Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19817497A1] The method involves using a starter (4) with a rotor (5) which is coupled directly or through gears, to the engine crankshaft (2). When, or shortly after the ignition is switched off, a controller (11) operates the starter to set the crankshaft at an angle at which the cylinder compression offers least resistance when the engine is restarted. A sensor (12) monitors the crankshaft angle. An Independent claim is included for a system for starting an IC engine.
