Travis is awesome! We had trouble with scheduling (definitely NOT his fault) and were about to call it quits with YourMechanic when Travis swooped in and saved the day. He was 1/2 hour early for our appointment, was very understanding of our frustration, and quickly had the work done and was on his way. His communication with us was excellent - text messages before, during, and after our appointment kept me informed while I was at work. I came home to find my car back to new again and my garage clean and tidy. You'd never know he'd practically disassembled the engine in there! We have already decided to use him for all three of our vehicles. We wanted the best and we got it!
Work was done well and professionally. Really appreciate the courtesy and attention provided to my concerns.

William was absolutely great! Self motivated and professional. He did a great job on our alternator replacement. Lexus dealership quoted 5.5 hours on the repair and William finished it in about 3.5 hours. Your Mechanic saved us over $800 on the repair!!
Very professional! Did a great job!!

Friendly, professional and timely! I couldn’t move my car so for him to be able to come to me was great. He was quick, efficient and made sure all my questions about other things he wasn’t there for were answered before he left. Had an appointment at 3:30pm and he called me that he was at my home at exactly that time. Will definitely be calling him for future fixes

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.
