Question about 1992 Chevrolet K1500

1 Answer

I can't get Chevy K1500 starter removed to replace.

I am trying to replace the starter on my 1992 K1500 Silverado, but I am having trouble fully removing the starter. There doesn't seem to be any parts of the truck that can be realisticly removed temporaraly to make room for the starter to come out.

Maybe I'm not trying hard enough since I am working on it outside in -30F temps, but any tips would be appreciated.

Make sure all your wires are off. Push the starter forward, turn it to the right, and pull it down. It will come out. It don't seem like there's room, but there is. Good luck. PHil

I have a 1992 chevy 1500 p.u truck - it wont start its making a clicking sound but nothing is turning over. its not the battery we put a brand new one in and it still wont work. Any ideas?

The clicking is from your starter solenoid, trying to get the starter working. If your electrical connections to the starter are tight and clean, then the starter needs removing and testing.

Where is the starter located on a 1992 chevy 1500 4.3 liter v6...and how hard is it to replace???

hi, it is located on the passenger side of engine right at the transmission housing. It isnt that hard to do really. make ssure you have the unlock code for your factory radio is so equipped.. disconnect any battery terminal. you will see two 14mm bolt heads pointing to the ground within 3inches of each other. the starter looks like a cylinder with a smaller cylinder piggybacked on it. it will have a big cable to it from the battery. remove the nut holding that wire on it,be careful there is another wire there too and that gives power to the ignition switch. now remove the smaller nut holding the purple wire, now remove the two 14mm bolts I mentioned earlier and voila, starter is in your hand. instal by reverse and you are done.

1994 chevy k1500 4x4. won't even turn over. replaced starter, battery is fully charged. if i bypass the key switch and use a screw driver on the starter the starter works fine. is there an ignition relay...

Check the neutral safety switch, your vehicle should have it mounted on the steering colum. A purple wire runs to this switch from the starter and a yellow wire runs from the neutral switch to your ignition.

How do I replace the starter on my 1993 chevy?

Disconnect the negative cable from the battery..
Under the front end - find the starter near where the trani connects to the motor and the really big gear (flywheel) is..
Undo 2 bolts to remove the starter.. take the wires off and be sure to put the wires on the starter the same way..
Connect the wires to the new starter and put the starter in with the to bolts.. The starter will only go in one way so you cant mess up how it goes in..

Good luck !

Check your MAP and TP sensors. Your throttle body may be having trouble determining position and is compensating by adjusting RPMs.

My 92 chevy silverado a/c light is flashing and the a/c doesn't work now

if you know system for a fact has full charge, The low pressure switch will keep ac from engageing, thus shut the system back off. it is simple to replace it is on the reciever dryer under hood on passenger side a silver cylinder you will see a switch like plug on the dryer this is a common problem.and they just unscrew and usually have a valve underneath that keeps you from losing freon if you remove quickly.
