Re: 1995 saturn ls1
The starter is on the back of the engine, it is held to the engine block by two 13 mm bolts. One bolt is visible on the bottom of the starter, the other you will have to feel around behind the starter for. The first step in this job is to disconnect the battery, that way when you remove the battery cable from the starter (13mm nut btw) you dont have to worry about it grounding out by touching the engine. There is another, smaller wire atached to the starter solenoid that will be either an 8mm or 10mm nut.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The Starter is located under the intake manifold on th back bottom side of the motor!
The only way to remove it is from under the car!
Remove the Neg Battery terminal from the battery before going under the car.
If I recall correctly, there are (2) 14 or 15mm bolts holding it to the engine block, one of them is a Blind bolt, as you will only be able to feel its location on the back side of the starter. (tip, when replacing the bolt behind the starter, either have a small magnet inside the socket to hold the bolt inside the socket while tring to locate the hole. You could also use a small piece of paper or plastic bag to wedge the bolt head to the socket so it doesn't fall out while tring to locate the hole!
You will also have a 13mm nut holding the Positive battery and Alt. cable to the starter and a 10mm nut holding the wire coming from the ignition switch.
Hope this helps!
Happy Saturn Motoring!
locate your EGR valve. Saturn EGR valves are usually located near the intake manifold and throttle body. carefully remove vacuum hoses from the valve. then unbolt it. Remove the EGR valve and discard the old gasket. the valve has 3 bolts on it, 2 in front and one in the backside. if you can not let it soak for a few hours, then clean with shop towels and cotton swabs to remove built up carbon deposits. replace EGR valve with a new gasket. Good-day!
On the Saturns the starter will be on the back side of the motor on the drivers side midway up the block bolted into the transmission housing.Before you remove your starter remove the ground cable on your battery before taking any wires off of the starter to prevent shorting anything .There should be 2 bolts that hold the starter in place and to bolts holding the wires on.Hope this helps you a little bit.
you're doing this without a lift it's a bit of a tight fit, but really
not the worst starter replacement job around :) The starter itself is at
the back of the block towards the firewall. If you'd like a really good
walkthrough there's a guy richpin on youtube that does alot of saturn repairs step-by-step, including a starter video that includes bolt sizes and all.

Top bolt is almost dirrectly above bottom bolt but,toward engine about 1 inch. slip 13mm.socket with enstention behind starter solenoid ,you have to fish for this bolt.Very hard if you do not have a rack,We always remove it from bottom.
There are two bolts holding the factory starter/reducer onto the 5.0 block. The bottom bolt should be easily accessible from underneath while up on ramps/stands but the top bolt must be reached by feeding several long extensions through the front of the motor (by the pulleys) onto the top bolt. If you look down the passenger side by the header you will see the top bolt. You will have to take the intake piping off as well.
