I had several issues wrong with two separate vehicles and family in town to entertain for the weekend. Having Art from 'YourMechanic' to come directly to the house and to successfully fix all of the issues from replacing a starter, fixing a exhaust leak, to a simple oil changed, all within a few hours, really showed me the range and abilities of this mechanic and others employed by 'YourMechanic'. My expectations for this company are now through the roof!!! Great job.
This is the first time I have used a mobile mechanic at all, and I'm pleased with YourMechanic. I hope you guys do well, because this is a service that is necessary. It felt better than going to the shop -- where often they try to up-sell me, which leads me to feel suspicious of their motives. Not to mention shops are mostly uncomfortable to stay at, and you can't watch them work on your car, which also leads me to feel suspicious of their work. I am happy with your service and fair prices.

I had my car serviced at a friend's house. That night when I started the car to go home, there was a strange cranking noise, like metal rubbing together The car doesn't always start up properly and Phil said I should have first requested an inspection, so I am going to have to request his services again.

He was wonderful, he was right on time. My car is quite old (1997 Nissan Pathfinder), and he told me the other issues my car had. He did his job super quickly. I would definitely love to use Oreste again!

Honorio is my new go-to mechanic. I love my mechanic who has worked on my car for the past decade, but times are a changing - and this is the future! Honorio was polite and courteous and he truly goes above and beyond! He came over to my house Saturday morning and confirmed it was my starter that needed to be replaced. I bought a new battery from AAA even though mine was only two years old thinking that it would solve the problem of my car having problems starting - stupid me. Honorio showed up almost a half hour early for our 9:30am appointment and was done by 9:45am (woohoo more weekend time for me)! We booked our next appointment for 10:30 Tuesday, since Monday was Memorial day. Low and behold, on Sunday Honorio contacted me saying he received the parts and if he could come on Monday, I said most definitely! I asked him if he could swing by in the morning, to which he asked how about 7am? Incredible! I'm barely awake at 7am so we settled on 9am. He again was 20 minutes early and got to work right away. Success! My car started and he applied the inspection credit to this service. He also told me this part was wearing down under my hood (which my other mechanic had also told me awhile ago). Honest and guy really knows his stuff. Will ONLY be booking Honorio in the future for my repairs!

Greg was awesome, friendly, knowledgeable and thorough. He arrived on time, explained his process to complete my repairs and was very professional. Greg completed the repairs to my satisfaction, cleaned up after his repairs were complete and explained what he had done to my vehicle. I will be using Greg for all of my repairs from now on!!

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.

Starter

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.
