Q: Vehicle burning up starters

asked by on

My vehicle keeps burning up starters. I think it is the flywheel.

The flywheel could potentially be the cause of the burning up starters. But more likely, there is a wiring issue to the starter or a poor ground on the starter. A qualified technician, like one from YourMechanic, will be able to diagnose this and repair any issues that are apparent.
