How to Test and Replace Starter on Ford E series?

The ford E series Vans starter replacing procedure:------


Starter
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
TESTING
Details are as follows:---

4.6L, 5.4L & 6.8L Engines
Specific to:
Ford E-150 2008-2009
Ford E-250 2008-2009
Ford E-350 Super Duty 2008-2009
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Detach the starter motor solenoid terminal cover.
  4. Remove the starter solenoid S-terminal nut and disconnect the S-terminal.
  5. Remove the starter solenoid B-terminal nut and disconnect the B-terminal.
  6. Remove the starter motor ground cable nut and disconnect the ground table.
  7. Remove the mounting bolts, stud bolt and the starter.
  8. Installation is the reverse order of removal. Tighten the starter upper bolt before the lower fasteners to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).

Specific to:
Ford E-350 Super Duty 2008-2009
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the frame.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Remove the cable bracket nut and position the cable bracket aside.
  5. Remove the starter solenoid protective cap.
  6. Disconnect the starter electrical connections.
  7. Remove the mounting bolts, stud bolt and the starter.
  8. Installation is the reverse order of removal.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Make sure the battery is fully charged.
  3. Disconnect the inertia fuel shutoff switch (IFS switch).
  4. Connect a remote starter switch between the starter solenoid S-terminal and the battery positive (+) terminal.
  5. Connect the Digital Multi-meter positive lead to the battery positive (+) post. Connect negative lead to the starter solenoid M-terminal.
  6. Engage the remote starter switch. Read and record the voltage. The voltage reading should be 0.5 volt or less.
  7. If the voltage reading is 0.5 volt or less, go to the Starter Motor Ground Circuit Component Test.
  8. If the voltage reading is greater than 0.5 volt, indicating excessive resistance, move the digital multi-meter negative lead to the starter solenoid B-terminal and repeat the test. If the voltage reading at the B-terminal is lower than 0.5 volt, the concern is either in the connections at the starter solenoid or in the solenoid contacts.
  9. Remove the cables from solenoid B-, S- and M-terminals. Clean the cables and connections and reinstall the cables to the correct terminals. Repeat Steps 3 through 6. If the voltage drop reading is still greater than 0.5 volt when checked at the M-terminal or less than 0.5 volt when checked at the B-terminal, the concern is in the solenoid contacts. Install a new starter motor.
  10. If the voltage reading taken at the solenoid B-terminal is still greater than 0.5 volt after cleaning the cables and connections at the solenoid, the concern is either in the positive (+) battery cable connection or in the positive battery cable itself.
  11. By moving the digital multi-meter negative lead toward the battery and checking each mechanical connection point, the excessive voltage drop can be located. When the high reading disappears, the last mechanical point that was checked is the concern. Repair or install a new connection as required.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
A slow cranking condition can be caused by resistance in the ground or return portion of the cranking circuit. Check the voltage drop in the ground circuit as follows:
  1. Disconnect the inertia fuel shutoff switch.
  2. Connect a remote starter switch between the starter solenoid S-terminal and the battery positive (+) terminal.
  3. Connect the digital multi-meter positive lead to the starter motor housing (the connection must be clean and free of rust or grease). Connect the negative lead to the negative (-) battery terminal.
  4. Engage the remote starter switch and crank the engine. Read and record the voltage reading. The reading should be 0.2 volt or less.
  5. If the voltage drop is more than 0.2 volt, clean the negative cable connections at the battery and body connections, and retest.
  6. If the voltage drop is greater than 0.2 volt, determine which way the current is flowing in the cable. Connect the digital multi-meter positive lead to the end of the cable nearest battery positive.
  7. Connect the multi-meter negative lead to the terminal at the other end of the cable.
  8. Crank the engine and observe the voltage reading. The voltage reading should be 0.2 volt or lower. If the voltage drop is too high, clean the terminal ends. Retest and, if still high, install a new cable. If the voltage reading is less than 0.2 volt and the engine still cranks slowly, install a new starter motor.

This will help.
Thanks.
