Question about 1988 Toyota 4Runner

Can't get starter out of motor compartment

I have removed the starter from the motor, but I can't get it out to work on it. There are no holes to get it out, I have turned, twisted, rotated, everything I can think of but can't get it out. How do I get it out of the motor compartment? It is an auto transmission, and has air.

    I have tried to remove the starter through the top of the engine compartment, but it is to big. There is a heat shield covering the exhaust that I haven't removed, but I don't think there will be enough room even then to get it out. It is a 1998 4 runner, not an 88.

NOTE: Some Toyota models have an access plate in the fender well to facilitate starter service. Check for such an access point before beginning starter service.

  1. Disconnect battery ground cable. Remove battery, battery tray and/or igniter bracket, if necessary.
    1. Disconnect electrical connectors from starter motor.
    2. Remove air cleaner assembly, if necessary.
    3. On models with automatic transmission, remove transmission oil filler tube if necessary.
    4. Remove starter motor attaching bolts, heat shield (if equipped), then the starter motor.
    5. Reverse procedure to install.

    Sorry For the Mistake, I Have Sense Checked ALL 4Runner Applications and they All are Straight Forward Removal Procedures, Beyond this the Most I Have Seen For the Removal Of a Starter Is EXHAUST PIPE Removed to Gain Access to Starter & Remove It .

Front blower motor not working


Hi there,

Your front blower motor not working may be as a result of the failure of the heater control resistor unit. However, if you can hear the blower motor operating, but cannot feel air flow from the vents, there is a problem with the airflow controls, not the blower motor.

Also, you can check if there is any fluid leaking from the heater core or evaporator. Any fluid leaks near the heater blower may need to be resolved immediately. If a total replacement is needed, here's how you do it:

  • Raise and support the hood on your van. Loosen and remove the negative cable from its post on the battery with a socket wrench. Lay the cable down within the engine compartment. Wait approximately 12 minutes before you continue the repair. This will allow enough time for the back-up power sources for the air bags to deplete their energy.
  • Open the front passenger's-side door and have a seat within the van. Open the glove compartment door and take out everything in it. At the upper, rear of the door you should see black tabs--one on both sides of the door.
  • Grasp the glove compartment door on both sides near each of the tabs. Squeeze the door inward to release the tabs and lower the door. Allow the door to hang--you do not have to completely remove it.
  • Locate the blower motor cover. If you look through the hole where the glove compartment door was, you should see the cover directly in front of you. The cover is black and looks like a strangely shaped circle
  • Remove the three bolts from around the lip of the cover with your socket wrench. Pull the cover off and set it to the side. Follow the blower motor's wiring harness through the hole in the blower motor housing and unplug the harness. Back-feed the wires through the hole in the housing and allow them to hang from the blower motor.
  • Remove the three bolts around the base of the blower motor that secure it in place with your socket wrench. Pull the blower motor toward you and then lower it down from under the dashboard. Install the new blower motor just as you removed the old one. It will not fit through the glove compartment hole. You have to raise it up from under the dashboard.
  • Return and completely secure all three of the bolts to the base of the blower motor with your socket wrench. Feed the new blower motor's wiring harness back through the hole in the housing. Plug the harness back up to the same connection to which the old blower connected.
  • Place the cover back over the blower motor. Return and tighten all three of the cover's bolts with your socket wrench. Lift the glove compartment door and squeeze inward near the tabs once more. Push the tabs back behind the door opening and then release the door. Return everything you had in the glove compartment and shut the door.
  • Reconnect and secure the negative cable to the battery with your socket wrench. Shut the hood, start your Town & Country's engine and test out the blower motor.

Best of luck...

Where can i find the starter on a nissan frontier 2004


The starter on the Nissan Frontier is a motor that is connected to the battery that runs the ignition process of the truck. When you turn the key to start the truck, this will send an electrical signal to the starter motor that turns the flywheel. The flywheel in turns moves the crankshaft. When the starter goes bad or teeth on the starter gear get chipped this will prevent the truck from starting. Locating the starter is the first step in replacing it.
  • Open the hood to access the engine compartment. Locate the battery to the passenger side of the engine compartment.
  • Identify the positive terminal of the battery. This will be indicated by the (+) symbol above the terminal.
  • Trace the red cable that is attached to the positive terminal. The cable will run from the battery down to the side of the motor.
  • Locate the end of the red cable as it is attached to the starter. The starter will be attached to a bracket by the motor with the back of the starter connected to the bell housing of the transmission.
  • Remove the front passenger side tire for easier access to the starter. This will also give you plenty of room to remove the starter.
I hope this helps.

Good luck.

The starter is located on the drivers side of the engine compartment, just inside the rear of the inner fender well. ---------- Its not very easy to replace starter.Still the procedure is as follows if you want to do it yourself.---------- Park your car on a level surface.Open the hood. Disconnect the black, negative battery cable.Raise the front of the vehicle using a floor jack and safely support it on 2 jack stands.
  • Remove the starter motor heat shield from underneath the vehicle (driver side) using a wrench or ratchet and socket.You have to drop the lead pipe. Then take off the heat sheild on the wiring harness by the lead pipe and the heat shield on the lead pipe.
  • Disconnect the battery cable from the starter solenoid using a wrench,then remove the second wire connection on the solenoid using a wrench.

  • Remove the two starter mounting bolts using a ratchet, socket, ratchet extension and universal joint to give yourself extra clearance if necessary.

  • Work the starter motor out of the engine compartment and away from the vehicle.

  • Set the new starter and solenoid assembly in place and install the two mounting bolts.

  • Connect the battery cable and wire to the back of the starter solenoid; install the heat shield and lower the vehicle.

    This is the procedure.You can follow it.

    Starter - Removal & Installation

    The starter motor on some models is very difficult to see from the top of engine compartment as it is covered by the intake manifold. On these models, without removing the intake manifold, the starter motor must be removed from underneath the vehicle. Because the starter motor mounting bolts are not easy to access, a long extension with a universal joint mounted on a proper sized socket could be used. A three foot transmission extension is commercially available from tool vendors that has a 3 / 8 inch drive of the driven end and 1 / 2 inch drive on the drive end. If used with a non-binding impact universal joint and a proper fitting impact socket, the starter motor fasteners can be removed from underneath the vehicle.
    Once the starter motor fasteners are removed, the starter motor may have to be moved side-to-side several times to loosen the dowel pin if it has corroded in place.

    NOTE When the battery is disconnected, the radio code, on-board computer and clock settings will be lost. The radio code should be obtained before disconnecting the battery or radio. Once the battery has been reconnected, the radio will not function unless the code is keyed in.
    Starter motor electrical terminal fastener torque specifications for all models:
    M5 terminal fasteners: 44 inch lbs. (5 Nm)
