David showed up early and I could see where he was on the map, so I left early as well. The work was fast and professional. The work was also within the expected time and price quote. David was friendly and knowledgeable. The website is great, too! For me, this saved a tow charge. Will definitely use again.
David was awesome! He replaced my starter and really fixed my day! I appreciate all the help!

I thought that David was very professional, knowledgeable and competent and appeared to have very good work ethics. David came earlier than our scheduled appointment which was a major plus because it allowed me to make me get to my appointment ahead of schedule. I would definitely recommend him to others and I will be requesting him to do my other services.
This appointment started off a bit rough since it was a rescheduled appointment after the last mechanic never showed up for my initial call. David worked around the poor weather and made sure to keep me aware of what was going on before getting here. The service itself was quick and well done and he had me ready to go in no time I would definitely book him again for future service needs

Russell went above and beyond what I thought a mobile mechanic would offer. The starter was a little bit of a struggle but he got it done. Super friendly and just talked to me the whole time. If I ever need another mechanic to help me I will be calling Russell 100%.

We were unable to start our car late Saturday evening and called a bunch of local auto shops only to find that they were all closed on Sunday. I had read about YourMechanic and thought of giving it a try. Our appointment with Duane was booked for Sunday noon but he came two hours early! Within a few minutes he was able to pinpoint the problem to a bad starter. He gave a quote and we decided to go ahead with it. Within one hour he was back with the part and replaced it in about 20 minutes. We were very happy with our service.

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.

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.
