Shaun is amazing at what he does we really appreciated his time and patience's with are car and us and even though the problem is internal and need to be fixed at the dealership he did everything he was hired to do! I couldn't of ask for a better mechanic to work on my car he is truly top of the line and goes above and beyond to make sure his customers are happy and understands what's going on start to finish! I wish I could give him more stars because he truly deserves it!
Shaun was so nice and explained things to me. Very knowledgeable and pleasant.

Jeremiah is great. "YourMechanic" needs an upgrade. Jeremiah was sent to the wrong address. I have used yourmechanic at two locations but I believe I was clear as to the location for the work. Jeremiah was sent 22 miles (one way) out of his way. Our car is fixed but not without problems from the initial call being misdiagnosed.

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.
