Easy fix my friend.

1. Unhook the battery
2. Raise and support the truck on jack stands.
3. The starter is located on the drivers side at the front of the tranny.
4. Grab an 8mm and a 13mm wrench.
5. Remove the power wires from the starter.
6. Remove the starter by removing the top bolt 9/16 i believe and the bottom nut. Also 9/16 or 5/8.
7. Carefully slide it out toward the front of the engine.
8. Installation is the same as removal.

Hope this helps.

1997 dodge ram wont start hot, starts fine in the cold but in hot weather needs the throttle pumped and sometimes even that wont do it


What is the condition of the starter ? Is this an engine hard to turn over problem when hot ? If so, the starter might be grounding out, this happens only when the casing is hot.

Starter will not work


Best way is to remove it, and take it for testing at any autoparts store. If defective, then you simply exchange for a rebuilt. Also make sure your battery cables to the starter-motor are not corroded
