Acura MDX - Alternator - Houston, Texas
Eduardo is an amazing technician with a very strong skill set and incredible work ethic. He arrived early, worked non-stop for 6 hours and got all my work done and cleaned up. He never asked for anything, worked at a fast pace, had a disciplined process and was always going above and beyond. Eduardo did my timing service (belt, water pump and other pieces) and replaced a bad alternator on my 2012 MDX. I'd strongly recommend him for almost any auto mechanical work you need!

My car was completely dead and I was not able to get it to a mechanic or a location to buy the parts and it was very peaceful knowing that someone could come out and help me to get my car running again I needed an alternator and a battery replacement Breck was very nice and professional when he got there he checked out the car to make sure what was needed and then he said go on back inside and relax and I'll call you when it's done. Also my appointment was at 12:30 and Breck was right on time it took about an hour and I will definitely be using your mechanic in the future. Was not stressful at all he also informed me of other little things that might need attention. I really appreciated that. Thanks soo much Breck u were a lifesaver.

Porsche Cayenne - Alternator - Houston, Texas
Ben is the most experienced mechanic I've ever known. Friendly, polite, precise, concise, and extremely fair. He did an alternator replacement in my Porsche Cayenne (something difficult to do); didn't break anything and didn't scratch the car in the process. He'll go the extra mile (pun totally intended) to make sure the car runs like it should. Thank you, Ben!
Honda Element - Alternator Repair - Houston, Texas
I have a 2006 Honda Element that needed alternator replacement. I had the parts and started the repair but couldn't get the work done in time to be ready for work by myself. My husband and I both had critical work deadlines and obligations to fulfill and didn't want to call a tow truck for an alternator replacement. So we turned to mobile mechanics, a new venture for me since I usually try to take my car to the dealer. I am SOLD, and I may never take my car to a dealership again. Ben came by earlier than the appointment time, was VERY responsive to texts, and his work was fast and very high quality. This man is clearly a highly skilled professional. Ben went above and beyond, and the service he provided was so excellent that I would consider calling him INSTEAD of going to a dealership with my 2006 Honda Element. After the alternator replacement, we noticed the A/C was not working, and Ben came out AGAIN the same day after fixing and noted that something got jostled. Within a matter of minutes he had the car fixed up with new alternator and A/C running. So in only ~1.5 hours, this man came to my house twice, replaced my alternator, did a thorough vehicle inspection (now on the website), and made sure the A/C worked. This man is honest, hardworking, and efficient. Can't say enough good things!

Toyota Corolla - Alternator - Houston, Texas
My car's alternator had gone out and I was worried I would have to get a tow to a repair shop. But then I found out about mobile mechanics and booked an appointment online with YourMechanics. Oscar arrived ahead of the scheduled time and had all the parts needed to make the repairs. He was very knowledgeable and professional. He was able to finish the repairs in about an hour and a half and even gave me tips on how to make sure whether the battery needed to be charged or not. Overall was a very good experience and would recommend Oscar and YourMechanics to others. It was very fast and convenient.

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.
