Removing the OLD STARTER;

First of all, if you go to an auto parts store they will give you a print out of the part of your engine where the starter is located. The first thing to do is unhook your battery. Then,, on your starter there will be a positive and a negative terminal. They must both be unhooked.There will be bolts in the starter, look to see what size socket it will take and then take all the bolts out of the starter that connects it to your engine. The old starter should now be off.

Installing the NEW STARTER:

Hold it up to where the old one was bolted on and make sure everything is allined. If it is then you are good to go. Bolt it up. Then reconnect the positive and negative terminals on the starter. If it doesn't allin, you will need to go to an auto parts store and purchase shims. You will know if it is allined by trying to start the engine. If it grinds or makes any noise then you need shims. If it doesn't then your new starter is installed. Good luck!

Well you picked one of the easy ones all you have is a couple of mounting bolts (depending on what engine you have) and one battery cable . just pull the bolts out and remove the starter. some times you need a pry bar to break it loose but make sue you have the bolts removed first.
good luck

Make sure the starter relay is working properly. Check to see if you are getting power at the relay + cable. Then check to see if you are getting power from the relay to the starter, you may have to turn on the ignition or get someone to turn the switch over in start position. If you're getting power here, then your problem is elsewhere. Are you getting the car to start or just no electrical such as lights and etc?

Ford F-150 1999 5.4 Liter. I changed starter now truck shakes!!!


if it didn't shake before the starter change,and the black marks were not there before,you need to see if the positive cable is getting hot to the touch,double check the large battery cables going to starter that they are on correctly ,dont go by color of wire ,visually follow each wire to starter to make sure its a ground or hot one,last possibility
would be a dead short in starter.

How do you change the starter


you will need some tools, 1\2" socket 6 point, NOT 12 point, with a 3" and 6" extension,and maybe a 1\2"deep well socket,and swivel,perferably 3\8 drive wratchet,a 9\16" socket for the battery cable at the starter but it could be 5\8" socket on some starters,,and depends on if the starter brace that hooks to the starter then to the engine is hooked up you will need a 3\8 socket.....you dont have to unhook the battery to do this,Fords use a solenoid on the fender that sends power to the starter.there will be i think 3 bolts that holds the starter on,so take them out,then unhook the brace to the engine,be careful the starter doesnt fall in your face,then unhook the big cable to get it out of your way,pull the starter down....reverse the process for installation....the exhaust cross over pipe and\or exhaust manifold may get in the way

Have your battery load tested first. If the battery is good then check the current draw on the starter. If the starter is pulling over 400 amps it is cooked and needs to be replaced. You might also the starter bendix before replacing the whole starter.

Starter is sticking


dont overlook the electrical portion of the ignition sys. its located on the steering colum just where it goes under the dash,there is a rod that the key portion pulls on to operate this.and they do go bad in fact ford recalled many of these for overheated circuits and vehicle fires. not trying to scare you just making you aware as far as the starter itself it could be and with the vehicle age I would replace as P.M good piece of mind for you. have a good day DB
