How do you replace a starter on a Cadillac Fleetwood front wheel drive?
How do you replace a starter on a Cadillac Fleetwood front wheel drive Where is the starter located? Is this a difficult job I should pay someone to do or a regular joe and do this.
Assuming the starter motor spins but doesn't engage to turn engine over to start you could have a bad starter drive which is part of the starter assembly or possibly damaged/missing teeth on flywheel ring gear. Depending on year and model vehicle, some starters you can replace just the starter drive otherwise you need to replace the whole starter.
Starter spins but doesn't turn engine? Probably the starter drive. The starter drive is part of the starter and can be replaced if the rest of the starter is still healthy. If your not to handy with wrenches you may want to replace the whole starter with a rebuilt one. Worst case, the flywheel ring gear is bad in which case the transmission would have to come out for replacement of ring gear.
On Chevy Suburban 1999 starter is turning but the engine doesn't catch When started though the engine runs smooth and nice Can it be timing or what else?
(1) If the battery is charged but the starter turns very slowly and sounds like it is "dragging" - it means the bushings are worn out, need to replace bushings or starter. Might be wiser to replace the starter as the armature may be worn due to the "dragging". (2) If the starter is spinning (a "whirring" noise), but not engaging the flywheel. the starter drive (bendix) is probably broken. Need to replace starter drive…
the oil filter should be right under the front of the car in the middle right beside the bolt or nut that you take off to let the old oil out. The above answer is incorrect for the front wheel drive Fleetwood the oil filter is located above the transmission near where the exhaust goes over the back of the engine.
Why does my starter on my 1985 ford ranger 2.6l v-6 4 wheel drive grind or not engage with the flywheel properly?
If the starter 'just spins' it is usually because of a faulty starter drive; sometimes called the starter bendix.It can also be caused by a starter that is tired and no longer has the power to 'throw' the drive against the flywheel. In any case you will need to replace the starter.Price out a low-mile used one from a salvage yard vs a rebuilt one from an auto parts store. I hope this helps you…
Service drive control appears on the control panel of my 1995 Cadillac SLS Sedan Seville. I need to know what a drive control is and what to do about it. It is not ride control but drive control?
On my 1985 FWD 4.1L Fleetwood, it is behind the engine on top of the exhaust. I would recommend a 7/8" O2 Sensor socket, a one foot 3/8" Drive extension, and a 3/8" ratchet with a long handle, as this will be quite difficult to remove (if mine was like others). When installing the new one, do not tighten it too much.
