96 Chevy S-10 starter problems

Removed old starter (original). Difficult. Installing new starter is proving next to impossible. The book mentions removing the bracket to the engine mount bolt, but I can't seem to identify it.Any suggestions?

Just did this, take the long bolt out of the passenger side engine mount, loosen the two transmission mount bolts and jack the right side of oil pan slowly, when you do this there will be enough clearance between the bell housing and frame, be sure to use a jack stand to be safe.
Put the starter motor in the space with the selonoid up and wiggle forward into position then insert bolts and hook up connections. Let the motor down, put the motor mount bolt back in, tighten transmission mount.

1996 Nissan pickup. Replaced starter/flywheel. Starter still grinds. Will not start. Manual standard truck.

If the Bendix arm of the starter is not meshing properly with the teeth of the flywheel, you may have improperly installed the flywheel; you may have the wrong starter or is always best, when removing parts from a car to visually match the new one up to the old part, side-by-side. Any deviation in design of the replacement part to the original will not work.
The other possibility is you either forgot to place the original spacers (if there were any) of the old starter onto the new one; or as you mentioned in your post... you will have to add shims.
You never mentioned whether the parts were bought through a 3rd party vendor (auto parts store) or if they are genuine Nissan parts obtained through the dealership's parts department.
It is not unusual for a counter person at an auto parts store to make a mistake and give you the wrong part. Sometimes vehicle manufacturers may retool design in the same model year and unless there is a footnote in the parts look-up book that discloses this, you may have gotten the earlier production part vs. the redesigned one.

94 chevy s10 car stared before putting a new starter in i put in the new starter an nothing happened. i have tried tracing wires and its pretty difficult but i have checked the battery it is fine and...

I know on a lot of these gm starters there is two places you can hook the smaller wire on the starter. If so you probably have it hooked to the wrong one even if you look at the old starter and it looked to be hooked to that one try hooking it to the other one.

96 cadillac eldorodos starter is positioned in a place i cant figure how to change it. anyone know the method.

You will need to remove the intake and all components atatched to be able to change the starter.If you do not have good shop expirence or a mechanical backround I do not suggest you change it.Sorry but it is in a difficult place and a lot of critical items will need to be removed.

How to remove starter from 96 Lincoln town car

If this is a 96 LINCOLN TownCar, then "techbuster" is way off. The 96 didn't have a solenoid on the fender. The starter is located under the passenger side of the engine just ahead of the transmission. It has three bolts holding it on. Remember to disconnect the battery first. The lower starter bolt can be accessed easily, but the other two could be quit difficult. They can be best removed with a very long extension inserted past the passenger side motor mount. The single ignition wire and the starter cable can be removed after the starter is tilted forward to remove it. The starter can then be tested as can the solenoid to determine which is the problem.

I have a 96 chevy suburban w/5.7L 350, that has needed 5 starters

If you are shimming them correctly, there should not be a problem. I will say from experience that a lot of the Auto Zone/Advance Auto Parts starters/alternators are junk. I started buying from Napa, and the dealer, and have had minimal problems since.

step1 Turn the truck off and disconnect the battery. Lift the car with a jack and place jack stands under the frame of the truck. Block the rear wheels to prevent the truck from rolling backwards. Step2 Locate the starter and remove the wires connected to it. Mark them so you know which is positive and which is negative so you can reconnect them accordingly. Step3 Remove the bolts holding the starter in place. There are usually two or three bolts holding the starter. Step4 Pull the starter out of its position and remove it from the truck. Some other parts may need to be loosened or removed for the starter to be removed from the truck. Remember what parts are removed or loosened. Step5 Put the new starter in the truck by installing it the same way the old starter was removed. Tighten the bolts slightly, connect the wires to the starter and then tighten the bolts completely. Step6 Replace any other parts in the truck that were removed or loosened. Lower the truck from the jack stands, remove the blocks from the rear wheelsmag-glass_10x10.gif and reconnect the battery. Start the car to make sure everything is working properly.

'96 Chevy Tahoe won't start

i had similar problem. hard to start in morning but once started, would start everytime until next morning. i changed fuel pump, filter, fuel pressure regulator, coil, cap, rotor, pickup coil, battery. i was finally told the '96 had a recall on the fuel injection assemby. i changed that out with the new mpf system and it solved the problem. runs like a striped ape. hope this helps.
