All of a sudden, your car won’t start! Is the culprit the battery, the starter, or the alternator? It could be that the battery doesn’t have enough charge to start your car. Or possibly, the alternator isn’t sending power to the battery. The smart thing to do is to head to your auto shop and ask for a thorough inspection to determine the cause and rule out other issues.

Let’s say that the battery and alternator have been ruled out. So just what are the signs of a bad car starter?

Wondering what are signs of a bad car starter? Many of the signs are the same for either alternators going bad or a weak car battery.

Did you know that the performance of your vehicle's wheel system is basically dependent on the condition of the CV (constant velocity) joints and axles? These components are involved in the steering, driving, and braking of the vehicle, linking the power from the engine to the wheels. They carry the whole weight of the vehicle, plus passengers and cargo. If undamaged, these joints can last up to 100,000 miles. Because the CV axle is constantly rotating and flexing to accommodate different road conditions, it can wear out and fail, resulting in a costly CV joint repair.

Can you drive a car with a broken axle? Without two operational axles, your car won’t be going much of anywhere. They’re what transfers power to the wheels from the transmission (in a front-wheel-drive setup) or the differential (in a rear-wheel-drive system). If one of your axles is broken, do not drive the car. It’s not safe.

Can you drive a car with a broken axle? If you’re experiencing axle problems, call your mechanic at Auto & Fleet Mechanic to schedule a cv joint repair.
