I need to change the starter in my 2001 dodge neon


The starter is located under the car where the transmission and engine meet toward the front of the neon. The starter actually bolts up with face toward the transmission. You must get the car up on ramps or on a hoist to see the starter. This is just a general method; it is very hard to give words to describe some of the steps without pictures. Removal: Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. Raise vehicle on hoist. Remove starter bolts. Remove starter assembly. Disengage latch and remove solenoid connector from starter assembly. Remove battery positive connector from starter assembly. It is not necessary to remove the alternator output lead from the connector. Installation: Clean corrosion/dirt from the cable and wire terminals before installing wiring to the solenoid. Attach battery positive connector to starter. Ensure alternator output connector is snapped into the battery positive connector. Tighten the captive nut to 10 Nm (90 in. lbs.) . CAUTION: It is critical that the alternator output terminal be connected to the battery positive terminal of the starter solenoid, for proper operation of the charging and cranking systems. Install solenoid connector to starter. Ensure that latch is fully engaged. Position the starter face into transmission housing. Start bottom mounting bolt and thread in until bolt is snug. Attach ground cable to upper starter mounting bolt. Ensure the proper starter alignment before tightening the starter mounting bolts to 54 Nm (40 ft. lbs.) torque. Lower vehicle and connect negative battery cable.

I have a 2003 dodge neon sxt and i can locate the alternator but i dont see how to take if off please help


To remove the alternator you will need to raise the front of the car and block the rear wheels. Disconnect the negetive wire from the battery. Loosen the upper alternator adjustment boltnut. Remove the right front tire and the accessory drivebelt splash shield. Loosen the alternator lower mounting bolt. Remove the alternator drive belt and disconnect the electrical connectors from the alternator. Remove the upper and lower adjustment bolts and remove alternator. You will have to remove the alternator bracket when you lower the alternator down. Installation is the reverse of removal. Hope this will help you.

I have a 2001 plymouth neon. I need to replace the starter. do I need to remove the exhaust manifold to do this or can I do it from underneath the car


no!!! jack up the front pf the car more toward the passenger side. when you get under there you will see the metal bracket that is preventing the bottom strater bolt from being removed.take out all (5) bolts for that bracket and use some type of pry tool to remove it. when you get that removed you will be able to fully remove the bottom starter bolt,turn the starter upwards so you can get to the wireing and disconnect it also. after that reach your hand under the front of the car and manouver the starter down through the front of the car and the removal is done!!!!! Installation is the reverse!!

Replace lowerr right motor mount on dodge 2001


Yes you can. Just put the car on JACK STANDS, As you will need to raist the engine slightly with a jack to take the load off of the mount to remove it. Buy the new mount first, so you will see where the bolts go. BE safe and don't rely on a tire jack
