An ignition system is comprised of numerous components that enable an engine to run efficiently. When an ignition fails, it will prevent the car from starting. If your car fails to start, it may not be a dead battery; it could be your ignition. Here are some signs that can help you recognize if your vehicle’s ignition needs to be serviced.

Grinding and whining noises are typically signs of ignition problems. If you notice a grinding noise coming from the engine, the starter is worn or out of alignment. Moreover, whining noises can occur when the starter isn’t engaged with the flywheel. Other signs of ignition problems include smoke coming from the engine and rough idling.

If you notice any of these signs, your ignition needs to be serviced immediately. When these issues are ignored, it could damage the entire engine. To schedule an appointment for an ignition service, contact our staff at Crest Lincoln.
