Jeff my mechanic was fantastic and the car is running very well now. The yourmechanic.com service was a bit suspect. Not sure they have all the website/customer service kinks worked out yet but, Jeff overcame the obstacles quickly and with a great attitude. The website service did not understand what parts I needed (and its simple really, as it was just motor mounts). I suspected this and called to confirm and was told they would make sure the mechanic would have what he needed. He did not, it delayed the repair time and changed the price.

Theo was ontime and extremely courteous. He diagnosed my vintage Mercedes' problem and returned a week later. The replacement part they sent him was incorrect, so he reassembled my dashboard and waited for the correct replacement. When it arrived, he not only installed it, but followed me to a service station and then test drove the vehicle to check for other problems. I will ABSOLUTELY use Your Mechanic.com in the future to avail myself of a great mobile service. Thank you.

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.
