How do you install a starter in a 1977 Chevrolet Caprice Classic with a 5.7 liter motor?
The 1987 Chevrolet Caprice starter can be found on the right hand side of the engine. The starter will be at the back of the engine, near the bottom.
The starter solenoid is on the starter itself..
Disconnect the battery, locate the starter.. remove the mounting bolts, bring the starter down to where you can reach all of the wires going to the solenoid, and disconnect those.
The 1986 Chevrolet Caprice starter relay switch is located in the fuse box. The relay switch is the first large switch on the right hand side of the fuse box.
If you know the battery and all connections are good, and hear a click when trying to start the car, then remove the starter and have it tested at any auto parts store.
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.
Check your cables for corrosion; if there is any,clean them or replace them. Clean the connections at the starter and clean all grounding wires; test the starter regardless if you think it is good. Clean the battery terminals.
Proper battery connections could be at fault, how old is your battery? Check for loose and corroded terminals on your battery and starter connections. Also the starter might just be bad.

Two MOST probable in the order I'd be checking....Low battery charge or defective battery....Loose or corroded battery cable connections. Secondly, you possibly have a defective starter or starter solenoid. Good Luck! Dub
Disconnect the battery. Remove the wires from the starter then unbolt it. Lower the starter, then fit the new one in. Bolt up the starter and connect the wiring. Reconnect the battery.
Disconnect battery, starter is located somewhere by where engine meets transmission. Remove all electric connections then remove bolts securing starter. Install new starter, attach electric connections, connect battery and your done.
Under the passenger side rear of the engine, just follow the positive battery cable from the battery, it will lead you right to the starter.
At The Battery Junction Block And At The Starter Solenoid
You might want to check the starter, but first tighten the battery connections first. The same thing happen to my wife's car. I tighten the battery connection and the lights came on and car started.
Dirty battery connections or loose battery cables at starter or solenoid?
If you know the battery and connections at the battery are good then it is more than likely a defective starter.
Dead battery? Loose or dirty battery cables? Bad starter solenoid? Bad starter? Neutral switch?
Try on the top of the starter - follow the + battery cable
If the battery is stone dead it won't take a jump. If the battery has some life in it check for dirty or loose battery connections. If the battery and connections check okay it could be a bad starter.
