Honorio was running a little late from his previous job but it was no fault of his own. Once he arrived he was professional and efficient. He potentially saved me money by pointing out some issues with my car and was always available to take my phone calls and answer my questions.

Casey saved me quite a bit of money on parts and labor! My 2002 VW Jetta had the simplest part missing/broken and Casey was able to construct a new one on the spot. Car is driving great, would request work from Casey again!

This was my first time using YourMechanic -Allen was early to my appointment - which was great, and I appreciated him calling ahead. Allen was patient and thorough - answering all my questions (I had several lol) quickly identifying a root cause, and providing the estimate. He also did a great inspection on additional issues with my car (not related to my original inquiry) which helped to eliminate any surprises. I decided to book an appointment afterwards for my coolant leak repair - which ended up being a worn out heater core hose.

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.
