Carter Subaru Ballard Common Services: Failure to Start Service & Repair

Schedule your failure to start service at Carter Subaru Ballard in Seattle, WA

Thanks to the complex nature of modern car starting systems, if your car isn't starting in the morning, it'll be impossible to say why without going under the hood to look for ourselves. In that case, give us a call and we'll be happy to help you find a tow for your Subaru. We'll get to work diagnosing your vehicle's problem as soon as your car arrives at our service center.

The Most Common Reasons a Subaru Won't Start

If your Subaru won't start, it's almost always because either fuel isn't getting to the engine, the spark plugs aren't firing or the starter motor has burned out.

If the spark plugs aren't firing, you probably have a dead battery. We can easily recharge it for you, or - if your current battery just won't hold a charge anymore - replace it instead. Or, if the spark plugs themselves are bad, we'll replace them. Spark plugs in modern cars often begin to wear out after about 100,000 miles of use.

If everything is okay in the electrical system, we'll next check the fuel lines. A clogged fuel filter or failed fuel pump can make it impossible for enough fuel to get to the engine to start it up. We'll replace a part of the fuel system that's gone bad to fix this issue.

But if the fuel lines and electrical components are all working as intended, then we'll take a look at the starter solenoid and the starter itself. The starter gives your engine the initial push to "turn over" and begin running on its own power. If the starter gear has broken or the motor has simply worn out, we'll need to replace your starter to get your vehicle running again.

No matter what's gone wrong with your vehicle's starter system, you'll want a high-quality fix so your vehicle continues to start strong for years to come. Our expert technicians have the skills and tools necessary to diagnose your vehicle's starting problem, and get it repaired quickly and correctly. Don't mess around when your vehicle simply isn't starting - trust the factory-trained Subaru experts instead!
