    What's your theory on removing the ground? You can still get ark at the starter

    • Backyard Chevy

      Only if the circuit is completed at the battery, if the ground cables not touching the terminal it shouldnt arc

    Nice SnapOn ratchet. Are you using that ratchet with Craftsman sockets? I ask since the Craftsman sockets I have don’t work so well with my SnapOn ratchets. I think it’s because the Craftsman sockets have a double detention groove in them. Have you experienced something similar?

      Thanks🙂 i have a mix of sockets..my short sockets are craftsman sockets..the deep sockets are Pittsburgh..but i havent experience that..it may be that my craftsman sockets are older ive had the same sockets for over 10 years

    Hey my 2009 Chevy impala LT makes one loud click. All of the lights, air and radio comes one but it won’t start. Last week it was starting after I got a jump . 7 days later it wont start at all even after a jump this time. The battery is brand new and cables were cleaned off. Could it be a starter fuse or something or do I have to get a whole new starter?

      @Josh Thomas hopefully u guys are able to figure it out..good luck🙂

      Backyard Chevy thank you soooo much a mechanic is coming to look at today! I’m going to tell him everything u said!

      Are the cables tight on the post(can u wiggle or rotate em)...ive noticed on these impalas the new aftermarket batterys, the cables dont really tighten the post that well i had to tap em down a lil usually a loud click means its not getting a good strong connection or enough cranking amps but if everything checks out fine it could also mean ur starter might be engaging the solenoid but the motors not spinning so that part of it could be bad.

    Good evening, i had a question if you had some time. Today i did this same job on a 2011 impala LT. Even put a new battery. All the electrical works i side as it should but when i go to crank the car up. It just makes i loud click noise and Thats it. What else can i check?

    • Backyard Chevy
      Backyard Chevy  Month ago +1

      @SITTINlow Falcon yea that could be the reason..hope ur able to tighten em up, and it fixes it🙂

      @Backyard Chevy thanks bro im gonna make sure thats all good. Terminals were a little loose maybe that was it

    • Backyard Chevy

      @SITTINlow Falcon loud click usually means that ur starters not getting a strong connection or enough cranking amps to spin it...could be a bad connection to battery..dirty or corroded connection try cleaning connections with a battery brush and make sure theyre tight and dont move and if not that check that ur battery cables aren't damaged and secured properly

    If my car smokes up from the engine when I try to start it up and it doesn’t start would it be the starter

    • Backyard Chevy
      Backyard Chevy  2 months ago

      @Jean larraga good luck🙂 i hope everything goes smoothly and u get it going again...let me know how it goes🙂

      It was just like you said. Oil got all over wires. Just bought a new starter. Going to replace it Saturday. And replace or recover wires.

    • Backyard Chevy

      @Jean larraga sounds like ur starter's shorting itself that's why the smell and smoke..its probably really hot if u touch it too..so yea i would definitely replace it

    • Jean larraga
      Jean larraga 2 months ago

      It doesn’t turn over. It just try’s to turn on but nothing. Smoke comes out. I feel as if it’ll catch fire because there’s a smell of rubber. It’s forcing itself way too hard

    • Backyard Chevy
      Backyard Chevy  2 months ago

      So it spins the engine when u turn the key but u get smoke as its turning? Does it sound weird if it does spin?

    My dads 07 impala wouldn't start. It worked just fine the day before. No slow crank or anything. Then the next day, the lights and AC comes on, but a clicking noise is heard. Could that be the starter??

    • Jada Collins
      Jada Collins 3 months ago

      @Death Proff it was the starter

    • Death Proff
      Death Proff 3 months ago

      Was it the starter? I am having the same issue when you try to turn the car over? I got a brand new battery and it still wouldnt turn over. I think it may be the starter.

    • Backyard Chevy
      Backyard Chevy  3 months ago

      @Jada Collins i would still recommend if possible take out battery if u dont have a tester and have the cranking amps tested on it at a local auto parts store and make sure the cables connections are clean

    • Jada Collins
      Jada Collins 3 months ago

      @Backyard Chevy just tired to jump it. Opened the door and all lights came on as usual still one solid click when turning key

    • Backyard Chevy
      Backyard Chevy  3 months ago

      Usually a clicking noise means that the starters not getting enough power...hows the battery? Are battery cables tight and with no corrosion? If u try and jumpstart it does it start right up?
