The starter under your hood can come from the Subaru factory remanufactured or new. It can go by another name, too. In fact, you've probably heard your share of them: cranking motor, starter motor, self-starter, and so on. Whatever type of starter your model has, how it works isn't too complex. All it does is rotate your engine using a dedicated motor and relay -- a process called "cranking." That's what gets your Subaru running. Remote starters do this via a smart key fob. All you need to do is push a button. When a starter won't turn over, though -- or won't start your vehicle reliably -- it's usually because it's going out or gone bad. Luckily, starter failure has some common causes, and they're easily recognizable. They include loose wires, dirty terminals, and rusted or damaged starter parts. The signs of starter problems are usually just as apparent. Can you start your Subaru? If you can't, that's one sign, even if your dash lights up anyway. If you can, but only in certain drive modes or gears, that's another sign. Maybe you tried jump-starting your engine after nothing happened. Did it work? If not, that's yet another sign. Of course, if your starter has begun smoking or it's covered in oil, you almost surely have starter issues. Install another OEM Subaru starter to resolve them.
