OEM Part Info - Alternator
The alternator is the part of your car that keeps the power humming throughout the automobile. It works hand in hand with the battery to keep your charging system running in order to provide power to all the electrical components. The alternator is driven by the crankshaft. This little piece of equipment is usually at the front of the engine compartment. It is bolted on to the engine in order to receive power from the crankshaft.
The alternator forms electromagnetic power, which it sends directly to the battery in order to provide enough voltage to run the electrical system of your vehicle. This part contains many other moving parts that aid in the creation of the electromagnetic power. When these parts fail, the entire alternator will fail. This will stop the battery from producing electricity to the electrical components, which in turn, will leave you stranded along the side of the road. Unlike the ability to jump a battery that may be losing power, an alternator will leave you stranded until it is replaced.
If you are without power and need to replace your alternator, call 1-800-248-7760 and talk to the parts staff at Blue Springs Ford Parts to get your genuine OEM Ford factory alternator today.
