Your car is full of complex systems that all work together to help your car not only start, but to keep going as well. That being said, the alternator plays a critical role in this process and can make a huge difference in the way that your car runs and if it starts. Your alternator works to charge the battery in your car and to help power the electrical systems within your car while the car is running. Without your alternator, your battery is likely going to lose charge and you are not going to be able to start your car. Your alternator works to recharge the battery while the car is running so that you can start your car again and again as needed. A replacement service is needed when the alternator goes out or is starting to go bad.
Generally this type of service is not needed until you start to see signs that your alternator is going out or until it goes out fully. If you are having electrical problems inside your car, you likely need to figure out if replacement is needed. There are some different signs to look for like your electrical systems not working properly, your car losing power when you hit the gas or try to go faster, or a dead battery after you have driven when it started previously.
Delaying this service is likely going to get you stranded. Your battery is used to start your car and when your car does start off of your battery, then that indicates the battery is no longer charged. The alternator is meant to help recharge the battery while you are driving so that when you get in and try to start your car, there is enough charge to start the car and begin the entire charging process again. If your alternator is bad or going bad you may get in your car one day and it be charged enough to start then it will not start when you get back in from wherever you were and attempt to drive home.
