Why Does My Car Grind When I Try to Start it?

When the weather is cold, sometimes your car can be hard to start. Many times, people automatically blame the battery. If your vehicle makes a grinding or whining noise, it might be your starter, and it might not be the weather either. The grinding sound could mean that it is time to have your starter serviced in Gardena, CA.

The starter is a gear that helps to crank the engine and start it turning. If you stick the key in the ignition and you hear a grinding noise, it might mean the starter gear is worn. If you hear whining, it means the flywheel is not engaging, and you can damage your engine. If your starter is showing any of these signs, it is a good idea to have it serviced as soon as possible.

The Honda service specialists here at DCH Gardena Honda will be happy to service your starter and perform the other routine maintenance that you need, too.
