Amazing work!
He is awesome, always does a great job and I love picking his brain about the car, even if he's not working on the particular question at the time. He is very patient and answers knowledgeable and honestly.

After getting the work agreed upon with the main office, the mechanic was able to complete the job. So far so good. It took him a while longer to replace the part but I guess that goes with the territory. Working on cars sight unseen has the potential for unexpected situations. The mechanic worked away until the alternator was replaced so kudos for his hard work. I enjoyed being able to continue my telecom at home while the work was being done. Very convenient.

Casey Dmitriev was superior in every way. His work showed that he is highly talented as a mechanic and the decency of his interaction was outstanding. Casey was so helpful. It was a rare experience of trust in an automobile repair process from the price to the advice. I would recommend Casey and this company to anyone needing this kind of service.

Whitney is a true professional. Showed up to the appointment at least an hour before the actual scheduled time! Because of this, we were able to start work on my car earlier than expected (which is a good thing). There are still some other things that need to be done with my car, since I didn't want to spend a boat load of money in one sitting. I hope to work with Whitney again, and would highly recommend YourMechanic to my friends and family.

Rick showed up a few minutes early and was very professional. He answered all questions and he quickly replaced an alternator. Will definitely consider him next time work needs to be done, and to friends who have vehicles they can't get to a shop.

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.
