I am trying to pull the starter on my 98 amigo. This job realy sucks. It has the 2.2 engine in it. I was able to get the bottom bolt out and it appears that the top bolt was missing. The starter will not come out. Is there another bolt or bracket somewhere that I cannot see or feel.

You need to check the coil packs, O2 or to lower the idle by loosening nut on back of jets and adjusting screw until idle is set as low as you want it but I would suggest 5-7 MPH. Tighten nut to lock in screw. This is a mechanic's cheater adjustment that takes less then 2 minutes to do.
I think you should have done more research before you started this project. The clutch wires you cant find may not exist on your Isuzu. Also the starter wont work without a signal from the clutch interlock switch. These probably also dont exist.
if you have the 3.5 v6 izuzu engine the thermostat is a major job, requires removing upper intake ,because it is under not in front of like most thermostats. about 3-4 hour job depending what kind of problems you run into.
1.The battery negative and more importantly positive cable must be disconnected. 2. There are 2 14mm bolts holding the starter in place, the upper bolt can be removed by leaning over into the engine compartment from under the hood with a socket and extension on a ratchet or a ratcheting wrench. 3. crawl under the front passenger wheel and remove the positive cable nut, remove positive cable from starter. 4. unclip the small ground wire attached to starter. 5. remove the lower starter bolt. 6. There is room on the bottom of the vehicle to wiggle the starter down to the floor and out from under the vehicle. There isn't enough room to get the starter out from the engine compartment up and out from under the hood. 7. installation of new starter is reverse of installation.
This procedure should work on any Isuzu Rodeo, Trooper, Amigo, or Honda Passport with a 2.6L 4 cylinder 4ZE1 engine
with the engine off pull the dip stick out wipe it off and put it back in the pull it back out if the oil is at the top hole it is good if it is at or below the bottom hole it is at least one quart low
