I have a 1997 4 cylinder automatic. I can not get the starter out. Battery wires are removed and two bolts from the bottom are removed. I try to pull the starter out and it wants to turn upward into the oil pan. I can't get it to turn down and come out?????

Alot of the time the line up dowels rust into the block. usually soaking where the starter meets the block with a rust penetrant and wiggling the starter around does the trick

Tip

Wrangler starter removal


Here's the step by step:

Disconnect the negative battery terminal.

Jack it up. You're going underneath so chock the wheels and use jack stands. Be safe.

Remove all wires from the solenoid.
Depending on your flexibility, it may be easier to drop the starter before removing the wires. If you do, don't let it hang by the wires.

On a 4.0, there is an oil cooler line bracket on the exhaust brace.
Remove it.

Remove all but one attaching bolts from the starter. Loosen the last one.

The starter is heavy, support it and pull the last bolt.

Slide the starter out of the mounting hole and lower it down.

While you're down there inspect the flywheel teeth for damage.

How to remove a starter in 1987 ford taurus?


Underneath the car, for a front wheel drive, it will be toward the front of the engine a long cylinder shaped part with another cylinder with wires going onto it. take the wires off first, paying close attention to their placement, then you remove the mounting bolts and pull it out, it's that easy dude, you can also find a video on how to do it on youtube.

How do i change a oil pan geskrt in a 94 jeep wrangler/


On most, you need to remove all bolts around the perimeter of the pan, (You may want to remove starter to get to fasteners there) then slide a paint scraper between the pan and block to break the seal. Generally there is enough room to get the pan out. If you need a bit more room, support the transmission with a jack (use a piece of plywood on top to avoid bending anything) remove both engine mount through bolts and raise engine slightly (not too much or you will break something)
