Tom was on time for the appointment and very friendly. He arrived with everything that he needed with the exception of a couple parts that were later discovered to be needed. Even then, instead of rescheduling the appointment, he was able to get the parts a couple hours later and returned to finish the job. I am very pleased with Toms work and expertise in Volkswagen models. He made sure that my expectations were satisfied and that I was happy with the overall work. Tom is a very honest guy and will work with you to make you happy. He has turned my previous views about YourMechanic around and I will be using Tom from now on to work on my car. Thank you again!!

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.
