Ty gary u did great job
Although I have confidence in my local mechanic, I could not afford their quote to fix my car. I was looking online to see what was involved with fixing it and found the "Your Mechanic" link and checked it out. I had a bit of concern, being a woman, about possibly being taken advantage of financially AND having someone come to my home to do the work (one reason I had my brother here). Gary R. arrived for our appointment 15 minutes early (appreciated). He evaluated the issues with my car and fixed them quickly and completely. He knows his stuff! My brother, Nick and I both appreciate Gary's professional, but friendly and courteous manner, besides his automotive skills. Ladies, this is a mechanic and company that has proven their reliability to me. Their fees are reasonable and you are not over-billed for the parts either. I checked. :D And then there is the 12 month, 12,000 mile warranty... Thank you, Gary and the Your Mechanic team. I will be recommending (and using) your services in the future. May God bless you for your integrity and desire to help others.

Richard was amazing!!! My car was at home and my roommate was there to let him know what was going on with my car. She's very particular about mechanics as she's an OTR trucker. She was very impressed with Richard and I am very pleased with my car. I work for Vanderbilt Hospital/ University and will be recommending Richard to all of my co-workers!! Sleep when you can Richard, you're about to be very busy!!!

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.
