Great demeanor and very efficient.
Joel was very professional. He answered any questions I had ( I only had a couple). He did the job quicker than I thought due to the rain water that had collected on a guard underneath. I would definitely use him again. I would recommend him for any mechanic job needed. Thank you Joel !!

Second time having Richard as my repair man! Very impressed with both instances. Richard was prompt in arriving on both occasions. He exemplified my expectations when he pulled up in his vehicle truly looking like a mobile repair shop. His professional appearance was only upstaged by his knowledge and passion for what he does.

Joseph was amazing!! Took the time to walk me through the diagnosis based on the symptoms my car was showing. Thoroughly checked other potential, less costly possibilities before dignosing the problem. His work was done on time, clean and the inspection of other future problems was clear and I appreciated the fast estimate and time frame in which to have repairs done before they become problematic or cause more serious and more costly repairs down the road so I can make a game plan and schedule future service. He was knowledgeable and informative and was happy to share his advice and experience without applying pressure or applying scare tactics. I will definitely be employing him again and will be recommending him and YourMechanic to anyone I can!!!

I usually do all my own work on my cars but since I never have the time with a full schedule I have been using YourMechanic to take care of my mechanical work! Kenneth is so far the BEST Mechanic I have used with YourMechanic so far! He brings all the right tools, is very thorough, works fast and efficient! 6 STARS for Kenneth! :)

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.
