1990 Nissan Pathfinder starter issues

I need to remove the starter from my pathfinder but have no idea how to do that. I can't tell where the wires connect to it. Can someone please guide me to where the wires are connected and how to take them off without killing my truck?

MAKE SURE YOU DISCONNECT THE BATTERY FIRST! The starter is mounted on the right lower side of the engine. If you have a 4X4 it will be much tougher to get to. The wire are mounted on the top on the starter. There is one small wire that simply clips on and then there is the big fat battery cable that is held on with a 12mm nut.

How do you take the starter out of a 1987 nissan pathfinder v6?


disconnect the negative cable from the battery, now disconnect the wires on the starter solenoid posts,, remove the two bolts that hold the starter in place ( bottom one first ),, pull starter off.
installing the starter is just the reverse of removal.

Where is the starter located on a 1990 Nissan Pathfinder FWD


The starter is located at the rear of the engine on the bottom left, There are 2 bolts and wires bolted on, remove the battery cable off the battery before going after the starter, that way way you don't short it out removing the wires in a tight spot. The starter is heavy and bulky, don't let it drop, hope this helps.

I have a 1990 Nissan Pathfinder. 3.0 Manual Transmission with an intermittant starting glitch. Starter/solonoid and ignition switch have both been replaced with no effect. I cannot seem to find the clutch...


The Clutch/Starter relay has a Blue Top and is located on the right inner fender near two other relays. It has quite large wires (12Ga.) and is often the culprit.

Changed the starter on 1990 pathfinder, may have crossed wires, which wire goes where on solinoid. Bratt


There should be wire from the solenoid to the starter, usually a black earth cable, one from solenoid to positive from battery, and one to the ignition(a signal wire) there really are only the two possible connections once you have the solenoid's earth connected to the starter. Good luck mate, hope that helps!

Replace starter


Your Starter is located on the bellhousing of the, or going into, transsmision (this is the part of the transmission that connects to the engine). The starter is mounted, either to the engine or bellhousing, by 2-3 bolts. You will have one RED cable (Positive) attached to the rear of the starter. This cable needs to be removed and it is a good idea to hang on to the hardware just incase the new one doesnt have any. You are not likely to find a black (Negitive/Ground) wire attached to the starter as it finds its ground through the Engine/Transmission, but if you do this is a redundent ground, remove it also. Remove the afformentioned 2-3 bolts that mount the starter, and remove the starter. Place the new starter in and place your mounting bolts back in. Reattache your wires and you are ready to start it!
