The saturn SL & SC engines 91-99 are essentially all the same, especially when it comes to the starter. It is on the back of the engine, under the intake manifold and over the exhaust and subframe components and is extremely difficult to get at. That is why there are so many questions on here about this same issue. If you do not have a lift, and a large selection of tools, this job is damn near impossible. Get a rebuilt starter at a parts store and pay a small shop to put it in for you. Keep away from dealers and chain muffler shops.

I have a 1993 saturn station wagon with a 4 cylinder. I need to remove the starter for replacement what is the easiest way to do this?


Hello, Disconnect the negative battery cable with a wrench. (2)Lift the front of your Saturn with a floor jack. Position two jack stands under the front end and lower the vehicle onto them(3)Find the starter at the rear of the engine where it couples with the transmission. It is a cylindrical component about 7 inches in length and 4 inches in diameter. The starter solenoid, a smaller cylindrical component, mounts on top of the starter. Pull off the pin holding the shield to the starter solenoid with a pair of slip-joint pliers and remove the shield.(4)Spray the electrical and cable connections at the back of the starter solenoid with penetrating oil. This will help the retaining nuts release easier.(5)Unfasten the retaining nuts securing the battery cable and electrical connectors to the back of the starter solenoid using a wrench.Put on your safety goggles and crawl under your Saturn. Unfasten the lower starter mounting bolt with a ratchet, short ratchet extension and socket. Remove the upper starter mounting bolt with an obstruction wrench. If you cannot reach the upper bolt from underneath, try reaching the bolt through the opening on the intake manifold support bracket.6)Unfasten the bolt holding the rear starter bracket to the engine using a wrench, if your starter has this bracket (not all 1993 Saturns do)(7)Remove the starter from the engine compartment.
Thanks

HOW TO REMOVE A STARTER ON A 1993 SC2 SATURN


all saturns 91-99 had the same engine block, and the starter is located the same place on all of them, between the firewall and the rear of the block and under the intake manifold/system. it is a ***** to get to, let alone remove and replace. even with a lift/hoist and a full complement of sockets, swivels, and extensions it still makes mechanics swear. i suggest a shop with a lift.

1993 1.9 saturn sc2 starting problems


Sounds like the the Bendix is bad in the starter, which pushes out the drive gear to engage the flywheel. You'll need to replace the Bendix or the starter. It's a bit tough to get to the starter, it is underneath the intake manifold.

Where is the starter relay located on a 1993 Saturn sl2


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.

1993 saturn sc1 new starter now no power at all


Are all wires connected? There should be a fusable link that goes from the alternator to the larger terminal on the starter then a red cable that goes from the larger terminal starter to the battery.

A smaller gauge purple wire connects to the smaller terminal on the starter. This is for ignition.
