It is at the back of the engine, where it attaches to the bellhousing (transmission). It is at the bottom of the block, just above the oil pan, usually on the right-hand side of the car (between the right front wheel and the firewall). You need to be under the car to see it, it is a round metal can about four inches in diameter and about 8 to 12 inches long. There is one big (battery cable) wire attached to it, and there may be one or two smaller wires as well.
Disconnect the battery ground cable before you attempt to remove the starter, as the big cable usually goes directly to the positive battery terminal, and is live even when the engine is off.

1980 ford f-250-5.8L-80k miles-replaced battery, starter, starter solenoid, ran great for week or two, now when I start it, engine turns over and runs, but occasionally starter sticks, and just won't turn...


Remove the small wire from the solenoid and hook up the battery. If the starter engages the solenoid is stuck. If the solenoid does not engage the starter with the small wire removed, check the small wire for a short to power.

Startup problems, at first no clicking or nothing 3rd time engine turned over but there was a high pitch wining i think from the starter itself pls help, Chef KB


It sounds like the starter solenoid has gone bad, Best thing to do is just to replace the whole starter. The starter solenoid is mounted on the starter, but to go through all that trouble to remove the starter, might as well replace the whole thing. Auto Zone carries the starter for your car and can give you the step by step instructions to get the job done with common tools. Good luck and when removing the old starter, take pictures with your cell phone to reference the wires when re-installing the new starter.

Will not krank makes wield noise not the battery


does it make like a kink noise when you turn the key? if so eith your starter is stuck or needs to be replaced. if it is stuck you might want to replace it anyways. but usually you can take a hammer and SLIGHTLY tap on the bottom of the starter and knock it loose. have someone in the van so they can turn the key..... if it turns over than have the starter replaced so this doesn't happen again. usually this happens when the starter is weak.

Need to check the Starter but i don't know were to find the Starter?


Hi,

The starter is usually at the rear of the engine mounted on the bell housing before the transmission. Best is to follow the big battery cable (not the ground -). It would look something like this.

In the picture below, the upper portion is the starter solenoid while the one below it is the actual starter.

This of course assuming that all other vital components of the car are working.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Renault 1.5 DCi -Starting problems


Hi,

The ticking sound is the solenoid striking the high current switch to engage the starter. If the starter motor will not crank the engine, it is possible that the battery is under charge or the starter motor would not turn. In some extreme cases, the reason that the starter motor will not turn is because the engine has seized. To determine whether it is the starter motor or the solenoid, you can try jumping the two big terminals of the solenoid to apply straight +12 to the starter motor. If it cranks, then it is the solenoid, if not then it would be the starter motor itself. Of course pls have the battery checked and/or fully charged.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Hi,

Possibly any of three (2) possibilities:
1. battery and charging system;
2. starting system.

The battery might not be charging properly and therefore does not have sufficient power to start the car and/or looses its charge (discharges) by itself.

The starter system is initiated at the ignition switch when the key is turned to start. At this point, the ignition switch then provides +12VDC to a starter relay (if the vehicle has got one) but more often straight to the starting solenoid. The relay is but a remote switch with slightly higher amperage capacity. The starter relay then engages and supplies +12VDC to the staring solenoid. The starting solenoid then performs two (2) functions. It provides the switching action (hundreds amps) from the battery heavy cable to the actual starter motor. The solenoid likewise pushes a small pinion gear along the shaft of the starter motor to engage the ring gear. The ring gear is of course on the edge of the flywheel which in turn is attached to the crankshaft.

Starter system problems could be corrected by:
1. check battery, battery cables and connections;
2. charge the battery if required;
3. clean brushes and guides of brush holders of the starter motor;
4. clean the commutator and commutator segments;
5. check/replace the armature or field coils if determined to be defective;
6. in some extreme cases it could be the drive pinion or the flywheel gear ring is defective.
7. often it is the big switch that the solenoid activates that looses contacts causing no +12V internally to the motor.
8. Most likely would be a defective starter relay or the IGN switch itself. Relative to this, you might try and check the connectors/terminals and electrical joints.

In the picture below, the upper portion is the starter solenoid while the one below it is the actual starter.

Given the amount of work to overhaul a starter, you might consider just replacing it.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
