What a stress free repair! Robert showed up at the time they said he would be there (not a 4 hour window like many companies). He finished the work in the time they said he would and what a convenience to not have our car towed somewhere, it was done right in our driveway! Very professional person and never tried to upsell us like a dealership would. Thank you! You will definitely have our return business.

After being unable to start our SUV we were in need of a mechanic. We normally would visit our regular mechanic but since we couldn't start the car it would need to be towed. In addition our mechanic doesn't work weekends which causes even more inconvenience to have to go during work hours. Needless to say we decided to look into a mobile mechanic before contacting our roadside assistance. We had never used a mobile mechanic and were a little worried. Not just about a mobile mechanic but a different mechanic altogether. We scheduled an appointment for 9am on 12/6 to have our starter checked out, which was a great turnaround time since we made the appointment on Saturday at 4pm. We were assigned Carlos. He was on time, friendly, and worked very quickly. He found that it was in fact our starter that was out. The cost of the inspection was $70. We then booked the repair with Carlos, but he wasn't available until 1pm the same day. Since we were completing the work with the site the $70 was applied to the repairs so instead of $195 parts and labor it was $125. Carlos ended up calling us around 10:45 and said he was here. Apparently he had something open up earlier and was able to push our appointment up. He finished the work after about an hour and a half. During the inspection he gave us a full report on our cars health which is really great. Also took a lot of pictures and gave us an explanation on things to watch out for. Overall we can't recommend Carlos enough! He is a wonderful and knowledgable mechanic!

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.
