Question Description

Help me study for my class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.

When starting engine the starter drags then picks up speed and starts.  Some times when I turn the key the gauges react but no starter turn over.  After several tries the starter will go.  What could be the problem?

Final Answer


It sounds like you have a bad starter brush. This is a carbon like material that makes contact and supply voltage to the commutator. Since that only very few are selling starter rebuilt kit, you will probably need a new starter. If you are living in the states, you can have autozone, oriely, pep boys check your stater for free.
