Customer Question
Well when I started...

Well when I started my 2010 Honda elemnt in made a grinding noise that sounded like the starter I went to start it for work this evening and made grinding noise then wont start

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

The noise has been going on couple weeks sounds like starter went out

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Element yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am not just want to try get it started to take to a shop

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I wanna know how to get it going start one more time so i don't have to get a tow truck

Ok what you could try but sounds like not going to work as it could be to far out. But will be worthy trying.
You need a second person to help . One in the drivers seat the other under the front hood with a small light hammer .
Drive should turn key to the start position and hold you tap lightly on the starter motor housing and the starter may catch and crank the engine ,
Good luck and I hope this works for you .
Need further advice with this issue then please get back to me if needed.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
