANK YOU RICHARD, YOU ROCK!! See you soon!

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.
