How much does it cost to replace a starter in Vancouver?

To replace a starter usually costs between $250 to $680 for both imports and domestic cars. The biggest issue is usually around the location of the starter which can make some jobs take 2 to 3 hours.

How to replace your starter?

Depending on the vehicle it can be a fairly complex job to replace the starter. The most important thing is that the pinions gear’s teeeth must align with the flywheel so you don’t cause any dragging. We recommend that you have a certified technician replace the starter. At instaMek we have certified mobile mechanics who can install the starter for you right at your home or office in the Burnaby and Greater Vancouver Area. Give us a call at (604) 330-0424 and we can help you out.

My car wasn't turning on and I knew it was a starter because I could hear it trying to go. Because I have a Ford Escape I wasn't able to replace it myself (big job) so I search up mobile mechanic and found instamek. They came over the same day and charged me a very fair price - the mechanic was solid and got the job done. The car runs like new and as a mechanical person myself I have to say I was very impressed with this service.
