This was my first experience with a mobile mechanic, but it definitely wont be may last. Everything about the experience was exellent.
After having my car sit in my garage for a month with a dead alternator, I found yourmechanic.com, and more specifically, Nathan Thorne. YourMechanic.com's website was super easy to use, they already had the repair I needed in their system, gave me an exact quote, and let me pick when the repair was going to happen. Now the best part. When the mechanic came out, he determined that the repair was going to take significantly longer than they had quoted...AND DIDN'T UPCHARGE ME. He just did the repair and said since the company's quote on the time for the repair was wrong, he would just deal with them. Couldn't have asked for better service and will definitely recommend and use Nathan Thorne again.

Came home to my car up and running, yeay!!!!
Chris did an outstanding job! He explained everything and is very proficient at what he does. His knowledge showed me that he was able to repair anything on my vehicle. He was that best mechanic I have ever used in over 30 years. I will be using him when I need repairs and recommend him highly to everyone I know.

YourMechanic is the best auto sevice we have used! The Administrative staff answered all of my questions with a nice mix of professionalism, and kindness. I needed my truck fixed asap as I work an on-call position in the operating room. Your company had my truck fixed within 24 hr's of my quote request! Not only did this save me from an expensive car rental. But it also saved me a towing fee, and a over-priced repair. Your quote was at least 25% lower than any other repair price that I could find. Your mechanic, Erick, was extremely was great. Very nice, knowledgeable, and had a great sense of humor. He left me with the impression that he really loves his work and the company he works for. Makes me want to keep him as my personal mechanic for any future work, although I'm sure you have a lot of good employees, as a manager myself, he has all the qualities of a star employee! I will definitely be using your service for future repairs. From the Administration to my door, you are the best I've found! Thank you so much for your fast, friendly service.

Alternator Repair Service

How does an alternator help your car run?

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.

Alternator

Before repairing the alternator:

The mechanic should check the entire charging system before installing a new alternator, including checking battery cables for corrosion and the condition of the battery.

Steps when replacing an alternator:

  • Inspect entire charging system (battery, cables, alternator).
  • Inspect the drive belts.
  • Test alternator output.
  • Remove and replace alternator if found to be faulty.
  • Re-test alternator output.

Our recommendation for alternator replacements:

Ask your mechanic to inspect the condition of the charging system during every major service. The mechanic should also clean and tighten the battery cables during every major service.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Alternator?

  • Dead battery or battery will not hold a charge.
  • Dim lights.
  • Battery warning light is on.

Why repairing your alternator is important:

Your alternator charges your battery, which powers the electronics in your vehicle, such as the radio and the air conditioning. The battery is also needed to turn on your vehicle. A malfunctioning alternator will not charge your car’s battery, and your vehicle will eventually run out of battery life and not be able to start.
