The starter is located on the drivers side of the engine compartment, just inside the rear of the inner fender well. ---------- Its not very easy to replace starter.Still the procedure is as follows if you want to do it yourself.---------- Park your car on a level surface.Open the hood. Disconnect the black, negative battery cable.Raise the front of the vehicle using a floor jack and safely support it on 2 jack stands.

  • Remove the starter motor heat shield from underneath the vehicle (driver side) using a wrench or ratchet and socket.You have to drop the lead pipe. Then take off the heat sheild on the wiring harness by the lead pipe and the heat shield on the lead pipe.
  • Disconnect the battery cable from the starter solenoid using a wrench,then remove the second wire connection on the solenoid using a wrench.

  • Remove the two starter mounting bolts using a ratchet, socket, ratchet extension and universal joint to give yourself extra clearance if necessary.

  • Work the starter motor out of the engine compartment and away from the vehicle.

  • Set the new starter and solenoid assembly in place and install the two mounting bolts.

  • Connect the battery cable and wire to the back of the starter solenoid; install the heat shield and lower the vehicle.

    This is the procedure.You can follow it.

    98 isuzu trooper parked vehicle now will not start , batty ok clicks, lights everything else works, no problems before, think it is starter but could it be relay ?

    If you are getting a clicking sound when you turn the key then power is getting to the starter so there is no need to worry about a relay. For some reason there just isn't enough. Check and clean your wire and cable ends free of corrosion and make sure they are all tight. It could easily be that simple. It could also be that one of the wires down at the starter is not making good contact with the terminal end,so give them all a tug to make sure.

    If this is all good then I would say you are in the market for a new starter and solenoid. Hope this helps.

    How do i remove cv axle for a 98 isuzu trooper

    Go to my profile I have just explained how to change a cv boot on a Trooper. The axle needs to be taken out to change the boot so the same solution. What you call an axle I have refered to as a drive (short for driveshaft) It takes a lot of explaining so save me a lot of writing if you read the solution I gave for changing the CV boot. Cheer's

    Starter problems?

    I just had to replace the starter on mine and you have to cut the exhaust pipe off to remove the starter. Take the 3 nuts off where the exhaust is attached to the manifold then using a sawzall I cut it in the straight section after the bend so it could sleeved and welded back with ease, once the pipe is out of the way the starter will just about fall out. Bad design by Isuzu. Perhaps some sort of pay back if you know what I mean.
