How do wires run from alternators to starters on a 1983 Oldsmobile 98?

There is a red wire from the alternator output to the starter battery connection post That wire has a fusible link in it that may blown if someone hooked up a battery backwards. I think the fuse link is located on the starter end.

Can you make a fusible link from the alternator to the starter?

A fusable link is exactly like the old fashioned household fuse. You make a fusabling link by cutting the wire and inserting a small length of wire 2 wire sizes smaller (I believe its two, don't quote me.) So if the wire is 12 gauge, put in a small length of 14 gauge. (A 14 gauge wire is small than 12 gauge) Make sure you use stranded insulated wire that is meant for cars and that you use the mechanical connectors with insulation built onto them (usually blue) that you attach to the wire by using a crimping tool. I think the length of the fuse should be about 1 inch to about 1.5 inches. Wrap it with plenty of black electrician's tape. If the fuse does burn out (which you want it to if there is too much current going through the wire) the black tape will protect the wire from shorting out to the body of the car, which cause you real problems.

How do you change the starter in a 1996 Dodge Neon?

There are two bolts that hold it in, the first you can see at the bottom of the starter, it also holds the ground cable on. The second is a long bolt which you need to crawl under the car to get at. Jack up the drivers side and look at the bell housing where the starter is. You will see the head of a bolt this is it. Just use a 15mm socket and extension and it will come right out. There are also two wires that need to be removed one is bolted on the selonoid the other clips in.The whole job can be done in about 15 minutes. ...Art ....remember to unhook your positive battery cable before you attempt to remove the wires from the starter. These wires have power going to them even with the key in the off position. Matt Remove fan motor 1st, 2 bolts size 14mm on starter,loosen bottom bolt from inside part of engine, top bolt from outside of engine or the right side of engine,don't forget the 2 wires on starter & the clip wire, took about 20 minutes

How do you replace the alternator on a 1997 Dodge Neon?

Changing the alternator on a 1996 Dodge Neon? First buy a repair book like a Haynes or Chiltons it will be worth the expense. Next brush up on your four letter words because this is not an easy job. Make sure there are no small children within earshot. Raise the vehicle so you can get under it. Remove the battery hook ups. Under the car remove the plastic splash guard (3 bolts, 1 plastic snap clip). Spray all bolts with a penetrant and let soak in. Remove the two electrical hook ups from the alternator. Loosen the adjustment bolt (back side top) of the alternator and remove the belt. Remove the lower and upper mounting bolts. Remove the 3 pivot mounting bracket bolts and the mounting bracket. You may have to tug and shimmy the alternator loose. It is very hard to see where some of the bolts are and even harder to get a wrench on some of them. Remove the neg. battery cable then the wires from the altermator. Then remove the belt and the mounting bolts and then the altermator. Take the passenger side wheel off and do your work from under the car,make sure you jack it up high and use jackstands for safety,it only took me 30 minutes and no four letter words...jeffbone

Where is the starter on a 95 Dodge Neon?

The starter is located right smack dabb in the front of the engine, half way down behind the radiator,it's plainly visible. unfortunataly, its one of the hardest starters to get at (i was ugly) so unless you've got a garage and tools, take er somewhere and get someone else to do it, if not....its just 3 bolts and a couple wires to disconnect,and lots of beatin 'n trashing!!! . The starter is pretty dificult to get to and the Hayne manual is little to no help. The easiest way to get it out of the car is to remove the battery and the battery holder, along with the radiator fan on that side. With all that removed it is just a matter of undoing the two mounting bolts. The lower of the two you will have to get from underneath. Make sure you have a couple different extensions and a universal joint and you should be fine. I tried following the instruction in the book and found out a better way. With the fan on the battery side out the starter came out easily. Plan for two to three hours of work on it.

How do you remove the starter from a 1995 Dodge Neon?

Ok i havent tried it yet but in the book it says to jack the front end, support it. then take a jack and support the engine (using a piece of wood between the jack and engine). take the front engine mount bolt off, and then you should be able to rotate the engine? thus allowing you access to the starter. i don't know if there may be a better way, such as taking the fans off and trying to yank it out that way, but im going to try the first method tonight so ill keep you posted Ok so i just recently took off the starter and it took about an 1 hr. however it is rather simple. and the book was no help. so this is what you need to do.... take out the battery, then take out the batter tray (holder)-- its just like 2 screws you just need to loosen and 2 other ones you need to take out and the tray lifts right up (except for electrical conn. and air tube dealy thing-- oh yeah and the fuse box is connected to the tray. so once that's done you have easy acces to the top bolt on the starer, the bottom bolt is attainable without doing the stuff in the prev. paragraph however it may help out. unplug the electric connector on the starter and also undue the bolt that's holding the + wire on the starter (from batt.) the starter is now free.... i took off one of the fans to get the starter out but you may be able to fish it down through the bottom of the car. Good Luck!!

I am not a professional mechanic but i think that you might have blown rings on the pistons that have oil on the spark plugs. what is probably happening is the rings are bad so, you are not getting good if any compression in the cylinders and the oil on the plugs is probably from a bad oil control ring also on the pistons and the oil is getting past the pistons onto the plugs.

How do you changer starter 1995 dodge neon?

Answer . Do you mean replace a starter?\n. \n. \nIt is not hard but due to space it takes time and small hands help. Start by unhooking battery and jacking up the front end. I have custom bumpers that are lower than stock but I still was able to get under the car and get the starter. I had help, a friend held the starter while I got the bolts all the way out and the extra pair of hands helped twisting the starter to get it out, without removing the front engine mount. If I remember correctly there were 3 bolts holding the starter on one holds the negative wire. There are 2 bolts on the front(where the wires connect) and one on the back. you have to get the wires off to get the starter out. If you have a good socket set you can do it. I think you need to torque the bolts back on at 40 lbs. It seems like more work than it is. If you can change a tire you can do this, just don't sweat it. It helps to have a look at a new starter before you start.

Answer . The ratio does not change from car to car, it is always 50/50 water and anti freeze. . Answer . The above answer is exactly correct, except be sure and use Distilled Water and not tap water.

How do you replace the alternator on a 2001 Dodge Neon?

In order to change the alternator on your Neon you will need a good rachet set and a torque bar. First step will be to disconnect the wiring, then move onto removing the 2 bolts on the top of the alternator. Once the adjusting bolts are removed, use a pry bar to push the alternator back and downwards. Once that is done, you should have enough room to get your torque bar in there to the bolt at the bottom of the engine. Get it loose a bit then remove the paasenger side tire and the plastic cover that is attached to the body of the car in order to give you acces to the bolt that you loosened earlier. Continue to get the bolt out from the paasenger side front wheel well. To reinstall is the easiest, just reverse everything. Goodluck

How do you test starter solenoid dodge neon?

The best way I find to test a solenoid is by removing it from the starter. Then, once off, use a set of jumper cables, attaching the positive and negative end to a battery first and then at the solenoid end the positive cable to the positive bolt on the solenoid. Then, using the negative cable, make contact with the push-on terminal end of the solenoid. This should result in the front spring-loaded end kicking forward. If it doesn't happen try the other push-on terminal end and make sure that the positive section of the jumper cable is on the correct bolt. Trial and error usually goes along with these things so don't stress too much about it.
