Signs You Need Professional Ignition Service Assistance

Ensuring your vehicle's ignition system is in prime condition is vital. There are some important symptoms and signs that your ignition needs professional intervention.

If you hear a grinding sound when you turn your key, you may have an ignition problem. In addition to being cringe-worthy, a grinding sound is a sign that starter drive gear is worn out or otherwise malfunctioning. If you hear a whining noise when you turn your key, your ignition system may be experiencing what is known as freewheeling. This occurs when the starter gear fails to engage the flywheel. If you smell or see smoke, this can be a sign of a number of problems, including a starter that is shorting out.
