Alternator

The alternator is your car’s electrical charger. It generates direct current for recharging the battery. It also helps power the other electrical loads of your car. It’s various parts are contained in an aluminum housing.

It’s a good idea to have the alternator’s drive belt checked at every oil change. Intermaco will do this. A loose belt can reduce alternator output and run down your battery.

Battery

The battery is the backbone of your vehicle’s electrical system. It supplies power to the starter and ignition system. It also delivers the extra power needed when the electrical load exceeds the alternator’s supply.

You should have your battery and it’s connections checked at every oil change. If your battery is more than three years old, it’s a good idea to think about replacing it. Your Intermaco auto carries a variety of quality name-brand batteries.

Starter

The starter cranks the engine when the ignition switch is turned on. It’s located on the back of the engine or the front of the transmission.
