It is replaced from under the car. The starter is located at rear end of the engine, it goes into the transmission bell housing.

You can buy used cheap on ebay, you can get aftermarket from advance and autozone for just over $100, dealer price is over 200. on the S models the top of the dashboard has to come out, so you have to know what you are doing. could run well over 200 labor at dealer.

Rear lights aren't working in my 1996 saturn SL1.Not bulb problem


Check fuses next, best done with a meter or a test light. You have a panel to the right of the center console in the front where the passengers left foot is, There is also one under the hood by the left headlight area. Remember that fuses for lights are only powered with the light switch on.

Replace serpentine belt on a 1995 Saturn sl1. 1.9 engine


Yes! It is a whole lot easier and faster to take off the passenger tire. Remove plastic cover with speed pins. It is a lot easier to get to the belt tensioner to release belt tension also.Just put a 14mm wrench or 9/16" wrench on the tensioner at the 4:00 o'clock position and push down the belt will be easy to remove and reverse this to install the new one GOOG LUCK *****badgto1NJ

1996 Saturn SL, 4 cylinder, auto trans.. Car starts and runs fine. However if you turn off the ignition when the car is hot, the car will not start again until the engine cools down. When you turn the key...


I also had the same problem with my 1996 Saturn SL1, and it also was the starter. I thought it was an electrical problem until, just on a whim I pulled the starter. One of the brushes was almost gone and the commutator looked like hell. I cleaned up the commutator and brushes, and it spun like a top for about a month, until the worn out brush finally died. I also ordered a new starter the same day of the cleaning. Just a word of advice if you will be buying a new starter, go on Ebay Motors and find the store dbelectrical. They sell brand new starters for $49.95 with no core charge plus $12 UPS shipping. So $61.95 vs $150+ at your local parts store....Myself and my friend from work have both bought and daily use starters from them with no problems or complaints to report.

Starting problem


When I got my saturn Sc2 the first thing that went was the starter .......kind of a pain to change if your your not smaller but definately doable.........I would first take the starter to an autoparts store and have them test it 4 u .....its free......If you do have to replace it then grab a Haynes Manual while you are there.....It will tell you step by step.....For myself it wasn't to hard as long as you've got the tools you should be fine ....you will definately need a jack and jackstands though. Probably the worst part about it was the akward position you have to have your arm in but that was bearable.
