Starter Motor

Starter motor — On a rear wheel drive car or truck the starter is usually located under the car about the area of the driver’s feet. A front wheel drive usually locates the starter under the hood with the engine.

The battery supplies electricity to the starter to engage and spin over the engine. Once the ignition key is turned to the start position the starter drive gear is pushed out of the starter housing and the gear makes contact with and turns the flywheel inside the engine.
