First time user of YourMechanic, I'm shockingly pleased! Russ was super informative about everything, he even drew out diagrams so I could understand bigger issues happening in my car. There was a very minor issue where the website told him the wrong parts for my car and he had to go to the auto parts store mid-repair, but it was not a big deal for me and didn't seem like one to him. He even stayed longer than the appointment was supposed to last to explain everything going on, and gave me a bigger discount than what I was originally quoted. I'm very happy with the service and would book him again.

Armando

Although they tell you to give the mechanics 1 hour leeway to show up, Armando was at my house early. He serviced my car perfectly and took the time to explain to me exactly what he was doing and why. He also completed a full inspection on the rest of my car to let me know what I should focus on fixing next. Definitely looking to schedule with him again. Great experience!

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.
