I Have to say my experience with Your Mechanic was less than perfect. I did not know what to expect since it was my first time using this company. I received my quote and agreed to it, made my appointment with Franky O. The earliest one was a week off, so I took it. Waited the week and the morning my mechanic was to come received a text saying he was on his way. Then received a text saying it was cancelled and I would have to reschedule. Angry that I had already waited I reluctantly agreed to reschedule with a new mechanic for that Monday since it was Easter weekend and that was the earliest they could get me in and offered a discount for my inconvenience. Thinking everything was set I went on with my day. Then received a call saying there would have to be a price increase for my part. Angered I called to talk to them and received Mitch in costumer service, after explaining again the situation and the feeling that I shouldn't be paying more for the part since they should have already had the part from the morning they were supposed to put it in was ridiculous. Mitch then agreed to lower the price another $10 from the new quote with the discount. It was still more than my original but since I had already waited a week and needed my car and it was lower than going to a shop, I agreed. Here I will tell Mitch that I am sorry that he had to deal with me. I was less than friendly. Jim Steil showed up exactly on time at 7am and put the new part in my car and had it all done by 8:30am. I was extremely pleased with Jim and his work. He was polite and turned my experience with this company around. Honestly this company can thank Jim for making me think that it was all worth it. They said this was very unusual and never really happens, but if it were not for the excellent work Jim and his friendly nature I probably would never call them again. I really hope this was a one time thing because the price was very good and my mechanic was very nice and professional. THANK YOU JIM STEIL!!

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.
