Ford Starter motor replacement
Why Do I Need To Replace My Ford Starter Motor?
A starter motor has an important job which is to help the Ford engine kick into action. The starter creates the initial cranking revolution of the engine, once the engine has come to life it then operates under its own combustion power source.
Your Ford starter motor plays an important role in starting the engine if it fails you won't be able to start the car.
Start Motors can fail unexpectedly over time, especially if you do frequent short trips, the vehicle has electrical faults, the starter has dirty connections or it's covered in oil.
There are a number of reasons a Ford starter could fail but what are the signs the starter motor is failing or died? The most obvious sign is that the car won't start if you still have power but no engine start when you turn the key then it might be the starter. There could be smoke from the engine bay or an odd clicking, grinding or whirring noise when you try to start the car.
When a Ford starter motor dies there's not much you can do, other than getting it replaced. If you have a manual vehicle you could clutch start the car to get it to a workshop to have it fixed but you won't be able to start an automatic and the vehicle may need to be towed or the auto electrician will need to come to you, that's where the experts at AutoGuru can help!
