Question about 1992 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer

2 Answers

Starter Removal I Removed all the bolts and battery cable from my 1992 Chevrolet Blazer Tahoe Edition and cannot get the starter out. Not enough clearance. Any Suggestion? Vortec Engine 4.3 liter 4WD. Engine will turn over once or twice then quit. Sometimes hear whining noise when trying to start. Best guess is the starter. Battery is new and I also tried jumping.

I think you are right about the starter being the problem; the whining you hear is the starter free-wheeling after disengaging too early.
Getting clearance is another matter; I have, on occason, used floor jacks to move the engine temporarily without unbolting the motor mounts but that may be necessary in some cases. Sometimes, I have just had a helper use a 2X4 to shift an engine enough to gain a needed 1/2" of clearance.

How do you remove and replace a starter for a 1992 2.6L Isuzu Amigo?


1.The battery negative and more importantly positive cable must be disconnected.
2. There are 2 14mm bolts holding the starter in place, the upper bolt can be removed by leaning over into the engine compartment from under the hood with a socket and extension on a ratchet or a ratcheting wrench.
3. crawl under the front passenger wheel and remove the positive cable nut, remove positive cable from starter.
4. unclip the small ground wire attached to starter.
5. remove the lower starter bolt.
6. There is room on the bottom of the vehicle to wiggle the starter down to the floor and out from under the vehicle. There isn't enough room to get the starter out from the engine compartment up and out from under the hood.
7. installation of new starter is reverse of installation.

This procedure should work on any Isuzu Rodeo, Trooper, Amigo, or Honda Passport with a 2.6L 4 cylinder 4ZE1 engine

Changing starter


#1 Disconnect the battery
#2 Raise vehicle so you are able to slide under it. Use either jack stands or ramps
#3 Get under vehicle
#4 Disconnect battery cable from the solenoid by removing the nut holding it secure and then removing the cable itself
#5 Remove the wires going to the S terminal on the solenoid(remaining terminal.)This will have a smaller nut securing it.
#6 Remove the 2 bolts securing the starter to the engine block. Be careful as starters can be quite heavy!
#7 Installation is reverse of removal!

1988 Chevy Tahoe Starter going out. Need to replace


Generally starters have 2 or 3 bolts and a thick wire coming from the battery and other miscellaneous connections.

You did not specify a vehicle that was on my list, i.e. 1988 Chevy Tahoe.

However, it may be similar to a Suburban R10:
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION The following is a general procedure for all trucks covered in this manual, and may vary slightly depending on model and series.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable at the battery.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle.
  3. Disconnect and tag all wires at the solenoid terminal. NOTE: Reinstall all nuts as soon as they are removed, since the thread sizes are different.
  4. Remove the front bracket from the starter and the mounting bolts. On engines with a solenoid heat shield, remove the front bracket upper bolt and detach the bracket from the starter. Fig. 1: Starter mounting location — 4.8L engines 84903021.gif
    Fig. 2: Starter mounting location — 4.3L and 5.0L engines 84903022.gif
    Fig. 3: Starter mounts — 5.7L and 7.4L engines 84903023.gif

  5. Remove the front bracket bolt or nut. Lower the starter, front end first, then remove the unit from the truck. To install:
  6. Position the starter and tighten all bolts as follows: R/V Series:
    • Thru-bolts: 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm)
    • Bracket bolt: 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm)
    • Nut (gas): 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm)
    • Nut (diesel): 90 inch lbs. (10 Nm)
    C/K Series:
    • Thru-bolts: 35 ft. lbs. (45 Nm)
    • Bracket bolt (diesel): 24 ft. lbs. (33 Nm)
    • Nut (diesel): 75 inch lbs. (8.5 Nm)
  7. Reconnect all wires. Fig. 4: Disconnect the negative battery cable 87982p25.jpg

How to install starter on a 1992 buick lesabre ?


Hello Bellamy.
When removing starter, note if any shims are used between the starter and mounting surface. If shims are found, reinstall in original locations.If starter is noisy during cranking, remove one .015 inch double shim or add one .015 inch single shim to the outer bolt. If starter makes a high pitched whine after engine start, add .015 inch double shims until noise ceases.

Disconnect battery ground cable and raise and support vehicle. Remove starter braces, shields or other components that may hinder starter removal.
Support starter and remove mounting bolts.
Lower starter and disconnect solenoid wires and battery cable.
Remove starter from vehicle.
Reverse procedure to install.

There you are, remember to use safety glasses to keep your vision protected.
Use proper safety stands and wheel chocks to support the vehicle while under it.

Take care.

How do I change a starter in a 1989 5.2 liter dodge ram truck?


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Fig. 13: Disconnect the wires attached to the starter solenoid to facilitate removal
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.

Fig. 14: Unbolt the starter from the vehicle

  1. Remove the cable from the starter.

38a579f.jpg
Fig. 15: Once detached, remove the starter from the vehicle


04789a9.jpg
Fig. 16: Exploded view of the starter mounting-2.5L engine
  1. Disconnect the solenoid leads at their solenoid terminals. If necessary, tag then to avoid confusion when re-installing.
9796cc6.jpg
Fig. 17: Attach the starter wire connector to the terminals as shown-V6 and V8 engines


2e59350.jpg
Fig. 18: To remove the starter, unbolt the mounting hardware shown-V6 and V8 engines


On 4WD Dakota models with the V6 engine, the starter is removed from above. On these models you will have to disconnect the steering gear and position the shaft out of the way to gain working clearance.
  1. Remove the starter attachment bolts and withdraw the starter from the engine flywheel housing. On some models with automatic transmissions, the oil cooler tube bracket will interfere with the starter removal. In this case, remove the starter attachment bolts, slide the cooler tube bracket off the stud, and then withdraw the starter.
dc7317b.jpg
Fig. 19: When detached, pull the starter away from the engine and remove it from the vehicle-2WD Dakota model shown

To install:

  1. Be sure that the starter and flywheel housing mating surfaces are free of dirt and oil to make a good electrical contact.
1547e44.jpg
Fig. 20: Install the starter motor on the 4WD Dakota from above as shown
  1. Slide the starter in place, secure using the bolts and washers removed. Tighten the bolts to 50 ft. lbs. (68 Nm). Connect wires and battery cable end at the starter.
  2. If removed for clearance, reconnect the steering column shaft.
  3. Secure the oil cooler bracket if equipped. Connect the negative battery cable on the battery.
When tightening the mounting bolt and nut on the starter, hold the starter away from the engine for the correct alignment.

Diesel Engines

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise the truck and support it safely on jackstands.
  3. Disconnect and label the wires at the starter motor.
  4. Remove the attaching bolt, nut and washer, then lift the starter and solenoid assembly from the engine.
To install:
  1. Before installing the starter motor, be sure the mounting surface on the drive end housing and the flywheel housing are clean, to ensure good electrical contact.
  2. When tightening the attaching bolt and nut, hold the starter away from the engine to ensure the proper alignment. Tighten the bolts to 32 ft. lbs. (43 Nm).
  3. Attach the wiring at the starter. Tighten the solenoid connection to 44 inch lbs. (5 Nm). Tighten the battery cable at the starter motor to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
  4. Attach the negative battery cable.
SOLENOID REPLACEMENT
Chrysler Corp. for 1989-91 models did provide replaceable solenoids for the starter motors covered by this information. However since 1992, the manufacturer no longer recommends replacement of individual components, even if the later unit has the same part number of a formerly serviceable unit. Chrysler now simply calls for replacement of the entire starter assembly if the solenoid is found faulty.
