There are just 2 bolts that hold the starter to the engine, then there is the battery cable and the starter solenoid leads, take note of where the wires go before removing them. Lets talk safety, use jack stands to hold the car up, disconnect the battery so you don't burn yourself or start an electrical fire.

How to replace starter for 2001 Ford Explorer directions


Disconnect all cables connected to the input, including the ground wire to the stud starter, starter cable and connector valve. Remove the starter mounting bolts, starting with the upper bolts and insert them into the jar to preserve them for later. Then remove the starter motor. Place the new starter in place and install mounting screws. Tighten the mounting screw. Replace the nut on the starter cable to the port B of the solenoid. Tighten the nut between 80 to 123 inch-pounds (9 to 14 Nm). Close the additional wiring to the starter and replace the red cap.

try cleaning the battey cables first maybe the starter is working good, 15 years gives some rust to the cables, try with a wire brush, you could save some $$$$.

How do i replace the starter in a 1999 ford explorer?


Disconnect the negative battery cable. If it has automatic ride control, make sure it is turned off before you raise the vehicle. Remove the starter solenoid cover, if it has it. Disconnect the large cable from the starter motor and the solenoid connections. Remove the starter mounting bolt and nut and remove the starter from the engine. Reinstall in the reverse order.

Where is the starter located on 1994 ford explorer. is it easly accessable?


Hello gmboswell: My name is Roger and I will help. You will find the starter located on the passenger side of the motor. You will need a 13mm.socket and extension to remove the three bolts. Two are easy to see the third one is back between the starter and the oil pan. You will also need a 8mm wrench to remove the small solenoid wire. Really is not a very hard job.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the quality of the way I know the answer was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya.Roger

    HI, please refer to the guide below for thorough instruction on replacing your starter.

    Remove the Malfunctioning Starter Step1 Park your Ford Explorer on a level surface, activate the emergency brake and place blocks behind the back tires for safety. Disconnect the negative battery cable with a terminal puller. Raise the front end of the car with a jack for easier access to the starter. Step2 Grasp the plastic shell of the hard-shell connector at the S-terminal and pull straight off, without pulling the wire. If damage occurs, replace those items as well. Step3 Detach all wires connected to the starter, including the ground wire on the starter motor bolt stud, starter cable and the solenoid push-on connector. Some Ford Explorer starter motors have a self-threading bolt holding the starter cable in place. Step4 Remove the starter mounting bolts, starting with the upper bolt, and place them in the jar for safe keeping until later. Then remove the malfunctioning starter from the engine. Step5 Take your malfunctioning starter to the parts store with you. Aftermarket distributors remanufacture most of the starters they sell, so you can likely obtain a partial credit toward your new starter by exchanging your old one. Be sure that you take care not to damage the starter in transit, because the better condition it is in, the more you can get for it. Step6 Purchase a replacement starter that has the same or higher cranking capacity (power rating) as the original starter in your Ford Explorer. Also, match the bolt patterns, drive gears and electrical connections. Your owner's manual may list specifications or the auto parts technician will help you determine them. Download a free owner's manual at Ford Fleet. Install the New Starter Step1 Position the new starter in the correct location and install with the mounting bolts. Torque the mounting bolts between 15 to19 foot pounds (21 to 27 Nm). Step2 Push the solenoid connector straight on to the starter and listen for a click to be certain of proper installation. Step3 Attach starter cable nut to the B-terminal of the solenoid. Tighten the nut between 80 to 123 inch pounds (9 to 14 Nm). Reconnect the additional starter wiring and replace the red safety cap. Step4 Lower the vehicle to the ground and reconnect the negative battery cable. Disconnecting the battery cable may cause the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to lose information. After testing to make sure the vehicle starts, drive at least ten miles for the PCM to relearn its adaptive strategies.

    Please rate and god bless.
