It is located under the car toward the front of the motor by the oil filter. Look for a metal cylinder like object with a big 4 gauge wire going to it. To change the starter you will need to disconnect the battery. Using a 15mm socket and entension remove the 2 starter bolts. You may have to remove the oil filter to get enough clearance to get the starter out. Some cars have a 13 or 15mm bolt on the back of the starter for extra support. If your's has this you will need to remove it.once you pull the start down remove the 8mm and 13mm bolts that connect the wires to the starter. Be careful not to let the starter hang from the wires as they will break. Install the new one in reverse.

Why would 350 engine start turning over when i hook battery cable up with key off?


You said motor my guess is that you pinched the small terminal wire on the starter solenoid or maybe bent the heat shield on the starter when the wires or terminals are closed or shorted the starter cranks check there 1st and then back track the wires up from there

Starter motor makes a clicking noise


Usually means your battery is dead. If your battery is good then you have a flat spot in your starter motor. You can check that if you turn the crank a little and it then starts, you have a flat spot and it needs replacing or renewing.

My starter has for shims on it an it started good for a day now starter just spin when i turn the key on a 1983 buick regal


If your 1983 Buick Regal has a good battery but makes a clicking noise and will not start, you should check and make sure its getting spark, check your starter, also check your battery connections, and the starter cables.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1998 honda civic wont jump start and brings no power to anything..battery is good


Battery positive cable usually runs down to the starter solenoid which rides on the outside of the starter. The heavy wire from the alternator usually runs to the same place. On some cars it runs straight to the battery pos. The alternator is live even when the key is off. It looks like the supply from alt to starter and/or starter to fuze box is or has been lost. The starter terminal also can have 1 or more supply cables on it that provide juice to the main system via your fuzebox.
I get the impression a little tampering has been done with the original wiring layout leading to your problems.
Nothing coming on on the dash leads me to think the starter/fuse box wire(s) are faulty.
Find another identical car if you can, engage the owner in some pleasantries, tell them your problem and have a look under the hood and check out where his wiring goes.
Alternatively, ask around for a friendly vehicle electrician who may be able to spot the problem right off.
Last chance is the ground cable is not making a good clean connection to the engine and or the frame. You can check this by getting a jumper cable and going from thebattery negative to a good point on the engine.
If it lights up, clean all your connections.

Truck will not start how can i tell if its a starter or selonoid


does it spin real fast without clanging and grinding against the flywheel? if so then its probably the solenoid bad. do you have to hit the starter with a hammer then it works? it is probably bad brushes or a worn motor. eather way i think you can only get a new starter and solenoid together not sold seperate. check for bad battery cables (loose).

Not starting or turning over jst click stil have electrics tho


You can bench test a starter. But be warned it jumps when the jumper cables are applied.
Take and put the nut from the battery cable connection back on. Put the Positive battery lead of the jumper cable on that. Hook up the jumper cables to a good battery. Touch the negative battery cable to the mounting housing of the starter. A quick touch is all you need to do. If the starter is good it will will shoot out the starter drive gear and spin freely. The starter will jump and twist.
