Question about 1995 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

How hard is it to replace the starter on a 1995 Altima?

I located the starter under the engine to the left of the oil filter. Access from underneath looks like a real bear. I know you can access the mounting bolts from the top if you remove the air intake but the starter itself is accessible only from the underside.

My concern is being able to get the new one in place from underneath. I don't want to get the old one out and not be able to get the new one installed.

Anyone out there have any pearls of wisom/experience they can share?

Thx

    Yes please.  My major concern is ease of access to the starter under the engine.  I would like to hear from someone who has actually changed a starter and let me if I can get at the darn thing with relative ease while it is on ramps.  It looks like a real bear to access and I don't want to get the old starter out and not be able the new one in place. 


    Thanks

Well i dont think you would have to much of a problem with this one. you would have to access it from the bottem of car where you would have more room to work. you said you can access the mounting bolts. wheather from the top or bottem which ever is easier. only other thing is to disconnect the wiring harness. the new one will go in the same way the old one came out and just as easy. it may be a tight fit, but you can wiggle it around and line it up without hurting it. and to anwser your question about the access under the car here is a link with pictures of the under side of the car and starter. hope this info helps, comment back if you have a question. and trust me, its easier than it looks, if you dont mind getting dirty and have the patience :-)

Wheres the oil filter located


Hello,

It will be on the lower left rear side of the engine next to the oil pan. You will have to crawl under to see it.
I found out the oil filter is located under a splash cover right behind the bumper,It says "oil filter access panel.

Take care.

Oil change


First, you will need to get underneath the truck and locate the oil pan. Turn and remove the bolt on the oil pan to release the oil (use a container to catch the old oil) Now, climb underneath the driver's side of the vehicle, beneath the engine, and locate the oil filter. The filter is a cylinder approximately six inches in length which extends from the side of the engine. Remove the oil filter and then replace it with a brand new one. After all of the oil has drained out, tighten the bolt and the locate the oil cap and remove it. Now add five quarts of oil into the engine

You have to raise the vehicle. Depending on the engine type, the starter/solenoid assembly may be mounted above the transaxle, or below the intake manifold. If you don't have any problems, it shouldn't take more than an hour.

Go to your nearest auto parts store and buy a Chilton or Haynes book for guidance. Best $20 you'll be glad you spent.

Have to get it up on jacks or ramps. If you are looking at the motor it is on the left side on the bottom, sticking straight down.
