When you try to start your 91 Chev Cavalier all you get is a click for awhile it would start after a few attempts but now it won't start at all had the starter replaced a few months ago?

I'd say your starter motor was on its way out, and its now time to get a new one.

What is wrong when 1989 crown Victoria Car starts and runs turn it off starter drags until it sets awhile?

Most likely the starter should be replaced. When it heats up, it will turn the engine with a lot of strain. like the battery is low. When it cools down, it will turn freely.

Replacing a starter on a 1995 voyager?

I don't know about a 1995 but I changed the starter on my 1994 with a 3.3 engine and it was extremely easy. It's been awhile but it seems to me that there were only 2 bolts holding it on and they were easy to get at. I just disconnected the power, took out the 2 bolts and the starter came right out. The new starter cost me about $140.00 and I haven't had any trouble since and it's probably been 3-4 years and 40,000 mile ago.

How do you change the starter on a 92 v6 pu 4x4?

I have the 93 V6 4x4 and the starter is just below your oil filter. I'd drain the oil and take off the oil filter first. Then the easiest way is to take of your front passenger tire and pull back the protective shield. Believe me this will save you some time and agony unless you're a contortionist or have small hands and arms. After you break the bolts loose, three of them if I remember correctly, and have taken off the starter contacts it should come right out of there. Installation is a breeze as it's just the opposite of removal. I changed mine awhile ago and am looking at changing it again here soon. My advice is to go with a quality or OEM starter. I bought an after market starter and I've been having problems with it working for awhile now.

Your 98 Chilkoot engine makes very slight clicking noise after first morning start up about 1-2 minutes Any idea what it might be Thanks?

I own a 98 Chilkoot as well. MAR 08 I started hearing the clicking noise immediately after ignition. Normally only once a day first thing in the morning. I can seem to figure out where it is coming from. I am going to replace the starter. What have you tried? Any more news on the problem? The clicking noise is so fast that it can't be lack o' lube.Jeff, Canadaliftersoften at start up your engines lifters will click because they are dry and quiet down once the oil is circulating well this is especially true with fluid lifters since oil pressure takes up the slack in the valve train get the starter checkedit may be a sign that your starters going bad. my Pontiac grand am , didnt have any noticeable signs then one day my car wouldn't start. i thought it might have been just the battery but turned out it was the starter- go figure- anyway they told me that the starter looks like it was going bad for awhile .they said sometimes there are no signs that it just goes out, like it did on me . so i had it changed hadnt had any problems since.

What could cause a 1990 Firebird to not charge when the NEW alternator checks out to be working just fine?

If the alternator tests good then it might not be a charge problem. Does it do it after you run it awhile? If so you might consider changing the starter. My 92 had a high priced starter on it and anytime you drove more than about 5 miles the battery acted like it was dead. It ended up the starter was getting hot and not turning over right.

Why will 84 cj7 start and run fine for awhile then cut out and cranks but does not turn over until cooled down?

When you send a gift on Moshi Monsters why doesn't the gift get to that person?

The gift should be able to get to the person, but it may take awhile. Have the person wait awhile before checking for a gift. They may also need to go out of their monster's room and then go back in again to see the gift, or even sign out and then sign in again and go to their room. If that doesn't work, have them try clicking on their Gift Room and see if the gift is there.

Why would a car start when cold but not start and cranks only after it's been driven awhile?

I'm not sure I understand the question but I do know this. If your car will start when it is cold, yet after driving it for awhile, you shut it off and then go to restart it and it wont start you need to have your starter and starter solenoid checked. Its happenened to me on 2 different cars. It seems that when the starter gets to hot it just jams up or freezes up and won't crank over the engine. Yet if the car sits for a little while it cools down and then seems to work just fine. Its defineately a sign that your starter and/or solenoid is about to die. Pull it out and have it checked.(auto zone will do it for free, its called a load test) There's a good chance that's your problem, if I understood the problem correctly. Good Luck, hope this helps.

Where is dip stick on Mercedes Benz 1997 e420?

There is no dipstick on the 1997 e420. There is a red cap against the firewall, rear of engine. This is where the fluid can be filled. The dealer has a special tool that is used for checking the level. This tool is available in parts for 35-40 dollars. Chew on that for awhile.
