Where is the starter on 2008 Saturn aura? I sit easy to replace


You didn't specify engine size. However, the starter ( whether it is 4 or 6 cyl ) is located at the front of the engine under the manifold. The starter for the 6cyl motor is slightly easier to change ( .6 of an hour ) as opposed to the 4 cyl at ( 1.3 hours )

If the fuel pump(s) run while the pressure is falling, replace the fuel pressure regulator and (although I'm sure you've already done this), replace the fuel filter. If the fuel pumps appear to be turning off by themselves, replace the inertia (fuel cutoff) switch.

04 Sante Fe . OBD #2 cyl misfire. Where is #2. Is it on the front or the back where I have no clue how to get to it.


If you are standing in front with hood open # 2 cylinder is the front cylinder to your left, the cylinders go like this, the front cylinders from left to right are cyl 2, cyl 4 and cyl 6 then then rear cylinders from left to right go cyl 1 , cyl 3 and cyl 5. so the cylinder you are looking for is in the front first one on your left good luck, hope this helps.

Changed plugs and plug wires and now it wont start? i checked for spark off the distributer all 6 were good?


if your engine run before you changed anything,and you are talking about a 3.0 engine,
you have to be careful changing wires on this engine,
you need toonly change one wire at a time,the distributor cap on this engine is just stupid.
if you look under the cap you'll see that a wire on the one side of the cap actually has a contact that leads to the other side of the cap.
cly 5 cyl 6
cyl 3 cyl 4
cyl 1 cyl 2
front of engine

if your looking at distributor cap from front of engine,
two screws hold down cap.
look at the screw closest to the front,from that screw second hole to the left is #1.
firing order is 123456
#2 wire will be at that front screw on cap,keep installing wires counter clockwise.

Hi,there. I would suggest you do a compression test to verify that the cyl head was installed correctly.If the compression is good,i would check for codes stored in the computer and go from there.Good Luck!!!
