On the 01 Aurora (gen 2) the starter in under the intake manifold. You need to remove the fuel rails and the intake to get to it. Actually not too bad of a job to do.

Car will not start - no clicking sound when providing ignition, wipers and lights worked fine. Mechanic started it with external starter - says its a starter motor problem - need another opinion.


Don't you trust your mechanic ? If he's any good he would have done a voltage drop test on the starting system . This test would eliminate connections an battery cables as the problem . Leading to the conclusion the starter is bad . Any lights like anti theft lit ? SECURITY , Immobilizer On the instrument cluster . Starter Voltage Drop

How do you remove the starter from a 1995 Isuzu Trooper? I need to know EXACTLY how to do it. I know it is on the drivers side of the engine, but still cannot even see it to remove it. Am I missing...


First, make sure you really need a new starter. Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5973094-starter_replace . Let me know if you have more questions.

Are you looking from under the car? Here is a picture of where the starter should be:

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle on jackstands.
  3. Label and disconnect the battery and starter control wires from the starter.
  4. If equipped, remove the starter bracket and/or heat shield.
  5. Remove the starter-to-engine mounting bolts.
  6. Lower the starter from the engine. If any shims are present, keep them for reinstallation purposes.

To install:
  1. Install the starter and shims, if equipped, to the engine. Tighten the mounting bolts to 30-34 ft. lbs. (39-44 Nm).
  2. Install the starter bracket and/or heat shield, if equipped.
  3. Reconnect the electrical connectors to the starter.
  4. Lower the vehicle.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.
  6. Start the vehicle to make sure the starter functions correctly.

Starter is dead.


Hi,
It does sound like a starter shorted out on you. You can remove the starter and have it checked... I think Autozone will do it for free. Plus if you needed a new starter, they'd want a core exchange anyway and you'd already have it in hand. Don't forget to disconnect your batery before you begin this operation!
Hope this helped... Good luck!

The starter housing or bolts break whenever trying to start. I first had a problem with the starter making the whining sound that usually indicates the Bendix is bad. I took my 1996 Tahoe in to a local...


Wow it sounds like that they are not shiming the starter. On general motors products a new starter has to be shimmed, so that it lines up correctly with the flywheel. This is what is causing the flywheel/starter bolts to break and the noise you are hearing. Its not a hard process, just time consuming probably why it has not been done.
Sorry. Good luck! Dont forget to rate. Thanks, James
