Read Here to Tell If Your Vehicle's Ignition Needs Service

If you are having problems starting your vehicle, your ignition may need to be serviced. It can be difficult to tell which component is malfunctioning, which is why we have explained a few signs that can help you determine if it's the ignition.

If you observe a grinding noise when you try to start your engine, the starter drive gear could have excessive wear. Another sign that your ignition is bad is if you hear a whining sound when you crank the engine. This could mean that the starter gear isn't engaging properly with the flywheel, and it is crucial to have it serviced immediately in these situations because you may need a starter replacement. Other signs of a faulty ignition may include an oil-soaked starter and smoke coming from the engine.

If you need to have your ignition inspected, contact our service center at Volvo Cars of Burlingame in Burlingame, CA.
