Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A few ideas:

  • The buzzing/vibration would be the solenoid and it would only do so if the battery's charge is not sufficient to start the bike. If the battery is fully charged, then the sound would be a click/clack;
  • to try & free the engine internals, with the plugs removed, sparingly spray the inside of the combustion chamber with WD40 or preferably 2T oil (used for 2 stroke bikes). Let it sit for a while and then try turning the rear wheel while in first gear with the plugs still off;
  • alternately, try the starter again with the same conditions as above but rather than one long press of the starter button, try short/momentary press of the start button;
  • if the above fails, you may need to gain access to the left side of the engine by removing some of the body works. Some versions have a snap-off circular cover on the body. There would be a disc with slot, Remove said disc. Inside would be a big nut 17/19mm. You would need preferably a T wrench that fits and would be used to turn the crankshaft but not fully forcing it. You have to do it by feel. If considerable resistance, stop;
  • remove the entire body work; remove cylinder head with care on the rubber gasket. apply WD40 oil liberally on the camshaft, caps and let it drip down on the timing chain.
  • try again using the T wrench.
Would appreciate an update. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

If you are not a mechanic, take it to a shop before you completly destroy your cylinder or case. You most likely have a broken ring, bad valve or loose ring clip, but either way, the reason it is worse at the lower end is because that is where you are putting the most stress on the engine. OR...you could try using higher octane fuel, OR...your running the engine to lean. In any case, you should seek professional help with the issue, because running it with it knocking WILL end in an expensive repair.

Where is starter located on 1985 delta 88


Gasoline Engines One of your positive battery cables leads to starter motor.
NOTE: The starters on some engines require the addition of shims to provide proper clearance between the starter pinion gear and the flywheel. These shims are available in 0.015 in. (0.4mm) sizes from Buick, Oldsmobile and Pontiac dealers. Flat washers can be used if shims are unavailable.
  1. Important: disconnect the negative battery cable before proceeding.
  2. Raise the vehicle to a convenient working height and safely support it with jackstands.
  3. Remove the exhaust crossover pipe.
  4. Disconnect all wiring from the starter solenoid. Replace each nut as the connector is removed, as thread sizes differ from connector to connector. Tag the wires for later connection.
  5. Remove the flywheel housing cover and disconnect the oil cooler lines at the transmission, if necessary.
  6. Starter removal on certain models may necessitate the removal of the frame support. This support runs from the corner of the frame to the front crossmember. To remove:
    1. Loosen the mounting bolt that attaches the support to the corner of the frame.
    2. Loosen and remove the mounting bolt that attaches the support to the front crossmember and then swing the support out of the way.
    3. Install the crossmember and mounting bolts. Torque the bolts to 80 ft. lbs. (109 Nm).
  7. Remove the front bracket from the starter and the two mounting bolts. On engines with a starter solenoid heat shield, remove the front bracket upper bolt and detach the bracket from the starter.
  8. Remove the front bracket bolt or nut. Lower the starter front end first, then remove the unit from the vehicle.
  9. Installation is the reverse of removal. Make sure that any shims removed are replaced (please refer to the shimming procedure). Torque the two mounting bolts to 25-35 ft. lbs. (34-48 Nm). Connect the starter wires and install heat shields if removed. Fig. 1: It may be necessary to remove the flywheel cover on some models to remove the starter

Engine is very hard to turn over


One of 2 problems. either you have too much compression for the starter to handle, or, you have burnt the brushes in the starter and simply need to replace/rebuild it. Does it start with the kicker? Or can you push start it? If it won't turn over when you push start it, then your engine may be locked up.

How do I remove the starter?


Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5973094-starter_replace . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Your starter is on the front, close to the fan. Book says it may help to remove the fan, but I don't recommend it. Just make sure you take the negative cable off the battery. Then unhook the 2 wires from the starter solenoid (leave the bottom one on, as it goes only to the starter anyway). Take the 2 starter bolts out and catch any shims that are there. Fish the starter out any way it will come out. Reuse the shims if there were any. They slide in above the starter after you put the long bolt in (see second picture below). Please let me know if you have questions.

You are going to have to pull the right case cover and look at the kick gears to see what is going on. This is no adjustment. There will be a spring or two and possibly a gear that will need to be replaced.

How to replace the starter for a 95 buick lesabre


Be sure to disconnect the battery first. There are HOT wires connected to the starter. Disconnect three wires and two mounting bolts. It can be difficult to reach a wrench in there.

The new starter will come with shims, thin strips of metal. These are for getting the right distance between the starter gear and the flywheel. Hopefully you won't need them. But if the new starter is noisy when mounted, shim it some.
