Car Won’t Start Clicking Noise Inspection Service

Cost of a Car Won’t Start Clicking Noise inspection

It depends on the type of car you drive and the auto repair shop you go to. Our mechanics are mobile, which means they don't have the overhead that repair shops have. They provide you convenience by coming to your home or office.

Why won’t your car start but you hear a clicking noise? Here are common reasons:

A clicking noise when attempting to start your car and no engine movement generally means that the battery is too low to crank the engine or there may be a poor connection at the battery. If the battery and the connections are fine, then the starter may have stopped working.

  • Poor battery or terminals: Batteries have a limited life expectancy, and terminals can loosen or wear away.
  • Poor starter: This should be apparent from the reaction to the key. If nothing occurs at all when you turn the key, the starter may have gotten to the end of its life.
  • Ignition problem: This could be because of defective contacts in the ignition switch, or in the wiring.
  • If there is a grinding noise when you turn the key.

  • Starter is bad: Do not continue cranking the engine

What to expect?

An expert mobile mechanic will come to your office or home to check the source of car won’t start clicking noise after which a detailed inspection report with cost and scope of repairs will be provided to you.

How it's done?

Fuel system, charging system, and ignition system will be inspected by an expert mechanic to look for any mechanical damage. The expert will use an alternative source of fuel like a shot of brake or carburetor via a vacuum line. If the car momentarily starts and then dies, this indicates that you have an issue with fuel delivery.

How important is this service?

This is a serious issue that can leave you stranded anywhere if not dealt properly. Its better you book an expert mechanic to carry out a comprehensive inspection immediately.

I contacted instaMek to take a look at my car that wouldn't start. Mohamed came to do a diagnosis - he was prompt, helpful, knowledgeable and professional. Moe was able to get a replacement part right away and complete the repair on the same day. Not only is it convenient to have a mechanic come to you, but the service was great from the booking stage right through to the completion of the work.... The text messages letting you know when the Mek is on the way, and the job reports provide the value-add. Highly recommended!read more

I called Instamek to diagnose my 99 Acura EL not starting. Mohammed arrived at 4PM and found the problem wthin 15 minutes of testing. They provided me with the quote, I approved the job through my cell phone and he was back the next day to replace the distributor assembly. The whole process was incredibly simple, plus I saved $80 on a two to a garage two blocks from my home. I decided to get... the oil changed as well, because why not? Mohammed get's two thumbs up from me. Would I recommend Instamek? Absolutely! Will I use them again? Most definitely, even if my car isn't having trouble starting. The experience was a great one. Booking is easy and their customer service is on the ball.read more

Absolutely top class service! My car wouldn't start and literally within 5 mins my car was up and running and they didn't even charge me for the service just for the diagnostic and it's been about a week now with no issues. This company genuinely cares about the service they give and they even followed up to see if everything went well. Im definitely going to be using this service again in the... future and I'm going to tell all my friends and family just how affordable, reliable and convienent the service they deliver is!read more

My wife’s car would start but stall at traffic lights. My best guess after checking battery and belts was that I’d require a new alternator. For the cost of a tow, the instamek mechanic diagnosed problem and got the car running. The technician Jack found a faulty sensor, cleaned the contacts and my wife is now happy once more. Very courteous and thorough service. No doubt I’ll be using them in... the future.read more
