Unfortunately it is not covered by the powertrain warranty. The powertrain warranty covers internal parts in the engine and transmission, but doesnt cover components such as the alternator, starter, ac compressor, power steering pump, etc.
If you have an extended warranty, it may be covered by this, depending on level of coverage you bought.
Below are details of your powertrain warranty:
