Jose, (I almost feel like I should call him "my mechanic" because after all he came to my house and worked on my car exclusively until the job was done) - was great! He arrived on time, listened to what I was telling him about the diagnostics I had already accomplished and responded appropriately to my questions. He got right to work and finished installing the new alternator very quickly. Afterward he tested everything and gave me some good advice as well as answered some additional questions I had. Overall I was very impressed with Jose and the yourmechanic service.

Eladio showed up on time and ready to work. He was professional and answered any questions I had. The repair was rather involved, which anyone who’s changed out an alternator on a 2007 Honda Odyssey will tell you, but he knew his stuff such that there wasn’t a need to remove various engine items to get the alternators out and in. Eladio did a great job so we drove away happy campers.

Kelly did an excellent job. He came across a very odd component of the process but put an extra effort - above and beyond - to complete the job. He worked very hard and I was impressed with the results. Will definitely request Kelly when we come across another fixer.

This was the second time we had Blake out for services. He was very professional, courteous and knowledgeable. He took the time to explain what he was doing. He completed the services efficiently and left our driveway clean. It was a very positive experience. I will select him again for any future services.

First time using the service and all I can say is excellent experience from start to finish. I was a little skeptical having never used anything like it before, but I will definitely use them again. The pricing was very reasonable, there was plenty of follow up to let me know what to expect every step of the way, Justin was on time , friendly, and very professional. If you have any mechanical issues use them- I will definitely use them again!

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.
