I have had to replace one in my 95 STS, I am not a mechanic but I do easy stuff, starter, no problem, 4 bolts, 10 min, NOT. It is listed as a four hour job, my neighbor helped me. The starter is located on TOP of the block, UNDER the intake manifold. Will need a gas line tool! What a pain, and then we had to do it all over because they gave us the wrong starter!

SOURCE: Where is the starter motor located on the

In a valley under the intake. I belive you have to remove the heads to change it. They are a nightmare on these engines. It was a very bad place to put a starter.

This might be the engine where the starter is located IN the engine itself. Have to take apart the whole top half of the engine to get at.

Northstar starters are indeed on TOP of the engine, directly below the intake manifold, which is under the pretty Northstar logo'd plastic cover.
