Question about 2004 Ford Escape
I am new when it comes to the parts of a car. I just recently started driving and I hope that this is not a dumb question, so here it is. what is the difference between an alternater and a starter? Do they both serve the same purpose?
An alternator provides electrical power to the car/truck electrical system and keeps the battery charged, a starter is what spins the engine over so it will start, there are few dumb questions, the more you know the less likely someone will take advantage of you in a repair shop.
