Information - Starter Motor (Engine Starter)

Starter serves to run the car engine. It is usually installed on the left side of the engine. When operating the starter consumes large amounts of electricity and at each start-up discharges the battery. Therefore, every use manual has a paragraph that describes how to use the starter: the critical time and the smallest period after which it can be turned. Car parts makers often prescribe such rules: to turn it not more than for 5 seconds and restart it no earlier than in one minute. Otherwise the battery strongly discharges and therefore does not have time to recover. To prevent this in modern cars monitoring of the starter on and off intervals is performed by the airborne electronics.

Starter is always running under the most adverse and sometimes just extreme conditions. According to the function it fulfils, this small electric motor needs to move up and then rotate with the desired speed the weight of the engine hardware loaded on it. But only the starter with a good technical condition of the engine can meet the challenge. But not always the state of the engines is appropriate. All sorts of technical problems and engine wear, poor quality, heavily thickening during freezing temperatures oil and poor mixture formation lead to the effect that is called a difficult start-up. It is considered to be the primary enemy of the starter.

If you need to change the starter, you can get this spare part in our online store at a low price. You can also purchase such spare parts as shock absorber bearing, wiper or ignition coil.

What you need to know about starter replacement: lifetime limits, common defects and their signs, tips and recommendations

Averagely, the engine starter works on the car for 5 – 6 years, but useful lifetime can vary according to vehicle operating conditions. The following defects are the most common for this component: soiled one-way clutch mechanism of the starter, soiling or wear out of brushes, thermal damages of the commutator, drive gear teeth or flywheel teeth wear out, short circuit in armature coil, solenoid breakdown, breakage of wires, body damages and wear out of the car starter shaft bearing.

Diagnostics is required if the starter starts working only after several attempts to start the power plant or in case if the car doesn’t start at all. Unusual screeching sound can appear when turning on the engine starter system. If the starter doesn’t turn off after its start, it points at necessity to check its condition.

Checking the car electro starter consists of its examination after disassembling. All the component elements are checked with the help of an amperemeter, voltmeter and special stands. Defect diagnostics and replacement of the geared starter are performed only at a service station. These works can include demounting of the battery together with the battery carrier; besides, they imply manipulations with high-voltage wiring. Such procedures are very laborious and take professional skill in car repairing.
