I've an Astra 1.7dti 04 plate & it seems to be burning the starters every few months. Anyone know what may be the problem?
I've just put a new battery, alternator & earth strap on it at the same time as I put my last starter in. Got a new one today again & it's getting fitted tomorrow along with the ignition switch. The man that fixes my cars has checked everything else that could've been possibilities of causing itHi there Starter motors dont keep burning out lol....either there rubbish starters or the engine is too stiff to turn, or the ignition switch is faulty..when the engine is running does the starter disengage all right?....have you tested the battery?...are ll the connections ok...is it the correct starter motor, that would be my approach...from Fred in Essex.
How do I fix that Fred? I notice 2 starter motors ago that the cogs on the starter had little bits of them, I presume that's the bits your meaning?Shouldn't be making a whining noise that's a sign the starter isn't disengaging quick enough . Had that happen when the crap from my disintegrating flywheel started to get thrown up into the starter motor making it slow to pull the rotor shaft back once engine fired up .
