Jason was excellent and very informative. He arrived on time had a discussion on the issue of the vehicle and he said no problem and took over from there. He was done in no time and even went out of his way to alert to me of future maintenance items I should keep an eye on that he noticed while working. I will definitely request him again for future work.

Dan was there on time and did the necessary work in the allotted time. He's not your run-of-the-mill mechanic. Smart guy and a great conversationalist.
I have always been my daughter's mechanic, but she now lives away from home and her car needed repair. The YourMechanic service was just what we needed to get her car back on the road. Dan was very professional and effective, showing up on time with the right part and got the job done without her having to be towed and wait in a repair shop, and the price was very competitive. A real bonus was the overall car condition report provided by email. I couldn't be more pleased and would recommend Dan and YourMechanic to others.

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.
