Alternator Stator Coil
Your vehicle’s manufacturer has hired the world’s best automotive engineers to create parts and components that help keep you on the road. When alternators began to replace generators in 1960, their purpose was to supply energy to suit the higher power demands of the more complex and powerful vehicles of the day. Alternators have multiple components that work together to convert AC and DC energy. The stator coil is an immobile part compared to the twisting motion of the alternator rotor. As the rotor turns, the magnetic field of the rotor sweeps through the coil and produces an electrical current within. Without this piece, power can not be generated and when alternators fail, the stator coils are often the main culprit. Replacing an entire alternator can get pricey, but for anyone with a little mechanical aptitude, a failed alternator can be brought back to life with brand new replacement parts such as a new stator. Discount Starter & Alternator specializes in aftermarket replacement parts for cars, trucks, crossovers, and SUVs.
