To put it very simple, if you plan on keeping the vehicle for any real length of time, go to your local parts store and buy a manual. Haynes and Chilton make pretty good repair books. They have pictures, step by step instructions, safety tips, and generally, what tools are needed. A good book runs about $25.00. If you're gonna keep it, buy the book. There is no way anyone can answer you question in the proper details needed on this limited site.

Good Luck and check it out.

What tools (size) do I need to replace a starter in a 06 Cadillac SRX V6. Is it worth doing myself? Where do I add the transmission fluid and how do I check it?

If you have no metric tools, your not able
to work on any car made since 1980

You never add any fluids ,to any vehicle systems.

You would have a leak and repair it

chances are it's a bad starter/solenoid, check the grounding strap from solenoid to starter (exposed braided wire) tend to rot after time
