I would always suggest having a mechanic do things first and only try yourself if you think you can do it and you do not have the money for a mechanic that can give you a warranty.

Disconnect the battery cables in order to reduce the possibility of accidentally shocking yourself.

Remove the electrical connections from the side of the starter. There are usually two wires: a positive and a negative wire. Remove the positive wire first, and then remove the negative wire from the starter. You may want to mark the connections with a paint pen to help you correctly reconnect the connectors to their proper terminals. To remove the connections, you'll need to use an open face wrench or socket wrench to remove the bolts.
After both of the electrical connections are removed, you'll need to unbolt the starter from the chassis. Before you remove these bolts, take note of how the starter is oriented. You may want to mark the bolts with paint pens. There are usually only two or three bolts that attach the starter to the vehicle.

Remove the starter. In preparation, look closely at your car and determine what path will be easiest for removing the starter. It might be a tight fit, but you'll need to twist and pull the starter around various engine and frame parts in order to get it out of the car. Some cars may be particularly tight, especially those with front wheel drive. You may have to remove other parts in order to get enough space the pull the starter out. If you do remove engine parts, take care to remember their proper location. Replace bolts into the same place they came from once you pull a piece off. This will help you keep up with all of the pieces.

Once you've pulled the starter out, you can put the new starter in its place. You'll need to put it back in the exact same way you pulled the old starter out. Once you have it in place, put in a bolt just enough to hold the starter in place. Then connect the electrical connections beginning with the ground wire. Once the ground wire is connected, attach the rest of the wiring. Next, install the rest of the bolts holding the starter to the frame. Check to see that all bolts are tight.

I have an 88 mercury grand marquis sterted drove all day went the next day car wouldnt start someone told me timeing chain jumped replaced that replaced starter selinoid stater spark plugs router router...


Lets start at the beginning.
Did anybody check to see if the timing chain was really in need of replacing ?
Did you replace the starter and solenoid because it would not crank ?
Is it now getting spark to the plugs, and fuel to the injectors ?
Are the injectors getting voltage and a ground signal from the computer ?
Do the cylinders have proper compression ?
Is the rotor in the distributor turning when you crank the engine ?

My 1993 Dodge Caravan won't start. There's a clicking sound under the hood when I turn the key. I was told to reset the map sensor. Although, I don't know how. I put in a new starter yeste


Do not go back to any " mechanic" who told you to re-set the map sensor. Those are some baaad mechanics, giving you a schuck job. That is outrageous . If the clicking is coming from the relay and fuse center by the battery, you probably need a new $10 starter relay. If the clicking is coming from the starter solenoid on the new starter you put on, then it's not a bad part, but likely a loose connection at the battery, or at the starter where the big cable wire attaches. Are your battery cable connections corrosion-free and clean and tight? Did you happen to remove a ground wire and forgot to re-attach it? Check your battery ground, the negative cable where it attaches to the frame of the car, or to the engine. That should be clean and tight also. If the starter solenoid is clicking, it means that the starter is getting a signal from your ignition switch to turn the starter motor on, but the starter motor is not getting full battery power from the battery to start turning and thus cranking the engine. The starter motor gets its full battery power from the positive positive cable. One end is on the battery, and the other end is on the starter. If your battery is still charged up enough to start the car, all connections are tight, you have a new starter, and the solenoid just clicks, it may be a bad battery cable.
I will stop here, and wait for your response . Hope you find it, just keep looking. There is no such thing as re-set the map sensor, period.

Engine will not crank, and I've already replaced to terminals on the battery. Plenty of juice from the battery but no start


Very possible bad starter. Do you hear any clicking noise at the starter? You can try taking a long metal rod and smacking on the starter where the solenoid is while someone is trying to start the vehicle and see if the starter will engage at that time. Good luck.

Getting a clicking sound on my 93 mercury grand marquis car will start


I just had this problem. My mechanic found there was a male-female wiring connection to the starter which had gotten dirty over the years so there was a very poor connection and not enough current could reach the starter. He cut off the wire (probably like a 12 gauge wire; he showed me the part) and soldered on a replacement so dirt can no-longer accumulate and cause the same problem (if the starter goes I'll have to unsolder and resolder the wire, but not a big deal).

Check battery terminals, make sure they are clean and go have your battery checked, Autozone checks them for free. If they are good it's probably your starter or solenoid
