There is bushing type metal flang welded to the side of the frame right next to the starter and the top of it is kinda rounded over....what you need to do is take a torch and heat up the piece that is bent over and try to bend it straight up and down or farther back. then the starter can be removed wit less effort and with out having to remove the motor mount bolts and lifting the motor up.

It's easy, 2 9/16 bolts, remember to disconnect battery and make a note of the wiring on the starter.

How to remove a transmission with cable clutch on a 1999 sonoma pickup


The transmission is not at the right angle -not still in correct alignment with the engine. When removing it, it must be pulled straight back, and kept tilted at same angle as the engine, so the transmission input shaft clears the clutch disc and doesn't bind up there.

The starter in my 92 sonoma will not come out. after removing the two bolts holding it in place there is not enough clearence for it to come out of its housing


Depending on the motor there will be a sheet metal cover in between the motor and the trans. This is usually held in place by four bolts that thread into the transmission. There is also usually a couple of support braces that run from the engine to two of those bolts, again depending on the motor. Those braces and the sheet metal cover will need to be removed. The starter will then drop out.

Replacing starter for gmc sonoma


You will need to remove the motor mounts and jack up the engine and remove the passenger side tire to be able to get it out. the starter is only 2 bolts. Not hard just time consuming. Disconnect the battery before starting the process. The bolts on the starter are easily accessable you will have to raise engine to be able to get it out.

Good Luck.
