an image of a starter motor If your experiencing trouble when you start your car, there may be a fault with your starter motor. The starter motor plays an extremely important role in the running of your vehicle, as it is needed to start the engine. A Starter motor is a high-powered electric DC motor, which uses a high current that is draws from the battery. The Terminals, battery cables, and batteries must be regularly maintained due to the high current draw, otherwise starter motor failure can occur.

Wikipedia description of a starter motor

starter (also self starter, self, cranking motor, or starter motor) is a device used to rotate (crank) an internal-combustion engine so as to initiate the engine’s operation under its own power. … In the case of very large engines, the starter can even be another internal-combustion engine.

Internal-combustion engines are feedback systems, which, once started, rely on the inertia from each cycle to initiate the next cycle. In a four-stroke engine, the third stroke releases energy from the fuel, powering the fourth (exhaust) stroke and also the first two (intake, compression) strokes of the next cycle, as well as powering the engine’s external load. To start the first cycle at the beginning of any particular session, the first two strokes must be powered in some other way than from the engine itself. The starter motor is used for this purpose and is not required once the engine starts running and its feedback loop becomes self-sustaining.
