I think there is a YouTube video on replacing a GM starter.
The wires with large eyelets go on the large center post, and the small wire goes on the post marked S.

SOURCE: Wiring Diagram 1998 Chevy S-10 starter replacement

The starter has one large cable from the battery positive, and a wire that goes to the solenoid (Part of the starter) that becomes hot when the key ignition is turned to start. This also passes through the neutral safety switch. (So it wont start in gear) Not sure if this is what you need, a little vague.

Starter relay wiring for a 1999 chev cav

Skychief2001 is correct.
There should be one wire with a small connector on it that goes to the "s" terminal on the starter (this is the trigger wire that activates the starter solenoid). All the other wires hook up with the large one. The large wire goes directly to the battery, the smaller wires are used to power various other circuits of the car and have nothing to do with the starter itself. It is just an access point for battery power.

How do the wires go on an 03 chevy cavaliers starter

the wiring diagram is to technical. basically the small eyelet wire goes on the little nut you took off and the big eyelet wires go on the big nut with the batt cable wire. this should be all the wires that were on the starter. make sure the little wire doesnt touch the big wires or when you hook up the battery it will try to crank by it self. hope this helps

Check for vacuum leaks. Spray some carb cleaner or WD40 around the intake manifold, trottle body and any vacuum lines. Check for loose connections on engine wiring harness (Maybe you disconnected a sensor, and forgot to re-attach it?).
