Q: Screeching noise when turning key

asked by on

My car will not start. It makes a loud screeching noise when I try to turn on the ignition.

A: This noise may be the starter internal gear...

This noise may be the starter internal gear reduction making the noise. The starter would need to be replaced to get rid of the noise. The battery should also be checked. I recommend having a mechanic, like the ones from YourMechanic, come by and check your car for you to diagnose the screeching noise when you try to start, and quote the repairs needed.
