Ford OEM Starter Replacement
Whether it’s two times, three times or some other number, you’re familiar with how your vehicle works when you turn the key. When the number of times your engine turns over before it starts increases, you may be quick to blame it on chilly weather or another factor, but this can be a sign that your starter’s functionality is waning.
If things have gotten worse, you may find that your starter motor keeps going even after the engine has turned on. You may also hear a grinding noise when you turn your key or smell smoke. These are all symptoms of a failing starter.
What Does the Starter Do?
Unless you’re driving a Model T (in which case, excellent choice by the way!), chances are you haven’t had to get out and manually crank your engine to start the car. You have your starter to thank for this. The starter works by using electricity to kick-start your engine’s four-stroke ignition process.
When you turn your key and hear the whirr-whirr-whirr-whirr sound, what you’re hearing is the powerful gear inside the starter drawing power from the battery and turning the crankshaft on your engine. Because the engine is designed for maximum efficiency, the turning crankshaft works to operate timing, air flow and other important components.
It just needs a kick-start.
Once the engine begins to fire and combust, it takes over and turns the crankshaft through the natural combustion process.

You can see how far-reaching it can be for a starter to fail. Your car simply won’t start, and since most manufacturers (Ford included) don’t include a manual crank to override the process, if your starter is not functioning, you’re stuck.
