I am having difficulty removing the starter on my 1991 Chevy S-10 with a 4.3 liter V6. Cannot move it back far enough to tilt it down and remove. Any suggestions?

    I figured it out. Thanks. The flywheel cover must be dropped to remove the starter on this vehicle.

    On my 1990 I am having the same problem. Everything is blocking it. No clearance at all to drop it. Never seen such a thing!

I have got the starter diconnected from my 2005 5.7 jeep gc but I cant get it out to replace it


1. Disconnect and isolate negative battery cable.
2. Raise and support vehicle.
3. Note: If equipped with 4WD and certain transmissions, a support bracket is used between front axle and side of transmission. Remove 2 support bracket bolts at transmission. Pry support bracket slightly to gain access to lower starter mounting bolt.
4. Remove two mounting bolts (2).
5. Move starter motor towards front of vehicle far enough for nose of starter pinion housing to clear housing. Always support starter motor (1) during this process, do not let starter motor hang from wire harness.
6. Tilt nose downwards and lower starter motor far enough to access and remove nut that secures battery positive cable wire harness connector eyelet to solenoid battery terminal stud. Do not let starter motor hang from wire harness.
7. Remove battery positive cable wire harness connector eyelet from solenoid battery terminal stud.
8. Disconnect battery positive cable wire harness connector from solenoid terminal connector receptacle.
9. Remove starter motor.

How to remove and replace a starter on a 1995 Buick Century Custom, with a 3.1 Liter, V6 engine.


remove the negative battery cable, if you lie down in front of the car, you will see the starter on the front of the engine, has a couple of 15mm bolts holding it in. unplug it if its got a plug, and take the wire off... probably a 10mm. when you install the new one dont let the stud turn when you put the wire back on with the 10mm, if it turns you may as well go get another starter, just a little move wont hurt nothing, but if you move it far, save yourself some time and get another...bolt back in, plug wire in, reconnect battery cable, and your on your way.

How do i remove starter from 1996 Chevy blazer 4x4


You have to disconnect the motor mount on the right side of the vehicle, and jack the engine up as far as it will go. From there it leaves you just enough room to move it into a position to be removed. It can be done; I've done it a few times personally. I hope this helps you, and I wish you good luck with your repair.

Where is the starter on a 95 chevy s10


The starter is located on the bottom of the engine, passenger side where the transmission and engine meets up between the engine and frame. I am guessing you mean when you say S-10 to be the pick up.

On the 2.2 liter engine:
Jack the truck and place on supports and disconnect one of the batter cables so the power to the truck is dead. Begin by removing the transmission bell-housing support (there are two bolts and one nut. One bolt at the transmission and one bolt at the front of the engine and one nut back about 6 inches from the bolt) and remove the brace. Remove the driver side wheel. Push the rubber wheel well flap up into the engine compartment so that you can see into to engine compartment. You should see a heat shield that is in between the motor mount and the starter, remove it by taking the bolt out at the bottom of the shield on the frame (I believe its a 10 mm bolt). Pull out the heat shield by lifting it straight up and pulling towards you. From the front of the truck, you should be able to see the starter and see a nut that holds the starter to a bracket, remove this nut (8 mm nut). There is another one, but you won't be able to reach it at this time. Move back to the wheel well. You should see a bolt that holds the bracket on to the engine, remove this bolt (its either a 13 or 15 mm, I don't quite remember). You'll have to remove the battery cable from the solenoid, this can be done before or after the bracket bolt is removed, it doesn't really matter. Move to the transmission housing. Remove the inspection cover, there should be 2 bolts holding it on (10 mm bolts) and pull off the inspection cover. Now loosen the starter bolts, there are 2, one on each side of the starter (13 mm bolts). The one on the outside (driver side) may be slightly blocked by the exhaust pipe, but a wobble will work around it. (The manual tells you to remove the exhaust pipe, but I was able to do it without doing so, but you can if you have the ability, it will probably mean you can get the bracket off easier). With the bolts out of the starter (one is short, driver side, the other is long, passenger side) it should drop down and rest on the transmission bell housing, don't try to pull it out yet. Go to the front of the truck and see if you can remove the remaining bracket nut, hopefully you can see it now and remove it. The bracket should come off and remove it. Now go push the starter towards the front of the truck and pull down, it should come out. There is still one wire attached, so support it as you bring it down. The wire is attached to the solenoid by a 8 mm nut, remove it and take the starter out.

The new starter will have nuts for both the solenoid and bracket, remove them before re-installing. Re-installation is pretty much the reverse. Put the solenoid wire back on, push the starter up into the bell housing, push straight up then tilt to the front of the truck and rest in in the bell housing. Reach up and place front bracket on to the starter, I remember it was easiest from the front of the truck. Put both nuts on if you can that attaches the bracket to the starter, I ended up only putting the one on the top, the bottom was to difficult and not worth the trouble (this was the second starter I put on the truck, so it missing didn't cause any issues). Now go back and put the starter bolts back in and tighten. Move to the wheel well, re-attach the battery cable to the solenoid and re-attach the bracket to the engine with the bolt. Put the heat shield back on by pushing in and sliding down and re-installing the bolt. Replace the transmission inspection cover. Make sure to pull the rubber wheel well flap back and re-install the wheel. Put the engine/ transmission bell house support back in with the bolts and nut.

This is not an easy job, but can be done with minimal tools (a metric socket set and metric wrenches and several socket extensions (a wobble helps as well)) but is very frustrating. I've done it twice on this truck (truck has a total of 230K miles, the third starter was just installed due to solenoid failure, so it doesn't need to be done often). If you need more information, Keep me posted.

On the 4WD 4.3 liter V6
Start by disconnecting the negative battery cable.
On some 4WD vehicles, access to the starter is difficult due to the Skid plate and related hardware. This may or may not be the case with your vehicle, but be prepared to remove other parts if necessary.

There are two bolts that are installed vertically at the bottom of the starter near the bell housing cover. Remove them and hold the starter up while doing so. The starter should then drop down far enough to disconnect the wiring attached to the solenoid. It's best to do this through the wheel well. Note where the wires are removed from in order to reconnect them correctly.

Remove the starter and reverse the process to install the new one.

You may have to twist and/or reorient the starter to get it out and to replace it. Take your time and use your cell phone camera to take pictures to use as reference when re-installing the starter and connecting the wires. Good luck

How do you replace the starter on a 1999 Chevy S10 4 cylinder?


Hi,
Start by disconnecting the negative battery cable.
I don't know if your vehicle is 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive, but please note that on some 4WD vehicles, access to the starter is difficult due to the front driveshaft and/or related hardware. This may or may not be the case with your vehicle, but be prepared to remove other parts if necessary.
