1991 Pontiac 6000 starter just clicking

I just replaced the starter on my Pontiac 6000. I brought the old one in to test it and confirmed it was bad. Now, when I turn the key, it clicks. I assume that there is an alignment problem with the starter gear and the flywheel. Any advice?

Have a 1989Pontiac 6000 LE it won't start. It has new battery starter and altermator. I turn key and have nothing no clicking noise or nothing. Any help greatly appreciated

When turning the key to start measure for B+voltage at the S terminal on the starter solenoid . If no B+ voltage possible bad park neutral safety switch . check For B+ voltage at the heavy gage battery cable on the starter while trying to cranking the engine , less then battery voltage , bad cable . Find starter voltage drop testing on youtube , watch the video . Also starter circuit testing .

Where do i locate the heater core in a 1991 pontiac 6000le

The heater core is inside the heater case. It is the same plastic case that houses the blower motor. Usually they are replaced under the hood near the firewall or under the dash. I would look at the free online repair manuals provided by parts stores such as . They should have the info you need for your particular model.

Starting problem

check connections. are your lights dimming when you crank? if they are not diming when u put them on, your not getting enough power to the starter and or its another bad one. a good starter will draw power causing your headlights to dim. the clicking is a good sign its a bad starter or not enough battery juce getting to it. check for good clean connections. the older 2.8 are some messy motors. leaking valve covers liek those have get alot of oil and dirt build up.

When i brought my car i didnt realize the horn didn't work.

the clicking is the relay which is telling you that the connection at the horn is bad or the horn it self it bad, it also tells you the fuses are good.. i would find the horn, clean the connection, try it, then test the wire with someone else pushing the horn button and you should get a 12v reading if you get power and the connection is good then you just need to get a new horn.

Car stalls when you come to a stop

I have a 1991 pontiac 6000 that had the same problem a few years ago. In fact, this problem is common on the cutlass and other similar cars. The most common root cause is a bad TCC (torque converter clutch) solenoid. This part is fairly inexpensive to replace (approx. $20 part) and is located in the side pan on the transmission. You will also need a side pan gasket and some fluid to replace any that leaks. The TCC is designed to lock up when the engine is warm and cruising in high gear (this saves gas like having another gear). If the TCC solenoid is bad, it can cause the TC to stay locked up when you slow down. This is similar to using the brake to stop a manual shift car without depressing the clutch. The result is a car that shakes a bit then quits running.

A quick way to confirm this is the problem is to unplug the connector on the front edge of the transmission housing (about one foot behind the radiator). This will prevent the TCC from locking. You will also notice that the speedometer does not work while this is disconnected so be careful to stay under the speed limit.

Changed starter and now we get a revving/whirring sound

It sounds like the starter is not engaging the flywheel to crank it and is just spinning. If it were mine, I'd pull the starter out and see if anything looks strange and see if the starter gear moves easily.
