Question about 1987 Pontiac Fiero

1 Answer

The starter on my 1987, 4 cylander, pontiac Fiero is not working. Power goes to it, but it won't work. I need to know how to change this. Is it possible to do myself? What is the best way to access the starter to change it. I basically need to know what to do since I am not the best car-savvy person.

If it's not spinning when battery voltage is applied, it will most likely need to be replaced.

  1. Jack up rear of car.
  2. Disconnect negative battery terminal.
  3. Put car on jack stands.
  4. Laying under the car from the rear, the starter will be on the drivers side towards the front of the car. (Looks like a metal can, has I believe 2 bolts holding it to the engine.)
  5. Disconnect all the wires going to the starter.
  6. Remove the bolts holding it to the engine.
  7. It is HEAVY, be careful not to drop it on yourself.
  8. There should be shims between the starter and the engine. DO NOT LOSE them, and remember where they were so you can reinstall them on the new starter. ENGINE/STARTER damage can occur if not reinstalled!
  9. If you have another vehicle take the starter with you to an Auto Parts store, most of them will test the part for free. If it is bad, you already have it there so you won't have to pay a core charge.
  10. Reverse procedure to reinstall.
