The starter is not on the inside of your engine, it is on the outside front of engine, it is round with a heavy cable going to it and some small wires. Here is the procedure to remove it. You will need a hydraulic floor jack.

its a bit tough but first disconnect the battery.then jack the car up safely.after that remove the two starter mounting bolts and pull the starter out slowly.then unbolt the wires at the starter when the starter is hanging by the wires(carefully)remove the starter and reverse the steps to reinstall the starter and reconnect the battery

96 pontiac grand am se 3.1 is dumping oil over the starter.

If the oil is on the nose of the starter that is inside the bell housing, then it could be the rear main seal. You would have to have the engine or transmission removed to replace the seal.

It's a little unclear exactly what you are wanting. Are you wanting to know how to replace the starter? In any case, it would be helpful to know which engine your 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix is equipped with.

I have a 2002 Grand Am SE and well we had heavy rain and I had been driving though some puddles...then all of a sudden it "shuuders" and stalls...and wont start again...just clicks...what...

Usually the click is your starter solenoid. It should push a rod out that engages the flywheel and then turn the engine over until it starts. So either the starter solenoid or the starter are malfunctioning. If you had no problem before the water issue, you might try a hair dryer to dry the wiring and starter.

But before you do that, I would take off the sepertine belt and try to rotate the engine by hand (using a wrench) to make sure that the engine can be started with the starter.

Car wont start. doesnt turn over. battery good replaced starter still having same problem

I just had this problem with my 2002 Grand Am. The problem was not with the battery or starter. It was the security system. It had to be reset. The garage said that they turned on the key and left it for about 20 mins until the light started to blink then started the car. They don't know why this happened, maybe the remote start? Hope thid helps. Dolores

I need to find out how to install a new starter solenoid on a 97 Pontiac Grand Prix with a 3.8 engine. Need to know where wires go.

its part of the starter. You replace it as a whole. Once you have it you will know what to look for and then its up to you to access it. If you have a radio that needs a code be prepared to lose it when you disconnect the battery. Then disconnect the wires on the starter,
