Yes it is on the drivers side but you will need to remove the exhaust pipe from the manifold on that side. this reqiures the front of the truck to be up on ramps at a minimum as well as a combination of sockets and extensions. just did mine 2 mos ago. 7hrs in the garage. soak the exhaust fasteners well with pb blaster!

It is on your driver side. disconnect the negative side of you battery, remove two bolts and disconnect the wires. to find out if it is the problem take it to a auto parts store and have it checked.

Removed starter bolts but cant get it to drop didnt know if need to take loose motor mounts to raise engine for clearance

Some times you need to move the steering in one direction or the other to get room to move the starter. Look on the New starter for a Rearward bolt coming from the Trans side. Sometimes you have 3 starter bolts.

You don't need to lift the engine.

I need help changing my starter i need to know how to drop the engine so i can get to the starter

Here are instructions as well as links to some helpful diagrams.

This starter motor removal procedure is time consuming. An alternate method of removing the starter would be to remove the engine fan(s) and radiator, then remove the starter motor from the top of the engine. If you chose to go this route, radiator and fan removal can be found in Section 3 of this manual.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. If equipped with A/C, perform the following:
    1. Use a floor or jack stand to securely support the engine and transaxle assembly so they will not rotate.
    2. Remove the front engine mount bolt from the insulator and front crossmember mounting bracket.
    3. Carefully lower the front of the engine, rotating the engine forward allowing more space for easier access to the starter. For easier removal, do not remove the wiring from the starter at this time.
    4. Remove the 2 starter motor-to-transmission housing mounting bolts.
    5. Remove the starter and solenoid assembly from the transmission housing. Position the starter accordingly for access to the wiring.
    6. Remove the positive battery cable nut and remove the positive battery and alternator output wire from the starter. The wiring is shown in the accompanying figure.
    7. Detach the push-on solenoid connector. Pull back on the slide and push down on the rear tab to release the lock.
    8. Position the starter vertically so the pinion end faces downward, then remove the starter motor through the bottom of the vehicle. It may be necessary to move the A/C lines aside slightly to maneuver the starter out of the vehicle.

I hope you found this information useful. Best of luck on your repair.

How do you drop the starer away from the motor

Hello kiernan2002: My name is Roger and i will help you. There is no easy way to remove the starter. You will need to drop the exhaust down to gain the needed clearance to remove the starter. Try not to break the exhaust studs as you loosen the nuts. My experience is they will probably break. Make sure to replace the exhaust packing when you put the exhaust back up. otherwise they will leak. Please rate the answer you received. This is how we know you received need information. Thank You for using FixYa.Roger
