Remove starter 2003 chev 1500 pickup 5.3 engine

ark your Chevy Avalanche on a level surface, activate the emergency brake and place blocks behind the back tires for safety. Disconnect the negative battery cable with a terminal puller. Raise the front end of the car with a jack for easier access to the starter.

  • 2 Remove the positive battery cable nut and the engine harness ground nut. Disconnect the positive battery cable and ground wire from the solenoid.
  • 3 Unscrew and remove the starter mounting bolts. Place all nuts and bolts in a safe place to prevent loss, such as a baby food jar.
  • 4 Detach the heat shield if necessary. Remove the starter from the vehicle.
  • 5 Take your malfunctioning starter to the parts store with you. Aftermarket distributors remanufacture most of the starters they sell, so you can likely obtain a partial credit toward your new starter by exchanging your old one. Be sure that you take care not to damage the starter in transit, because the better condition it is in, the more you can get for it.
  • 6 Purchase a replacement starter that has the same or higher cranking capacity (power rating) as the original starter. Also, match the bolt patterns, drive gears and electrical connections. Your owner's manual may list specifications or the auto parts technician will help you determine them. Download a free owner's manual by registering with the Chevy Owner Center (see Resources).
  • 7 Install the new starter motor by reversing the removal process. Tighten the heat shield nut to 44 inch pounds (five Nm) and the bolt to 35 inch pounds (three Nm).
  • 8 Torque the starter mounting bolts to 37 foot pounds (50 Nm). Tighten the ground wire retaining nut to 30 inch pounds (3.4 Nm) and the positive battery cable retaining nut to 80 inch pounds (nine Nm).
  • 9 Lower your Avalanche back to the ground. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Turn the key in the ignition to see if your new starter motor functions correctly.

    Only thing that would click, is bad sylonoid, starter, or battery. But as you said, you changed all that is mentioned. Yes if engine is seized, like a rod barring, or main barring, then that's a whole nother issue. But assuming all you checked is good, then only other thing I can even tell you based on the click on starter, is there is a ground problem, try by passing, and arking on starter from positive to negative with rubber handed end pliers to see if you are getting spark, as well as if starter turns and how much. Let me know if I have helped , I wish I had more symptoms, like when this happened, what made you replace all, what was original sypmtom to have you place all items mentioned . Let me know, thanks mike

    Starter continues to run, after starting and even when keys are removed


    Can be 2 thingfs, firstly the solinoid sounds like it is shot so most likely you will have to replace it, this is just one part of the starter motor and can often be reconditioned to save you a few $$$, I would however try and get to the starter ensure no wires are arking out on anything and that the connections to the starter are good, spray with wd-40 and hit it a few times with a hammer, if the problem persists after this then it will need a new selinoid.

    th other possibility is the ignituion switch where you put the key in, internally then can jam up thus not releasing the power that is sent to the starter motor, again wd-40 sprayed into the ignition barrel would normally free this up. I would certainly try these before spending any money.

    Hope this helps

    No power when turning the key jump start it while running the starter will engage all on its own

    Sounds like either the ignition switch is stuck in the on position, remove the switch and WD40 it.

    If not then the starter could be arking out on something maybe a corroded wire or again the starter could be stuck.

    Hope this helps

    Randomly dont start. if i tap on starter it will start up. have had starter replaced 2 times but still happens even if i touch starter with a metal object its arks and starts right up its a 2007 its...

    seems that the starter is getting heat soaked, or is some how absorbing voltage. very wierd. I would go over all your grounds and get a new starter installed, but ask to see the old one

    93 jeep cherokee , iv got spark at the coil but not at the plug just replced cap, roter, wires, but still notheing got any ides ?

    Coil may be producing low voltage (KVs) to where it makes enough energy to snap out of the coil tower but then supressed as it travels down the high tension leads finally to the plug. Incidentally spark plug leads should have about 10k ohms of resistance per foot.I good coil will jump spark at least a half inch if you pull the wire off the cap and produce this much air gap

    Took out starter ,forgot to undo battery had an ark,no power to

    Cordstumer, If you have not already been advised by some one, you probly fryed the fuseable link from the starter to the ignition. They dont much like being shorted out, but they do protect the rest of the circuts. Rgey are faily easy to replace and not a lot of money. Good Luck and happy motoring

    95 jeep cherokee not starting

    Check the small wire on the starter to see if you are getting 12v there with the key turned. If you are, then it is possible that the starter (&or solenoid) that checked out good last year is not good now. If no power at small wire, then check neutral safety switch.
