The steps involved are :-

1. Disengage the solenoid wiring connector, then the battery positive (B+) nut and wire from the starter motor

2. Remove the 3 starter motor-to-transaxle bellhousing mounting bolt.

3. Remove the starter motor from the vehicle

4. After removing the starter motor, examine the teeth of the flywheel for excessive wear or damage. Repair if necessary

5. If the old starter is going to be re-installed, check the condition of the pinion gear teeth. Replace the starter if the pinion gear shows excessive wear or damage

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the front of the vehicle securely on jackstands.
  3. Disengage the solenoid wiring connector from the terminal. This connection may be held in place by a retaining nut, or it could be a push-in connector.
  4. Remove the B+ nut and wire from the starter motor terminal.
  5. Remove the starter motor-to-transaxle bellhousing mounting bolts.
  6. Remove the starter from the vehicle. If equipped, remove the starter motor spacer.
To install:
  1. If equipped, hold the starter motor spacer in position.
  2. Install the starter motor into position on the vehicle.
  3. Install the starter motor-to-transaxle bellhousing mounting bolts. Tighten the mounting bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
  4. Engage the solenoid wiring connector onto the starter terminal.
  5. Connect the B+ wire and tighten the retaining nut to 90 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  6. Lower the vehicle.
  7. Connect the negative battery cable.
  8. Verify starter motor operation.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hello sound.

They came with 2 engines, a 3.0 and a 3.3 in 2000.
This is the procedure for the 3.3. The 3.0 is similar.
The starter is mounted at the lower front of the engine, it's hard to see from the top.
You have to do it from underneath.

Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
Hoist and support vehicle on safety stands.

Will a chrysler engine go into a chevy truck

It would certainly be much easier to stay with a GM drive train.
Everything the Chrysler setup touches would need to be modified.
Wiring, exhaust, cooling, even the driveshaft. And that work would make the truck worth much less than if it had a stock drive train.

1997 chrysler sebring jxi no start

Do head lights stay on (bright) while trying to crank starter? If not, starter motor isn't getting enough current, OR engine is locked. Is there current getting through the solenoid to starter motor? Check the ground connection between the engine and chassis as well as battery and chassis.

How do i replace the starter on a 98 chrysler sebring lxi

2.5L (VIN N) Engine
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Most vehicles will require the removal of the front exhaust pipe. Use penetrating oil on the fasteners to ease removal.
  3. Disconnect the starter motor electrical connections.
  4. Remove the starter motor mounting bolts and remove the starter.

tecnovative_68.gif To install:
  1. Clean both surfaces of the starter motor flange and the rear plate. This is important since the starter grounds through its case and the transaxle flange to which it attached. Some remanufactured starters may have paint on these areas which should be cleaned off before installation. Install the starter motor onto the transaxle and secure with the retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts to 20-25 ft. lbs. (26-33 Nm).
  2. Connect the electrical harness connectors to the starter.
  3. Connect the negative battery cable and check the starter for proper operation.

I have a 2001 Chrysler voyger that is having problems starting. It makes all the noises like its is going to turn over but just can't quite get there. It has been serviced and had 3 spark plugs replaced....

On some cras the spark plugs are way back on the rear of the motor and are hard to get to. Usually they can put the car on the rack and get to the spark plugs from underneath. Shouldn't take 3-4 hrs.They might try checking the battery when it's under load as if trying to start the car. That test will tell you if you have a bad battery

Where is the starter on a 2000 chrysler lhs?

I can't tell you what side it's on.... but it is where the motor joins to the transmission. if it is front wheel drive (the motor is sideways). look down about the middle of the engine where it joins the transmission.... that is your starter. you should be able to follow one of the large wires from the battery to it. speaking of which make sure you disconnect the battery before changing the starter.

Flashing lights

Hi, had the same problem today. Solution: Start engine, blower on max, air direction to cabin, press rear wiper and rear wash buttons simulanteously for 5 seconds (all lights now on steady). Calibration test starts and lights flsh alternately. After first test, AC and recurculation lights flash for the cool down test. If all test pass then rear wiper light blinks slowly (press to exit self test). If AC and recurculation test fails then just 2 lights stay on. To repeat this part of the test press just AC and rear wash simulanteously ( may take several attempts and usually best when engine is cold). Again exit by pressing the rear wiper button once it is the only one flashing (slow blink).

This does work but it took me 15 minutes to finally switch them off!!!
