What is a Starter?

The starter helps the car start. It’s really that simple. It’s a small motor (and, as a result, it’s often called the starter motor), that is responsible for getting your car’s primary motor off and running. It’s actually a fairly simple device. While the starter is small, it’s quite powerful. It can turn the car’s motor over at a pretty slow speed (around 200 revolutions per minute, whereas most cars idle just under 1,000), but that’s all that is needed to get the motions in your car’s engine going, so that the car can turn on. It’s a pretty cool and somewhat complex operation that I’m guessing you don’t really care about, so here’s the basic version. When you turn key (or press the “ON” button) in your car, the starter motor is activated. It has a gear, called a pinion gear, which attaches to the engine’s flywheel. As the starter turns the engine follows suite, sucking in air and fuel, until it’s up and running at full speed. As for power, the starter gets its juice from the battery. Which is why your car won’t turn on if the battery dies, because the starter has no way of doing its business. It probably goes without saying that your starter gets a lot of use. Every time you use your car, the starter motor has to spring into action. And since it gets used so much, it can wear down rather easily, at which point it will need to be replaced.

Symptoms of a failing Starter

Your car won’t start or engine cranks slowly

Did you really need me to tell you this one? The name is right there, and I just explained it. The starter helps the car start. Without a starter, the car can’t start. Do the math. If the starter motor is fully dead, you won’t be able to start your car. End of story. But if the starter is just starting to die, and kind of hanging on to life, then you might experience intermittent starting. The car will sometimes turn on, and sometimes won’t. Not ideal, especially if you’re trying to get somewhere on time. It’s also worth noting that if you’re experiencing intermittent starting, it could be due to some faulty wiring in the electrical system, rather than the motor itself. Or, of course, it could be a battery issue.

Funny noises

This shouldn’t be news to you: your car shouldn’t be making weird noises. If it is, then you’ve likely got an issue on your hands. There are two noises associated with failing starters. If the car won’t turn on, it may be due to the starter motor, as mentioned above. If the car is whining when you try (but fail) to turn it on, then that’s a sure sign that the starter is busted. That noise is due to the starter motor spinning, without being attached to the flywheel. If the car isn’t making that noise, but still won’t turn on, then the issue is likely from something else. If your car is makes a grinding noise when it’s first started, then that also may be the starter. That’s the sound of the starter gear failing to disengage once its work has been done.

How urgent is a Starter replacement?

The urgency of a starter replacement is entirely dependent on how much you like driving your car. If you prefer to just sit and stare at your car, then it’s entirely up to you. If you’re like the rest of us and actually prefer to start your car and hit the road, then you’ll want to get your starter replaced asap.
