I have always been my daughter's mechanic, but she now lives away from home and her car needed repair. The YourMechanic service was just what we needed to get her car back on the road. Dan was very professional and effective, showing up on time with the right part and got the job done without her having to be towed and wait in a repair shop, and the price was very competitive. A real bonus was the overall car condition report provided by email. I couldn't be more pleased and would recommend Dan and YourMechanic to others.

Hi everyone, Theodore is my mechanic he was very Professional, kind and always on top of his job with a lot of patients by answering my questions and showing me what he's going to do. Theodore went beyond the job and did checks on other items such as oil level, tire pressure(he added air too), he added a whole bottle of windshield fluid at no extra charge and etc... he took care of my car like it was his own. Feels good waiting at my home then going to shop and wait there for hours. I appreciate Theodore and yourmechanic very great experience, thank you Theodore

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.
