Starter for chevy starcraft van 1992

Need to know where the starter is located on the van and how easy it is to get to, and do I get to it from the top or bottom. Don't have funds to get repaired by pro, and must do myself, (a woman 53 yrs old, and yes have put starters and such on before). Don't have funds to buy useless repair and parts book. Must get van fixed tomorrow so I can work Monday at 7 am or can lose job the only one this family has. Please Help if you have knowledge. Can't afford to lose our home because of no job, just because the starter went out witho no warning. YES NO warning. Yes its the starter. No grind, no whine, nothing when key is turned. Plenty of power from battery, etc. No jump would NOTHING when key is turned just silence. PLEASE HELP

    Thanks for your help S60. We're trying to figure what engine this has in it. I believe it's the V8 305. We're on our way to take the starter off now.

If you have a small block v8 (most common) the starter will be on the passenger side at the back of the engine where the exhaust pipe comes down from the engine first disconnect the neg cable on the battery. to remove the starter you will have to get under the van,there are two bolts that hold it on the engine (use a 9 socket) remove these two bolts and the starter will drop down,then remove the wires (note the location they came from as aftermarket starters have more terminals than you need) reverse these steps to re-install
this may help as well
hope this helps!.....thanks for choosing fix ya!

    yes the 305 and 350 are the most common for full size chevys both are v8s..........don't know why it didn't show properly but you need to use a 9/16 (nine sixteenths) socket in the starter bolts
    good luck!.....hope it works out for you!!!

2002 chevy van 2500 when i turn key to start van

Fuses only blow if-Old,Overheated or you have a Short circuit.
That should be any easy fix,to the extent that there aren't many 40 Amp Fuses and you will need a wiring diagram to follow the problem from the fuse to the cause. If you know what fuse it is, you can guess,but I wouldn't recommend that,it will be time consuming and maybe costly ,if you don't have a test procedure to follow and throw parts at it.
Don't replace the fuse.Their expensive and will keep blowing.

Starter replacement 1992 dodge caravan

The starter is located under the front on the car almost in the middle. Its shaped like a big cylinder with a smaller one attached to it. It has 3 big bolts that connect it to the undercarriage of the van itself and 2 smaller ones that connect it to the wires that run to the solenoid. One the bolts are removed it comes right off. I was surprised how easy it was. Its harder to put back on. Just reconnect the smaller bolts first.
