Disconnect battery, locate starter wires [should be 3] make particular note of how wires are connected, then remove the two nuts that hold them in place, loosen and remove the two bolts keeping hold of starter to prevent it falling and remove starter. Replace new starter and it's two bolts, wires and nuts as previously hooked up, and then battery wire, and carank vehicle.
You should probably have it fixed. I have a 98' LeSabre and am wondering why the engine keeps blowing up. I have changed it 3 times now. Keep checking fluids and everything but still not having any luck. So i hope the help i gave helps you.
Check for dirty battery cable ends,and if this is o k,then replace the starter,tapping on the starter while trying to start the engine will confirm this solution.If the starter turns over and starts the car doing this,replace the starter.
Given the steps you have taken, only one of two things this can be is a resistive connection between the battery and the starter solenoid terminal. Or the battery itself has a bad internal connection. Bear in mind: you cannot crank the engine through the average set of jumper cables unless the battery in the dead vehicle will hold and deliver a good charge. Jumper cables are not really intended to start the car, they are for boosting the good, but low battery in the car being jumped.
Can I please have a bit more detailed description of exactly HOW it won't start does it not turn the engine over?
Does the egine turn over and just won't start?
Does the starter "click" or do nothing ?
