Express Auto Service & Repair

It’s time to head for work, but your car won’t start. You may be wondering if the starter is the cause of your problem. It could be that the battery doesn’t have enough charge to start your car and it needs to be replaced. Or possibly, the alternator is failing and doesn’t send power to the battery. The smart thing to do is to head to your auto shop and ask your auto mechanic to check out your car battery, alternator, and starter

If you’ve ruled out the battery and alternator, you may be wondering just what are the signs of a starter going bad?

  1. Clicking sound when you turn the key in the ignition.
  2. The lights come on, but the engine won’t start.
  3. The engine doesn’t crank or rev up.
  4. The starter has overheated and you notice smoke coming from the car.
  5. The starter is soaked with oil.

The starter system is made to be durable--designed for repeated use under a variety of weather and road conditions. However, as with all other vehicle components, the wear and tear of daily use, extreme conditions, and poor maintenance can create problems.

There are several causes leading to a bad starter:

  • Loose wiring to and from the starter
  • Dirty connections
  • Battery corrosion
  • Damaged or worn-out parts in the starter system
  • Oil leaks

Don’t wait to get stranded with a car that won’t start. Has your car checked out as soon as possible before your starting problem leads to other car problems?
