Starter Replacement in Des Moines, IA

Maybe you first notice the engine cranking a little slower than normal when you try to start on a cold morning. Or it could just be a crisp "click" when you turn the key.

Either condition could be a symptom of a bad starter. The starter is a powerful, electric motor whose job is to crank the engine until it fires up. The starter requires a lot of electrical current to operate, and it works really hard to turn the engine fast enough to get it to start.

But while slow cranking or a single click could indicate a bad starter, they could also be something else entirely. Both of these conditions may be symptoms of another, simpler problem, such as a loose or dirty battery cable connection or a weak battery.

That's okay, because the technicians at Des Moines, IA Cottman are extensively trained in starter diagnosis and replacement. They'll examine your car's starting problem, let you know exactly why it isn't operating properly, and, if it needs a new starter, they'll give you a terrific price on a top quality replacement.

Even more important, they know how to analyze the entire electrical system, to determine whether your car's problem is in the starter, or is being caused by a battery or charging system problem.

Which means that, when you bring your car to Des Moines, IA Cottman, you'll never pay to have your starter replaced unless you really need your starter replaced. That's a promise that you can count on.

Have you noticed a change in the way your engine cranks? It may be giving you a little warning that the starter is getting ready to go. So before it leaves you stranded, now's the time to get your car over to your nearby Des Moines, IA Cottman center and have the starting and charging system checked.

Waited a little too long and now your car won't start? Have it towed over to Des Moines, IA Cottman or give us a call and we'll get it towed for you. Call 515-421-8593 right away, and we'll make sure to get your car fixed and back on the road... fast.
