Showed up early and did a great job. Will definitely use him again.
Ryan did an excellent job on our Toyota and answered a lot of the questions I had about the car. We even had the wrong part from the auto store and he waited around while we picked up the new part to deliver to him. Excellent and knowledgable and I would definitely recommend hiring him if you are considering it.

I was a little nervous about using YourMechanic for the first time since I've only ever taken my car to a dealership or a mechanic friend of mine. However, the convenience and price pushed me to take a chance, and I'm extremely glad I did! Steve was very professional, on-time, and did an excellent job. My alternator replacement took all of about one hour which is faster than any dealership I've ever been to. Also, I looked up the parts ahead of time (just to make sure I was getting a reputable brand) and was very happy to find that they were the same one the Honda dealer was going to use. I will definitely be using YourMechanic (and Steve in particular) in the future!

Great guy. I was a little late and he had no problem waiting, and had the alternator replaced and installed in less than 20 min! Thank you!

Chris was early, fast and straight forward with no BS. My quote includes an extra belt that in the end wasn't needed so I received a discount/refund after the service was done. I recommend Chris highly!

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.
