Starter motors are a critical component in every car. For those who don’t know what a starter does, it basically derives power from the battery to turn on the engine’s pistons, when you turn the key in the ignition.
Over time, starters being electrical components, can wear off, or may stop working due to manufacturer defects. If your starter is faulty or worn off, you may experience any of the following situations:
- Engine does not fire up on turning the key
- The engine turns on intermittently after turning the key
- A grinding or shrieking noise emanates from the starter when the key is turned
Often starter issues may appear as battery issues. One might think that their battery has died, when in fact it is the starter that needs a fix. Thus, it is wiser to get the help of skilled mechanics to diagnose and fix such car failures.
