The Basics Behind Alternator Replacement Services at Big O Tires

An alternator is part of a vehicle’s charging system, and is an essential component in keeping a vehicle operable. The alternator works with the battery and voltage regulator to keep electrical components running. Usually located near the front of a vehicle’s engine, an alternator can be identified by its aluminum body, vents, and an internal or external cooling fan. Depending on the vehicle, the alternator pulley is driven by either a serpentine belt or v-belt. This mechanical energy is then converted into electrical energy as internal parts operate to create a magnetic field used to produce the alternating current output. The alternator can reach high temperatures fast, so an operative cooling fan is important. Although the battery can keep the vehicle running for a little while, it will not be able to keep it running for an extended period of time if the alternator malfunctions. In fact, the alternator serves as the charger for the battery as well. Because a bad alternator will eventually render the vehicle inoperable, it is imperative that a driver have this component repaired or replaced as soon as possible.



Why Should You Have Alternator Replacement Services Performed at Big O Tires?

When your alternator begins to malfunction, seek out our alternator replacement service as soon as possible. Warning signs that your alternator requires repair or replacement will involve your vehicle’s electrical components. For example, a dashboard warning light may appear, or headlights may dim. In cases where the alternator begins making noise, it is possible that the belt is simply loose. Other times, the smell of burning rubber may permeate the air and signal a problem. No matter what symptoms you are experiencing, we can help. The next time you suspect alternator issues, allow us to take a look and help get you back on the road again.

What’s the difference between Repairs and Maintenance?

Repairs are services that are required or necessary when something on your vehicle is not working properly or may have worn to the point where a replacement is required to maintain the performance of your vehicle.

Maintenance is the routinely scheduled services, inspections and part replacements that your vehicle manufacturer recommends based on the age or mileage of your vehicle.

The schedule for performing these maintenance services varies from vehicle to vehicle. You will find the schedule for your vehicle in your owner's manual. Following this schedule is the best way to make sure your vehicle is performing as it should.

Service Warranty

All BIG O Tire dealers in BC pride themselves on being able to provide the best customer service and the highest quality service work available anywhere. To support that, a service warranty on workmanship, service and/or parts is provided by each independent BIG O Tires dealership. These warranties vary from one aspect of our business to another - Tire warranties are different from Wheel warranties, and each of these differ from warranties on Service work performed during the course of a repair or maintenance on your vehicle. Ask your BIG O dealer at the time of purchase of these products and/or services what the warranty period is and what is covered under it.
