This was my first time using YourMechanic so I wasn't sure what to expect. Noe showed up early like a true professional. He gave me a time estimate of an hour to hour and half - and ended up finishing in less than an hour! Also, the actual total was considerably less than the initial quote. He exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend Noe to anyone who wants above and beyond service.

Good service - he was able to determine the cause of the noise on the steering column. He was unable to fix it on the spot since replacing the part required shop tools for precision.

All about Starter Replacement

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.
