    Starters are actually a pretty simple fix assuming that you can get under the vehicle. Is this a possibility?

How to replace starter

You don't have to be very mechanically inclined to do this. You basically remove the old starter (at which time I usually take it to the auto store and have it tested) and then replace it with a new one. Watch this video on

How to step by step guide on replacing starter in 1993 ford jeep wrangler yj 4x4

well im not sure that the Ford part is.. but on your YJ its pretty simple, 1.disconnect the battery 2,disconnect the power leads to the cylanoid (its mounted to the top side of the started) 3.remove the starter mount bolts and slide the started our of the transmission Note: sometimes its necessary to remove the mount bolts and and remove the starter from the transmission in order to gain good access to the power wires. you can either have a partner hold the starter for you once its loose or use a bungee cord to tie it up while you disconnect it. 4. installation is reverse or removal Note: on re-manufactured starters it may be necessary to shim the starter. if after installation it grinds on the flywheel then you know it needs to be shimmed, most re-mans will come with a set of shims. hope this helps, and for the record most men who think they know alot about cars or talk like they do dont know jack diddly. i know a couple women who are fantastic mechanics.

How do you remove the starter from a 1995 Isuzu Trooper? I need to know EXACTLY how to do it. I know it is on the drivers side of the engine, but still cannot even see it to remove it. Am I missing...

First, make sure you really need a new starter. Please see my tip at . Let me know if you have more questions.

Are you looking from under the car? Here is a picture of where the starter should be:


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle on jackstands.
  3. Label and disconnect the battery and starter control wires from the starter.
  4. If equipped, remove the starter bracket and/or heat shield.
  5. Remove the starter-to-engine mounting bolts.
  6. Lower the starter from the engine. If any shims are present, keep them for reinstallation purposes.

To install:
  1. Install the starter and shims, if equipped, to the engine. Tighten the mounting bolts to 30-34 ft. lbs. (39-44 Nm).
  2. Install the starter bracket and/or heat shield, if equipped.
  3. Reconnect the electrical connectors to the starter.
  4. Lower the vehicle.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.
  6. Start the vehicle to make sure the starter functions correctly.

How do i pull off the starter on my 1991 pathfinder and can you provide pictures if needed

I copied this directly out of my manual. Don't know how to get you a picture.

Starter removal:

1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery. On models equipped with a V6 engine, raise the vehicle and support it on jackstands.

2. Remove the wires from the starter solenoid. Label the wires and terminals to prevent confusion during installation.

3. Remove the starter motor mounting bolts.

4. Lift out the starter motor and solenoid.
5. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

Replacing lower ball joint-GMC JImmy

is this a 4 wd drive unit or 2wd unit? are you mechanically inclined and have basic common tools including a jack and jackstands? if you live close to pep-boys auto center then you can take it there you will spend about 200-300 to do the job, just ask them for a qoute first and that hopefully is still free. they have a special coupon on there wbsite right now that will save you some money, plus if you are over 55 or student in school you can also save money there. i was a service manager there for a while... let me know what you want to do they are not super hard to do but can give you a headache if you dont have a grinder or chisel. i can walk you through it though if you still wish, im all for the do it yourselfer.

Replace starter

Your Starter is located on the bellhousing of the, or going into, transsmision (this is the part of the transmission that connects to the engine). The starter is mounted, either to the engine or bellhousing, by 2-3 bolts. You will have one RED cable (Positive) attached to the rear of the starter. This cable needs to be removed and it is a good idea to hang on to the hardware just incase the new one doesnt have any. You are not likely to find a black (Negitive/Ground) wire attached to the starter as it finds its ground through the Engine/Transmission, but if you do this is a redundent ground, remove it also. Remove the afformentioned 2-3 bolts that mount the starter, and remove the starter. Place the new starter in and place your mounting bolts back in. Reattache your wires and you are ready to start it!
