How to remove and install a starter motor

It is impossible to provide a suggested diagnosis without knowing the YEAR, MAKE, and MODEL of your vehicle.
Beyond that, your question is far too vague.
Replacing a starter on MOST (not all) vehicles is a fairly straightforward procedure. It generally entails disconnecting the battery negative terminal, removing the sires from the starter, supporting the starter while removing two to four bolts, pulling the starter, then reversing the procedure to install the new starter installing starter shims to accommodate for any misalignment of the new starter.

Installing the starter

  • If your testing indicates that the starter must be removed, the first step is to disconnect the negative cable at the battery.
  • It may be necessary to place the vehicle on a lift to gain access to the starter. Before lifting the vehicle, disconnect all wires, fasteners, and so on that can be reached from under the hood.
  • Disconnect the wires leading to the solenoid terminals.
  • To avoid confusion when reinstalling the starter, it is wise to mark the wires so they can be reinstalled on their correct terminals.
  • On some vehicles you may need to disconnect the exhaust system to be able to remove the starter.
  • Loosen the starter mounting bolts and remove all but one.
  • Support the starter while removing the remaining bolt.
  • Then pull the starter out and away from the flywheel.
  • Once the starter is free, remove the last bolt and the starter.
  • Once the starter is out, inspect the starter drive pinion gear and the flywheel ring gear.

  • When the teeth of the starter drive are abnormally worn, make sure you inspect the entire circumference of the flywheel.
  • If the starter drive or the flywheel ring gear show signs of wear or damage, they must be replaced.
  • Reverse the procedure to install the starter.
  • Make sure all electrical connections are tight.
  • If you are installing a new or remanufactured starter, sand away the paint at the mounting point before installing it. Also, make sure you have a good hold on the starter while installing it.
  • Many General Motors' starters use shims between the starter and the mounting pad.

  • To check this clearance, install the starter and insert a flat blade screwdriver into the access slot on the side of the drive housing. Pry the drive pinion gear into the engaged position.
  • Use a wire feeler gauge or a piece of 0.020-inch (0.5080-mm) diameter wire to check the clearance between the gears.
f17-28.gif Checking the clearance between the pinion gear and the ring gear.
  • If the clearance between the two gears is incorrect, shims will need to be added or subtracted to bring the clearance within specs.
  • If the clearance is excessive, the starter will produce a high-pitched whine while it is cranking the engine.
  • If the clearance is too small, the starter will make a high-pitched whine after the engine starts and the ignition switch is returned to the RUN position.
  • Every starter should be bench tested after it is removed and before it is installed. to conduct a free speed or load test on a starter, see the free speed test

How long should it take to install a starter in a 2002 ford excursion?

If you do not have any trouble with removal and installation, it should take about 30 minutes. Sometimes the new starter will have slightly different dimensions and can be a tight situation to connect the wires and can increase the installation time. Hopefully, this will help you to FixYa problem!

Startup problems, at first no clicking or nothing 3rd time engine turned over but there was a high pitch wining i think from the starter itself pls help, Chef KB

It sounds like the starter solenoid has gone bad, Best thing to do is just to replace the whole starter. The starter solenoid is mounted on the starter, but to go through all that trouble to remove the starter, might as well replace the whole thing. Auto Zone carries the starter for your car and can give you the step by step instructions to get the job done with common tools. Good luck and when removing the old starter, take pictures with your cell phone to reference the wires when re-installing the new starter.

How to replace the starter for a 95 buick lesabre

Be sure to disconnect the battery first. There are HOT wires connected to the starter. Disconnect three wires and two mounting bolts. It can be difficult to reach a wrench in there.

The new starter will come with shims, thin strips of metal. These are for getting the right distance between the starter gear and the flywheel. Hopefully you won't need them. But if the new starter is noisy when mounted, shim it some.
