Frequently asked questions about starter motor repair & replacements in Cheshire
Read our answers to questions about starter motor repair costs, symptoms and more.
What does a starter motor replacement in Cheshire involve?
Depending on the vehicle and the circumstances, the mechanic will carry out some or all the following
- Mechanic will inspect the starter motor terminals and electrics of the ignition system.
- Mechanic will subject the starter motor to voltage test.
- If necessary, the mechanic will replace the starter motor.
- Mechanic will advise if any other parts need to be replaced.
- Mechanic will start the engine to establish whether the starter motor works correctly.
What are the symptoms of a bad starter on a car?
- When you turn the key or press the button to start the engine, nothing happens!
- When you do try to start it, knowing the battery is good, you may hear a single click from the starter motor, which is the solenoid firing, but there is no rotation.
- Providing the battery is in known to be in good condition, it is the next obvious point of a vehicle failing to turn over.
- Please do note though, if you hear a rapid clicking, that is more likely to be the battery not having enough power to actually turn the motor, but enough to keep firing the solenoid, in which case it's the battery that is faulty or discharged.
- When the battery is known to be in good condition but the engine is very laborious when turning over.
How long does it take to replace a starter in Cheshire?
On average a starter motor replacement will usually take around 1 hours, but can take anywhere from under 1 to 2.5 hours. The time that the job takes will depend on a range of factors. For example, your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.
How do you know if your starter motor is broken?
There are a number of symptoms that will tell you whether the starter motor is broken. The most obvious one being when you turn the key or press the button to start the engine and nothing happens.
Is a bad starter motor an MOT failure?
The starter motor in itself would not mean an MOT failure. However, an MOT tester will need to run the engine for an emissions test so if the vehicle cannot be started this may in turn lead to an MOT failure.
What is the average cost to replace a starter in Cheshire?
The average cost to replace a starter is around £225. The exact price will depend on your vehicle and the type of starter fitted. An exact price for your vehicle can be found by entering your postcode and car registration number at the top of the page, and selecting the starter motor repair.
How do you start a car with a bad starter motor?
The method to use to start a car with a bad starter motor will depend on the starter motor's issue. Often the starting issue will be due to a bad or weak battery. In those cases jump starting can help temporarily to get adequate current to the starter motor to help start the vehicle. Push starting could be another option if you have a manual. If the starting issue is due to the starter itself, it will be more tricky to get the car started. In those instances, or if you don't know what the issue is, it is advisable to get help from a professional mechanic to track down the issue and help you start the car.
