How installation a starter in biuck regal ls 1999


Make sure your battery is disconnected. On the starter, remove the wires, and the stay bracket, if any, on the front of starter. Underneath car, there is a plastic shield held on by two bolts or screws. Use a 10 mm wrench and remove the plastic shield. Use a 15 mm socket to remove the starter bolts. There are two that hold starter from the bottom. In other words, bolts are mounted from the bottom, and go up into the block. Once you have it free, you may need to use some ingenuity to turn, position it for removing from that small space to bring it out from car. New one goes in same way. If there is a shim between starter and block mating surface, be sure and use it with new starter.

Need directions on how to change the starter on a 1994 cadillac deville


On a 4.9 v8 this is relatively simple

Step 1.... Before you get under the car, Disconnect the battery and look for the metal shield. The best way to find it is to follow the red (power) cable from the battery. It goes straight to the starer. You want to take out the metal shield, but you will only be able to take out the only accessable nut from the sheild from the top. The other will be from below (later). Take out the 1st connector/nut holding the shield. This should be located by the radiator...you will see the metal shield is protecting the wiring from burning on the exhaust manifold.

Step 2...Then raise the car on the lift, take off the long / wide plastic shield under the radiator (allowing manuverability and you to see what you are doing). Then remove second plastic shield covering the starter.

Step 3...This will allow you to take out the 2nd bolt holding the metal shield (from step 1) protecting the wiring harness.

Step 4...Then you will be able to unfasten the wiring and bolts to remove the starter.

Step 5...Replace with the new starter, reconnect everything and bolt it ,etc. Dont forget to put all the sheilds back in place and make sure the wiring harnesses dont touch the exhaust manifold.

Step 6...Lastly, lower the vehicle, raise the hood and dont forget the nut on the metal shield !

Step 7...Reconnect the Battery

Step 8...START YOUR ENGINE!!! YAY!!!

I want to replace the spark plugs and wires on my 03 impala 3.8l. There is a heat shield on th eplug. Can this shield be removed? is there a special tool to remove the wires?


The heat shield on the plug wires are there to keep the heat off the wires.I believe they are only on the rear ones.Yes they do come off.They need to be installed on the new ones.There are some special pliers that are for removing the wires but sometimes they ruin the wires.The best way to remove the plug wires is to grab and twist back and forth and out.What happens is the rubber part kind of sticks on the porcelin part of the plug and you have to twist it to break it loose.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Does a heat sheild of some type go on the starter. Seems if starter gets to hot the truck will no longer start and will have o wait for cool down before starting the vehicle again?


Sounds like the starter is going bad.1) You can fabricate a shield yourself out of tin or thin sheet metal. Make sure you do not come in contact with the positive wire going to the starter when installing. 2) you can replace the starter -recommended- then add a shield to prolong the life of your new starter.

Install new starter


What makes you think the starter is bad first? Could be just the solenoid, a dirty bendix, allot of issues possible.

I assume you need a step by step......

Regardless if it is the 2.8L/3.1L or 3800 engine:
  1. Remove Postive Battery cable.
  2. Jack vehicle up and secure safely
  3. Remove plastic or Tin shield surrounding starter (start is located at very front of engine accesible from underneath tucked close to oil pan) The shield more than likely has 10mm bolts holding it to the transmisson (if still present)
  4. Remove the 8mm bolt at the starter solenoid it should be a purple wire
  5. Remove the 13mm or 15mm nut on the back of the starter solenoid with the 4gauge wire that runs to the battery there will be 2 or 3 other wires that are on this same post. Make sure they ALL go back on, and that the battery cable goes on first with the install of starter.
  6. Remove the two 15mm bolts that run vertically. Note if any shims are present, re use them.
  7. Rinse and repeat to install new starter, I would put some contact or di-electric grease on all your connections to insure good connections down the road.
