Punctual, fast, efficient and complete. First time user and was very tentative about this service. But Rod changed my mind and let me know about all the other services Your Mechanic offers. I will be spreading the word!!
Rod was on time, excellent job done, and it only took him a few hours, in the middle of the job it was pouring down rain but it did not stop rod. I would definitely recommend him for any type of car repair service that you mean

Nathan was amazing! I will be using his services again. He was very thorough and explained everything to me. YourMechanic is such a genius concept! Why would I go to a repair shop again, when I can have the mechanic come to me?

In a nutshell, joe was fantastic even though a bolt on my alternator gave him hell. He ended returning to my home three times after having to purchase a special kit to remove this crazy bolt that was stripped and did not want to come off. He returned for the third time this morning right at 7:00 am. Hearing my car start around 8:20 am was music to my ears. There’s a warranty on the part. He provided a quick overview of my cars condition with the tires, brakes, fluids. All good. I now say I have a mechanic on call if I ever need one. Thanks Joe!!

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.
