SOURCE: Where are the starter bolts located? 1994 Olds Ciera S w/v6

Should be between the radiator and engine, underneath the car. There might be a plastic cover held on with 10mm bolts. The starter bolts go up thru the starter, into the block.

SOURCE: On a 2001 Town & Country, how do you

1. The Upper Bolt is easily accessed from the front of the vehicle going OVER the radiator. It is partially hidden by a black brace. There is a black ground wire going to where a nut(s) are located. This first nut will allow you to take off the ground connection, however the bolt has another nut further in (to the left) which is totally hidden. Remove this first nut.
2. After the first nut is off, remove the ground wire, then using a deep socket 15mm socket remove the second nut which is attached to the bolt.
3. Go under the vehicle to remove the wires from the Starter. The first wire is the positive cable (should be red) attached on the solenoid portion of the starter. That is a 13mm nut, Remove the nut and lock washer and detatch the wire. The second wire (single small gauge) goes to the solenoid and is connected using a slide lock - press release connection. It is difficult to see the slide lock and the press release located on the top side of the connection. Slide the red slide lock out and press the release, and pull out the connection straight out. Do not force it, or it may damage the connector. Note the placement of the bottom bolt position on the Starter. DO NOT remove the two (2) small, but long connector bolts on the wire connection end of the starter.
4. Remembering the noted postion: remove the lower 15mm bolt from the Starter. The bolt head is located on the back side of plate moving towards the left side of the Van. It is easily accessed from underneath in front of the transmission. Near the end of removing this bolt, support the starter or it will fall out.
5. Remove the Starter, noting the position of the starter. There should be a separate starter facing plate. If if didn't come down with the starter check up in the starter to flywheel opening and remove the plate.
6. Installation is Reverse of above. The facing plate is a little tricky getting it to stay in place. By starting with the bottom bolt it is easier, Make sure you continuously support the Starter in position to save crossthreading the bolt or starter. Hand tighten only the bottom bolt as youwnat to be able to turn the starter slightly to get the top bolt in.
Starter Bolts are tigthen to 35 ft-lbs.

How do you change engine mounts on a 2000 mustang v6?

It is safe to jack up the engine by using an old folded up beach towel or something to give similar cushion as to not bend the oil pan. Make certain that there is nothing holding the engine from being lifted freely, i.e. heater hoses, radiator hoses strut mount stiffener etc.

How do you remove the starter - 2004 Mustang V-6

I changed the starter on my 95 GT last week and it took a bit longer than expected for as simple as it is due to space constraints. The starter is mounted on the passenger side of the bell-housing. It's even with the back of the front tires. First, I removed one end of the support bar bolted on the bottom side of the frame (one bolt) and swung it out of the way for extra room. (You'll need all you can get.) Remove the two starter's two mounting bolts and reposition the it so that the solenoid pews. & neg posts are towards you. Remove these cables and then the starter should be free to remove it. You may take the old one in to the parts store where they can test it first, tho. Then, just reverse the process to install the new one.

2005 chevy cav wont start fast ticking sound. Starter ? do I have to jack the car up to get the starter out because I have no m anual for this car to find where the starter is located

the fast ticking sound you are refering to sounds like the solenoid on your starter motor. that's how they let you know they're faulty & yes will need to be replaced if you want your car to start. it's quick & easy to get at from under the car only. you will need to jack up the car or park over a garage pit. which ever method you choose, be safe, & block your vehicle. there are 2 bolts to remove. first, disconect the battery. now disconect the ''red'' + wire off the solenoid & the ignition wire plug. the bottom bolt is easy but the top bolt you will need a10'' long by 1/2'' drive extention on your ratchet to reach it & remove it. a gentle tap with a rubber hammer will do the trick.once down, you can now remove the solenoid, replace it, test the starter first, & now put it back in the same way it came out. by putting in the bottom bolt first, it will be easier to realine the starter motor into place. DO NOT over tighten the bolts or the + conection terminals. always tork if you can. reconnect battery & away you go. hope my experience helps.

Where is the starter located on a 2001 mustang

the starter is on the driver's side of the engine. There may be an oxygen sensor bracket in the way to accessing it. If so, remove the harness to the sensor using your hands and unbolt the bracket from the engine using the 3/8-inch ratchet and socket. if you have to follow the battery lead.

Trying to replace starter on 1994 mustang trouble is getting to top bolt

braz53190 is wrong, you either have the 3.8L V6, or the 5.0L V8. If you have the V8 you'll need a long extension for your ratchet, atleast 10in. I think the nut is a 1/2in, maybe 9/16. It should be about the same for the V6, I hope this helps.

Replace the starter on a 95sn mustang convertable

There are two bolts holding the factory starter/reducer onto the 5.0 block. The bottom bolt should be easily accessible from underneath while up on ramps/stands but the top bolt must be reached by feeding several long extensions through the front of the motor (by the pulleys) onto the top bolt. If you look down the passenger side by the header you will see the top bolt. You will have to take the intake piping off as well.
