Question about Buick Roadmaster

1 Answer

There is a bar that is bolted on the frame underneath the starter on my 93 buick roadmaster and I can't seem to get to the nut of the bolt that holds the bar to the frame. I can turn the bolt head because it's right there but the nut is spinning and I can't get to it because it's in the frame.

You will need to use a wrench and slide into the frame and try to get it on the nut then remove the bolt and do the same to install the bar. if you cant get to nut this way then the only other way is to cut a hole in the frame to get a wrench on the nut.

On the a-frame of passenger side there is a black bar that comes off of it and its missing what seems like a bushing and bolt because it's not connected, what is this part so i can get one

that part is called a sway bar link, and consists of a long bolt, a spacer sleeve, 4 rubber bushings, 4 metal washers, and a nut. Your auto parts store should have this in stock, in the 10 to 20 dollar range or less.

Remove and replace Front Sway bar

Hello ggagne.
Here is the procedure.

  1. Raise and suitably support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the left tire and wheel assembly.
  3. Remove the pinch bolt from the lower intermediate steering shaft
  4. Loosen all insulator clamp attaching bolts.
  5. Place a jack stand under the center of the rear frame cross member.
  6. Remove the rear frame-to-body bolts.
  7. Lower the rear of the frame just enough to gain access to the stabilizer shaft.
  8. Remove the insulator clamp bolts and the clamps from the frame.
  9. Remove the insulators from the stabilizer bar.
  10. Remove the stabilizer bar links from the control arms.
  11. Pull the stabilizer shaft rearward.
  1. Insert the stabilizer shaft to the left side of the vehicle. Important: DO NOT tighten the stabilizer link nut at this time. The weight of the vehicle must be supported by the control arms such that you can obtain the vehicle design trim heights before tightening the link nut.
  2. Loosely install the stabilizer shaft link at the control arm.
  3. Install the insulators on to the stabilizer bar.
  4. Connect the insulator clamps to the frame.
    • Tighten the stabilizer shaft bracket bolts to 48 Nm (35 ft. lbs.) .
  5. Raise the frame into position while you guide the steering shaft onto the gear.
  6. Install the new frame-to-body attaching bolts.
  7. Remove the jack stand.
  8. Install the pinch bolt and tighten.
  9. Install the left tire and wheel assembly.
  10. Lower the vehicle.
  11. Support the weight of the vehicle by the control arms.
  12. Tighten the stabilizer link nut.
    • Tighten the stabilizer shaft link nut to 23 Nm (17 ft. lbs.)
There you are, I hope your job goes well.
Thank you for using FixYa.

How to replace a starter on a 1993 buick roadmaster

there is little space to unbolt the starter and then wiggle it around to drop it. Unbolting the crossmembers is a real pain, so don't consider unless you can get to the back side of each bolt. So. Get some nut/bolt remover and spray on the bolts and nuts that attach the exhaust pipe to the two header exhaust pipes. Be patient during this and hopefully you won't break a bolt while removing the nuts. Try to tap lightly on the nuts to loosen some. Have a socket wrench with an extension to reach . Or, better yet, have an impact wrench to use. The impact action of the wrench helps to loosen the nuts. Do this removal of both exhaust pipes from the headers. Remove the bolts that hold the starter in place, slide forward a little and drop. But, be sure to note how wires are attached and be sure to remove the positive battery cable from battery before starting. You have to do this from underneath, so support it safely. Can't say I would want to buy a rebuilt starter and have to do it all again. It would be nice to have some extra nuts and bolts on hand, but I don't know the sizes. If you break one. Take it to the parts store. Call the parts store and make sure they have the starter on hand before you start, unless time really doesn't matter on how long it takes to do this job. Take your starter with you to compare and to get a "core charge" counted toward the purchase. 93 roadmaster 5.7L

I need a diagram illustrating the location of the starter on a GM 3800 Series II Supercharged engine

I don't have a diagram of where the starter is located but's easy to find. It's located above the frame between the radiator and the engine block. its bolted to the engine block just above the frame. It has two bolts holding iit in place. You will need a 15mm socket and extension to remove the bolts. There is a 13 mm nut that holds the battery cable to the starter. Than there is a smaller wire that is held into place with an8mm nut. There is also a plastic cover that is attached to the transmission that can be removed with a 10mm socket. Infact you will have to remove this cover first before trying to remove the 15mm bolts. oh yeah make sure you jack the car up so you can see everything from underneath. use jack stands.

1993 buick roadmaster silnoyd missing.

The starter and solenoid are underneath the exhaust manifold on the passenger side. You need to raise the vehicle and remove this assembly from below. There are two large bolts which secure the starter to the engine block. There may or may not be shims placed between the starter and the block. DON'T LOSE THOSE SHIMS! There is also a bracket with a stud and nut that supports the front end of the starter. There may also be a heat shield to protect the starter from the hot exhaust manifold. DO NOT THROW THE HEAT SHIELD AWAY. If you do, your new starter won't last 6 months. The heat will destroy it. Once the starter is loose, lower it by hand. You will now have access to remove the two wires from the solenoid. These can be tricky to remove. If in doubt, have a professional do it.
To install, reassemble in reverse order.

I have a 1995 nissan pickup, 4 cylinder. Does the starter come out from the top right or below the truck on the right. I can't seem to get my hands on the bolts.

The starter has to be removed from the top through the right side of the engine. Removing the bracket holding the gas filter allows enough room for the starter and solenoid to pass through the opening. I had to use a 14 mm wrench instead of a socket to remove the bolts as there is no room for the socket wrench even with extensions.
