Hey donna88king, gotta love those starters :) actually I dont imagine you are doing anything wrong prvidind there is no thread damage, try thread the bolts first without the starter. If the starter is fitting and in place it will be just a matter of the right position there are a couple of ways to do this,first make certain that you are lined up with the hole using a screwdriver or an awl when you slide the bolt into place slightly move it in a circular motion to get by the taper if this doesnt help you try putting one bolt in the starter and lift into place using the bolt to feel the hole all that is required here is a little persistance hope this helps you good luck and take care let me know how you made out

1993 chevy suburban will not crank,won't click,won't turn over nothing?

If the battery is fully charged, try cleaning both terminals at the battery, as well as the positive terminal at the starter. Also clean the negative terminal where it bolts to the engine or frame.

So my 1993 chevy suburban won't start battery is good and starter is good I got a new ignition switch I got the old one out and I'm having trouble getting the rod to fit in the new one need some help in...

On Blazers, when you turn the key, it pulls the rod up and down. It is by where the tilt is. This rod usually has a bend in it so when you put the new rod in, you have to jiggle it a lot.

Can someone tell me if the doors , fenders, front seat from a 1995 Suburban Fit a 1993 chevy 2500 ext cab.?? thx for any helpu can give.

They should be a bolt on fit except possibly the rear doors. Measure the length of yours and then the Suburban to be sure they are the same length. Front doors should be the same. Be sure to watch for and count shims when you remove and re-install these parts so your body lines are lined up. Grab any that you can get from the donor truck so you have extra if you need them. Trace around the door hinges before you take them off so your have a reference point to put the new ones on. Hope this helps.

How do I replace the starter on my 1993 chevy?

Disconnect the negative cable from the battery..
Under the front end - find the starter near where the trani connects to the motor and the really big gear (flywheel) is..
Undo 2 bolts to remove the starter.. take the wires off and be sure to put the wires on the starter the same way..
Connect the wires to the new starter and put the starter in with the to bolts.. The starter will only go in one way so you cant mess up how it goes in..

Good luck !
