Yes pull the battery - or take it loose. Chock your tires. If you have enough room  to get under with out jacking thats good. But if you need to jack it up please use jack stands rated to hold your truck. Now find your starter and take any wires off. If you have long 3/8 extension w/ universal sockets is best. or 2-3 short extension together, work from in front of the exhaust down pipe to take loose the wiring. . On some trucks there is a bracket at the one end most people do not see, it runs from the block to the starter is best to take loose from the block end till you drop the starter out. remove the starter to block bolts last. Take note of any shims and there posistion. you may also use masking tape and letter your wires so you know from where they go. Becareful work slow. and No Cussing.

How do you change a starter on a 2003 chevrolet 2500 gas pickup truck? Where is it located and how do you install the new one?

Well the starter is located beside the oil pan on the passenger side.First disconnect the the negative battery cable and then you can take the 2 bolts out that hold the starter in but be carefull as you take the last bolt out as there are a few wires to take off and you don't want to just let the old starter drop and rip out the wires,make sure you remember what wire goes where so you put it back in same place on new starter.Hook up wires on new starter put the two bolts back in to hold the starter to the motor tighten them up rehook up battery cable and try out your starter and see if it works.

How do you change the starter on a 1993 chevy silverado 1500?

Two bolts hold it to the engine block. Make sure you disconnect the battery first before doing any work. Negative cable first, then positive cable. After that, disconnect the wires attached to the starter and remove the two bolts, pull out. Replace in reverse procedure. Make sure you remember what wires went to what!

Where is starter located on 2004 chrysler pacifica???

Look around the "back" of the engine beside the transmission. The Starter connects to the flywheel to start the engine.
If you are replacing the starter you may want to consider doing this first;
) Have the charging system checked. Many auto parts stores and Sears will do this for free.
) Clean the battery terminal/connectors.
) Check the wiring from the battery to make sure it's good.

If you replace the starter yourself;
) Does your car have an anti-thief alarm ? If so find how to reset it if the battery is disconnected. Some alarms will shut down the car if the battery is disconnected !!
) Disconnct the wiring to the starter.
) Remove the bolts holding the starter. Remove the harder one to reach first.
) Pull out the old starter.
) Put it the new starter.
) Bolt the new starter in. Put the easier bolt to reach first.
) Connect the wiring to the new starter.
) Re-connect the battery.
) If necessary reset the thief alarm.
) Take the old starter back for a core charge refund.

Diagram needed

you really don't need one.....
1.Disconnect the battery
2.locate the starter. If its a v8 itll be on the driver side at the back of the engine beside the oil pan
3.there are two bolts on the bottom of the starter that you need to remove with a 9/16 socket or wrench.(support the starter when you remove the last bolt so the wires don't get broken)
4.observe the location of all of the wires attached to the starter(make a diagram so you don't forget where they go)
5.Remove the nuts that hold the wires on the starter.(make sure the ring connectors and wires are in good shape if you notice any damaged ones they should be replaced)
6. reverse procedure to install new one
..............hope this is helpfull.good luck!
