SOURCE: Changing front brake pads on a 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

I'm guessing you have disc brakes in the front of the Explorer. If so, you need to unscrew the two bolts that hold the caliper on.(they'll be either hex or allen bolts) If the caliper does not slide off, take a C=clanp and slowly back the piston down on the caliper. This should free up the caliper so that it can be removed. Make sure you grease the slider pins for the caliper when you reassenble.

SOURCE: how do I replace starter on 2001 Ford Explorer sport trac

Disconnect negative battery cable, remove starter bolts, pull starter out and down to remove connections. Pay attention to how they are situated. Attach connections to new starter exactly the same way, install, and re-connect your battery cable, and you should be off!

Wont turn over or star

check all fuses first.
what transmission>?
jumper cable starts, use them to start car.
this tells you more in 1 step than anything,
if jumper to other running car ,starts your car, that means
your battery is bad, or weak or discharged.
if jumper cables starts fail check out the tricks here.

Follow the positive battery cable. The end of it is attached to the starter. The starter spins the engine over by engaging the flywheel which is always on the rear end of an engine-between the engine and the transmission.
If your starter has what's called a "flat spot"- an internal defect- that little trick still works. If tapping it doesn't help, You will either need a voltmeter for testing the starting circuit, or take the starter off for testing. Parts stores will test them for free.

Having trouble replacing starter in my 2003 Honda CRV. Cannot remove the Starter Mounting Bolts, can barley access with fingertips. Is there a special tool or trick to removing the old starter?

imjustavg_1.gifNo there is not a trick, just very tight. If you aren't using a socket set with an extention it is almost impossible to get the bolts out though.

84 S10 blazer.2.8 running rough. Varajet 2 needs rebuild but running... stalled and no start. starter has had the overheat issue but has been fine in the cold weather. so no usual click or drag when turn...

The starter is a bit tricky to get out on the 2.8. It makes it a lot easier to get the starter off when you take the exhaust loose from the head. But be careful. The bolts have a tenancy to break off inside the head. The ignition switch would be something to look at if the starter is not clicking or making any noise. But an OE starter is not necessary. One from Autozone or any parts store is fine.

After a starter in a car starts to malfunction , is there a way to prolong it lfie with some trick of the trade , or replace it?

While starters do go out, it's the solenoids that get my attention first. Just a little copper plating missing from the contacts and it looks like a bad starter

That's my trick

Will not start not firing.

try hitting the starter motor with a spanner or get someone to do it when you turn the key. it might be stuck. it looks a bit like a mettal drum with fines on the back.
