I would like to know how I can replace the starter in my 1991 GMC Safari van step by step instrutions would be very helpful.

Disconnect your negetive battery cable at the battery,Under the passenger side front of your van right rear side of the engine is where the starter is located at.Remove the 2 big bolts holding starter to the block(hold onto the starter as you remove the last bolt so starter doesn't fall and rip wires)Then lower starter enough to access the battery feed wire and the solenoid wire(small wire for the solenoid supply) The big bolts are either 15mm or 9/16 the battery supply wire at the solenoid is usually 13mm and the small wire is usually 5/16 reverse the pro ceedure to install.

How to change a starter on 1985 corvette

Not too much trouble. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove big nut from starter selonoid and remove battery cable along with any other wires on the big post. Remove the purple wire from the "s" terminal on the selonoid. Remove the 2 bolts that hold the starter to the engine block, hold starter up while removing bolts. Lower starter carefully. Some starters have a bracket at the rear end of the starter , if this is one just remove the bolt holding it to the block and lower it with the starter.

1) Disconnect cable from negative battery terminal
2) Raise vehicle front and suitably and safely support.
3) Remove cover from starter wiring (small right angle-like black plastic cover).
3) Loosen large wiring harness (underneath starter) so that it can be moved out of the way.
4) Remove outer nut and wires from solenoid.
5) Remove outer nut and wires wires from starter.
6) Remove two (2) screws retaining plastic flywheel cover and cover. You will need to do this - otherwise you will be unable to remove the front bolt holding the starter to the engine block. This cover is a small black plstic piece located where starter penertates the flywheel cover.
7) Remove (2) bolts retaining starter to the engine block. One is accessable towards the front of the starter/vehicile and the other (long one) is towards the rear of the vehicle - just behind the frame cross member.
8) Position starter so that if can be dropped down (flywheel gear part first).
9) Reverse the above instructions to install the new starter/solenoid

I have a 90 honda civic and the latch by the emergency wont pop the hood. i tried using pliers n grabbing the cord but it does nothing. how can i pop my hood.

First of all I'm not an expert. However, having said that the only way I was able to do this very same thing was to pull the hood up a bit and slide in a couple extensions and a socket onto the bolts and take them off. Then it got real fun becuase one of the bolts is behind the bumper, so I lined it up and drilled through it to get at that one. Drastic perhaps but as a backyard mechanic I couldn't think of a better way to get at it. Hopefully someone else has better advice, perhaps a way to pull up on the hood and force latch open.
