Daniel is an expert mechanic who is very knowledgeable and professional. He was timely and efficient at pinpointing the mechanical and electrical issues with my Pontiac Solstice. His friendly demeanor made him approachable with questions I had about the health and safety of my vehicle. He accurately pinpointed the cause as to why my vehicle wasn't operating as normal and quickly and efficiently handled the issues to their resolution. I was greatly impressed with Daniel's knowledge and skill level. He had my car up and running in less than an hour. I am happy to have finally found my lifetime, dependable auto mechanic! I rated Daniel 5 stars for all the above mentioned reasons and I look forward to referring my family and friends to his automotive expertise. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Extremely professional and highly recommended

Excellent service. Eduardo showed up and did what I asked for, he replaced the alternator in 1 hour. But the price of the alternator that I was charged by YourMechanic had a $100 premium added from what CarQuest priced the same part number. Thank you.

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.
