Toyota Highlander - Starter - Orlando, Florida
I’m the kind of person that looks at reviews to determine if I try something new or not. As this was my first time using YourMechanic, coupled with the stigma of mechanics overcharging or creating problems that don’t exist to wrack up cost, I was highly skeptical. The quote I got seemed honest and I was happy that someone would come to me in a space that I was comfortable with. I was matched up with Jamahl and I was glad I was. Last time I checked, Jamahl had a 5 star rating and he deserves each one. I needed a replacement of my starter ($258.31) and Jamahl fixed it and what seemed like an hour. This was also done at 6:30pm which was really convenient for me (of course, this is not the only time you can make an appointment.) He was courteous in his demeanor and it felt more like a friend doing me a favor than a stranger mechanic. We had a nice conversation throughout him working and by the end of it, he did do a brief expection of my car but it did not feel forced like other institutions that try to upsell brake pads when you go in for an oil change. He suggested my serpentine belt needed to get changed but actually showed me that there was cracking so I didnt feel like I needed to take his word for it or feel the need to “call my knowledgeable friend” to make sure his suggestion was legitimate. If you are looking for an honest mechanic who won’t make you feel inferior or feel like you are getting ripped off, Jamahl is your guy %100. If anyone gives Jamahl less than 5 stars they can KICK ROCKS....
Honda CR-V - Starter - Orlando, Florida
Jamahl is very knowledgeable and also very personable. He replaced the starter on my Honda CR-V and problem solved! Final amount was less than the estimate...that was a plus. Every step was upfront and straightforward.

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.
