Most vehicles you disconnect the negative terminal to the battery, turn the key on to drain any energy left in the system. Remove the small wire off the starter, then the larger wire from the starter. There should be two bolts holding it on, break them both loose but don't remove them too far. Hold the starter with your hand and remove the bolts, then pull it back and either down out of the way or up. Some vehicles you have to remove the exhaust down pipe to get to the starter or to get it out. You can get a repair manual at pretty much any parts store for around $20. Just give them the year make and model and they can look up the book number.

I had a kia spectra and I would recommend buying the chiltens manual or haynes if they have it for your vehicle. It has good information on how to fix things like this and many other problems. also there are a lot of good forums out there that already have solutions for this problem, I have checked. Just type in your question in Google and you will find it. Not to bad of a task though, took me an hour or 2 and a 6 pack to get it doen.

I was going down a hill and my 2003 kia spectra died i got it back to my shop and got a p0340 which is the cam position sensor so i replaced it and tried starting it the starter has a really high whinning...


  • Is the starter engaging the flywheel? In other words is the car turning over and running? If so does the starter still whine? Or does the starter just whine period and the car does not start?
