One focus needed to keep your vehicle in top condition is to monitor the condition of your ignition. This involves understanding four specific signs that your ignition is in need of service.

First, if you experience a grinding noise when you turn your key, your drive gear likely is worn out of malfunctioning. Second, if you hear a whining noise, your starter gear and flywheel aren't connecting.

Third, if you see or smell smoke, you could have any number of engine issues. These include an electrical issue with your starter. Finally, if oil or another fluid is pooling in your engine, that may impact negatively your starter. Because of its typical location, pooling fluids can damage it.
