I had to take the starter out to get the the crank sensor, the easiest way is to put car on lift because the starter is under the engine. My first time doing this job. About a 1 1/2 hr job. Go to a parts store and order a Chilton manual, it gives step by steps instruction. Thats what I did and it was easier than I thought. Book number - 28380 , by General motors. Read manual & buy parts then begin work. good luck...

I have a 2000 Oldsmobel Intrigue and i changed the battery. Let it set for 15 minets had power until I turned the key

Double check your connections to the battery and also the starter. Be careful at the starter with battery connected you don't want to touch any metal with your wrench while tightening the wires best to disconnect wires to battery then tighten starter positive then reconnect batter terminals.

I need to change the starter

The starter on 3.5L engines is on the backside of the engine block slightly towards the drivers side.

I just changed the starter in my 2000, 3.5L, V6, Oldsmobile Intrigue. I am going from memory here but the sizes should get you fairly close. The starter is held on with 2 bolts. I used a 13mm (or maybe 11mm or 12mm) socket with a 12" extender to remove the bolts. There are 2 wires attached to the starter. I used an 8mm socket (but a deep socket, the kind of socket that is ~3" long) to remove the small wire. I used ~11mm socket (deep socket) to remove the large wire. Everything was metric. It was not an overly difficult repair. Wiggling the starter in and out of position was probably the hardest part. Remember to disconnect your battery before starting.

Crank sensor is going out, I have a 2000 Intrigue and that is classic symptoms, it will eventually not start. Not that difficult to change.

How do you replace the starter motor?

Depending on the engine size it is not exact same. But should be in the front closest to the radiator. More on the driver side.

No power to heat control or blower motor

R u sure u tested it correctly? There will be a 30 amp fuse usually associated with the blower motor however u need to look at the motor connections with a meter set to ac. These newer cars use a pwm type drive which is a pulsating dc voltage similiar to ac and should vary in amplitude as u turn ur control for speed. If u have that then ur motor is bad and has to be replaced.

2000 olds intrigue will not crank

you have 3 choices.
1) Bad battery
2)Starter motor solenoid is inoperative or starter motor itself is inoperative
3) your engine is locked up
How old is your battery and are the connections to the starter motor good?
Do you hear a clicking noise when you try to start the engine?
Do you have a clunk noise when you try to start it?

If dirty connections then clean the terminals andtry to start engine.
Clicking noise means starter solenoid is picking up but starter motor is disunctional and needs replacement.
If the noise is a clunk then your engine is locked up for whatever reason.
Last but not least if you hear the starter motor runningand a metalic grinding then the star is bad on the starter motor which means replacement of same.
