Does Parts Source test Starter Motor?

I'm in Toronto. Just wondering if anybody knows if they test them? Online always says go to your auto parts store but it's always in the US. I'm going to look to test it myself (have to get alligator clips for the jump first) but it would be good to know of a back-up place.

I don't think PartSource does starters anymore. You could look for a rebuild shop that does starters and alternators. I'm sure one of those would test it...

It's been a good decade+ since I worked at part source in Ottawa but none did anything beyond battery charging/load testing.

One location had a lathe to turn rotors but was non functioning. Unlikely you'll one in Toronto. Best way to find out is to ring them up.
