WHY WON'T MY CAR START? OUR TOP 4 REASONS

December 27, 2019

For the past few weeks the team at Stouch Auto and Mechanical have received a spike in the number of enquiries relating to cars being unable to start. From Ipswich to South Brisbane, motorists have been stranded at shopping centres, places of work or even at home, causing delays and inconvenience during the frantic holiday season. Gathering information from each callout, we've compiled a list of the top 4 reasons why your car won't start:

1. Dead Battery

One of our clients in Holland Park recently rang us after they spent 4 weeks away on holiday. Prior to leaving, the car owner failed to disconnect their car battery. To no surprise, the car owner experienced difficulty starting their car upon their return thanks to a flat battery. We were able to arrive on-site within the day and replace the car battery.

2. Bad Alternator

A client in Oxley rang after the "ALT" light appeared on their car dashboard. This was indicative of an alternator that required replacement. Bad alternators, or starting motors, may prevent your car from starting properly.

3. Clogged Fuel Filter

Clogged fuel filters prevent the easy passage of fuel to the engine. Where clogs in fuel filters are apparent, a replacement fuel filter is normally in order. Best to contact your mobile mechanic to tend to this issue as soon as possible.

4. Cracked Distributor Cap

Broken or cracked distributor caps normally occur as a consequence of moisture being trapped under the cap. Some simple maintenance may be required to dry the affected area but a cap replacement will be required.

If you find yourself stranded and asking "why won't my car start?", contact Queensland's fastest growing mobile mechanic team at Stouch Auto and Mechanical. We will travel to your place of work or residence, diagnose the issue and carry out repairs onsite. Contact Stouch Auto and Mechanical today on 1300 568 603 for prompt mobile mechanical care.
