Starter Problems Need Attention Today

Did you know there are several warning signs that your starter needs professional attention? Have you ever tried to start your engine in the morning, and all it does is make a whining noise? It might even make a loud grinding noise similar to when you accidentally turn the key after the engine has started.

If you hear a grinding noise and ignore it, you might damage your flywheel. Freewheeling occurs when you hear a whining noise and your engine isn't cranking. This is a result of the starter gear not co-operating with the flywheel. You might need a new starter when this occurs.

Some problems are more serious than others. If you see smoke when turning the key, you might need to get towed to the nearest service station. It is important that you get all the maintenance recommended by your service adviser and contact your local dealership for service today.
