I plan to replace the starter on my truck. Please give me the steps to follow form raising the hood to tightening the last bolt.

Is the starter difficult to access. I understand it is on the passenger side under the block.

Thanks.

Hi MR. F150 GUY,

See my profile. I know you are looking for inexpensive advice. Writing an, on post NOVEL is sorta time consuming !

The best way to perform a task like this is to have PRECISE instruction, experienced help, and maybe pictures or diagrams.

I got to this site, with my complicated question, 15 months ago, am recovering from a work injury. IF you RECON this site, they do show many tasks on HOW-TO repair your rig.

This site offers on-line repair manuals, With LACK of the Experienced HELPER part. BUT having great mechanical understanding, advice here and there. I personally, was able to get my "Rear Lawn" mechanics license using MOSTLY, to start: Chilton. Haynes. Factory Service MANUALS.

The good thing about these is :

Yours to keep,

always in your vehicle,

no need to log in to use,

Its SITE will never go down,

range from $20 on up,

Library has them,

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTION,
USUALLY NONE FORGOTTEN OR
LEFT OUT!

GIVES YOU ALL CAUTIONS !

Schedules for maintenence,

TROUBLESHOOTING,

Many Pictures and Diagrams,

Find out much stuff, about your rig you did not know

Really HOPE you take my advice, and aquire one. Library is your least expensive route. Maybe the BOOKMOBILE could show up for future ROADSIDE REPAIR ISSUES !

Love, Turddog

1. Pop the hood
2. Take the battery cable off the + terminal
3. Crawl under the passenger side of your truck
4. With a 3 or 6 inch extention and a 1/2 inch or 9/16
socket remove the starter there is one or two wires if there is two wires there is a small one and a big one remove them. Go get a new starter take the old one for a core.
5. Reverse the process to install

caution remove the battery cable first!

And when your all done and the truck dont start put the cable back on cause you forgot to put it back on.
