Any tips/tricks when replacing starter?


Recommended Posts

Had to replace starter today. Besides the broken terminals and losing a 5mm screw, then having to rotate mounting flange, it went well.

UNTIL, the third bolt, you know the one.

Any tips or tricks to get it in there?

Is it an active code? Does the truck run? Everytime I see that codes its inactive. If its active, was it active before the starter replacement? Triple check all the wires that were removed for proper routing. Check the engine ground bolt that is below the starter, is it clean and tight? Was that bolt removed while starter was replaced? Where any wires damaged while removing and installing that heavy a$$ starter?

Truck runs fine. Old starter did not have a relay on top, new one does. Will check engine ground as you suggested, but no other wires disturbed that i know of. will check all again. Thanks
