CAN'T REMOVE STARTER chevy 1500 1994 v6

I removed the two bolts that hold the starter on, and disconnected the wires from the solenoid. The starter is completely loose, but I can't figure out how to get it out. It seems to be trapped by the frame, exhaust, oil pan, etc. It won't fit out of any of the holes. Any help?????

1988 Chevy Tahoe Starter going out. Need to replace


Generally starters have 2 or 3 bolts and a thick wire coming from the battery and other miscellaneous connections.

You did not specify a vehicle that was on my list, i.e. 1988 Chevy Tahoe.

However, it may be similar to a Suburban R10:
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION The following is a general procedure for all trucks covered in this manual, and may vary slightly depending on model and series.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable at the battery.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle.
  3. Disconnect and tag all wires at the solenoid terminal. NOTE: Reinstall all nuts as soon as they are removed, since the thread sizes are different.
  4. Remove the front bracket from the starter and the mounting bolts. On engines with a solenoid heat shield, remove the front bracket upper bolt and detach the bracket from the starter. Fig. 1: Starter mounting location — 4.8L engines 84903021.gif
    Fig. 2: Starter mounting location — 4.3L and 5.0L engines 84903022.gif
    Fig. 3: Starter mounts — 5.7L and 7.4L engines 84903023.gif

  5. Remove the front bracket bolt or nut. Lower the starter, front end first, then remove the unit from the truck. To install:
  6. Position the starter and tighten all bolts as follows: R/V Series:
    • Thru-bolts: 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm)
    • Bracket bolt: 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm)
    • Nut (gas): 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm)
    • Nut (diesel): 90 inch lbs. (10 Nm)
    C/K Series:
    • Thru-bolts: 35 ft. lbs. (45 Nm)
    • Bracket bolt (diesel): 24 ft. lbs. (33 Nm)
    • Nut (diesel): 75 inch lbs. (8.5 Nm)
  7. Reconnect all wires. Fig. 4: Disconnect the negative battery cable 87982p25.jpg

    Fig. 6: Remove the starter from the vehicle 87982p31.jpg

How to replace a 2005 chevy cavalier starter?


First disconnect the ground (-) post on your battery then you will need to raise your car off the ground high enough to get under it to remove the starter you do not need to lift the engine it has two bolts holding the starter to the engine they will be near the trans at the head of the starter .
Disconnect the wires with a 8mm wrench and a 13mm wrench then remove the bolts holding the starter.
It sounds like the solenoid has gone bad which is on the starter
once you have gotten the starter replaced go to your nearest chevy dealer there may be a open recall to have a relay installed in the wiring to your starter to prevent the solenoid from burning out again
Hope this helps you and good luck.

On 4WD Dakota models with the V6 engine, the starter is removed from above. On these models you will have to disconnect the steering gear and position the shaft out of the way to gain working clearance.
  1. Remove the starter attachment bolts and withdraw the starter from the engine flywheel housing. On some models with automatic transmissions, the oil cooler tube bracket will interfere with the starter removal. In this case, remove the starter attachment bolts, slide the cooler tube bracket off the stud, and then withdraw the starter.

Fig. 19: When detached, pull the starter away from the engine and remove it from the vehicle-2WD Dakota model shown

To install:

  1. Be sure that the starter and flywheel housing mating surfaces are free of dirt and oil to make a good electrical contact.

Fig. 20: Install the starter motor on the 4WD Dakota from above as shown
  1. Slide the starter in place, secure using the bolts and washers removed. Tighten the bolts to 50 ft. lbs. (68 Nm). Connect wires and battery cable end at the starter.
  2. If removed for clearance, reconnect the steering column shaft.
  3. Secure the oil cooler bracket if equipped. Connect the negative battery cable on the battery.
When tightening the mounting bolt and nut on the starter, hold the starter away from the engine for the correct alignment.

Diesel Engines

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise the truck and support it safely on jackstands.
  3. Disconnect and label the wires at the starter motor.
  4. Remove the attaching bolt, nut and washer, then lift the starter and solenoid assembly from the engine.
To install:
  1. Before installing the starter motor, be sure the mounting surface on the drive end housing and the flywheel housing are clean, to ensure good electrical contact.
  2. When tightening the attaching bolt and nut, hold the starter away from the engine to ensure the proper alignment. Tighten the bolts to 32 ft. lbs. (43 Nm).
  3. Attach the wiring at the starter. Tighten the solenoid connection to 44 inch lbs. (5 Nm). Tighten the battery cable at the starter motor to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
  4. Attach the negative battery cable.
SOLENOID REPLACEMENT
Chrysler Corp. for 1989-91 models did provide replaceable solenoids for the starter motors covered by this information. However since 1992, the manufacturer no longer recommends replacement of individual components, even if the later unit has the same part number of a formerly serviceable unit. Chrysler now simply calls for replacement of the entire starter assembly if the solenoid is found faulty.
