Starter replacement on f150 4.6


Ford engineers obviously got a big laugh when they designed this one. The third bolt is not visible, but it is right at the top of the bolt "circle", the bottom two are visible and fairly accessible. If you have small hands, you might be able to reach a finger way up there and feel it. Because of the engine mount, you have to have a socket and extension that is exactly the right length, leaving just enough room between the end of the starter and the engine mount to attach a ratchet. Getting the socket on the bolt head is sort of a stab in the dark; push the socket and extension toward where you think the bolt is, and sometimes you can feel the socket engage the bolt head. The only other option might be to remove the exhaust manifold so you can see the bolt, but you are likely to break off at least one manifold bolt/stud, so that would be a last resort for me. Once the top starter bolt is loosened, you might have better luck finishing the removal with 1/4 inch drive tools as they take up less space.

Remove a starter


  • Remove the negative and positive lead on the battery.
  • Locate the starter under the vehicle. The starter will be located to the right of the motor on the bottom. Access the bolts comfortably from underneath the truck.
  • Remove the bottom bolt with a socket wrench. The ground cable will be attached. Save the bolt for reinstalling the starter.
  • Unbolt the positive cable on top of the starter. Use a socket wrench to remove the bolt.
  • Unbolt the top of the starter with a socket wrench. The starter will be loose.
  • Pull the starter straight out. Use both hands to pull out and forward as the starter is heavy. Pull forward and lower to the ground.
Installing the Starter
  • Position the new starter in place. Match up the starter to the designated bolt holes on the mounts.
  • Start the top bolt. Turn the bolt clockwise but do not tighten the starter down.
  • Start the bottom bolt. Ensure the negative cable is run through the bolt before starting. Do not tighten the bolt.
  • Tighten the top bolt with the socket wrench. Tighten it snug. Repeat the same for the bottom bolt. Ensure both bolts are tight.
  • Tighten the positive cable to the starter. Ensure the cable is snug to the fitting.
  • Connect the terminals to the battery. Ensure the vehicle cranks. The starter will engage without hesitation if done correctly.

Where is the starter located in the engine bay? And how do I replace it once I find it?


Hi there,

Disconnect battery. You will need two wrenches to disconnect the battery. One to secure the bolt, and the other to undo the nut on the other end. You will need a half inch wrench to undo the battery. The starter itself is on the underside of the truck. It is in the center front of the truck, a bit toward the passenger side of the truck. It is a black cylinder, about 6inches long. You will need to get under the truck to access it.

Since the starter is next to other components, plan on using your socket wrench to undo the bolts. The starter is mounted with 2 bolts, remove them. (Some are mounted with 3 bolts - the third is hidden on the top of the starter. You will know if it has a third because it won't slide out easily.) Remove Positive wire from solenoid. Remove red wire with plastic black end by simply pulling on it. Starter is out! Take the old starter to the auto parts store with you when you buy the new starter. The parts store will give you a significant discount on the new part in exchange for returning the old starter.

Hope this helps...

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle with jackstands.
  3. Tag and disconnect the wiring at the starter.

  5. Unfasten the starter mounting bolts, then remove the starter from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Position the starter motor to the engine, then secure with the retaining bolts. Tighten the mounting bolts to 12-15 ft. lbs. (16-20 Nm) on starters with 3 mounting bolts and 15-20 ft. lbs. (20-27 Nm) on starters with 2 mounting bolts.
  2. If removed, tighten the idler arm retaining bolts to 28-35 ft. lbs. (38-47 Nm).
  3. Connect the starter cable to the motor. Tighten to 70-110 inch lbs. (8-12 Nm).
  4. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.

How to remove starter motor


  • Disconnect the cable from the truck battery's negative terminal. Raise and secure the F150 on jack stands.
  • Disconnect the wiring from the starter motor solenoid. Remove the hex nut holding the cable to the B+ terminal and remove the cable. Do the same with the cable connected to the S terminal.
  • Disconnect the starter's ground cable from its lower mounting stud by removing its bolt, then remove the mounting fasteners attaching the starter motor to the engine. The starter has two or three bolts depending on the engine, with the lower bolt being a stud bolt. Remove the starter motor.
