He arrived a little early and had already started preparing before I got home from work. I needed the alternator replaced and he finished the job within 1.5hrs. I ended up paying about $30 more than what was quoted on the website but it was out of his hands. Overall great experience!

My car's alternator died one night, and the next day I went on YourMechanic because I figured that it'd be the simplest, cheapest way to fix a car that wouldn't even start. Rocco was in touch with me right after I booked the appointment (at 1030 at night, no less!) so he could make sure he brought the right part to the appointment the next day. There were some slip ups in the supply chain, which weren't at all due to Rocco but meant he wouldn't make it on time, and he let me know about it well in advance and stayed in contact the entire time. When he arrived, he was simply amazing. He answered all my questions, he made sure it was the alternator that was bad before doing any other work, and he was totally fine with me just sitting nearby, observing what he was doing. He finished the job well under book time, documenting things along the way, then did the inspection and calmed my nerves (this is the oldest car I've owned, and I'm not used to driving cars that were made over two decades ago), and even taught my dad something new. Overall, Rocco was probably the best possible introduction to YourMechanic. I feel like I lucked out getting Rocco on my first booking, because he made me a complete supporter of YourMechanic. Thanks to him, I'll be using the site again and recommending it to others, and I'll definitely direct anyone who needs work done to him.

Jeshuas was early, professional, and did a great job! This is a much better way to have work done to your car then guessing if the local shop is going to overcharge you or not.

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.
