A faulty starter motor will, as its title suggests, prevent your car from starting. If it is faulty, your starter motor will need to be replaced before your car can be used again. However, it’s important to know that there are plenty of car mechanical problems that may seem to indicate a faulty starter motor that in fact do not. It is always best to get a qualified professional to have a look and accurately diagnose your problem so that they can fix is properly.
Let’s look at some symptoms that may indicate a faulty starter motor.
How to tell if my starter motor is faulty –
When you attempt to start your car, a faulty started motor will prevent any noise except a single click. If you hear the classic rurr rurr rurr noise, you probably do not have a starter motor problem. If you know for certain that your battery is functional (eg. You have recently jump started your car) and you are still having starter problems, you most likely do need to replace your starter motor.

If you find that you’ve had to jump start your car multiple times, and that it doesn’t seem to recharge its battery, you’ll need you alternator replaced.

Or maybe you have an old car that doesn’t have any air conditioning at all. You can wind the windows down, but that isn’t always quite enough.
Let’s look at some of the common questions people have about car air conditioners.
