Hyundai Santa Fe Replacement Starter Information


Without its starter, your Hyundai Santa Fe won't be going anywhere. The starter motor does exactly what its name implies by rotating the combustion engine shaft to get it moving. Engine parts are heavy, so they need a bit of motivation to begin working properly. Although the first cars used manual hand-cranks to get their engines started, nowadays, the starter takes care of all the work.

Starter motors are usually electric, and they include numerous moving parts, like their own clutches, coils, a solenoids and housings. This means that a number of different things can break and cause your starter to go dead. In most cases, it's better to simply get a new one, but it's also important to make sure that it matches your Hyundai Santa Fe engine.

Research on Starter for Hyundai Santa Fe

The starter is a complex part that can break down for many reasons. If it starts to go or fails, it can be difficult or impossible to get your vehicle's engine going. Such a problem is often attributed to a bad battery. A mechanic will be able to diagnose the problem, but you can determine what's wrong by looking for a few key signs. Starter replacement is a common repair that automobile owners eventually face. Dealing with a bad starter may be an inconvenience, but getting a new one will allow things to go back to normal, so it's not the end of your vehicle.

Bad Starter Symptoms

A starter has a few gears that can wear out. If they don't engage properly, a grinding noise will be heard. It's loud and unnerving, but ignoring it can eventually lead to flywheel damage. A freewheeling starter makes noise, but doesn't crank the engine. The solenoid, which is attached to the starter, transmits current from the battery to the starter motor. It can break and then the starter will not work. An oil leak near the 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe starter location can damage the part beyond repair. Another situation is a shorted-out circuit, which can draw too much electricity and burn the starter. In this case, you might see smoke come from that area.

A starter relay problem is something to consider as well. You may not be able to start the vehicle even if the problem isn't from within the starter. Also, the starter may stay on once the engine gets going. If the circuit doesn't close, the starter will run continuously and will fail if you don't address the problem. When the signal to the starter is disrupted, you may hear clicking when you turn the ignition key, or there may be intermittent problems starting the engine.

How Long Does It Take to Put a New Starter in a Car?

The length of time it takes to replace a starter depends on the make and model of your vehicle. Manufacturers place starters in different locations. It may take only 15 minutes, but 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe starter replacement can also take over an hour. Some brands of cars have the starter inside the engine block, so replacement will take significantly longer.

What Is the Starter in a Car?

The starter is a type of electric motor designed to initiate the operation of an engine, so it can then run under its own power. Inertia will then keep the engine going from cycle to cycle. The first starter was built in 1896 in England. The typical starter has a solenoid that pushes a lever when current is applied. This lever then pushes a drive pinion on a driveshaft in the starter, meshing the pinion with the ring gear on the flywheel. A starter contains a brush, armature (the starter's motor), and field coils.

Cost of fixing Hyundai Santa Fe Starter Problems

Replacing a 2009 vehicle starter costs $412 to $514. Repairs at the 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe starter location run from $209 to $276, so model year does have something to do with pricing.

Reviewer: 1st time online auto parts shopper

I needed a starter for my car, but it was very hard to come by. First I went to Auto Zone but the part was $200 with the employee discount I was offered. Couldn't afford it so I went 3 auto salvages. and still didn't have the right one. Finally I went online for the first time and found Parts Geek, I found my part for $80 with FREE SHIPPING. It was new, inspected and guaranteed. It fit my car perfectly.
