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

SOURCE: 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.

Trace the positive lead from the battery. The starter will be towards the bottom of the engine where the transmission mounts to the engine.

SOURCE: how to replace water pump on 1993 buick roadmaster

use a serpentine wrench and remove the belt. Remove the large fan. The water pump is right behind the big fan. Get a new one, use a gasket adhesive to help hold the gasket in place and place at least one bolt through the pump before you put it against the motor. Torque the bolts properly. Refill the antifreeze. IF it runs hot, bleed the radiator of trapped in the system.

Where can I order horn switches for a 1993 Buick Roadmaster


You can basically use any ones that you want. They are only one wire. You may have to modify the plug, but it is the same type plug used on speakers. You may want to check them before you spend the money. Run 12 volts to the plug and ground the body. If they work, you have other problems. Most likely the plug and spring in the steering wheel.

Where is the fusible link?


There is a black wire that goes from the battery + terminal to the battery junction block (not the one that goes to the starter solenoid). A red wire runs from the BJB to FUSIBLE LINK A (14 GA-RUST).

There is a PPL (purple?) wire that runs from terminal A of the ignition switch to the S terminal of the starter solenoid. If you turn the ignition switch to START, the starter should, well, start. If not, the solenoid is ng.

Where is the started located on the 1993 buick roadmaster? The car will not start?


from the driver seat , it is on right side of engine, at bottom, in front of the trans bell housing. If it clicks fast when you turn the key, tap on the solenoid and the starter. If it has single click , probably starter problem or solenoid, replace both.
