  • Overall car battery and case condition
  • Cable connections
  • Hold-down hardware

Checking the starter means:

  • Inspecting cable connections
  • Inspecting mounting bolts and brackets
  • A Starter Electrical "Draw" Test, to check the amount of electricity needed to turn the engine over

Checking the starter means:

  • Conducting an overall visual inspection
  • Inspecting the drive belt
  • Inspecting the mounting brackets

  • A Charging System Test to ensure that the alternator current and voltage are to manufacturer's specifications
