How to Troubleshoot to Determine Whether a Starter or Starter Solenoid Is Not Working
by python in Cars
If you turn the ignition key in your automobile and all you hear is a clicking noise or the engine turning over very slowly, the issue could be the starter or the starter solenoid. Both cause issues with engine failure and both present failure in the same manner. Fortunately, almost all vehicle manufacturers mount the starter solenoid to the side of the starter. This makes it easy to determine whi

How to Connect a Remote Starter Switch to a GM Starter
by Ben in Cars
Remote starter switches are very handy, especially when performing tasks under the hood that require cranking the engine, such as testing compression, resetting the distributor and adjusting valves. Depending on the location of the starter solenoid, clipping the remote starter lead onto the solenoid activation wire can be a challenge. This is especially true for General Motors vehicles.Difficulty:

How to Tell the Difference If Your Chevy Starter Is a 153- or 168-Tooth Starter
by Jérôme in Cars
Chevrolet uses either a 153-tooth or 168-tooth starter depending on which flywheel or flexplate is used on your year, make and model Chevy. Generally, the 153-tooth flexplate was used on small-block Chevrolets while the big-block Chevys used the 168-tooth flexplate, though both are interchangeable. If you have a flywheel that has bad teeth or you want to change the type of starter, simply remove t

How Do I Know If a Starter Solenoid or Starter Needs to Replaced?
by David Colebatch in Cars
For do-it-yourself mechanics, a vehicle that won't start is reason to immediately start running down the possible reasons and how they might be diagnosed. A vehicle's engine usually will not start because of a failure of one of three parts--the battery, solenoid or starter. If you have determined that your car battery is in good, working condition, test and pinpoint either the solenoid or starter

The Meaning of "Starter Offset" on a 1966 Ford Mustang Starter
by BabaBooey in Cars
Gear reduction starters are non-standard car starters that use offset. The Ford offset gear reduction starters provide a direct drive movable design that reduces manufacturing costs. These starters were used sparingly in the 1960s, moving into main stream production in the 1970s. OffsetThe starter offset on a 1966 Ford Mustang refers to a measurement. This measurement is taken generally from th

How to Know If You Need a New Car Starter
by neosephiroth86 in Cars
The starting and charging system on vehicles can be tricky to diagnose. The battery has to put out enough amperage to turn the starter solenoid. The starter solenoid needs to turn the flywheel and the plunger to disengage once the engine cranks over. The alternator needs to replace the spent voltage the battery expelled to engage the starter. Bad connections, corroded wires or failed components ca

How to Know if Your Starter or Alternator Is Going Bad
by wolf1306 in Cars
Your alternator keeps all the electrical processes in your car running. It does this by converting mechanical energy from the crankshaft into electrical energy stored in the car's battery. The radio, lights, ignition systems, battery and other electrical processes may fluctuate in reliability before the alternator actually fails. It's important to know the appropriate signs so that you can diagnos

How to Replace a Kia Starter
by avi in Cars
The starter motor on your Kia uses energy from the battery to turn the engine over mechanically for starting. This task puts a lot of stress on the pinion gear, which engages the engine flywheel. Eventually, the gear, armature, spring and other internal starter parts wear out and refuse to push-start the engine any more. If you find yourself in this situation, you can replace the starter on your K

Starter Vs. Contactor
by Tom Berthon in Cars
Starters and contactors both control electric motors; they may seem to describe the same function, but a closer look reveals their functional and physical differences. Physical DifferenceA starter usually refers to a component assembly that includes a housing, a contactor and an additional relay for overload protection and that is used to start an electrical motor. A contactor is an electrical
