1999-2006 GM/Chevy: Starter Replacement

1999-2006 GM/Chevy:  Starter Replacement

Start to finish video demonstrating the removal and replacement of the starter assembly on a 2004 GMC Yukon. The method is the same for all 1999-2006 Chevy and GM 1500 products with a 5.3L and 6.0L engines. This includes Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, Sierra, and Yukon Denali vehicles.

On some vehicles, if you’re still struggling to remove the starter once the cables are removed, you may need to remove the engine oil dipstick tube. This is done by removing the one bolt attaching it to the block and then pulling the tube out.

Can you give me a call bro?

Mark Shilling says:

Good video. Thanks. I did find that with extensions and a universal joint on my ratchet I could reach the front of the starter to remove the two cables before removing the bolts holding the starter in. Really easy to install the starter.

Troy Hester says:

If you have to turn the key back to stop the starter from turning, is it the key cylinder sticking or a bad solenoid

Caleb Kneen says:

This helped a ton! Thanks for the video

augustus lindo says:

Was wondering if i should take off the wheel well cover now i see it gives you a little more room to navigate the starter thanks and also for the nuts size

Travis Ritchie says:

Finally, a channel that gives the bolt size! Thank you for the help.

Bill W says:

My truck doesn't have the cover/dust shield and the replacement starter I just put in grinds and won't turn my truck over.

Gotti Boi says:

Very helpful thank you!

John Wiechel says:

Will a start get hard to turn over before it goes out? My 04 tahoe when I turn the key its almost like a very weak battery but my battery is new and holds good voltage. Just the first turn of the key

I do not have a heat shield, is that a big deal?

That 13mm bolt.. Use a 9" extension 3/8" drive and a swivel adapter. Takes about 30 seconds
