It's likely that your starter motor will require rapid repair or even replacement to get your car up and running again.

●     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

+
