Andrew really made my day! First off, he got here an hour early, which was great. He had the replacement part with him, based on what I told him about the problem. He did a quick check of the alternator and confirmed it was bad. He did some tweaking on the bill, removed a couple of charges, applied some discounts, and got the final bill down to half of the original quote! Plus, he got the alternator replaced and the truck running in less than 30 minutes! Thanks to the fantastic service Andrew provided, I'm back on the road! Great job!
Super fast, friendly, and got the alternator replaced without any issues. Would definitely use again in the future! Thanks for your time.

Matthew is very knowledgeable and very informative. I would definitely use him again!
I was more than satisfied with Matt’s service on my 2007 Camry. He was able to arrive early and made sure that I was available. I thought my alternator needed to be changed. He asked a few questions about the symptoms and agreed that it was indeed the problem. His workmanship is certainly admirable. He went above and beyond when he made it easy for me to get to my radiator cap!!!!!

Awesome work. He not only arrived on time, but he came early (after calling )!! He answered all of my questions and completed the work (alternator replacement) in no time. I have already recommended Your Mechanic to two people and will continue to do so.

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.
