Top Starter Motor Repair related questions

If your car doesn't rev up even after turning on the ignition key, it can be a strong indicator that you have a faulty starter motor. You will also hear a clicking or grinding noise, which means that the starter was activated but not the motor. You may also see a cloud of smoke coming from the engine, especially if there is a short circuit or a blown fuse.

Yes, a failing car starter motor is a frequent vehicle problem that is easy to repair if done by a professional auto electrician. There are instances wherein the issues are only caused by loosened cables and wires, missing parts, or worn-out components, which you can send for a minor repair without having to replace the entire system.

The duration depends on specific parts that must be repaired. Most of the time, fixing the starter motor only takes about two hours, but it can also last up to four hours for complex parts with tightly squeezed bolts and nuts.

Look for a trusty starter motor repair specialist near your area through Airtasker! Just post a task that describes the issues you're currently having with your vehicle, and we'll instantly connect you with skilled auto electricians who can help address your motor problems as soon as the need arises.

Suggested reads about Starter Motor Repair

What do starter motor repair services include?

A failing starter motor is a relatively common vehicle problem. It's heavily responsible for starting the internal combustion engine to keep your car moving. Even with the best care and maintenance, it's bound to age and wear out eventually. If you're starting to notice symptoms of system failure, then it's best to seek help from an expert. Airtasker can help you find a professional auto electrician or sparky who specialises in starter motor repair, regardless of how complex the issue is.

Here's what you can expect our taskers to fix:

Faulty Electrical Connections

Since a starter motor requires multiple electrical connections to operate, even a single loosened wire can cause the entire system to fail. Cables are also prone to dirt and corrosion build-up as they're regularly exposed to all sorts of acids and substances inside your engine. All these factors may lead to breakage, but your specialist can repair or replace any loose or broken wiring to ensure that your engine is at its best working condition at all times.

Defective Starter Solenoid

If you hear a weird clicking sound every time you try to start your engine, or if it doesn't start at all, this may be due to a damaged solenoid. In this case, one of the most common causes of a defective solenoid is excessive heating. Once the ignition key has long been left in the starting position, the soldering in the main contacts can melt and end up welded together. Fortunately, this part can be replaced separately without the need to replace the entire starter motor.

Worn Out Mechanical Parts

One faulty starter motor part can already cause a series of problems. Since most of its components are made of metal, coil, and iron, they're at high risk for corrosion which can damage your entire motor system. Some issues can also be attributed to lost gears or springs, and dirty or worn-out motor brushes, armature, commutators, and field coils, among others.

Starter Motor Replacement

If there are more significant problems within your starter motor that makes it nearly inoperable, a replacement may be a more practical choice. Your specialist can assist you with purchasing a new motor system that suits your vehicle and completing a professional starter motor replacement job.

Need batteries and starter motor tested on a car license truck


Hampton Park VIC, Australia

5th Sep 2023

Hi I have a Hino Dutro 2005 (24 volt) diesel. Car license size. Starter motor was ticking and being stubborn starting. Wasn’t sure if it was the batteries so charged them today and put them back in. Only got a tiny improvement- the ticking had stopped but engine not really turning. Fan belt maybe moving 10cm then nothing! Not sure if it’s one or both of the batteries or the solenoid/starter. Would like an auto elec to let me know what the actual problem is. - Due date: Needs to be done on Wednesday, 6 September 2023
