The starter is located on the passenger side rear of the engine Two bolts(size13mm??) Be sure to disconnect the pos. battery cable first, before disconecting the wires from the starter,otherwise, you'll ground those wires out and have fireworks. Also, draw out a diagram of the wiring before removing them,so you'll know where they go back on your new starter.

Need to know the location and how to change the starter on my 1999 oldsmoble aurora v-8

The starter is located beneath the intake manifold, disconnect the ground cable at your battery, remove the cover covering the intake assembly, disconnect fuel lines and any hoses and wiring connectors from the fuel injectors and any sensors,remove all the bolts from the intake asembly,and lift it up to gain access to the starter. You will have to replace the intake gaskets before reassembly. This is a fairly easy task it just looks complicated.

Also remove the air inlet tubing to the throttle body and whatever else may be in the way of lifting the intake. You dont have to neceesarily remove the intake just remove enough stuff lift intake up and support it up then replace your starter, its dry beneath the intake, no oil or coolant to mess with (time +/- 3 hours).

I hoped this has helped (remember rated this)

My starter went out on my 2000 mercury mystique and my husband wants to change it hisself, but he needs a diagram to do it. can anyone help me out here?

When he goes to the auto parts store he will purchase a rebuilt starter that will come with instructions. Once he has swapped the new for the old, he will return the old to the auto parts store as part of the deal. Joe

Need directions to change a starter on a 94 cadillac deville. 4.9 liter engine.How difficult with a floor jack in the driveway

Depending on your mechanical ability, it can be considered fairly easy. If you're working in your driveway,PLEASE be sure to block the wheels so you don't get crushed under the car.

Gather the necessary tools needed such as wrenches, sockets, screwdriver and pliers.
Place the vehicle on ramps or jack up the front and support with jack stands. It is very important to block the rear wheels to keep the car stationary during this procedure. Never work under a vehicle not supported properly
Make sure ignition is OFF and the remove the negative (ground) battery cable from the battery.
Note the location of all wires before removal to make for easier connection.
Remove the large starter cable going to the battery at the starter location.
Remove any other wires attached to the solenoid.
Remove the starter attaching bolts (usually there are two or three).
Remove any supporting brackets that holds the starter.
Drop the starter down away from the car. On some cars you may have to turn the wheels to one side, remove the idler arm, remove or loosen transmission oil cooler lines, exhaust pipes, or ground straps to give you enough clearance to get the starter motor away from the car.
Install the new starter in the reverse order of removal.
Reconnect battery cables and other wires to solenoid.
Place old starter in the new starter box for proper core return.

Check the wires on starter solenoid to make sure they are in the right spot. Sounds like the ignition wire terminal on the solenoid is getting constant power. I hope this helps!
