Zach was awesome. He was punctual and very knowledgeable with cars. He did an amazing job and was efficient. Getting the additional inspection is so helpful because it pointed out any other potential issues. I never once felt Zach was about selling add-ons. He was genuinely interested in doing what needed to be done. I will definitely be requesting him in the future.

Professional, arrived early, and it is a great bonus that he can do the work right in my driveway. Price was cheaper than Midas wanted to charge me, though the price was not quite as low as would be deserving of 5 stars (charged for a refurbished alternator at $330 (+labor and tax) when brand new alternator for my exact car model at AutoZone is $279).

Brett did a great job. Due to difficulties beyond his control, he was given the wrong alternator by the parts store, the job was somewhat frustrating and took longer than anticipated but he persisted and got the job done. I am pleased with Bretts performance, with the outcome of the job and with the "Your Mechanic" operation. The arrangements were easy to make, the mechanic was easy to work with and a good mechanic and the price was right. If I need a mechanic I will use Your Mechanic. I am telling my about the positive outcome of using Your Mechanic. Thenks

Shaun is incredibly helpful and was willing to teach me about my car and answer questions. He even offered his knowledge on questions relating to other parts of the car besides the busted alternator. I called the shop I usually take my car to and they wanted twice as much as YourMechanic quoted me. I thought this entire process was a joke or a hoax but I am so thankful I decided to have just a little faith. Shaun is fantastic. I've already told my friends about him, and YourMechanic. Additionally, I have my next service issue scheduled.

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.
