bottom rear of engine on the passenger side, the starter is serviced from under the car. it is held to the engine block with two bolts, then u must remove the battery cable and starter solenoid wiring as well, always disconnect the battery before doing any work on the starter.

STARTER REPLACEMENT ( 1995-97 4.3L MODELS )

ad8746e.jpg

Fig.: The starter motor on later model 4.3L engines is retained by two long bolts

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and support the front of the truck safely using jackstands.
  3. If necessary for access, disconnect the front exhaust pipe.
  4. If equipped, remove the starter heat shield.
  5. On the 2.2L engine, remove the brace rod from the front of the engine and the bell housing.
  6. On 2.2L engines, remove the drivers side wheel to access the starter motor wires and the starter motor attaching bracket-to-engine bolt through the opening in the wheel well.
  7. Disengage the wires from the starter solenoid.
  8. On the 2.2L engine, remove the attaching bracket-to-engine mount bolt.
  9. Remove the starter-to-engine block bolts. When removing the last bolt, be sure to support the starter to keep it from falling and possibly injuring you.
  10. Carefully lower the starter and shims (if equipped) from the vehicle.
  11. If necessary, remove the bracket (2.2L engine) or the shield (4.3L engine) from the starter assembly.

To install:
  1. If removed, install the bracket or shield to the starter, as applicable. Tighten the bracket nuts to 97 inch lbs. (11 Nm) or the shield nuts to 106 inch lbs. (12 Nm).
  2. Carefully raise the starter and shims (if equipped) into position in the vehicle and thread one of the retaining bolts to hold it in position.
  3. On the 2.2L engine, loosely install the bracket-to-engine mount bolt.
  4. Install the remaining starter mounting bolt, then tighten all mounting fasteners to 32 ft. lbs. (43 Nm).
  5. Engage the wiring to the solenoid as noted during removal.
  6. On the 2.2L engine, install the brace rod and tighten the retainers.
  7. If disconnected for access, install the front exhaust pipe and tighten the fasteners.
  8. If equipped, install the starter heat shield.
  9. On 2.2L engines, install the drivers side wheel.
  10. Remove the jackstands and carefully lower the truck.
  11. Connect the negative battery cable.

Hope this help (remember rated this help) Good luck.

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.

'95 GMC Sonoma ran great until it just quit...stopped dead. No warning lights, smoke or odors. Driving along and just stopped running. Headlights bright. Turned key with lights on lights didnt dim out....


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Two things to look at. Starter and ignition coil. If one of this is faulty there will be no current to burn fuel. I strongly suggest that you replace it resolve the issue.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I cannot get the starter on a 95 GMC Sonoma to drop after I have loosened it.


It doesn't drop. You have to pull it out...maybe do some prying if it's uncooperative. It has a gear that meshes with the flywheel. Hope you have the cables disconnected and the battery negative also disconnected.
