Check Your Starter Before Replacing Costly Components

Have you ever tried to start your vehicle, but were greeted with an engine that failed to turn over? The battery is the first place to check, but the issue may lie with the starter. There are a few signs to be aware of to identify a faulty starter.

The first sign is smoke that is coming from the starter. This is a sign that too much power is being channeled to the starter motor due to a short, prolonged operation or connection issues. Another sign of a faulty starter is an oil leak. Because of its location, starters are subject to be affected by oil leaks which can shorten the lifespan of the starter.

If you are having problems with your vehicle's starter, then don't hesitate to come see us at Grand Junction Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. We will repair your car and have you on your way as soon as possible.
