Your 1999 Mitsubishi Diamante is a 3.5L MFI SOHC 6cyl engine.
MFI = multi-port fuel injection
SOHC = single overhead camshaft
This answer covers Mitsubishi Diamante1.8L, 2.4L, 3.0L (SOHC and DOHC), 3.5L, and 1997-2000 1.5L Engines.

2. Remove the timing belt.
3. Unplug the sensor connector.
4. Unfasten the two retaining bolts, then remove the CKP sensor from the vehicle.

Starter won't come out


Starter is held in with two bolts. After disconnecting the negative cable on the battery, remove the two bolts retaning the starter. If starter is stuck, apply rust penetrant around the area where starter mates with trans. Try to remove by hand after soaking for two hours. If still stuck, get a two by four and lightly tap the starter to help loosen it from the trans.

I am replaceing the starter on a 1998 toyota corolla 1.8 ltr. How do I get to the top bolt on the starter to remove it ?


Hello,

To replace the starter of a 1998 toyota corolla, please follow the steps below:
  1. Remove the key from the ignition, and remove the battery, do not attempt this with the battery in car.
  2. Remove the battery and tray.
  3. Look to the rear of the engine, You'll see the top of the starter, loosen and remove the 14mm bolt/nut holding it down below,
  4. Drain the radiator and remove the lower radiator hose. This will let You squeeze the starter around the AC line,
  5. Then install the new starter, the one bolt You removed from the bottom, screw the last 14mm bolt on the starter into the transmission loosely,
  6. Go up top, reinstall the top bolt, tighten this firmly but not all the way,
  7. Go below, tighten the bottom bolt to final spec.
  8. Reattach all the wires, make sure the trigger wire is snapped in fully.
  9. Go up top, firmly firmly tighten to spec the top bolt,
  10. Reinstall everything You removed up top the below,
  11. Reinstall the battery and make sure the ignition is off while doing this,

On a 323is model starter replacement. is this difficult?


Disconnect the mattery negative. Remove dipstick guide tube.Disconnect starter wiring. Romove the top and bottom starter bolts. Bottom bolt removes from under the car. Pull and twist the starter till the solenoid is at the top and remove the starter. Some models have a bracket at the rear of the starter that also needs to be removed before the starter can be removed.

How to replace a starter in a 1996 acura tl 2.5?


  • Since the starter involved the electrical system, disconnect the negative battery terminal to avoid any electrical shorts or other issues.The starter is located on the driver's side just below the intake manifold and near the firewall. Remove the transmission dip stick, which partially obstructs the starter.Loosen the top bolt on the starter with a 14-mm wrench and loosen the bottom bolt with a 17-mm wrench a couple of turns but do not remove the bolts.After both of the bolts are loose, remove the top bolt and then the bottom bolt and pull the starter out of the transmission bell housing. You will have to angle the starter a little to remove it.Remove the wire that goes to the ignition switch. The wire should simply slide off. Use the 9-mm wrench to disconnect the nut that holds on the solenoid wire.
  • Place wires on the new or remanufactured starter and place it back in the bell housing
  • Replace the top and bottom bolts.Put transmission dipstick back in the gearbox and reconnect the battery.

    Need to replace the starter on the 97 mitsubishi Diamante, how hard is it to remove and replace ?


    To replace the starter you need to;
    ) Note if you have an anti-thief system and now to reset it if the battery is disconnected.
    ) Note the radio station selections if they are not saved if the battery is disconnected.

    Now
    ) Disconnected the GROUND connector on the battery.
    ) Disconnect the electrical cable on the battery.
    ) Remove the 2 bolts holding the starter on. Remove the harder one to reach first.
    ) Pull the old starter out.
    ) Insert the new starter.
    ) Replace the bolt. Insert the easier bolt first.
    ) Tighten the bolts.
    ) Replace the electrical cable.
    ) Reconnect the GROUND connector on the battery.
    ) Reset any radio, clock or anti-thief systems.
    ) Return old starter for a core charge refund.

    I need to remove my starter on my 98 Diamante but I can not see all mounting bolts and I need to know where the bolts are located.


    Hi, I am assuming you know where starter is. If you have found bottom bolt #14 metric socket which to reach you "must" use a medium length extention and go into it right above manifold pipe to reach it. I found if you take the guard off the starter 3 small hex head screws, it is much easier to get at all bolts (2). Whats strange is the lower bolt on starter mounts from the front and the "TOP" bolt #14 has to be reached from the rear of starter. You can not see the top bolt from bottom or top, but if you use your hand and reach up aroung the back of starter you can feel it! It took 2 of us one reaching up from bottom with just #14 deep well socket (no extention) on the rachet and feeling where to place it with rachet facing up, and person over top of engine reaching down helping to align socket on bolt, then use a piece of pipe or ? From the top place pipe extension on end of rachet and bolt will easily.
    break loose. Good Luck it sounds hard but is fairly easy with right tools. kasheyboy77
