Not difficult at all. Disconnect the wiring and unbolt the old starter, pull off and replace, put the bolts back on and tighten, Re-Connect the wiring and you are in business...easy said, the hard part may be access, these are not always easy to get to, involves some feeling around etc. A good idea to disconnect your battery before starting this proceedure. Good Luck!

Starter seems to be out, just getting a click when I try to turn it over. How hard is it to change?


You will most likely have to take som plastic covers off of the underside to get at the starter (this is the hard part). After that there are a couple nuts connecting the wires to the starter and two bolts holding the starter to the engine block. Really not hard at all, just a little difficult to access.

Starter makes a screeching noise sometimes just after the motor starts


Replace the starter before it ruins the flywheel. You have a worn out drive that applies to the flywheel. Flywheels are very very hard to change, in fact you can change 10 or 15 starters in the same time changing one flywheel

My starter turns low. i checked every thing the batter is good, the charging is good, what is wrong? if i change the stater is it hard to put on?


sounds like we need a starter motor current draw test to evaluate ur starters condition.this can b done at any shop w a charging an starting system analyzer.if ur stater is drawing more than250 amps to325a or even higher amperage draw ur starter motor is bad..on a northstar the starter is under ur intake manifold,not an easy job,if u have the other caddy motor then starter can b changed from under car. not too bad to change,on a lift of course

2000 GMC Jimmy turns over hard like it is the battery, but changed out the battery and starter, still no change, turns over hard maybe 2-3 turns and then that's it.


you may need to shim the starter it may be binding on the the flywheel because its not lining up evenly.sort of like drilling a hole at the wrong angle and trying to straighten it while your still drilling.or its possible your flywheel is warped.hope that helps

How do I change the starter in a 2000 Nissan?


you will have to remove the battery, the air intake assembly and air filter housing for access to the starter which goes into the flywheel on the transmission to the right of the motor when looking under hood from front of car. you will probably need a variety of extensions and a universal joint for your sockets will help reaching the mounting bolts easier.
