Hi Terrie- You can go to '94 GMC Somoma Repair' and there are numerous sites. But I think you have to remove the 4 prong wire (may have to wait for entire unit before removing red lead?) and crossmember (only 4 bolts?) and/or then loosen 1 bolt then remove other-thenstand it up and turn around before you slide out and down. Not that big-o-deal but it helps to know before you go in(you can call |GMC and ask Service Dept. Good luck and God bless

The starter on the Northstar engine is nestled in intake valley underneath the intake manifold. You must first disconnect the negative battery terminal and then relieve the fuel pressure. After you will have to remove the intake assembly to get at the starter which then after that its pretty basic to remove the starter. Just be sure to torque the bolts on the intake back to spec when reassembling (torque specs are written on the intake manifold in bold yellow lettering from what I can recall). With these complicated cars you are better off joining a site like caddyinfo.com and reading their how-to forums and asking other Cadillac owners for advice. It`s very easy when you know what you`re confident and have some simple mechanical ``know-how
You will need to remove the motor mounts and jack up the engine and remove the passenger side tire to be able to get it out. the starter is only 2 bolts. Not hard just time consuming. Disconnect the battery before starting the process. The bolts on the starter are easily accessable you will have to raise engine to be able to get it out.
bottom rear of engine on the passenger side, the starter is serviced from under the car. it is held to the engine block with two bolts, then u must remove the battery cable and starter solenoid wiring as well, always disconnect the battery before doing any work on the starter.
