Alex was late due to traffic - this a big city and that stuff happens - but he kept me informed (the dealer doesn't do that, to they?) and it was not a problem. He was quick, clean and efficient, and his service was 70% cheaper than the dealer's price. As part of the service, he did a overview of maintenance needs on the car (none) and spotted a minor repair I wouldn't have caught. Let's review - certified mechanics, working on *your* schedule, at *your* place, at a fraction of the cost the dealers charge. Brilliance.
Alex did a great job!! While replacing the alternator he noticed the drive belt was cracked down the middle and alerted us that would be easy to fix at the time, with not much more additional cost. The really good point to that is it would have cost a considerable amount of money to have the problem fixed later, if it had not been fixed. I happened upon Your Mechanic by chance, gave it a try, and now I am sold. I am also telling all my friends about it. I wish I had know about this sooner.

Joshua was amazing and really polite. He got the job done quickly and even stuck around a little to talk more about what I can do for further maintenance. Definitely will be requesting him for future work.

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.
