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.

96 seville 4.6L starter would not work. replaced starter worked for about one week checked battery was bad replaced but starter only turns slowly do not know which direction to proceed.

I would say a repair shop & explain things

I would remove both ends of both battery cables
& clean them,then do a voltage drop test on them
with a volt meter

How to do that is on the Internet & You Tube Video

Your just putting your meter leads from the battery in
parallel with the cables & seeing you have no more
than .02 V drop in the cables

The cables can not have any visible corrosion at the ends
or they need to be replaced & you do not want any clamp-on
ends,all OE

The new starter may have to be tested at the parts store
or switched for one that works

You have two scenarios

A large voltage drop before the starter or bad ground side

Second would be a mechanical engine problem that the starter
can not overcome

Next is most likely something you can not do & a repair shop will
be needed

Find out if the timing is off,worn chain,jumped chain etc,valve or lifter
issues,things that would make it difficult for the starter to turn the motor

While it should not be an issue, I know a dozen people will come
here & have you throwing relays at the car

If you can find the starter relay & a similar one switch them

The relay is only for the control side & the starter solenoid power,
not your problem with lack of current thru the solenoid contacts

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.

2001 F150 starting problems, with 12.55 volts in the battery, when I turn the key to start the engine all I get is one click then nothing, turning the key all the way to accessory, I get an audible...

Hello graari: My name is Roger and I will help you. You have one of three problems. One could be a bad starter. Two could be a bad cable connection. Three could be a bad battery. I would look at problem two and three.Check all of your cable connections at the block,battery and starter. Make sure they are tight and free of corrosion. If all connections are tight and corrosion free? Check the voltage at the battery when the key is on and turned to the start position. If the battery voltage drops below 11v. then the battery is most likely the problem. Generally if the starter is the problem the starter will just click. Another way one person can look at the starter is to turn the head lights on for 30 seconds. Should the voltage drop below 10.6 volts then either the battery is in a weakened state and needs charged up or the battery is bad. If you charge the battery and you smell what appears to be a rotten egg smell? Replace the battery. Should need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. This way I know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

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

Starter Problem

if you drop the trans. dust cover on the bottom of the bell housing you should dee your fly wheel. Place your starter in the position and line up the shims (if needed) . adjust the starter in enough to where it clears the torque converter and shim outward if needed
