Is Your Starter Grinding?

There are a number of things that can go wrong with your vehicle's starter. The starter is the part of the engine that gets the motor running using electricity from the battery. When the starter fails, your car won't start until it's repaired.

One common warning sign that your car's starter may be getting close to failing is when you hear a grinding noise when you turn the ignition. This is caused by the starter's drive gear wearing out and failing to engage correctly, which makes the grinding noise when it slips. It sounds similar to when you accidentally crank the ignition when a car's motor is already running.

If you hear a grinding noise when you start your car, bring it to a trusted service center in Lakewood, CO for an inspection. Here at Lakewood Happy Motors, we are happy to guide you to the help you need for your vehicle.
