Alex did a great job!! While replacing the alternator he noticed the drive belt was cracked down the middle and alerted us that would be easy to fix at the time, with not much more additional cost. The really good point to that is it would have cost a considerable amount of money to have the problem fixed later, if it had not been fixed. I happened upon Your Mechanic by chance, gave it a try, and now I am sold. I am also telling all my friends about it. I wish I had know about this sooner.

Jerome set the bar high w/his open & honest communications. Even before his onsite visit he reached out and provided me recommendations on the services I requested. I had requested one service that required an alignment lift so he recommended that I wait until the vehicle was in a shop. That honesty goes a long way and proves he had my best interest in mind. When onsite he worked quickly and efficiently. Thanks for the excellent work!

Tony was very professional and respectful. He spoke and carried himself in such a way that he didn't come across as someone I had never met before. He didn't seem bothered by the fact that I watched him do the job and he even took the time to acknowledge my presence occasionally . He actually engaged in conversation with me and even gave me tips and pointers on other parts of my vehicle that he saw needed attention. He did the job quickly and professionally and he checked behind himself to make sure everything worked properly. I would recommend him 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.

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.
