When I start my car it clicks

When I start my car it clicks

Typically when you hear a click when attempting to start your car it is a sign that you have an issue with your starter. The starter has a solenoid and over time they wear out and need to be replaced. The solenoid itself can be replaced, but it is typically more cost effective to just replace the starter assembly. There are other reasons that you may hear a click too. The best decision would be to have it checked out just to make sure prior to replacing something that may not need to be replaced.

Why won't my car start

Why won't my car start

There are quite a few reasons that your car may not start. The first thing we check is also the easiest it's your battery. Batteries have a life span of 5-7 years depending on the quality of the battery and the climate that you live in. If you have dramatic highs and lows, then it can shorten you battery life. Likewise if you live in an area that doesn't have those then your battery may live longer than the 7 years.  Give us a call and let us take care of you 541-791-2886 Happy Adventures, Heather
