The best place to try and lift is on the lower control arm as close to the tire as you can get the jack. If you are going to be working under the car then be sure to use a jack stand or some blocking to supprt the car in addition to the jack. If you are outside on the ground then be sure to place a piece of plywood under the jack stands. This prevents them from sinking.
If you want to lift the entire front end jack one side at a time and block it as you go. Do it in stages until you get the height you want. If one side is too high then the car will slide sideways as you jack the other side up. This is one of the reasons I prefer blocking to jack stands. Hope this helps.

Where is the starter located on 1999 monte carlo 3.8l automatic

I'm going to attempt to be a bit more specific.

The starter should be located at the front of the engine, mounted down low by the oil pan.

Here is a video that should show what's involved. Don't let the title throw you off as it also applies to your vehicle according to the description.

Hope this helps.

Put jack stands uder a 2001 Lincoln LS

place the trolley jack under the front cross member . (The big bit that connects the side frames under the sump). Lift as high as possible and place the jack stands under the chassis ( moulded rails ) where the sub-frame meets . Then place the trolley jack under the rear diff and lift as high as possible Place the jack stands under the chassis at the front of the springs or track rods By using these positions you will have the cabin securely jacked up with all the wheels free to remove or to work on. Before going under try rocking the vehicle hard to ensure that it will not move off the stands.

Can i get a 97 Monte Carlo high enough to replace

You should have plenty of room. Most low garage roofs are at least 8 feet high and the cars are around five feet. You can jack it up. Please be sure you have it well secured. Some of those ramps that are sold are not very strong. I would suggest you use fixed jack stands. If you don't have any use blocks and set them under the frame as a safety. Safety is more important than saving money.

Hope this helps.
