Q: Clicking sound when turning over.

asked by on

Whenever i try to start my car i hear a click and that's just that. My car doesn't start. After trying so so so many times, it does finally start. Once i get it started it runs fine. But when it's been not used for a long period of hours it acts up again. I just bought a new battery thinking it would solve the issue but it didnt. I think it may be the starter that need to be replaced...what do you think?

A starter like any other mechanical and electrical part is subject to failing sometimes for no apparent reason. However, sometimes this is misdiagnosed as well and often times mistaken for something much more simple like a fuse, relay or starter solenoid. The starter solenoid is located on the starter and has internal electrical contacts that transmit electricity to the starter. When this fails, it may cause a clicking sound and will not allow the starter to engage the flywheel when you turn the key. I would suggest having a professional from YourMechanic come to your home to diagnose your starter.

Q: My car wouldn't start, but when I towed it to a mechanic to look at 2 days later they said it started right up. What could cause this?

These issues are any mechanic's worst problem. With no lasting indicator, including no Check Engine Light, it's impossible to know what happened. All you can do is hope to inspect the car quickly enough that the problem still exists. With...
