I cant remove the starter from my 1979 buick ninety-eight regency


If its a 98 model, its an Oldsmobile instead of a Buick.
You should be able to take the two main bolts out plus the small brace on the end of the starter (if equipped) then drop the starter down enough to take the wires off. The solenoid stays on the starter until you get it out of the car.
Which engine is it ?

Were is the starter located


On the Saturns the starter will be on the back side of the motor on the drivers side midway up the block bolted into the transmission housing.Before you remove your starter remove the ground cable on your battery before taking any wires off of the starter to prevent shorting anything .There should be 2 bolts that hold the starter in place and to bolts holding the wires on.Hope this helps you a little bit.

How to change starter on 1994 corolla


The sizes given are the wrench sizes needed to perform the step.
1. Remove the negative battery cable from the battery.
2. Remove the hose that connects the air cleaner to the throttle body.
3. Remove the top of the air cleaner box (4 clips on the corners).
4. Take out the air filter. Disconnect the sensor on the side of the air cleaner.
5. Remove the three bolts (2 - 12mm, 1 - 10mm) that hold the bottom of the air cleaner box to the inner fender and remove the box.
6. Disconnect the two rubber hoses on the top of the air canister (one large, one small).
7. Loosen the clamp bolt (10mm) (be careful as there is a non-captive nut that will drop if you remove the bolt completely) and slide the air canister out.
8. Remove the two bolts that hold the fuel filter on to its bracket (10mm). It is the same bracket as the air canister's.
9. Remove the air canister/fuel filter bracket by removing the four bolts that hold it in place (10mm).
10. Remove the wire harness/hose bracket directly in front of the top starter bolt (12mm) - this will facilitate your ability to get a socket wrench on the starter bolt. On my car it was RIGHT in the way!
11. Loosen the top starter bolt (14mm).
12. Loosen the bottom starter bolt (14mm) and remove it completely.
13. Hold the starter up and remove the top bolt completely. Flip the starter over and place it on the drive axle below with the wiring facing up.
14. Disconnect the solenoid plug and the starter cable (12mm).
15. Remove the starter by snaking it through the driver's side of the motor compartment. There's enough room if you're patient - be careful not to snag anything and damage it.
16. Snake the new starter down through the driver's side reverse of the way the old one came out. Lie it on the drive axle and connect the solenoid connector and the cable.
17. Flip it over and up into place. Hold it in place and start the top bolt. Tighten it by hand enough that the starter stays in place by itself.
18. Start the bottom bolt; tighten it up all the way.
19. Tighten the top bolt the rest of the way.
20. Connect the battery cable and try the starter - before you put everything back!
21. Replace canister/fuel filter bracket and bolt the fuel filter in place.
22. Slide the air canister in and tighten the clamp bolt. Connect the two rubber hoses on top of it.
23. Install the bottom of the air cleaner box; plug in the sensor.
24. Put in the air filter and then replace the top of the air cleaner.
25. Connect the big hose from the air cleaner to the throttle body.
NOTE: You may have to reset the "check engine" light when you're finished (I think starting the car when we check it in Step 20 can freak out the computer since there are still things disconnected). To do this, find the fuse block on the driver's side of the engine compartment; remove the 15A EFI fuse for 30 seconds. Put the fuse back in - the light should now be reset.
That's it! Shouldn't need another one for another 150,000 miles!

A helpful rating and an testimonial would be greatly appreciated if you are satisfied with my solution ...

Cannot access two upper bolts to 1995lincoln towncar.

My solution was different, i solved the problem myself, all by myself. I decided that since no answer worth looking at was forthcoming, I would do what I always do, find the solution. I decided that I would determine exactly where the bolts were, so I went and looked at a starter at a parts store. Then, seeing that the top bolt was 180 degrees from the other, I knew exactly where to feel in order to discover the location while under the car. I then decided that I needed to find tools that would allow me to just exceed the length of the starter, as there is a frame brace and a motor mount as well immediately in front of the flat end of the starter. I explored the top of the starter with my left hand and was able to feel the head of the bolt, (a 10mm bolt, by the way! as are the other two) I selected a 10mm deep well socket on a 3/8ths drive, and short extensions that, coupled to a small ratchet that dropped just below the bottom of the starter, allowed the socket to
extend far enough to engage the top bolt heads and short enough to allow movement without conflicting with the frame brace.

I kept my left hand in place and operated the ratchet with my right hand until I was able to remove the two top bolts.

Re installing the starter was a new problem, however. There is a retaining bracket bolted to the side of the block that holds the two transmission oil lines in place that is located between the block and the starter. That bracket impedes the placement of the starter when installation is attempted. The rear of the starter will not fit in the space allowed without the removal of that bolt and subsequent sliding of the bracket out of the way to allow room for the starter to slide forward far enough for the nose of the starter to fit back into the flywheel connection hole.Once the starter is installed, there is no problem putting that bolt and bracket back in place.

There is a difficulty that will be encountered when one attempts to place the top bolt back in the hole, however. Without some method of holding the bolt in the socket, the bolt will continuously fall out of the socket before it can be placed in the hole. There is not enough room to hold the bolt and place it in the hole with one's fingers. I solved that probem by covering the head of the bolt with a thick rubbery adhesive that was removed from the edge of a windshield and inserting it into the socket. That allowed the bolt and socket to act as a single unit, allowing me to put the bolt in the hole by keeping my left hand's little finger near the hold to guide the bolt into the hole I do not think I could have placed that bolt in the hole without the use of the adhesive.
I hope that these few guidelines will help someone else with the same problem.
