    I was asked for more details ... 2000 volvo S80 T6 I was looking for a pdf of a diagram of where the starter is located... the answer I received was a little vague or maybe it's me... behind the front wheel configuration instead of in the front of the engine compartment.... any more detailed help is much appreciated/.... this is a good cause, I am just trying to help my friend whom is dealing with a very very sick 17 year old son, dying of cancer... she doesn't have much money thus my willingness to try and get this fixed before she has to go out and buy a new car.... good karma to all..... steven rinaldo toronto canada

    yes sorry about that but most engines have the starter motor at the back of a front wheel configeration ,very few cars have it at the front or top the older cars like ford escorts and rovers yes but the vast majority of modern cars its at the back ,i have just changed a renault espace starter and it took me about three hours just to get it off and please dont ask in the end i removed a piece of webbing on the block with a lump hammer to get it out and the right hand side drive shaft off as well .

    No sorry i do not have access to haynes manual to give a exact description and iam not a volvo dealer mechanic ,far from it in fact i just have a look then work out the best way to remove something which on this petrol version will be at the back of the engine other than that you will have to have a look to see for yourself and if you get stuck with anything do not hesitate to reply to this post and ask me and i will help anyway i can but iam general mechanic who tackles anything and everything from a car to a tractor and whatever else is inbetween .Before you change the starter motor have you checked the engine earth strap from the engine to the chassis as if this is dirty or broke it will make the starter turn over very slow and any cables of metal will get hot and maybe even smoke a bit .If i had my head under the bonnet i could soon tell you though but i just cannot remember everything i work on iam afraid .And yes i have done work on these cars before but a starter that i can remember off ,anyway best of british with it .

Why won't it start?


did you replace it with a new starter or a wrecker starter, maybe a bad starter. check the teeth on the flywheel they maybe damaged causing the starter not to engage. you may have to shim the starter. were there any shims when you pulled the original starter off.

Starter on my 91 ford ranger 4 wheel drive starts my pickup a couple time then it just spins have changed it 3 times now


Assuming the starter motor spins but doesn't engage to turn engine over to start you could have a bad starter drive which is part of the starter assembly or possibly damaged/missing teeth on flywheel ring gear. Depending on year and model vehicle, some starters you can replace just the starter drive otherwise you need to replace the whole starter. If you changed the starter look at the flywheel.

Starter needs replaced


STARTER PROBLEMS

It can be faulty starter or there is loose connection from battery to starter. The starter assembly gets power from battery. Check voltages at starter wires and see if you are getting 12 volts or not. If not then its no power issue due to low battery volt or no connection between battery to starter.

Starter location


Its in engine compartment under hood.
On the lower side.
First test the starter before directly replacing it.

Starter will not turn


Does the starter make one click when you turn the key to the start position? If so, your starter solenoid contacts are worn/burnt. You can either replace the starter (expensive), or remove the starter & have the contacts replaced (inexpensive); Starter contact replacements are a common repair item.
