What Does an Alternator Do?

Alternator with flat drive belt at modern truck engine

You might be asking yourself “what does an alternator do?” or “how much is an alternator?” if you’re faced with a faulty alternator in Jersey City. The service experts at Land Rover Englewood can answer that for you. The alternator sends power to your car’s electrical system when the car is running. The battery only starts the car, but does not run it. The alternator is a generator that uses the gas engine as its energy source. Land Rover Englewood will walk you through everything.

Is My Alternator Bad?

Are you afraid your alternator is all out of juice? If these symptoms arise in Fort Lee, it might be a good idea to schedule service with us:

  • Unable to start
  • Burning rubber smell under the hood
  • Battery warning light appearing on the dashboard
  • Dim headlights or interior lights
  • Whining or screeching sound after the vehicle has started
  • Devices not charging

How Much to Replace an Alternator?

“How much is an alternator?” is a question that a lot of people ask in New York City, but since prices can vary, we can’t give you an answer right off the bat. You can contact our service pros at Land Rover Englewood for a free quote on what a new alternator might cost you.

We use genuine OEM parts all the time to keep your car in tip top shape. Call us at (201) 762-0733 to get your estimate.

Is My Alternator or Battery Bad?

It’s easy to get a failing alternator and a failing battery confused. You’ll want to see which has gone on your vehicle by trying to jump start your engine.

  • If you jump start your engine and remove the jumper cables, only for the car to die right away, that means it’s likely your alternator to blame.
  • If you jump start your car and it seems to work just fine, but the battery dies again in the near future, you’re probably dealing with a failing battery.

Either way, you’ll want to entrust your car to the experts at Land Rover Englewood, who have vast training in keeping cars like yours healthy and roadworthy.
