How do you replace the starter on a 1988 GMC pickup?
The starter on most GM product is located on the lower passenger side of the engine at the rear of the block held on by two bolts. Disconnect your battery, remove the two bolts, and drop the starter down just far enough to remove the wiring from the starter. ( it helps if you have a block or something to rest the starter on while you remove the wires so there is no tension them.) Simply reverse order.
How do you disable the starter kill on an 1988 GMC pickup after you have changed the battery the truck was running fine before Took the battery out to charge It would not start back up?
To change the starter on a GMC Jimmy 95 you must look under the truck and locate the starter. There will be a bar in the way of removing the starter. You will have to remove the two screws and manuver the starter around the bar. This will be tricky so take your time. Once you remove the starter replace with the new one and manuver back in place screw in and your done.
It depends on the truck whether it is 2wd or 4wd. Also you have to factor in the year model of the truck. I have recently had one replace on a 2000 2wd pickup and it was about $2600, that was also a brand new transmission with a 3yr/150,000 mile warranty. You can get them starting about 1800 replaced if 2wd.
