When you turn the key in your vehicle’s ignition switch, the engine will crank over, it’s as simple as that right?
No, there’s actually a lot more that goes into getting the engine to rotate. The starter motor is the one component most responsible for initiating the engine rotation, by creating the required turning over of the engine during the initial engine ignition process, thereby, allowing the correct chain of events to timeously coincide with all the required processes, i.e. Engine rotation; fuel delivery; and ignition spark from the distributor to the firing order via the spark plugs in the correct sequence. The starter motor plays an important role in allowing your vehicle’s engine to create the contact and sequence of the firing order and required spark delivery. Without the starter, you won’t be going anywhere.
Here are AutoZone’s most common steps to remove an old starter motor and replace it with a new one. Before we get into it, let’s discuss some of the most common causes of alternator failure, which are:
To find out the root cause, ensure that the power supply works by checking the voltage with a multimeter available from AutoZone outlets. If there is sufficient voltage, then the fault is likely to be in the starter motor itself.
