My husband and I had never used Your Mechanic, and we chose to use their service to fix our car after a friend of ours saw the site and recommended it to us. I am sooooo happy we did! Phillip was a complete professional from beginning to end. He came to our home twenty minutes before the scheduled time, and did not stop until the job was done. He was friendly, well spoken, informative about the work that was done, and we saved a LOT of money by using this company. I would refer anyone in need of car repair to this company, and in this particular town, I would suggest using Phillip if he's available! :) He's worth a tip. Thanks again, Phillip. You're awesome. If you're reading this because you need repair and you're wondering if this is legit... Your Mechanic is worth your time. - Mike and Christy
I had an outstanding interaction with Phillip. He showed up right on time and efficiently carried out the job (replaced alternator). He was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain the work and answer my questions. He was very nice, and gave me an honest analysis of the job and other issues he observed with the car.

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.
