Removing the starter

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Disconnect all wiring from the starter solenoid. Replace each nut as the connector is removed (as thread sizes differ from connector to connector). Note or tag the wiring positions for installation.
  4. Remove the bracket from the starter and the two mounting bolts. On engines with a solenoid heat shield, remove the front bracket upper bolt and detach the bracket from the starter.
  5. Remove the front bracket bolt or nut. Lower the starter front end first, and then remove the unit from the car.
These are the steps for removing the starter on the Camaro. Did you remove the bracket? Hope this helped and best wishes.

1986 2.8 camaro starts an dies, but will run on spray. new computer, dist. injectors an pump.


Hold the ignition switch just off where the engine cranks after it starts, if it stays running you need to replace the ignition starter switch. This is the switch at the bottom of the steering column that the key cylinder operates via a rod. See photo below.

I have an 83 camaro z28 with a 5.0 305 engine, why does it sputter when accelerating past 30 miles per hour


Could be any number of things. Bad coil or weak spark, low fuel pressure or clogged fuel filter. A breakdown of the ignition subsystems equivalent to points and firing sensors.

You should check EGR by very temporarily plugging vacuum line and see if performance is changed. Sometimes blocked exhaust Catalytics or collapsed muffler baffles will plug up the exhaust and require too much push to clear the pipes.

Starter on a 1987 Chevrolet camaro irocz


What about it???
Location?
Bolted to the bottom rear of the block on the passenger side.
How to remove?
Some starters are larger than others. You may have to unbolt the exhaust Y pipe (down pipes from the exhuast manifolds)
Disconnect the battery,
Jack the car up and support it on stands,
disconnect the battery cable from the starter. There may also be at least on or two smaller wires on that same starter lug.
Dosconnect the small wire from the "S" terminal of the starter,
Remove the two bolts that go straight up from the bottom of the starter. The starter is heavy and gravity aint helping!

If the replacement starter makes a screeching sound when used, you may need to install shims between the starter and the engine block where it bolts up. Most the time the new starter will come with a few shims.

1986 camaro v8 tunedport will not start wipers lights etc work brand new battery.i get no crank at all. neutral safty switch mabe??what do you think????


if you use a test light and check for voltage on the big wire at the starter this will tell you that the wiring from the battery to the starter is good.now check the small wire at the starter while someone tries to start the car you should have power to that wire.if you do then the wiring from the ignition switch to the starter terminal and everything in between is good.the problem is the starter solenoid or the starter.its a good idea to replace the starter as a new solenoid comes with it as apposed to changing only the solenoid and the starter goes bad shortly after.if you don`t have power to the terminal then check the neutral safety switch.

I need help on how to take off the Exhaust pipe on my 86 S10 Blazer 2.8L 4WD... I'm trying to replace my rod bearings but i need to take off the oil pan.. which i tried to take off the starter, the cross...


Exhaust almost always gets so rusty that heat is required.
I doubt you can get it hot enough without oxi-acetyline.
If you try brute force, the bolts might just snap.

How to change the starter from my 1994 chevy camaro


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION 3.4L and 1993-95 5.7L Engines
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. If necessary for access to the starter, disconnect the exhaust crossover pipe from the manifolds.
  4. Unfasten the two starter mounting bolts/screws and carefully lower the starter motor.


To install:

Before attaching the electrical connectors, tighten the inner nuts on the solenoid terminals. If the nuts are not tight, the solenoid cap could be damaged during installation of the leads. Tighten the inner nut of the "BAT" terminal to 80 inch lbs. (9 Nm).
  1. Fasten the electrical leads to the starter motor assembly. Tighten the solenoid switch "BAT" terminal outer nut to 80 inch lbs. (9 Nm) and the "S" terminal nut to 22 inch lbs. (2.5 Nm).
  2. Position the starter motor to the engine and install the retaining bolts/screws. Tighten to 35 ft. lbs. (47 Nm).
  3. Measure the starter pinion-to-flywheel clearance and add shims, if necessary.
  4. If removed, connect the exhaust crossover pipe to the manifolds.
  5. Carefully lower the vehicle, then connect the negative battery cable. Tighten the cable to 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm).

Hope helps.

How do you install a oxygen sensor in a 97 camaro


you need to remove the old sensor from the exhaust pipe with a box wrench, and the new one will thread in... there is also a wire which is longer and has a clip that needs to be undone also. remember let some penetrating oil work the threads because it is more then likely heat bonded in.
