Brandon is a top level mechanic who is knowledgeable experienced and friendly as they come. After booking he actually text me and asked if I would prefer to have him come early. Of course! I've never had that luxury offered in any other car service other than your mechanic. A couple hours after Brandon finished I had a friend ask for recommenations for a mechanic which I quickly replied to download the app look for either Brandon or John, who had helped me a couple months ago. Don't bother with a trip to the overpriced dealerships. Go with these guys (especially Brandon who is The Man with a Plan!)who allow you watch, ask questions to help educate you, and explain every step they are taking to get your car back into shape.
Very friendly and professional. Knowledgeable and efficient.

Jared arrived promptly and went to work on my car. I did bug him a few times with questions which he took the time to explain things to me. Jared is quite knowledgeable about cars and was very respectful. He quickly went to work and fixed my starter problem before my hour was up. Once he was completed he then troubleshooted why my are would crank over but not start. 2 mins later he round that my PCM fuse was popped due to disconnecting the battery. Once i swapped it out the Car started with no problems. Thanks for informing me that my 02 sensor wires were chewed on and that my upper radiator hose needs to be replaced.. I love the service that Jared gave and the way that your mechanic doesn't rip people off on repairs. This repair would have costed me 400 to 600 bucks at the local auto shops in my area.

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.
