What could make a 1984 Chevy Caprice not start or slow start other than a starter?

If it turns over very slowly, check for bad battery and ground connections. It should turn over quickly if you jump start it. If it doesn't, the battery connections are bad and/ or the battery is bad.

the car is a 82 Chevy camaro and the other is 91 Chevy caprice classic

this very easy ,i worked with 77 Chevy and 89 Chevy caprice ,,the starter is located by right side ,near the exhaust ,there is only 2 bolts ,one is long other is short,before you do that you will need to remove the plastic hub between engine and tranny,first remove this then you will need to remove right exhaust ,or not just on upper stater there will be big wire is a "+ " other isd a small is gonna be ignition switch,so remove this things and after that remove 2 bolts under the starter ad a whole thing should come of easy

SOme 92 Caprice cars came with wheel covers other had aluminum rims.

1991-96 Buick Roadmaster, 1991-96 Chevy Caprice/Impala SS, possibly 1993-96 Cadillac Fleetwood

It could be the starter, keyswitch, neutral lockout switch, wiring connector or any of a number of other problems. Unfortunately you have to just track it down.

Yes chevy caprice do run when battery is disconnected as long as the cars alternator is in working condition to keep the car goin once turned won't turn on without battery just like any other.

You should hope so. The other option is a damaged flywheel which is a much larger project than replacing a starter.

Follow the positive battery cable from the battery down, the other end will be attached to the starter.

Could be the bendix in the starter is stuck. all you have to do is tap the starter to get it to release. then try starting it again. If that doesn't work then the starter is probably finished.

If you get a Caprice with posi they aren't to bad in bad conditions, but they are still a car and not equipped with 4 wheel drive. Chevy Caprice's had decent ground clearance comppared to other cars though which could perhaps allow them to travel through muddier conditions.

Sign up on autozone, they have pretty complete diagrams of this and most other mechanical parts

Sounds like a bad connection on the starter. Unhook the battery cables and then take the starter down and LOOK at the starter wires and make sure there tight and not touching each other.

Other words for Caprice: * Whim * Impulse * Quirk * Fancy * Fad Viper1

It could be a dead battery, or corroded or otherwise faulty battery connections. Cables not tight enough for example. The starter motor could have failed. The starter solenoid may have failed. The starter switch may have failed. The gear selector not in Park or Neutral. Neutral Safety switch bad. Other wiring issues.

In theory yes. Get your first starter then trade it to a different game, then restart Black and get the other starter. Then trade back over the first starter you traded to the other game.

yes you should have plenty of room in the engine bay. you probably will need to change the motor mounts and get a different tranny but other than that you should be fine.

On the driver side of the block It depends on which engine you have. Just follow the positive battery cable from the battery, the other end will be attached to the starter.

Pretty much the same as any other Chevy starter since 1955. Passenger side, below the exhaust manifold and going into the transmission. 7-8 inches long, 4 inch diameter with a hump on the side.

There are many options, but the easiest would probably be the the LT1 350 block. You can get them out of a lot of other chevy's.

First disconnect battery, the starter is in front of motor, disconnect the wires from the two posts ,remove small inspection cover under starter, one bolt is on front side of crossmember other is on backside.when starter is loose gravity will help then.

It could be caused by a number of things wrong such as: 1. Dead battery 2. Bad starter motor 3. Bad starter switch. 4. Bad starter solenoid 5. Bad battery cable, or poor connection There are probably other causes, some more information would be helpful if none of the above is the problem

no , only the concrete and other cemented floors ....

The battery could be dead. The battery connections could be loose. (Check these before you do anything else.) The alternator could be bad. It is not the Battery being dead other wise other things would work like horn, radio, lights, and other things. I would Start with your starter. If your starter dies the truck dies everything shuts down and when you try to start it nothing happen. That is where I would start first and then I would start on the other things.

The stator is located inside the alternator. If you are looking for the starter just follow the positive battery cable from the battery. The other end is connected to the starter.
