Rodeny came out twice, once to diagnosis the problem and the second time to the vehicle. On each of these instances, Rodney was on time and professional. He answered all of my questions and clearly explained the problem. The prices and services were clearly stated and the whole process straightforward and convienent. We will defintely be using Rodney again.
Rod is fantastic. He went above and beyond by statying after hours to waiting for a new part

We had the alternator, serpentine belt, idler pulley and belt tensioner on our '07 Honda Odyssey replaced. After the first mechanic we were assigned (Mark Clough) canceled 4 appointments, Tom stepped up and took care of us. He was on time. Very personable and polite. He worked quickly and efficiently and had the repairs finished on time. He took time to explain exactly what he did and showed me the parts he replaced. I was very impressed. He also took a few minutes to give the vehicle a once over and alerted me to a small oil leak. After the work was completed he cleaned up the area and double checked his work while I watched. He explained what he was looking for and the results he got. Even though it had nothing to do with him, he apologized for the other mechanics disregard for customer service. Overall, I would very highly recommend Tom. Next time work with Your Mechanic I will absolutely insist on having Tom work on our car. Thank you so much to Tom for a great job.

Damian took my alternator out and put another one in a blink of an eye. I' bet he could have done it blindfolded. A true professionall. I am glad I called "Your Mechanic". There was no way I could have done the repair. I BELIEVE I HAVE FOUND A KNOWLEDGALE, TRUSTWORTHY MECHANIC. Thanks for your service.

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.
