The role of the chevy starter


The starter is an important part of the engine's operation and a key part of the car's electrical system. A defective chevy starter will make it much more difficult or even impossible to start the engine.

The vehicle's electrical circuit often fails due to a breakdown in one of the links. The Chevrolet starter is no exception, but with proper care, it will last for years. So that the breakdown of the car isn’t a surprise, pay attention to the recommendations: 

  1. Timely maintenance inspection. For new cars, once every 2-3 years, for used cars once a year.

  2. At the appearance of signs of failure immediately conduct a diagnosis of the mechanism.

  3. Get high-quality parts in advance, including the starter.


On our site, you can find the original Chevrolet starter or individual parts. We also have a one-year warranty, free shipping, and full documentation.

Why is the starter not working?



If the chevy starter has become too slow to start the engine or has stopped cranking at all, you can do some self-diagnostics. The cause of the breakdown may be electrical or mechanical in nature.
Faults in the electrical circuit:

  1. Violations in the ignition system.

  2. Discharged battery.

  3. Oxidation of contacts. Terminals should be clean, if there’s a plaque - rub it "to shine" with sandpaper. 

  4. The mass contacts are unreliably fixed. In this case, twist them harder.

  5. Damage to the wire connected to the battery or to the retractor relay. You just need to replace them.


If the electrics are okay, you should look for a mechanical failure, they often occur due to wear and tear of parts and exposure to media:

  • Worn brushes (one of the most common problems).

  • Problems with the armature winding (short circuit or break).

  • Failure of the relay. In this case, it is necessary to completely replace the starter.

  • Failure of the bendix.


If the chevy starter is working, but a strong noise is heard under the hood, possible causes of breakage may be:

  • Heavy wear of bearing bushing.

  • Wear of gear teeth.

  • Loosely fixed starter parts.

  • Lack of reliable locking of starter by bolts


Mechanical failure is eliminated by replacing the defective part or fixing the starter mounts more tightly. If the chevy starter is working, but a strong noise is heard under the hood, possible causes of breakage may be:

  • Heavy wear of bearing bushing.

  • Wear of gear teeth.

  • Loosely fixed starter parts.

  • Lack of reliable locking of starter by bolts.


Mechanical failure is eliminated by replacement of faulty part or by tighter fixation of starter fasteners.

Replacement of Chevrolet starter



You can replace it by yourself. This process willn’t take much time and has a simple algorithm of actions. The main thing is to follow the instructions so as not to break the mechanism:

  1. Place the car over the observation pit or use an elevator.

  2. Disconnect the wire connecting the starter to the battery.

  3. Chevrolet starter is easier to pull out from the bottom, so clear the way beforehand by removing the engine guard.

  4. Next, you need to unscrew the three bolts that fasten the starter. The first two bolts are easier to unscrew from the top, and the lower one is freely accessible from the bottom.

  5. After the bolts are removed, the starter can be easily taken out (the length of the connected wires allows you to do this).

  6. It is more convenient to disconnect the cables when the starter is already removed (there are only two).

  7. New or repaired chevy starter return to its original place according to the same algorithm - connect the wires.

  8. Put it in its original place and bolt it to the mounts.

  9. Return all the parts that were removed earlier to get to the chevy starter.

  10. Connect to the battery.
