5 things to look at when your car is not starting!

Most of the time, people face many issues with their cars either while going out for work or while coming back home. Some of them succeed in diagnosing the problem and eventually try to fix it. While the rest who are not experts fail to solve the problem. Not being able to start the car’s engine is one of the major issues that people face. There are 3 components mainly needed to start the car’s engine: air, fuel, and a spark without which, ignition won’t be possible. And if despite having these 3 main components properly working, what if the car fails to start? One needs to check the other sides of it! The advancement of technology has become highly complex and computerized, as a result, today’s new car engines don’t even resemble the engines of decades past. But there is nothing to worry about as long as you have the most reliable car doctor ZDEGREE to solve all your car problems! Many times, being a car owner, you try to solve it all by your self before heading towards the car repair shop. We, as an automotive expert, suggest

5 things to check on when you find your car is not working before you come to us

  1. If your car is not starting, check if the radiator has failed! 

The radiator of a car is one of the most vital components that help the car to run over long distances. The equipment regulates the temperature of the engine, which helps the engine to function at a normal working temperature. Radiator failure can lead to the failure of your car’s engine. So, if you notice a sudden increase in temperature, we suggest you to immediately stop the car and open all the windows. Then turn the car heater on with fresh air mode. Doing this will help the heater to take the heat from the engine and will throw it inside the cabin. And if this still does not work, then feel free to get in touch with us at 04 3105600 / 800 933 4733. Bring your car to our garage. We will fix your car’s problem in no time.  

2. Check if the starter has failed!  

“There must be some fault in the motor”- Yes, this is exactly how most of you think when you find your car having trouble or completely failing to start. A failed starter will often produce a loud single click or a series of clicks when you turn the key. This happens when the starter is unable to engage with the flywheel to spin the motor. We suggest you follow three steps: 

  1. At first, turn on the dome light and watch it while you try to start the engine. 
  2. If the dome light turns bright, try tapping on the battery terminals.  
  3. Lastly, try smacking the starter with the tire iron from your car jack.  

Despite doing everything, if you still find your car’s starter is not responding then, definitely you need to seek our consultation.  

3. If your car is not starting, check if there is any fault in the alternator! 

An alternator’s main purpose is to maintain the battery. It uses the engine power to create a spark and sends it over to the battery to keep it fully charged. Most of the time, the battery drains out due to the overpowering the accessories, which results in the failure to spark the car engine. We suggest you to first check if the alternator of your car is faulty, with the help of digital volt-ohmmeter. With the help of this tool, you can easily see how much voltage your alternator is putting out. Despite checking through voltmeter if you are unable to solve the problem, then do not delay. Instead, get your car to the trained mechanics. 

4. Check if your car has got clogged fuel filter! 

Another common issue that creeps up on cars is a clogged fuel filter. Your car’s fuel filter generally takes the particulate matter out of your car’s fuel before it enters the engine,  to reduce fuel adulteration and enhance the performance without harming the combustion chamber. If the fuel filter is clogged, your car’s engine won’t get enough fuel. If this is the reason why your car isn’t starting, then you really need to change your car’s fuel filter from the nearest car repair shop. 

5. Dead battery? Your car battery needs a jump-start! 

The battery is the lifeline of any vehicle. Your car battery will die if you leave your lights on overnight. Having a dead battery is one of the most common reasons for your car not startingAnd if you can’t fix the problem all by yourself, call our mobile tyre garage, ZDEGREE- which is equipped with battery jumpstarting equipment and a wide range of batteries to choose if the battery is damaged beyond repair.
