Replacing the starter motor in a 1996 miata

Is this any easy enough task to do myself? I have purchased the starter motor, of course there are no instructions with it. If you have instructions I would be most grateful. Thanks.

Hi,

Depending on the version/edition of the MX-5, the starter motor would be on the rear end of the engine (passenger side) below the intake manifold. Initially, disconnect the battery/cable; next disconnect the start wire. Thereafter, remove the two (2) bolts for the intake manifold support bracket and remove the bracket. Remove one bolt on starter rear support bracket and the three (3) bellhousing flange bolts (two accessible from starter side while the other one is accessible from the bellhousing side). The starter is now free and may be taken out.

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.

1996 trooper, battery is good all the lights come on but it refuses to crank over or even attempt to crank over what do it do??


Probably your starter needs replaced. Not an easy task to drop it though since your exhaust pipe is probably in the way.

I had my local muffler shop cut the pipe an unbolt it from the exhaust manifold for me before changing the starter. After replacing the unit, I had them weld it back together. It was the only way to get the starter out. This was on a 1997 model.

1996 Isuzu Rodeo ran yesterday, will not start this morning. I turn the key and get a "click" from under the dash on the lower right side, that is all (I assume this is a relay or something). Thinking it...


If you are sure that your battery connection to the starter motor itself is good, then it's the solenoid on top of the starter motor. To replace it, you have to take out the starter motor and take it apart - not an entirely easy task. Alternatively, you can get a reconditioned starter motor which is a lot easier.

Replacing a starter


Replacing the starter on a 96 Avalon is incredibly simple. I did it in the parking lot of a store. Just bring your ratchet set and you will be good to go. I took out the old starter, had a friend bring me to autozone and I bought a new one. Its easy to locate, easy to remove and easy to install.

My 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo just stopped starting. All lights, fan, sensors work but engine does nothing when I turn it to start position. What is wrong? Please help.


Assuming that when you turn your key the motor doesn't even try to start.
To start the combustion motor, an electrical motor is used to give it inertia, there are 2 possibilities: one, this electrical motor is not getting the electrical power required, or two, the electrical starter motor is broken. For the first option, check cables all the way from your battery, trough the switch you open or close with your keys, trough a capacitor, to the motor. This motor is generally below or next to the combustion motor, their shafts are mechanically connected by gears. Only the positive pole goes all this way, the negative terminal of the electrical motor is connected to your car's chassis, and so does the battery's negative terminal. If all these connections are OK, then your electrical motor is gone, in which case you'd better buy a new one and replace it, because fixing it would not be an easy task. You can try also replacing the capacitor, which must be on the way between the electrical motor and the key switch, if this is broken, your car should be very weakly trying to start as if the battery was low.

I need to change the shoks of mi mazda miata i want do that by my self and i need the ide of reparations someone could help me?


First you should buy a do it yourself repair manual. Replacing shocks is a very easy procedure and usually only requires jack and one or two tools. A repair manual will tell you what tools you will need and instructions.

How do you take the starter off a 1996 honda passport


Yea I know. I hate doing starters in the car. Pretty much its just manuvering it around to get it to slide out. Once you get it disconnected.

It will have three bolts bolting it into the transmission. And then of course the two power bolts.
