Kevin arrived early and began working right away. He was courteous and pleasant to work with. He made sure to explain and help me understand the steps and work he was performing. There was light rain scheduled during our session, however Kevin came very prepared with a canopy tent to work under. Highly recommend, would definitely have Kevin work again on my car!

Noe was efficient and explained to me exactly what had caused my alternator to fail. He explained his recommendation for future service and didn't pressure me when I said I could do a few of the items myself. He gave me a new quote right away that didn't include what I didn't need. I appreciated his timeliness and knowledge.

I was very skeptical about using this site, would they send someone knowledgeable, reputable, etc. etc... I was very pleased to see that not only did Carlos arrive on time, he was 20 minutes early!! He introduced himself and we discussed the problem my car was having. Carlos came prepared with part in hand and all necessary tools to complete the job. He did his 50 point inspection and took pictures, all the while explaining what and why he was doing things. Carlos had the installation of the alternator done in record time. He made suggestions on future services I would be needing to get done, and wrote it all up in his detailed report. I would Highly recommend Your Mechanic and will be using the service and requesting Carlos again!!

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.
