Stefan was great!. I have a very tiny car that unfortunately doesn't have much clearance for working on it. To replace my alternator Stefan had a lot of work cut out for him, and he did an amazing job with it. He was able to come out to my house on short notice and stand out in the freezing cold to fix my car.I was quoted a few different prices for an alternator replacement, YourMechanic had the lowest price. They are friendly and thorough! I love YourMechanic.com and will absolutely be recommending them to everyone!
It went smoothly, no bad issues to report, car is run normal and I'm would use there services again

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.

I usually don't go outside the dealership on car maintenance or repair but I thought I'd give Your Mechanic a try. Peter arrived on time. Parts in hand and performed a vehicle inspection. Made me aware of any potential problems that might need some attention. He changed out the Altinator in a timely manner. Started the car. Everything was fine for about 2 minutes then the engine died. Peter went through all the protocols of what could be wrong but couldn't find anything. The only possibility was the just installed rebuilt Altenator was bad. At no extra charge he replaced it with another one. Perfect! Peter really knows his business. Highly recomended.

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.
