I am not sure if this will work on the Trooper and if not sorry but have you tried to jack up the car? this should open up a little more room that might just be enough to free up the starter. Beyond this trick you will need to remove the the strut or exhaust. If that's the case try removing only the lower strut attachment bolt. It may be enough to get the starter out without removing the exhaust.
Hope this helps.

    I did a little checking and found the same. However you should remember that any repair in a dealership will follow a standard set of steps. This is to for the purpose of standardizing cost and time estimates. It doesn't necessarily mean it's the only way to do the job. I would still try jacking it up first and I would also recommend the strut removal over t he exhaust if you can be certain it will give you the desired result. This will save on time and money in regards to the added gasket cost.

    Regardless which method you use good luck. Also if you need anything else please ask.

I have a Chev Aveo sedan LT. It makes a banging noise when I go over bumps underneath on the passenger side. What is causing this and how can it be fixed?

I would start by checking any loose exhaust. Check the struts and strut mounts. Check for any loose suspension componants.

My car smells like exhaust more than normal when I turn it on why.

As exhaust parts get older, the flex joints, and any moving seals wear and allow more fumes to leak.

Sometimes, a hose can start leaking related to the emission system allowing fumes to escape.

Usually a flex joint will develop a leak more rapidly if the motor mounts and torque struts allow the engine to move excessively.

You can start it cold, and with your hands around any sealing areas, should notice the exhaust leaking. Have a friend push a rag up against the tailpipe to restrict the flow, as you listen up front for leaks.
Good luck !

I was driving and my car started making a really loud rattle noise everytime i went over anything. now this just started happening today and i sounds like something is really loose underneath the front of...

It could be the exhaust mounts which are rubber and break over time. If you grab the tail pipe when it is not hot, can you easily move it up and down. If so you will have to get on the ground and look down the length of the exhaust to find the rubber mounts. Usually the top of the remains attached to the vehicle chassis hook or the exhaust mounts, which makes it easier to identify the connection point. The other possible problem is the strut or shock is broken. You will need to get under the car to look at the suspension or remove the wheel to do the same. Last, check the motor mounts if they are broken.

Need to find the loction of camshaft position sensor for BMW 325I

need more info. size of engine and year. You have an exhaust sensor and a intake if you have duel variable cams. The exhaust is located in front towards the top inbetween the radiator cap area on the engine. The intake is located on the intake side about where #1 cylinder is under the intake. Your going to most likely have to move the oil filter housing and the cam position motor out tof the way to access. Only replace the part with a dealer part. If you don't and the light does not go off you will be kicking yourself because you won't know if it was because of a inferior part. I went thru this with my 2000 528i

Solution for cars Exhaust hitting road bumps

It sounds like your springs and or struts are well worn out from probably about 12 years of holding up the weight of the car and its passengers. The added weight of the second person is pulling the car down that much more now that the suspension has worn out. I'm not familiar with a Punto but I bet its a small car, the smaller the car the smaller the suspension (unless its a Porshe) and they usually last about 50,000 to 70,000 miles before you start to notice a "soft" suspension, swaying in turns and bit of role as you take turns hard. Hope it helps.

I own a 2003 RX 300 and ws told that I needed new struts in the front. However, I only have 56,000 miles on the vehicle. Could this be true?

Here is how to tell if you have bad strut on ANY car. Go to the corner of the car with the suspected bad strut. Start pushing down on the car to get it moving up and down. Keep pushing to get it moving up and down pretty good and then push down one last time and stop. If the struts are good, your car will bounce up then down and then stop. If it keep moving more than that, the struts are bad.
