Your Honda starter is a small electric motor that does a large job every time you start your vehicle, converting its electrical energy to mechanical energy to turn the engine and start the combustion process underway. The Honda starter draws energy from the battery to perform this function. The Honda starter turns the crankshaft of the engine for several revolutions to move the engine parts through the cycle necessary to start the combustion. It does this by powering a starter pinion gear that is designed to mesh with a ring gear in the engine flywheel. Most models of the Honda starter then use a gear reduction to increase the torque output that turns the crankshaft when the ignition switch is engaged. After the engine is started, the Honda starter motor turns off and is disengaged from the flywheel. The Honda starter is generally found at the rear of the engine, or at the front of the transmission bell housing depending upon the vehicle model. The Honda starter has a tough job to do when it is starting a cold engine, working against the forces of the internal friction produced in the engine before the oil is warm enough to properly lubricate the moving parts, caused by the piston rings and the pressure of combustion on the cylinders as the engine begins to turn.
