What are the signs of a bad starter motor?

●     A clicking noise when key turned on switched to start

●     Smoke coming from the car

●     The starter is soaked in oil

●     The engine just will not crank

●     A grinding noise when starting up

+

How long does starter motor replacement take?

Can you jump-start a bad starter?

No, jump starting a faulty starter will not spring it back to life as extra battery will not be enough to turn over the engine. Your starter needs to be functioning well to successfully crank the engine.
