No special tools necessary. It is likely rusted in place.
Spray with penetrant and allow to soak in.

Loosen the alternator adjusting bolt and swing the alternator in toward the engine. Disengage the alternator drive belt.

I can't get mthe starter out of my 1994 Z-26 beretta. It has a 4 cylinder motor. I took one big bolt out and the other big bolt was already out missinge bolts.Why won't the starter budge?

Note the picture. Is this what you have? What about the rear bracket, #1? Maybe it's hung up on the flywheel? Did you try tapping on the starter motor with a big hammer, to see if it would come loose? I'm not saying beat it to *****.

How do I change the starter on a 1994 oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

Since its right there at the front of the motor, you really only need a simple ratchet and appropriate sized socket or box wrench to get it loose, but you want to make sure that you label the wires as to remember which terminals they go on;if not reattached correctly, there will be electrical problems with gauges and overall car operations...

How hard is it to change the starter? Can it be done with standard tools and one the ground without ramps? Thanks.

Since the motor is located at a lower point in the engine it will require that you JACK up the vehicle so that you can access the starter motor. It is important that you must be able to work in such postion with the tools to remove the two bolts that are bolted on the starter. You will need socket spanners/ box tools to remove the bolts.
