Cant remove top trans bolts


Most transmission shops have a transmission jack to support trans and they remove the rear cross member and trans mount lowering the trans down causes it to tilt giving you more room to access the upper bolts and with a 3 foot extension it is a lot easier to reach.

HOW TO REMOVE A STARTER FROM A SATURN SC1 97


Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5973094-starter_replace . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.
I have pasted specific instructions for your car below from autozone.com


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION See Figures 2 through 10

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  3. If equipped, remove the starter shield pin by pulling on it with pliers, then lift and release the shield from the solenoid.
  4. Spray the solenoid electrical connection nuts and studs with penetrating oil, and allow it to seep in for a minute to loosen the connections. While the oil is soaking in, tag the solenoid electrical connectors for identification during assembly.
It is very important that the solenoid electrical connection nuts and studs are sprayed with penetrating oil prior to removal to avoid damage to the solenoid end cap. A cracked cap will allow debris and moisture to enter and corrode the solenoid contacts.
  1. Carefully loosen the bolts and detach the starter electrical connectors. Position the wires to the side and out of the way.
  2. Remove the lower starter mounting bolt.
  3. Using an obstruction wrench, remove the upper starter mounting bolt. If the upper starter mounting bolt cannot be reached from below the vehicle, it may be accessible from above, through the intake manifold support bracket opening.
  4. If equipped, remove the bolt attaching the starter rear support bracket to the vehicle. Rotate the starter until the bracket misses the axle shaft support bracket.
  5. Carefully support the starter, pulling it rearward and toward the left side of the vehicle to remove it.

To install:

  1. If equipped on the old starter, install the rear starter support bracket to the new starter. Tighten the bracket nuts to 7 ft. lbs. (9 Nm).
  2. Guide the starter into the bell housing and rotate the assembly until the lower bolt hole in the starter aligns.
  3. Verify that the bracket is properly aligned and loosely install the bracket bolt, then loosely install the starter mounting bolts. It may be necessary to raise or lower the vehicle for access to both the upper and lower bolts, but do not tighten any bolts until all of the mounting bolts have been started.
  4. Tighten both upper and lower starter assembly attachment bolts to 27 ft. lbs. (37 Nm).
  5. Reconnect the electrical wires and install the nuts. Be careful not to overtighten the nuts and crack the solenoid end cap. Route the wiring cable so it will not contact any rough surfaces. Tighten the starter positive terminal nut to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm) and the solenoid terminal nut to 44 inch lbs. (5 Nm).
  6. If equipped, install the starter shield and push pin, being careful that the pin is positioned for possible future removal.
  7. Lower the vehicle.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable and verify operation.

I need a diagram to get the starter out of my 1998 Ford Escort.


Your starter is located on the back side of the engine at the top of the transmission bell housing, under the intake manifold. You can reach the main battery wire, and switch wire, by reaching from the right hand side under the intake manifold, the starter mounting bolts can be accessed by removing the air intake hose. Hope this helps, let me know.

Remove oil pan on 98 dodge stratus? The mount bar is preventing me from reaching the back two bolts. Is there a special tool or do you have to remove the transmission?


Most cars today you have to raise the engine somewhat to remove the oil pan. To do so you'll need to first support the engine (use a lift if you can) and unbolt the engine mounts. Before lifting look at any wires, hoses or such which could be of issue if the engine were raised. If so remove or move as required. Once this is done you may be able to raise the engine (slightly) to access the bolts and remove the pan.
I hope this mauy have helped,
Tom

Remove starter


You will need to remove the front motor mount by placing a hydraulic jack under the engine (but not on the oil pan), lifting the engine slightly. Remove the front motor mount, and lower the jack (and engine) which will allow you access to the last bolt and allow for ease of removal/installation of the starter.

OIL PAN


You may need to use smaller-drive sockets (like a 1/4" with a swivel) to reach the tough ones. Sometimes they're obstructed by parts that can be removed as well - you should look to see if anything that is blocking bolt access is removable or adjustable. If all else fails, and the bolts are being blocked by parts of the frame, you may need to loosen or remove a motor mount and lift that part of the engine a few inches up to reach the last few bolts.

Without seeing a picture of what is being blocked, I can only take stabs in the dark, but those would be the most likely solutions that I can think of.

Starter


The starter is behind the engine and accessible from beneath the car. The mounting bolt under the car might be obscured by the starter wire, but you will be able to see it clearly enough after pulling the wire out of the way. It goes through the starter and threads into the engine (from the passenger's side of the car toward the driver's side).

The other bolt is barely accessible from the top of the car. It goes through a hole in the engine and threads into the starter (from the driver's side toward the passenger's side), so it is oriented opposite to the first bolt. You can't see it, but you can feel it by reaching your fingers in from the driver's side under the steel bracket that supports the wire harness in that area. I was able to place a 14mm socket head over the bolt by feel, then snap the handle in and remove it that way. You won't be able to get it with a wrench unless you undo a bunch of wires and hoses. Be careful; there are two bolts there, and the one for the starter is further to the rear of the car. It is identical to the other starter bolt, so you should be able to distinguish the bolt head by feel.

The starter can be wrestled down and out of the car from beneath, but it takes a few minutes of struggling and twisting. It might be easier if you remove some bracketing or hoses, but I managed without.

Good luck!

1994 Jaguar XJR 4.0 (Six Cylinder)


If this is the same system as the earlier XJ40`s you access the rear shocks from unerneath.

The lower mount is simply a large (30mm-ish) nut & bolt thru the lower arm front to back, the top mount is held up by 4 small (13mm-ish) bolts going up into the rear floor.

They are then carefully fiddled out sideways & each must be refitted the same way round (the mounts are angled but mark them before removing).
