2.2L Engine remove protective shields as needed then remove front exhaust pipe. Remove the brace from the engine to the clutch housing, then disconnect starter wiring. 4.3L Engine 2 wheel drive just remove the right front tire and you will have access to the wiring. 4.3L Engine 4 wheel drive you must remove the differential carrier shield if equipped then remove the starter bolts and rotate the starter to get access to the wiring. Good Luck.

I usually disconnect the battery and take out the two starter mounting bolts. This way you can manouver the starter into a position to remove the wires. It is a bit tight but this has worked for me in the past.

I have a 1999 gmc sonoma which I recently had clutch replaced however it still won't go into gear. Any suggestions as to what else it cold be?


did you have it pro replaced? If so, you should take it back to them. How long is your warranty? If you personally replaced, you need to check the service manual. Here is the owner manual

Replacing starter for gmc sonoma


You will need to remove the motor mounts and jack up the engine and remove the passenger side tire to be able to get it out. the starter is only 2 bolts. Not hard just time consuming. Disconnect the battery before starting the process. The bolts on the starter are easily accessable you will have to raise engine to be able to get it out.

99 gmc sonoma starts sometimes and sometimes it doesn't


Check and clean your battery cables. Then, trace the wires from your battery to your starter. Make sure they are clean and secure. I believe this will fix your problem. If not, you may have a starter solenoid starting to fail.

Hope this helps and good luck!
