How to replace starter in a 1991 Cutlass Ciera

I had to do mine recently. You have to remove the radiator to make elbow room. Then jack up the car, as the trick is to remove the motor mount, then jack up the motor itself as high as you can get it to go. At that point you should be able to see the starter. That frees up getting to the starter. The rest is easy, no explanation required, it's just figuring out how to get to it that's a bear. Good luck.

How do i change the front brakes on a 1991 oldsmobile cutlass ciera. i already have the brake paids

Hello, open the hood locate your brake fluid take the top off, than you want to losen the lug nuts one the wheel enough so they turn by hand. Jack up the car high enough to get a jack stand under it and the wheel is off the ground. Once the car is supported securely remove the lug nuts and wheel. Once the wheel is removed remove the screw on the bottom of the brake caliper, remove the old pads. Rotate the caliper upward, using a C-clamp and a old brake pad push the piston back in the caliper. Position the old brake pad to cover the piston and the C-clamp in the center of the old brake pad and slowly turn till the piston is fully retracted in the caliper. Install the new pads, put the caliper back in position, put the caliper screw back in double check work. Once every thing looks ok put the wheel back on, only hand tighten the lug nuts, make sure the wheel is tighten evenly. Remove jack stand, lower the car tighten the lug nuts using a crossing pattern once that is done pump the brakes, till they get firm, after they get firm start the car pump the brakes a few more times. The fun part take it for a test ride but allow your self more than normal distance to stop.

Replacing a starter

I would drive car onto ramps or raise front end on jack stands. 1st take out the two hex head screws that hold on the plastic cover between starter and motor. I had to use a pair of large pliers to pull cover down, you have to pull hard. Then you can see the two bolts that hold starter on. They might be very tight or rusted. I had to use a 1/2 drive breaker bar to break mine loose. The front bolt will be easy but the back bolt is difficult. You will probably need flex-socket. I ended up putting a 1/2 " drive breaker bar onto a 3/8 drive flex-socket with an adapter. This back bolt is about 5" long and difficult to remove even after it is out of the threads. Now take off the two wires that are on the terminals on the back of starter. You will need a 8mm wrench or socket for the small one. You may have to try several ways to remove the starter after it is loose. You then reverse the process This is a fairly difficult job and I do not know if you can do it without a flex-socket for the back bolt..

Who knows about swapping transmissions?

The book written way to do this is remove the frame(big sqaure held on with 4 bolts) under neath the front end and drop it out the bottom. in order to do so you support the motor with a cross bar and cable that stretches accross the strut towers(keep the motor from falling out). obviously that is hard to do without a vehicle hoist although posible with jack stands and some struggling. You could do it the way your talking if desparate and have more time.
