Nearly two-thirds of vehicles are not road-worthy because of overlooked tire service. Even worse, more fatal collisions occur, especially during the winter months, due to missed inspections Noise, vibrations, hydroplaning, and accidents--this is what could happen if you don't rotate your tires.

Good tires are, above all, your guarantee for a safe and comfortable trip. They are the only contact between you and the road, and if the quality is inferior, this diminishes the vehicle's performance, not to mention the likelihood of your safety. Just consider the main functions of tires:

  • Support the car: the four tires support the bulk of the weight. 
  • Absorb road irregularities: air or nitrogen from tires act like a spring, and increases comfort. 
  • Traction and braking forces: your tires allow you to drive and more importantly, come to a safe stop. 
  • Steering: your tires turn when you turn the steering wheel.
Don't wait to see what happens if you don't rotate your tires. Schedule a tire service at Express Care Auto Center today to keep your car safe on the road

This is an interesting question since there is no counter that displays the number of starts in a vehicle or the number of times the alternator charges the battery. If you consider the number of times you start your car per day, times the days driving in a year, times the number of years you have owned your vehicle, you will only know how long that particular starter in that particular car lasted. And, of course, this will be different for every vehicle, as the starter is affected by the condition of your car battery and alternator. There are really too many variables to actually answer the question, “How long does a car starter last?”

Here is a Brief Description of How a Starter Works.

The car starter works by harnessing the power of the automotive battery. Once the key is inserted into the ignition switch and then turned to the start position, a tiny amount of current flows through the neutral safety switch and into the starter relay or solenoid. The starter motor then cranks the engine to enable the piston to create a suction drawing in the fuel and air mixture into the cylinder. The engine will then start as the spark created by the ignition system will ignite this mixture.

Facing any car starting issues? Be sure to ask your mechanic about how long does a car starter & alternator last. It helps you avoid being stranded on the side of the road.
