How To Recognize Starter Problems

In order to drive your car, you need a starter that functions. If you are having problems starting your vehicle, and not sure what the symptoms are for a starter problem, here are a few tips that may help you get on your way. A smart thing to remember before we start is to never touch the starter yourself unless you have unhooked the negative side on the battery terminal.

Tips:

If you see smoke coming from the vehicle when starting, you may have an electrical problem with your starter. If your starter is soaked in oil leaking from the motor, it would be wise to address the oil leak and replace the starter if necessary. If you are hearing a whining or grinding noise when starting, or simply nothing happens, you probably have a starter problem.
