Open the hood. just to the left and below the battery you will see a bell shaped housing bolted to the engine. this is the bell housing which contains the flywheel and connects the engine to the transmission. the starter is on the back of the engine, bolted into the bell housing so its gear can mesh with the gear ring on the outside of the flywheel. that should give you enough info to find it. the starter was always fairly easy to replace on old V8s, however you will find the starter replacement on the S series saturn to be very difficult, especially if you do not have a lift. if you are bound and determined to do it yourself make sure you disconnect the negative battery cable first.

Need to locate the starter location for a 1999 saturn sl2


It's on the backside of the motor if you stand on the drivers side and look down on the back side of the motor you can just see it the best way to get at it is put the car up on jack stands get under the car it's in the middle of the back of the motor.
Good luck

All 91-99 Saturns have the same engine block, the starter is on the back of the engine underneath the intake hardware. very difficult to get to.

I have a 1996 saturn SL2 dohc can you tell me why sometimes it will start and then sometimes i will try to start it and it acts like it is trying to start but never turns all the way over


Bad ground will do that. Check battery terminal first, then the second place to check is grounds on the side of the motor where transmission bolts are. Then the starter itself can be corroded right where it lays against the motor, where it is bolted on. This can happen due to too much oil running down on it as well. Last of all the starter can be bad. It is best to have it diagnosised first before guessing at any repairs though.

It is probably part of the starter. If you are sure it is now, trace power from the starter. It should lead right to it.

1996 Saturn SL2 - No response from starter - over past 3 days it has been intermitant - all lights from ignition switch but no response from starter - In 100 attempts, it has started 3 times - Battery is...


It would be hard to guess but a simple diagnostic would be to use a 12v test light and see if the starter solenoid recieves a 12 v signal while turning the key. If it lights, the starter should turn over. This also gives you the oportunity to check and verify all electrical connections at the starter including the large orange fusible link wire at the large battery terminal.
