Locating, removing and replacing starter motor on a 2000 hyundai sonata v6 (2.5 or 2.7 I believe) automatic


The starter is located below the exhaust manifold on the LH side of the engine (side facing the radiator). It is held in place by two 14mm bolts on the transmission side. Be sure to disconnect the battery before you attempt to remove the starter.

Where do i find the starter on a 1991 Cadillac fleetwood 2 dooir coupe with a 4.9 liter engine front wheel drive


Hello: The starter is towards the drivers side on the bottom of the the engine in front. There is a black plastic shield that covers the rear portion of the starter. Under the plastic cover is 2 15mm bolt heads. On the front of the starter is a bracket, it is held to the starter with a 10mm nut and to the engine block with a 13mm bolt. the large cable attached to the starter solenoid is a 15mm and the smaller wire is a 8mm. Disconnect the negative battery cable before attempting this job. Its sort of a trick to get the starter out once all the bolts and wires are disconnected. Make sure you completely remove the bracket from the front of the starter before attempting to remove the starter from the engine.

I need to replace a 2001 hyundai tiburon starter


Hi, Disconnect car battery.
Remove cover from air intake. Remove Filter.
Remove Filter intake housing (3 inner bolts) and large hose at the furthest screw collar. (This is important as you will need to reach the bolts to the starter by reaching from the top down via that location)
Remove the starter/ acceleration cable (1 bolt at the end of the cable, 2 bolts at the guide point screwed intot the engine block)
THE STARTER IS LOCTED AT THE BACK OF THE ENGINE WITH ONLY 2 BOLTS HOLDING IT IN PLACE
Remove the 2 bolts about half way with a socket wrench, remove the bolt sthe remining way with hand or open end wrench. (This is necessary especially on the lower bolt as there is liited work space.)
Take hold of the the starter using a partially blind reach and patially pull it out slightly turning it around so you can see the connectors.
Remove connectors........ Remove clip, the the bolt that holds the positive cable.
You can now fully remove the starter.
Take it 2 the local auto parts to have it tested. Have them test it 4 to 5 "bumps" as when mine was initially tested it worked fine but after 2 to 3 more attempts it froze and would operate.
To reinstall reverse procedure
Take care

How to put a starter in a 2002 malibu


1st remove POSITIVE cable from the battery. Then remove the wring from the starter. Remove the (2) bolts that are holding the starter to the engine and remove the dtarter. Replace with new starter and replace bolts. Tighten to about 60fpt or "very tight." after you have the bolts retightened, relace the wires to the starter. Be SURE to clean the contact points where the wires attach to the starter as they may be corroded. After you have the wires re-attached, replace the positive lead to the battery and test the system by attempting to start the engine. If this fails go back and make sure you have good contact with the wires. IF for some reason this is not working, check the positive lead to the starter with a testlight or ohmeter for power. Be sure that the lead TO THE BATTERY is hot on the strter end. You should be okay folowing these easy steps.

How would I go about removing and installing the starter on a 1993 altima manual?


Go to your nearest auto parts store and buy a Chilton or Haynes book for guidance. Best $20 you'll be glad you spent.

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.
To install:
  1. Position the starter into place and secure it with the front bracket bolt and nut. Torque the two mounting bolts to 25-35 ft. lbs.
CAUTION If shims were removed, they must be replaced to ensure proper pinion-to-flywheel engagement.

  1. On engines with a solenoid heat shield, attach the bracket to the starter. Install the bracket to the starter and the two mounting bolts. Install the front bracket upper bolt.
  2. Connect all wiring to the starter solenoid and tighten the nuts.
  3. Lower the vehicle.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.
