Toyota Starter Motor Replacement and Repair near St. Cloud, MN

We’re all used to the familiar sounds of getting into our vehicle, turning the key and letting the vehicle do the rest. Sure, cold mornings may sometimes mean it takes a few more times to turn over before the engine starts. In general, however, we’ve got a pretty good handle on how long to wait before releasing the key or the start button. What happens when it doesn’t turn over, though? An engine that doesn’t start may have an issue with its starter and this issue demands attention from Toyota-certified service technicians like our team at St. Cloud Toyota!

What Does the Starter Motor Do?

Appropriately named, the starter motor uses electricity to begin your engine’s four-stroke power process by kick-starting the system. When this small, but crucial, component isn’t functioning at 100%, your engine can’t start and thus you’re stuck.

If your starter needs to be repaired or replaced, you may have noticed some of the following symptoms:

  • The engine doesn’t start
  • Starter continues after the engine has kicked into action
  • Inconsistent number of turns before the engine starts
  • Unusually-loud whirring sound when the key is turned

If you think your starter motor is bad, getting it fixed is crucial. You never know where you’re going to be when it finally decides it’s done.
