San Leandro Automotive Alternator Belt
Doral’s Auto Repair is a recognized leader in the San Leandro area for battery charging, starting system, and charging system repair and service.
The alternator belt is part of the charging system. It runs from the pulley on the alternator to the crankshaft and spins the alternator which in turn produces the electric current necessary to power all electrical systems in the car. As a matter of fact, if your vehicle ever suffered from a dead battery – even though you recently replaced it – that likely would have been a failure of the alternator to recharge the battery. The alternator belt transfers mechanical power from the crankshaft to the alternator, causing it to spin and generate electric current. If it ever fails, your vehicle’s alternator will cease to produce electricity, and the vehicle will rely totally on battery power – this will eventually lead to the battery being drained, and the car becoming inoperative.
When you bring your vehicle to Doral’s for service, as part of the complimentary inspection we check the alternator belt, so we will let you know if it starts to crack, or looks like it may need replacement. At Doral’s Auto Repair we offer a wide variety of electrical system repairs, and we back our work with a 36 month / 36,000 miles warranty.
