Your vehicle's starter motor is as important as the battery and engine.

Its function is to initiate the engine’s ignition process and enable other systems to function. Once you turn on the ignition, the starter motor activates and rotates the engine, facilitating the intake of air.

Maintaining your starter motor in good condition is essential to keep your vehicle working properly. With a faulty starter, you won’t be able to start your vehicle and may need to call for towing services. This is an inconvenient situation that every driver wants to avoid.

If you’re having trouble starting your vehicle, Saul’s Autotek is the one to call. We have ASE-certified mechanics who repair or replace starter motors. Our team understands the hassle of having a failing starter motor, so we’re here to help. With over 31 years in the industry, we can help you get your vehicle backup and running in no time!

Signs Your Starter Motor Needs Servicing

Most of the time, a vehicle’s starter motor doesn’t just malfunction abruptly. Here are some signs to look out for:
Man having trouble starting his car

1. Strange Noises

Look out for a clicking sound when you turn the key. It’s an indication of a bad starter motor.

A grinding or whirring sound, on the other hand, is a sign of a starter motor that needs a replacement.

Engine is not revving up after car starts

2. Engine Problems

If you turn the key and the dashboard lights up, but the engine doesn’t power up, you’re dealing with starter motor problems.

An engine that doesn’t rev up even after a jumpstart is also a sign that your starter motor needs servicing.

Overheating and smoking car engine

3. Smoke

The starter motor is a part of your vehicle’s electrical system. It’s susceptible to short circuits and blown fuses.

By trying to start your car multiple times, the starter motor can overheat and cause electrical issues, which often come with smoke.

Importance of Starter Motor Servicing

Keeping your starter motor functioning properly and in a good state can benefit you and your vehicle. Here are some reasons why repair, replacement, and maintenance are important:

1. It allows you to drive your vehicle efficiently.

You can’t use a vehicle with a failed starter motor. Having a starter motor that’s working and in good condition, on the other hand, lets you start your car smoothly.

Since it relies on the battery’s power to get the engine in motion, a starter motor in good shape can prevent damage to the battery and other components.

By having your starter motor serviced, you can avoid getting stranded on the road or anywhere else. It also helps you avoid the need for towing.
