    the starter, if accessible.
  3. If necessary for access, unfasten the three dust cover bolts, then pull the
    dust cover back to get to the front starter bolt. Remove the front starter bolt.

  4. Remove the rear support bracket.
  5. Pull the rear dust cover back (if applicable) to gain access to the rear
    starter bolt and remove the rear bolt.
  6. Note the number and location of any shims.
  7. Push the dust cover back into place (if removed), then lower the starter
    (disconnect any wiring if previously inaccessible) from the vehicle.
    To install:

  8. Position the starter in the vehicle, connect the wiring, then install the
    rear starter bolt.
  9. Install the front starter bolt, then tighten both bolts to 32 ft. lbs. (43
    Nm)
  10. If removed, install the dust cover and the rear support bracket.

    (100 Nm).
  16. With the fan's bracket two lower legs facing upward, place the fan assembly
    between the throttle body and the radiator while overlapping the radiator
    tank-to-core seam with the fan blade by about 1 inch (25mm). Be careful not to
    damage the lock tang on the TPS.
  17. Rotate the fan bracket, then place the two lower legs into the insulators.
  18. Attach the electrical connector to the cooling fan.
  19. Install the upper radiator support and the coolant fan should, then install

Replacing a starter on a 1993 volvo 940 turbo. Is this a difficult task?


It looks easy for the 940 but I am not sure about the 940 turbo, as maybe some of the turbo parts are in the way. I'm not sure about that, since there is no documentation on the turbo model vs. the 940 standard model. If you can follow the following instructions, then I would give it a whirl.

Where are the spark plug wires located on a 1995 grand am quad 4? Also, how do you access the plugs?


The Quad 4 does not have plug wires. The engine cover plate has 4 bolts. remove them and lift straight up on the cover. the sparkplug boots will come up with the cover plate. They are protruding strait down from the coils(4) and the plugs are down in the valley between the cam towers if you have the DOHC or behind the cam tower if you have the SOHC.

How to replace a starter, 1998 grand am


Disconnect the battery and raise the car up and put jack stands under the front. From below the car disconnect the the wires on the solenoid connected to the starter. Remove the two bolts holding the starter on but remember the location of the shim under one of the bolts so you can put it back on there in the same place when you put the new starter on. This will work on the 2.5L and the 3.0L engines. If you have the 2.3 or 2.4 quad motor you need to remove the intake air duct,cooling fan, and the oil filter. You have to take the starter bolts out and pull the starter out enough to remove the wires. You have to remove the starter out from in between the manifold and the radiator.
