SOURCE: 96 Chevy S-10 starter problems

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.

SOURCE: Chevy S10 Pickup Starter. Removed the two bolts

Just changed a starter in a 94 S10 4x4. The only way to remove the starter was to take the passenger side exhaust manifold off and bring the starter out that way. Installation the same in reverse. Hope this helps. Don

SOURCE: Torque specs for truck bed mounts

Torque specs are not important in this application, apply some thread locking compound and tighten the bolts.

45-60 ft lbs is about right for the size bolts that are used on that box.

I don't know where my starter is on my 2006 Chevy avalanche

Starters are almost always (99+%) located where the engine block is bolted to the transmission/clutch housing. Depending on what other components are bolted to the engine, you may be able to see and access from the top, but most have to be removed from below. Some are very difficult to get to and may require removal of other components, or loosening engine mounts, etc. Strongly recommend getting a shop manual (Haynes, Chilton, Motor, etc) from an auto parts store for your model. You can also search on YouTube to see if someone has posted a video for your model, or a similar one.

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.

R&r starter to 2006 cobalt ls

Park your Chevy Cobalt on a level surface, activate the emergency brake and place blocks behind the back tires for safety. Disconnect the negative battery cable with a terminal puller. Raise the front end of the car with a jack for easier access to the starter.
Remove the intercooler pump's outer bracket in models with a 2.0L engine. Place the bolt, and all other nuts and bolts, into the jar for safekeeping until later.
Disconnect the starter electrical connections, including the S-terminal and positive battery cable. Label the wires if you have concern about remembering where they go when you install the new starter.
Unscrew the starter mounting bolts and remove the starter from the vehicle's engine.
Take your malfunctioning starter to the parts store with you. Aftermarket distributors remanufacture most of the starters they sell, so you can likely obtain a partial credit toward your new starter by exchanging your old one. Be sure that you take care not to damage the starter in transit, because the better condition it is in, the more you can get for it.
Purchase a replacement starter that has the same or higher cranking capacity (power rating) as the original starter. Also, match the bolt patterns, drive gears and electrical connections. Your owner's manual may list specifications or the auto parts technician will help you determine them. Download a free owner's manual by registering with the Chevy Owner Center (see Resources).
Install the new starter by reversing the removal process. Torque the starter mounting bolts to 37 foot pounds (50 Nm). Tighten the bolt for the intercooler pump bracket to 15 foot pounds (20 Nm).
Lower your Cobalt back to the ground. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Turn the key in the ignition to see if your new starter motor functions correctly.

How to replace a starter on 1999 chevy prizm?

This is for a 1997+ model Chevrolet Prizm. First, disconnect your battery and remove it (negative lead first, positive second). This will come in handy later. Jack your vehicle up and mount it on jack stands. Now remove the two splash shields on the underside. Your starter will be mounted on the forward section of the engine, roughly centered. From the underside you should be able to remove the bottom mounting bolt and disconnect the two electrical connections (One is mounted on a threaded terminal post, the other is a molex-style connector). The top mounting bolt is a little trickier, but made markedly easier having earlier removed your battery. It is on the reverse side from the other mounting bolt and has quite a bit of clutter around it. A short, slim profile ratchet will come in very handy here (something I wish I'd had). After you have disconnected the leads and removed the two mounting bolts, you should be able to wiggle the starter out from the underside. Installation of the starter is the exact reverse of this procedure.

Replacing a starter in a sebring 2006

All of the nuts and bolts are metric on it. It helps to use a 13mm swivel socket on the starter bolts but you can use a wrench if you need to. Also, a 7/8 open end wrench for the 02 sensor, or an 02 sensor socket.

Let me give you the steps for the starter and also the front engine mount bracket. You don't have to remove the entire mount, just the bracket


  1. Open Hood.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Raise vehicle and support.
  4. Disconnect the electrical connector from the 02 sensor.

  • Remove the front mount through bolt.

    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
