If you can avoid taking the exhaust crossover off then do it, because if the exhaust is original then you are going to have problems with rusty bolts because of the intense heat. if you break one off or damage the threads it will be quite a job to fix it but do what you gotta do. The transmision can stay in place.

I have a 94 chevy s10 v6 vortech I had to remove the thru bolt on the motor mount on the passenger side then jack up the motor to get room to slide the starter back didnt have to lift to far just needed a little room, took me 13hrs in three days to get this figured out (NOT EASY) very hard to remove the thru bolt and get back in but well worth the effort, did have to remove the brace bar from the block to the bell housing and pry with a bar to lift motor from mount but they will separate and the weight of the motor will push them back together. Rough job so good luck.

It is possible to take out the starter without removing either piece, but it will give you more room to work with. it is easier to use a floor jack to help you hold up the alternator after removing two big screws. The jack will hold starter so that you can easily get to the nuts holding a couple of wires on the starter and solenoid. Good luck.

starter wont turn or engages the flext plate,flywheel and still wont turn engine over?if this is the case you have a seized up motor,but if it doesnt even click check signal wire from ignition switch for power when you turn the key to crank.if no power your ignition switch,park/neutral safety switch(clutch switch if manual trans) or wrongly installed wired could be the problem.

How do you remove the starter from a 1991 nissan pic up with 2.9 cc engine

I did not find the instructions for a 2.9 L engine per se, but the following should be good for many American models of the 1991 Nissan d21 Pickup truck: REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable at the battery, then disconnect the positive battery cable at the starter. Fig. 1: Starter removal on 4WD - 6-cylinder engine 86713015.gif
    Fig. 2: Starter removal on 2WD - 6-cylinder engine 86713016.gif

  2. On 4wd models with the 6-cylinder engine:
    1. Remove the front gravel shield.
    2. Detach the oil pressure switch connector.
    3. Drain the engine oil and remove the oil filter. CAUTION
      The EPA warns that prolonged contact with used engine oil may cause a number of skin disorders, including cancer! You should make every effort to minimize your exposure to used engine oil. Protective gloves should be worn when changing the oil. Wash your hands and any other exposed skin areas as soon as possible after exposure to used engine oil. Soap and water, or waterless hand cleaner should be used.
    4. Remove the exhaust manifold heat insulator.
    5. Remove the fuel tube retainer bolt.
  3. On 2wd models with the 6-cylinder engine:
    1. Remove the front right wheel.
    2. Remove the front gravel shield.
    3. Remove the exhaust manifold heat insulator.
    4. Remove the exhaust manifold.
    5. Detach the oil pressure switch connector.
  4. Unfasten the remaining electrical connections at the starter solenoid.
  5. Remove the two nuts holding the starter to the bell housing, then pull the starter toward the front of the vehicle and out. To install:
  6. Insert the starter into the bell housing, being sure that the starter drive is not jammed against the flywheel.
  7. Tighten the attaching nuts and secure all electrical connections to the starter assembly.
  8. Install all remaining components in reverse order of removal.
  9. Reconnect the battery cables. If applicable, refill and check the oil level. Check the starter assembly for proper operation.

I have several S10's from an 84 to a 99 which are all prone to both engine and trans failures. As either a trans or an engine went bad, I have kept them as parts trucks now I have a few that need...

the 2 wd and 4wd transmissions are not interchangeable. 95 - 2000 should be the same, 89 - 94 should be the same. check for an ID number on the trans pan, the newer ones should be 4L60E, the older ones could be 4L60 or 200R4. good luck!

My 2000 chevy s10 pickup doesn't want to shift

Check your master and slave, If your slave is not fully depressing the pressure plate it would be very hard to shift.

Low fluid would not cause this. However there is a bolt on the side of the trans that you remove and put your finger in to check the level. If you put your pinky in and no fluid comes out it is low.

The slave often goes on the chevy's. It is internal, you have to pull the trans to replace it.

Also a pressure plate that is collapsing can cause the same problem. You are pushing all the way down, but it is not releasing.
Hope this helps.

Chevy S10 Pickup Starter. Removed the two bolts

Just changed a starter in a 94 S10 4x4. The only way to remove the starter was to take the passenger side exhaust manifold off and bring the starter out that way. Installation the same in reverse. Hope this helps. Don
