I know that I stated that Gary did not arrive on time, but that was not HIS fault. He actually called about two hours before the scheduled time to tell me that he could come earlier, but in the midst of waiting for me to return his call he was contacted by his Supervisor and sent on another job. He then informed me that he would be here at 4:30 instead of 3:00 and was here by 4:15. I appreciate his professionalism and speed and will be recommending him to my family members who are looking to get some work done on their vehicles.

Rodney is nothing short of outstanding. He's professional, courteous, and extremely knowledgable. I would not hesitate to recommend him. I'll be contacting him for all my future automotive needs.
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.

He was 3.5 hours late for our apt, but he was very professional and checked in by calling to let me know there was traffic and other issues that prevented him from getting to us at the scheduled time. Which I completely understood and ok with. Better that than him cancel like out first apt. He was professional and knowledgeable.

First time using Your Mechanic, and wasn't sure what to expect. However, we were pleasantly surprised - the service was convenient and absolutely outstanding! Jason accurately and quickly diagnosed the problem with our car, picked up the part, installed it, made sure it fixed everything, and it did! We couldn’t be more happy with the service. Highly recommended!

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.
