the noise is from the inside cover over the wheel rotor its like a dust sheild it gets bent a little and when the wheel torques over when you turn and rubs on it. Simple fix take screw driver or pry tool bend plate away from rotor
Well, .. for a 1994 Lumina APV - here's what I did: I replaced the starter in my 1994 Lumina APV (3.8 L V6) after about 120,000 miles. Symptom was that the starter would turn over very slowly when the engine was hot. Nice gentleman @ Autozone told me that the coils tend to deteriorate and heat conducted from the engine causes the starter to heat up and then draw high current when hot. Cold starts were fine - hot starts caused the starter to turn very slowly (like the battery was drained). He tested the starter and it tripped the breaker on the tester two (2) times.
Got a remanufactured one for ~$65.
Here's what I did.
1) Disconnect cable from negative battery terminal
2) Raise vehicle front and suitably and safely support.
3) Remove cover from starter wiring (small right angle-like black plastic cover).
3) Loosen large wiring harness (underneath starter) so that it can be moved out of the way.
4) Remove outer nut and wires from solenoid.
5) Remove outer nut and wires wires from starter.
6) Remove two (2) screws retaining plastic flywheel cover and cover. You will need to do this - otherwise you will be unable to remove the front bolt holding the starter to the engine block. This cover is a small black plstic piece located where starter penertates the flywheel cover.
7) Remove (2) bolts retaining starter to the engine block. One is accessable towards the front of the starter/vehicile and the other (long one) is towards the rear of the vehicle - just behind the frame cross member.
8) Position starter so that if can be dropped down (flywheel gear part first).
9) Reverse the above instructions to install the new starter/solenoid.
you can reset your computer and it will turn off the check enigne light by simply removing the negative cable from your battery for 10 seconds and then hooking it back up, when you start your car the light should go off within seconds, if their is a problem with your emission controls that is making the light come on to begin with it will come back on again, if it is just the computer telling the light to come on so you will take it in to the dealer then un hooking the negative cable will reset the computer which will reset the light, ya out,!
Get a new one and you will see that it is very simple to just slide it in
bs. its hard to get your hands up there, you must be in a very weird position. and good luck getting the little keeper to stay on
