Great experience. Went above and beyond to ensure that the problem was fixed and that I was happy with the result. Even checked in a few days later to make sure it was still functioning correctly.

Robert

Robert was fantastic. He was very thorough during our appointment; he discussed, and even showed me, the wear-and-tear on parts he replaced and offered helpful observations about the condition of my vehicle; he really made me feel like my car was in good hands. He did not push me in to additional repairs, as often happens when you visit a mechanic. This was my first experience with YourMechanic and Robert answered all the questions which I had about YourMechanic and how it works. He was extremely friendly and I will absolutely request him on any future repairs and maintenance. I really liked the convenience and affordability of YourMechanic and most of all I highly recommend Robert!

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.
