Yes. When was the last time you had the starter changed? Has anyone crawled under the vehicle to check for a loose starter? If the starter does not engage it may be the starter solenoid ( the thing that drives the gears into contact before the starter actually turns ). This might not be ramming the gears together properly and that will cause the grinding noise, as well as an intermittent start.
All it shows i "Oldsmobile" for your vehicle, so it will depend on which vehicle you have , but if you have located the starter whether it be on the under side of the motor, or side driver, it should be only 2 or 3 bolts to remove, and you will have to disconnect your battery before removal. The starter will have either a plug, or a nut with wires attached depending on the year make and model, but its a pretty cut and dry pull and replace procedure. Once its out, place the new one in the same way, put your wires back together, and reconnect your battery. Pretty simple. Thanks.
suggest a bad starter or a bad connection to starter, sometimes you can tap on the starter with a hammer and get it to start one last time.make sure cars in park with emergancy brake on!! have some hold key over in start position and you tap on starter with hammer to see if it even clicks, sometimes they will either click or even start, depaending on how bad the colenoind is on the starter. be very careful when tapping as not to cross out and hit the positive cable on the starter. hope this helps!!
Pretty much a simple job...Make sure you have any security codes and radio re-set info before you begin...disconnect the battery cable from the battery (+) . unbolt starter from the engine, disconnect the wires on the starter (mark their positions if you need to). Reverse procedure to install. Of course, you have tested the system and have determined that the starter is actually bad, correct?
Starter should be pretty simple but they always put them down below in hard reach areas and pain the *** get out back in . Only has few connection dis connect the battire so you dont shock the hell out of your self. It be two main bolts that hold into place and few nuts hold wires on. Get hanes book it help you out some. Hope this helps you out give thumbs up if it helps you out
I'm assuming the starter is not turning the engine...check the small wire on the starter for 12v with key turned to start. If no voltage there, check ignition switch and neutral start switch. (voltage in, voltage out)
Your starter needs a "makeover". try to clean or change the brushes in the starter.
a cheap and simple solution, is to make the cables on the starter longer, and attach them to a button in you car. If you choose that solution, you just have to turn on the ignition, and then push the button you have connected the starter cables to.
