    I have a 1992 chevy lumina 3.4L engine and I had to replace the starter. I am putting the starter in and I need to know how many wires to hook up? My dad thinks there's a wire missing.

    Dual overhead cam (euro)?

    the small purple wire will go to the small terminal on the starter. there should be 3-4 other wires that attached to the large terminal of the starter.

    How do you remove a starter from a 95 gmc jimmy

    Disconnect the battery first . look on pasenger side of motor close to transmission . you should see it next to the oil pan. on top is a part that looks like a mini starter thats the bendix with a big battery cable and small wires . lable and remove the wires . Should be two bolts 15mm or 9/16 , remove these but be carefull as when the last one is removed the starter will fall . on some models there may also be a small support brace that will be needed to be removed . Check the new starter with the old in shape and size . Also check the teeth count on the starter . It's always wise to change the bendix and the starter as a unit . reassyemblly is backwards of pulling the starter . Hope this helps you.

    When removing starter, note if any shims are used between the starter and mounting surface. If shims are found, reinstall in original locations.If starter is noisy during cranking, remove one .015 inch double shim or add one .015 inch single shim to the outer bolt. If starter makes a high pitched whine after engine start, add .015 inch double shims until noise ceases.

    Disconnect battery ground cable and raise and support vehicle. Remove starter braces, shields or other components that may hinder starter removal.
    Support starter and remove mounting bolts.
    Lower starter and disconnect solenoid wires and battery cable.
    Remove starter from vehicle.

    There you are, remember to use safety glasses to keep your vision protected.
    Use proper safety stands and wheel chocks to support the vehicle while under it.

    Take care.
