"It's not the impression you make, it's the impression you leave." This could not ring truer than with my very first experience with Theodore and Your Mechanic today. Between the consistent automated text updates leading up to Theodore's arrival, to the insane knowledge Theodore had on my Murano, to the final "walk through" of the repairs done, this first experience proves one thing: I will never take my car to an auto shop again. Ever. Period. With Your Mechanic I saved over 60% on my final bill. Combine that with the added perk of having your repair performed ANYWHERE (home, work, etc.) you'd be a fool not hiring them. Yes,I am sold. I am also thankful -- thankful I didn't have to tow my car to a shop for service. Thankful for the savings. And thankful it was done so quickly and efficiently.

Very quick service. Daniel is very knowledgeable and professional. He explained thoroughly any further work that needed to be done and was able to prioritize it in a way that doesn't create an unsafe driving experience.

This was my first time using a mechanic online, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised that my mechanic Steve arrived early and went straight to work. He did a great job, and I will use him again.

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.
