There are just 2 bolts that hold the starter to the engine, then there is the battery cable and the starter solenoid leads, take note of where the wires go before removing them. Lets talk safety, use jack stands to hold the car up, disconnect the battery so you don't burn yourself or start an electrical fire.

Sounds like the brushes in the starter motor are worn out. When you strike the starter with a hammer, it jiggles the worn out brushes, allowing them to make better contact. Before replacing the starter, check that both the main starter cable and the smaller "trigger" wire have good, clean, tight connections. Otherwise, you need a new starter.

    • Remove the three bolts holding the starter to the engine. Turn the starter toward the engine and pull the starter out. The starter must be in the right position to get it past the motor mount. Work the starter down and out, then lay it aside. The starter has a core value you will get back when you return it to where you purchased it.
    • 4Work the new starter back up past the motor mount and put the starter in place. Be sure to line up the starter shim and replace all three bolts. You will need a socket and extension and a ratchet to replace the bolts.
    • 5Replace the two wires to the starter. Double check all bolts to ensure they are tight. Replace the heat shield around the starter. Jack up the vehicle and remove the jack stands from under the frame. Let the car down.
    • 6Clean both battery cable ends. Replace them on the battery and tighten with a wrench.

How to change starter, what all has to be removed?


Remove the plastic cover that covers the nose cone of the starter. Remove the wires from the starter. You may have to remove the oil filter. Remove the two bolts that hold the starter in place. Remove the starter.

Once you get under the vehicle it will all make sense.

How do I remove and replace a starter from a 1993 Toyota Previa? I am told it's rather difficult and may include removing something from the automatic transmission.


Removal & Installation
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. If equipped with 4WD, remove the front drive shaft.
  4. Remove the nut and disconnect the starter wire.
  5. Disconnect the starter connector.
  6. Remove the bolt holding the starter stay to the upper stiffener plate.
  7. If equipped with 2WD, remove the starter by removing the nut and three bolts.
  8. If equipped with 4WD, remove the starter by removing the nut, four bolts, and the center bracket.
To install:
  1. If equipped with 4WD, install the starter, the center support bracket, nut, and the four bolts.
  2. If equipped with 2WD, install the starter, nut and three bolts.
  3. Install the bolt to hold the starter stay to the upper stiffener plate. Tighten the bolt to 43 inch lbs. (5 Nm).

  5. Connect the starter wire with the nut. Tighten the nut to 78 inch lbs. (9 Nm).
  6. If equipped with 4WD, install the front drive shaft.

Good luck and this should take about 2 1/5 hours from start to finish and if you like, use lock tight medium strength to make sure the bolts don't go lose on you.

REPLACE STARTER ON 1995 CHEVY S-10PU 4.3 LTR


step1 Turn the truck off and disconnect the battery. Lift the car with a jack and place jack stands under the frame of the truck. Block the rear wheels to prevent the truck from rolling backwards. Step2 Locate the starter and remove the wires connected to it. Mark them so you know which is positive and which is negative so you can reconnect them accordingly. Step3 Remove the bolts holding the starter in place. There are usually two or three bolts holding the starter. Step4 Pull the starter out of its position and remove it from the truck. Some other parts may need to be loosened or removed for the starter to be removed from the truck. Remember what parts are removed or loosened. Step5 Put the new starter in the truck by installing it the same way the old starter was removed. Tighten the bolts slightly, connect the wires to the starter and then tighten the bolts completely. Step6 Replace any other parts in the truck that were removed or loosened. Lower the truck from the jack stands, remove the blocks from the rear wheelsmag-glass_10x10.gif and reconnect the battery. Start the car to make sure everything is working properly.

How can i replace my starter on a 1995 gmc jimmy?


Remove the 2 mounting bolts holding the starter in place and position it to where you can remove the wires going to it keeping in mind the locations of the wiring. You may have to turn and weasel the starter out. If it's a 4wd truck, you'll have to remove the engine mount bolts and raise the engine a little to remove the starter.
