Try putting the bolts back in finger tight and tap the ignition to turn the motor over A LITTLE.this should loosen it up. and make sure you check that you have all the bolts out. take your fingers and feel to make sure you have all the bolts out. and if the starter is completely bad, try twisting it.

The starter on my 1997 f150 5.4 4x4 will not come off, i have already takin to bolts off but it wont budge

There are three bolts holding it to the bell housing. The top bolt is hard to see and difficult to get a socket on, have you removed all three? Try spraying wd40 where it mates to engine.

How to remove starter on 1997 ford f150

Welcome to Fixya

Here's the procedure:

  • 1Raise the front end of the F150 off the ground with the floor jack. Place the two jack stands under the front portion of the F150's frame and then lower the truck onto the jack stands.

  • 2

    Open the hood and disconnect the negative battery cable end from the battery using the battery wrench. Push the cable off to the side where it can't accidentally contact the battery during the repair process.

  • 3

    Climb under the front passenger side of the F150 with the socket set. Locate the starter, which bolts to the side of the engine, where the transmission bell housing meets the back side of the engine block.

  • 4

    Unbolt the starter ground wire and wiring harness using the socket set. Move the wires aside.

  • 5

    Hold the body of the starter with one hand while removing the two starter mounting bolts with the other, using a socket set to do so. Never let the weight of the starter bear down on the loose bolts.

  • 6

    Pull the starter out by hand once you have removed both of the mounting bolts. Compare the old starter to your replacement, making sure they are physically identical before proceeding with the installation of the replacement unit.

  • 7

    Hold the replacement starter in position and thread the mounting bolts through the starter flange and into their mounts. Tighten them down with the socket set. Remember to never let the weight of the starter hang on the loose bolts.

  • 8

    Attach the ground wire and starter wiring harness in reverse of disconnection.

  • 9

    Lower the F150 off the jack stands with the floor jack and then reconnect the negative battery cable using the battery wrench.

    What combinations of sockets are used to remove 3 bolt on a starter on a ford f150 pickup

    I just replaced the starter on my 2001 F 150 and had to use a 13 mm socket with a swivel and 3 long extensions. I reached the top and side bolts by going through the wheel well. You have to stick your head in over the tire to see the top bolt, but it was pretty easy to reach it with this combination. The side bolt I could either reach it from under the truck or through the wheel well, through the wheel well seemed easier using the swivel and extensions

    Starter removal on a 1997 ford f-150

    Disconnect the negative cable from the battery. Disconnect the wires on the starter. Remove the 3 bolts securing the starter. Most likely you will need a few extensions and wobble sockets to get your ratchet out near the fan or front of the wheel well to get the top 2 bolts out.

    97 ford 150 4x4 starter replacement is there a web page to show this so i can get it done its cold and dont wana mess around

    It's really not to hard except for the third bolt on top of the starter next to the block.

    1. Disconnect the battery
    2. Go under the truck on passenger side and unbolt battery cable at the starter. Thats all wires on the starter
    3. Unbolt starter off trans housing. You will see the first two bolts the third one on top next to the block will take alittle time just hard to get to.
    4. Bolt on top you will have to use extensions and go in from the passenger side motor mount area in the fornt and slide it through the opening of the motor mount to get to it. Extension length about 16" long.
    5. Once you get it off replace the starter.
    6. I would not reinstall the third bolt next to the motor it really is useless. Just another way of keeping you from working on your truck or car.
