Car Starter Repair Service & Cost

What is the Starter all about?

A starter is an electrical motor that is connected to the battery. The job of a starter is to set the engine (pistons, crankshaft, etc.) in motion when you turn the ignition switch on. Once the engine starts and is in motion, the job of starter is done. If the starter goes bad, the engine will not crank properly when you turn the ignition key on or may not crank at all.

Starter

Keep in mind:

The symptoms of a faulty starter are similar to that of a dead battery. Without the power from the battery, the starter cannot get the engine in motion. In order to determine if the problem is the battery or starter, test the lights, radio, and horn. If they do not work, a dead battery is likely. If they work, it is more likely a problem with the starter. Since the starter is an electrical motor, it will eventually fail and require replacement during its service life.

How it's done:

  • Inspect the starter and ignition switch.
  • Remove and replace starter if it has failed.
  • Test for power going to starter.
  • Inspect the starter relay, grounds, supply cables and battery.

Our recommendation:

During regular maintenance and checkups, your starter should be inspected. If your vehicle ever has trouble turning on, you may have a problem with your starter, and you should schedule an inspection.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Starter?

  • Car does not start or starts intermittently (when turning the ignition key).
  • Single loud click but engine does not start.
  • Starter operation is noisy.

How important is this service?

The starter is a very strong electrical motor that is in charge of setting your engine’s various components in motion. When you turn your key to ignite the vehicle, the battery sends power to the starter, and the starter’s motor begins to operate. This motor then turns the crankshaft, and moves the pistons and other components of the engine, which allows all the parts to move when the ignition system ignites the fuel.

When the starter fails, the engine’s components will not be put in motion, and the engine won’t work. As a result, the car won’t turn on. If your starter is malfunctioning, you’ll likely hear a clicking noise as the ignition system does its job, but since the engine’s pieces are stationary, the engine will never catch, and your vehicle won’t turn on.

As usual,Josh was extremely knowledgeable, articulate, and works quickly, despite my presence asking questions....:-)...This comment is based on numerous visits since 12/15...sadly because aging Euromobiles need lots of TLC...but that's not Josh's problem.....

Dave

Dave showed up at the exact time and finished the complicated job in 2.5 hours. The coolant had to be emptied in order to fix the issue. He topped it up and warned me that it might need a little bit more water after driving a few miles. The coolant warning did come up and I topped it up and no more issues since then. The buggy temperature level / thermostat/check engine is no longer a problem and I should be able to pass smog now.

Jonathan
8 years of experience
Jonathan showed up early for his scheduled appointment. That doesn't happen often in life. Ask your doctors office. He was fully prepared for the reported issue with my car. He informed me that the job may take 20 minutes or hours, based on the complexibility of the bolt location and if they were factory standard. Most of the bolts were tightened back in 1983 and had not been loose since. He took almost 2 hours but the job was done correctly. My test drive proved the work to be correct, He will be recommended to others and will be requested to come back for any other repairs needed on my cars
