91 stanza starter motor location...??

Ive checked chiltons and haynes; both describe how to uninstall & test the starter motor + solenoid, but neither actually describe where it is located on the vehicle. I appreciate any help.

All starters turn the flywheel on the engine. As such, if you look around the perimeter of the bellhousing where the transmission bolts to the back of the engine you will find the starter. To do an in-car test, check the main power lead with a volt meter with the key off, then on, then check the small (trigger) wire for voltage with the key turned to the start position. This will verify that your starter is getting 12v it needs to operate. Last test is to put the volt meter across both terminals of the battery. It should read 12v or better. then turn the key to start. If volts drop to less than 9.5v the starter is bad. (or if both starter volt tests show good and starter does nothing it is also bad)

1990 stanza car can be pushed and clutch start car.When you turn key on dash lights come on cae will not turn over. put in new battery did not help

Do you get a fairly loud 'click' when you turn the key to 'start'? If so, you need a meter or test light to check if power appears at the starter terminal when the solenoid clicks. If power appears, the starter requires repair or replacement (usually the brushes). If no power appears, then replace the starter solenoid. Hope this helps!

1989 nissan stanza. can push start it. but when turn key it does nothing.

check the fuse
it can be starter or ignition switch
go to the starter, there are three wire on the solenoid
two big ones, check with a test light, one of them should have power all the time
the smallest one should have power when you start
if the small wire does not have power when you crank then the switch is bad
if the small one has power when you start then the starter is bad

1991 nissan stanza starter problems

Hi Jim.

When you turn the key, you should at least hear the starter solenoid click. When you turn the key the ignition switch sends 12 volts to the Starter solenoid ( really just a relay). The Solenoid closes and applies 12 volts (at a high current) to the starter motor to crank the engine. If you have a way to measure voltage, you should get 12 volts at the small terminal on the starter solenoid. The solenoid is mounted on the top of the starter motor.If you get 12 volts but no cranking, the solenoid is not working. If you get 12 volts and the starter doesn't crank the starter is defective. At this [point take a small hammer and tap the starter motor, not hard, just medium. Sometimes this will cause the starter motor to catch next time you turn the key. Best bet is to remove the starter motor (with solenoid attached) and take it to an Auto Zone type store where they can check it out for you. Be dure you disconnect the ground terminal of the battery before you attempt to remove the starter motor.

Hope this helps Good luck loringh PS Please leave a rating for me if appropriate Thks
