If your going to be removing all of this I recommend you get the Haynes repair manual on the vehicle so you have the illustrations and directions for dis-assembly and assembly of the starter. The starter should be located on the bottom right of the engine where the Transmission attaches.

How do i replace the starter in a 1999 ford explorer?


Disconnect the negative battery cable. If it has automatic ride control, make sure it is turned off before you raise the vehicle. Remove the starter solenoid cover, if it has it. Disconnect the large cable from the starter motor and the solenoid connections. Remove the starter mounting bolt and nut and remove the starter from the engine. Reinstall in the reverse order.

98 ford expedition xlt,when i turn key switch on, all it does is make a load clicking sound, battery is new and fulley charged


The Solenoid Switch that controls the starter is bad. If you can get someone to help you. Have them turn the key while you listen under the hood for where ehe clicking is comming from. 2 different Solenoids were used on this model one built on the starter the other mounted on the finder well near the battery. Repair is simple if replacing the Solenoid mounted on the finder well. If it is the starter mounted unit the starter will have to be removed. Most auto parts stores will allow you to use the Chiltons manuel in the their store to lookup removal instructions.Auto Zone, Advanced Auot parts PEP BOYS O'Reillys. All do this as a free service.
Hope this helps

Where is the starter located on 1994 ford explorer. is it easly accessable?


Hello gmboswell: My name is Roger and I will help. You will find the starter located on the passenger side of the motor. You will need a 13mm.socket and extension to remove the three bolts. Two are easy to see the third one is back between the starter and the oil pan. You will also need a 8mm wrench to remove the small solenoid wire. Really is not a very hard job.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the quality of the way I know the answer was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya.Roger

    Remove starter on a 2001 ford explorer sport


    Gather the necessary tools needed such as wrenches, sockets, screwdriver and pliers.
    Place the vehicle on ramps or jack up the front and support with jack stands. It is very important to block the rear wheels to keep the car stationary during this procedure. Never work under a vehicle not supported properly
    Make sure ignition is OFF and the remove the negative (ground) battery cable from the battery.
    Note the location of all wires before removal to make for easier connection.
    Remove the large starter cable going to the battery at the starter location.
    Remove any other wires attached to the solenoid.
    Remove the starter attaching bolts (usually there are two or three).
    Remove any supporting brackets that holds the starter.
    Drop the starter down away from the car. On some cars you may have to turn the wheels to one side, remove the idler arm, remove or loosen transmission oil cooler lines, exhaust pipes, or ground straps to give you enough clearance to get the starter motor away from the car.
    Install the new starter in the reverse order of removal.
    Reconnect battery cables and other wires to solenoid.
    Place old starter in the new starter box for proper core return.

    03 explorer sport starter


    HI, please refer to the guide below for thorough instruction on replacing your starter.

    Remove the Malfunctioning Starter Step1 Park your Ford Explorer on a level surface, activate the emergency brake and place blocks behind the back tires for safety. Disconnect the negative battery cable with a terminal puller. Raise the front end of the car with a jack for easier access to the starter. Step2 Grasp the plastic shell of the hard-shell connector at the S-terminal and pull straight off, without pulling the wire. If damage occurs, replace those items as well. Step3 Detach all wires connected to the starter, including the ground wire on the starter motor bolt stud, starter cable and the solenoid push-on connector. Some Ford Explorer starter motors have a self-threading bolt holding the starter cable in place. Step4 Remove the starter mounting bolts, starting with the upper bolt, and place them in the jar for safe keeping until later. Then remove the malfunctioning starter from the engine. Step5 Take your malfunctioning starter to the parts store with you. Aftermarket distributors remanufacture most of the starters they sell, so you can likely obtain a partial credit toward your new starter by exchanging your old one. Be sure that you take care not to damage the starter in transit, because the better condition it is in, the more you can get for it. Step6 Purchase a replacement starter that has the same or higher cranking capacity (power rating) as the original starter in your Ford Explorer. Also, match the bolt patterns, drive gears and electrical connections. Your owner's manual may list specifications or the auto parts technician will help you determine them. Download a free owner's manual at Ford Fleet. Install the New Starter Step1 Position the new starter in the correct location and install with the mounting bolts. Torque the mounting bolts between 15 to19 foot pounds (21 to 27 Nm). Step2 Push the solenoid connector straight on to the starter and listen for a click to be certain of proper installation. Step3 Attach starter cable nut to the B-terminal of the solenoid. Tighten the nut between 80 to 123 inch pounds (9 to 14 Nm). Reconnect the additional starter wiring and replace the red safety cap. Step4 Lower the vehicle to the ground and reconnect the negative battery cable. Disconnecting the battery cable may cause the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to lose information. After testing to make sure the vehicle starts, drive at least ten miles for the PCM to relearn its adaptive strategies.

    Please rate and god bless.
