2002 intrepid 2.7 Im getting no crank from the starter and I dont hear the fuel pump kicking on when the ignition key is turned on, I do get power to the radio and dash, Ive checked fuses and replaced...

Under the hood, there should be a fuse block. Remove the cover and there will be a 20amp(i think) fuse that protects the fuel pump and starter circuit. I've run into this problem many times and every time it ends up being the starter that blows the fuse.

Need to know the location of the starter trying to explain to a 17 year old where it is and how to remove

It is on the bottom passenger side of the engine at the rear. Follow the large power wire from the battery and you will see it. It is round and has a small round solenoid (or Bendix) on it. Make sure to: 1)disconnect the battery, 2) remove the wires from the starter one set at a time and mark them so you don't get them mixed up. Remove the two bolts (5/8" I think) and pull the starter out. Replace the solenoid also.

I think the starter in my 1997 chevy blazer is bad. when i try to turn it over it tries to start for just a second, but then stops and begins to click. i used to have a problem with my battery posts...

Try removing the battery cables and boost the vehicle with another. If it starts, replace the battery. If it doesn't start check for any loose connections at starter and for power at starter. If you have power, remove starter and have it checked and replace if necessary.

Thought I had a dead battery but it does start after 5-15 attempts. Just a 'tick' sound until it finally catches. Is this the starter?

Yes it ticks when battery can not turn the starter

just replace starter But charge your battery since it has been worked very hard

What do i need to do to replace a starter in my 97 nissan sentra?

first unhook the battery, remove the air cleaner box and ducting to the throttle body, you will see the 2 bolts for the top. you will then need to go under the vehicle(make sure the vehicle is properly supported), and you will see the bracket between the engine block and the intake manifold, remove it.the starter wire does not get removed from the starter, it has a connector about 4-5 inches away. disconnect it there. disconnect the battery cable from the starter, remove the last bolt and it will come right out. all in all it takes about 30 minutes. most places will charge a "core charge" on a product like this. dont be suprised, however when you return the old starter you will get your money back. let me know if you need further assistance.

My car clicks a few times before it will start,

The contacts for the solenoid on the starter have worn down. This is extremely common on Toyotas.

Disconnect the battery negative terminal.

Remove the 12mm battery cable nut from the starter and unclip the signal wire

Unbolt the two 14mm starter bolts and remove the starter.

On the solenoid, remove the 3 8mm bolts and remove the trapezoidal cover

Pull out the plunger and spring

Remove the 12mm and 14mm nuts on the sides of the housing and slide out the bolts.

Remove the two copper contacts and take to Toyota to be matched up with new contacts at the parts department.

Reinstall in reverse order.

No more clicks!

I think the solinoid is bad ,it wont engage into

it's 1 of those jobs that you probably want a mechanic to do unless you can see your starter
f it hangs off the back of the motor then have a mechanic change it as the exhaust is probaby right over top of it abd it has to go downwards and can only be accessed from the botom
if it is on the front of your motor then disconect the baterie and look for 2-3 nolts then hold the starter to the motor or trany
after you remove te\he bolts remove the wires dont be afraid to make a diagram of the wires
heck use masking takpe and tie the wires that go together together and mark them usualy ther are 2 terminals 1 for main power and 1 for the starter circut and the starter circut is usualt red and a lighter guage wire

1991 nissan stanza starter problems

Hi Jim.

When you turn the key, you should at least hear the starter solenoid click. When you turn the key the ignition switch sends 12 volts to the Starter solenoid ( really just a relay). The Solenoid closes and applies 12 volts (at a high current) to the starter motor to crank the engine. If you have a way to measure voltage, you should get 12 volts at the small terminal on the starter solenoid. The solenoid is mounted on the top of the starter motor.If you get 12 volts but no cranking, the solenoid is not working. If you get 12 volts and the starter doesn't crank the starter is defective. At this [point take a small hammer and tap the starter motor, not hard, just medium. Sometimes this will cause the starter motor to catch next time you turn the key. Best bet is to remove the starter motor (with solenoid attached) and take it to an Auto Zone type store where they can check it out for you. Be dure you disconnect the ground terminal of the battery before you attempt to remove the starter motor.

Hope this helps Good luck loringh PS Please leave a rating for me if appropriate Thks
