Question about Mitsubishi Pickup

1 Answer

Plain 1986 2.0L 4cyl. My 72year old neighbor took his starter out. I only removed the top bolt, as he couldn't fit his hand there. (I'm a 45 year old ex-female mechanic and have small hands.) He took the old wires off of the solonoid "in the blind." We know where the old wire is for the positive side to be reattached. We cannot find the old ground wire side (O connection) that is attached to what???? The firewall? Carb?, block?, frame? Please help me help this old man that can't afford anything else. Thanks.

On the starter solenoid where the large positive connection is,you should be able to locate a small threaded post,that is where the o connection you refer to goes to.

Remove a starter


  • Remove the negative and positive lead on the battery.
  • Locate the starter under the vehicle. The starter will be located to the right of the motor on the bottom. Access the bolts comfortably from underneath the truck.
  • Remove the bottom bolt with a socket wrench. The ground cable will be attached. Save the bolt for reinstalling the starter.
  • Unbolt the positive cable on top of the starter. Use a socket wrench to remove the bolt.
  • Unbolt the top of the starter with a socket wrench. The starter will be loose.
  • Pull the starter straight out. Use both hands to pull out and forward as the starter is heavy. Pull forward and lower to the ground.
Installing the Starter
  • Position the new starter in place. Match up the starter to the designated bolt holes on the mounts.
  • Start the top bolt. Turn the bolt clockwise but do not tighten the starter down.
  • Start the bottom bolt. Ensure the negative cable is run through the bolt before starting. Do not tighten the bolt.
  • Tighten the top bolt with the socket wrench. Tighten it snug. Repeat the same for the bottom bolt. Ensure both bolts are tight.
  • Tighten the positive cable to the starter. Ensure the cable is snug to the fitting.
  • Connect the terminals to the battery. Ensure the vehicle cranks. The starter will engage without hesitation if done correctly.

How to remove a starter from a 2003 expidition


Thank you for using Fixya.
Heres's the procedure on how to remove and install starter for your 03 Expedition. First remove the battery cables from the battery. Remove the electrical connections to the starter and label for replacement. There are 3 bolts - 13mm. The bottom bolt is also the ground terminal, therefore you will need a deep socket for that bolt. The other two are accessable ideally with about a 7" extension to your socket wrench. The top bolt is on the top of the starter and you could fit your hand up there to feel it and place the socket. The 3rd bolt is between the bottom and top bolts. Remove the 3 bolts and the starter falls right out.

All the best!

How do you replace the starter on a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo 4cyl 2WD?


Remove the battery earth cable. Engage parking brake and chock the wheels. The starter is on the lower rear left hand side of the engine. Remove the starter supply cable by undoing the 13mm nut on the rear of the solenoid. Unclip the start wire on the side of the solenoid by squeezing and then pulling the connector plug. Undo the mounting bolt on the top of the starter first. and remove. Then the bottom one. Doing it this way round will make it easier to undo the bolts by hand once loosened.
Pull the starter to the front of the car and remove.

I need to remove my starter on my 98 Diamante but I can not see all mounting bolts and I need to know where the bolts are located.


Hi, I am assuming you know where starter is. If you have found bottom bolt #14 metric socket which to reach you "must" use a medium length extention and go into it right above manifold pipe to reach it. I found if you take the guard off the starter 3 small hex head screws, it is much easier to get at all bolts (2). Whats strange is the lower bolt on starter mounts from the front and the "TOP" bolt #14 has to be reached from the rear of starter. You can not see the top bolt from bottom or top, but if you use your hand and reach up aroung the back of starter you can feel it! It took 2 of us one reaching up from bottom with just #14 deep well socket (no extention) on the rachet and feeling where to place it with rachet facing up, and person over top of engine reaching down helping to align socket on bolt, then use a piece of pipe or ? From the top place pipe extension on end of rachet and bolt will easily.
break loose. Good Luck it sounds hard but is fairly easy with right tools. kasheyboy77
