What is a Car or Truck Engine Starter?

“A car starter is a powerful electric motor that cranks your engine in order to start your car. The starting system consists of the motor itself, and the attached solenoid. The solenoid is what takes battery power and delivers it to the starter motor. It also pushes the starter gear forward, allowing it to mesh with the gear teeth of the engine’s flywheel. A high current is needed to start your car, so your battery has to have enough “juice” to enable the car starting system to work properly. Most of the time, when a car won’t start and the battery is fully charged, the starter motor is to blame. Starters do wear out.” *

Car Engine Starter Problems – Frequently Asked Questions

Comprehending all the specific points of car starter replacement and problems is not for all. Nevertheless, here are some of the frequently asked questions we get when your vehicle engine won’t start but the lights come on just fine.

What’s the Price For a Car Starter Replacement?

As starter systems often vary from engine to engine, there is no price we can quote for every model, and especially not for every service center. When do you call, however, be sure to have your year, make, model, and trim level handy. Even then, it will require a diagnostic to provide an estimate.

How Does a Faulty Starter Sound?

A bad car starter can make a variety of noises. These can range from unmistakably loud clacking sounds to high-pitch screeching, or unpleasant grinding noises to irregular whirring. Even when the battery is fully powered, one might still turn the key and hear warning sounds at all. This is typically because of the miriad components of the starter system.

How to Tell if Your Volkswagen Vehicle Starter is Going Bad?

When checking to see if a Volkswagen car starter is needs to be replaced, every mechanic, factory-trained or not, should always begin by testing the battery. Generally speaking, batteries need to be changed out far more often than your car engine starter. This is easily done with a load tester or battery multimeter. If it’s working, it’s still possible that it’s the battery connections, relay fuse, computer, theft immobilizer, or neutral safety switch. As always, your best source is your local car dealership service center. Short of removing and testing the broken starter, a diagnosis typically includes a process of elimination.
