  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the cable which runs from the starter to the battery at the battery end.
  3. If necessary, remove the air cleaner assembly in order to gain access to the starter. NOTE: On some models with automatic transmissions, it may be necessary to unfasten the throttle linkage connecting rod.

Where do U locate the starter on a 08 Dodge avenger? How do you replace the starter on an 08 Dodge avenger?

Under the car, beside the engine, on the drivers side. Disconnect the battery first. Three bolts hold it on. Two wires to remove. It is a tight area to work and is a pain to get it out, but it will come out. Watch as it comes out because that is the only way to get it back in. Also there is a shim that HAS to go back between the starter and transmission. If not, the starter will wear out fast. Could take out the flywheel also.

Can anyone tell me where I can locate the starter? A picture would be extremely helpful. Thank you

The starter motor is always attached to the gear box at the end wear it connects to the Engine, depending on you care transmit ion system, if it's manual it's on the clutch end sometimes on older cars called the bell end due to it's shape , the Automatic gear box is the same but contains a fluid torque converter, the starter motor locates into the large ring gear that sit around the outer edge of the clutch flywheel assembly on both types of gear box's, hope this is of some help to you.

Good Luck

My starter make this grinding noise when i crank it

Usually, this means you have a worn gear on the starter, the starter is loosely mounted, the starter solenoid is malfunctioning, or the flywheel has a worn spot on it. First check to see that the starter is mounted correctly (and all bolts are tight). If tight, and you can remove the starter, check the teeth on it for wear. If no wear is present, have the starter tested for the solenoid functionality. While the starter is removed, check the flywheel for a missing gear tooth or for obvious wear.

Shim location

Shims can be where the starter case meets the bell housing. There are not many models using shims anymore, they were used a lot in GM vehicles, not so much in Ford products.
The gear on the starter drive needs to mesh with the flywheel teeth. Sometimes a starter would rock loose in its mount and wear the starter case or the bell housing. When you try to align the 2 parts, it would throw off the mesh of the gears and teeth. The shims are usually patterned after the shape of the facing of the parts. You may need to go to the Dealer for these shims.

1994 Camry 4 Cylinder-Starter spins fine but does not seem to engage the flywheel. I have a new starter and battery. Im not ready to get into the flywheel. What else can I test to see why its not engaging...

Well, the easiest solution is to pull the starter and bench test it. Likely areas for your issue is the starter drive, and flywheel teeth. You need to inspect the teeth of the flywheel.

one quick test would be to manually turn the engine to another location and fresh teeth on the flywheel, and try starting again. Engines tend to stop at some spots, and that can cause unusual wear on teeth in one small location.

Sometimes rebuilt starter do not get all new parts, but only what is failing, so it is possible to get a malfunctioning starter drive. Starter drive failure usually turns the engine over briefly, then the starter disengauges....

Starter won't turn but lights stay bright when ignation is activated

With the ignition off, locate the starter, use a handle from a broom or hammer and give the starter a whack. Try this a couple of times, it may get it going. Over time the "brushes" wear and the resulting dust coats the little copper contacts, this in turn insulates it so no current will pass and the starter will not turn. It may work a few times before it plugs again, so look into getting ready to purchase a rebuild or new starter.

Replaced starter now grinds

Loosen the starter bolts and push it away / reposition it farther from the flywheel (circumference) then retighten the bolts. Then try it again. It is rare that a rebuilt starter is defective but... it does happen.

Got spark and fuel put a new starter in car wont start. Could it be a cam sensor if so where is that located on the car?

Unless the cam sensor is totally shattered which is rare that won't have a lot of effect.(it wears yes) On the 3800 90-94 models it is located bottom of motor left side as you face motor (very difficult location)
On the starter its possible your solenoid was the culprit in the first place.Did the starter come with solenoid attached ?
