Car Starter Repair Service

What's a car starter motor and how does it work?

The starter motor is a powerful, compact electric motor that will turn a car’s engine over at about 200 RPM in order to start the engine. The starter is at the terminus of a circuit that includes the battery, the ignition switch, a neutral safety switch, relays and fuses.

When you turn the ignition key to start, or press the start button in some vehicles, the starter circuit is completed and the starter will run. Most starters have a small pinion gear that engages a larger ring gear on the flywheel when the starter is powered on. The pinion gear turns the engine flywheel at about 200 RPM. Since the flywheel is directly connected to the crankshaft, all engine components will then turn in sync and the engine starts.

When to replace the starter?

Starters are relatively durable but most will eventually fail in one or more of the following ways:

  • Intermittent operation of the starter. Starters can develop bad spots on the armature which will cause intermittent operation. This causes the starter to work sometimes and other times when you turn the key nothing happens.
  • Starter turns too slowly. Internal electrical and mechanical faults can cause the starter to draw too much current and in some cases the current drawn will exceed what the battery can supply. A consequence is the engine may not start as rapidly.
  • Unusual noises on starting. If you hear any type of grinding or other unusual noise while starting the engine, that should be investigated as the noise could reflect an internal starter failure or the noise could be due to pinion gear failure or flywheel ring gear damage.
  • Starter doesn’t function when turning the key. In some cases, the first symptom of a starter malfunction is a complete failure of the starter motor. This happens when you turn the ignition key to start the car, the starter motor does not function at all.

How do mechanics repair the starter?

  • If the starter is determined to be faulty, the battery must be disconnected prior to commencing any work. Once the battery is disconnected, the wiring to the starter is disconnected.
  • Starters are bolted to the engine block or the transmission case. Generally, there are two bolts. The procedure to access the starter varies across car models and can require removal, or lowering, of other vehicle components.
  • Once the starter is removed and a new starter is installed, the mounting bolts are tightened to the OEM factory torque specifications, the electrical connections are cleaned and re-attached to the starter and the starter is tested to confirm normal operation.

Is it safe to drive with a starter problem?

Once a vehicle engine is running, the starter is not in use. However, if you know that the starter is malfunctioning or working intermittently, you may be left stranded if you turn the engine off and the starter doesn’t function when restarting the engine. Should you know or suspect a problem with the starter, it is best to have the problem repaired to avoid being left stranded.

When replacing a faulty starter keep in mind:

  • Prior to replacing the starter, simple diagnostic tests should be performed to ensure that the problem is a faulty starter versus a weak battery, faulty neutral start switch, or other faulty electrical component in the starter motor circuit.
  • Starters draw large amounts of current from the battery, much more than any other electrically powered device in your car. This makes it important that the electrical connections to the battery are inspected, cleaned, and tightened as necessary. Cables to the starter should also be inspected for corrosion and replaced as needed.

I just bought a 05 Impala v6 automatic. It's very used, and when I first started driving it, I did notice that the shifting felt like it was slipping. Also, the gear shirt bar that moves the lever is in bad shape. It was having a difficult time getting into 4th gear on the freeway drive home, so I used cruise control, thinking that would take some pressure off of the transmission. I don't know if that's relevant, just saying everything. I got off the freeway and stopped at a light . The car wouldn't move. I tried push starting it in neutral like you would a manual, apparently autos don't do that ( I really really hate auto trans and I don't know anything about them as a result). Then I turned the car off and started it up again. It drove for about 1/16 of a mile at about 4000 RPMs. I did that about 5 times til I just got home. I do have a quart of trans fluid and I was going to try flushing that, but it doesn't seem as simple as just slipping.

Well I hooked up an aftermarket stereo system to my 2002 Honda Accord. 2 12 inch subwoofers, 1200 watt amp and a pioneer head unit. After I got it all hooked up and running correctly I started the car tested it out for about 15 minutes... Everything was fine and it sounded great. Well I go to leave about an hour later and my check engine light comes on and my car started having trouble accelerating. I pulled the fuse from the amp and pulled my negative battery cable and then put the battery cable back on left the fuse out and my check engine light went away and everything was fine again?? Was it pulling to much power? Should I hook up the remote wire somewhere else? Or could it be a bad ground wire?

Accelerator is not responding
