Selftest Answers

For the preceding self-test on The Starting System, the following best complete the sentence or answer the question. In cases where you may disagree with the choice - or may simply want to reinforce your understanding - please review the appropriate workbook page or pages noted.

1 . "C" - The starting system has two separate electrical circuits ... a control circuit and a motor circuit. (Page 1.)

2. "B" - If the transmission is in gear, the control circuit between the ignition switch and starter magnetic switch is interrupted by the neutral start switch. (Page 2.)

3. "B" - Unlike in the conventional starter, the magnetic switch plunger acts directly on the pinion gear (not through a drive lever) to push the gear into mesh with the ring gear. (Page 4.)

4. "C" - An over-running clutch disengages the pinion gear and prevents damage to the starter motor when the engine starts. (Page 7.)

5. "A" - If the engine cranks too slow to start, the cause may be a discharged battery, loose or corroded connections, a faulty starter, or engine problems such as the wrong oil. (Page 8.)

6. "B" - If the starter motor spins, but the engine will not crank, check the over-running clutch. (Page 8.)

7. "A" - Low current draw, with a low cranking speed and high cranking voltage, usually indicates excessive resistance in the starting circuit. (Page 10.)

8. "D" - High current draw, with a low cranking speed, usually indicates a faulty starter or engine problems such as the wrong oil or ignition timing. (Page 10.)

9. "B" - With the voltmeter leads connected between the battery (+) terminal and the motor "C" terminal, a reading of more than 0.5 volt indicates excessive resistance (in the motor circuit). (Page 11.)

10. "C" - With the voltmeter leads connected between the battery (-) terminal and the motor housing, a reading of more than 0.2 volt indicates excessive resistance (in the motor ground circuit). (Page 12.)
