Signs Your Starter Might Be Bad

Your starter is something that you should consider having checked as a part of routine maintenance. The starter is a gear on the bottom of your engine. Eventually, they wear out.

When they do, they might give you a few signs. These signs include:
  • Grinding when you try to start the car
  • A whining noise
  • A small bit of smoke coming from the engine
  • Failure to start completely
If your car has a small oil leak, it can cause your starter to go bad due to oil soak. These are some good reasons to have your car serviced on a regular basis.

A worn starter will typically send a few signals that it needs to be replaced. If your car is showing any of these signs, or you just want to be on the safe side, it is time to schedule a service appointment with Hall Lincoln soon.
