Do you have to pull the motor to change the starter on a 1986 Pontiac Sunbird with the 1.8L?

No. You may want to buy a book though on how to do it. A car parts store will have repair manuals for about $16.00. You can also check out the Public Library for info.

It is located on the back side of the motor near the top but under the manifold. If you are standing on the divers side you can see the starter coil. I just can't get to it to change?

You can feel around for the bolts and wires once you remove them you have to twist and flip the starter to remove it it sucks a hoist will help and lots of light ... small hands/fingers too

The starter on a 2001 Pontiac Trans Am is located on the driver's side of the motor. It is down low towards the back of the motor.

First take out the blower motor on the passenger side. Just the motor not the whole assembly. There is a bracket on the end of the started and take that off too. Disconnect wire from starter and take off the 2 bolts holding the starter. Also disconnect transmission gear selector cable by the starter. All this is a tight squeeze but it can be done. Or go to and they have a diagram that helps too.
