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.

Installing Starter Motor on V8 VY Holden Adventra


Ipswich, Queensland, Australia

26th Nov 2018

I’m looking for a mechanic/knowledgeable car person, to install a new starter motor on my V8 Holden Adventra. I would do it myself but don’t have a lot time currently to be banging around underneath my car to do it. I will provide the new starter motor so it’s just your time/labour that I need you for. Be aware too that this is not a straightforward job due to the location of the starter motor on the Adventra. It’s not in the same place that it is on the Commodore so you’ll need to have some knowledge beforehand or do some research yourself before commencing the task.

Highly recommend Jake. Did a great job, was quick and arrived when he said he would.
