My Guess would be if you look underneath by the rear of the motor you should see a round object about 8 to 12 inches longand 4 to 6 inches in diamiter. if i am right all you need to do is take a wrench and take out the bolts!

More specificallyOn a 3.3l engine the starter is about mid-engine on the driver's side. Follow the positive battery cable down to help locate it.
  • Always start by disconnecting the negative battery cable. A memory saver that uses a 9-volt battery and plugs into the cigarette lighter is useful as it retains computer and radio information.
  • You'll need to take the usual safety precautions about jacking up a vehicle, including using jack stands.

The starter is held in with three bolts. If I recall, they are 15mm heads. I was only able to use a socket on one of them, the other two required a wrench and more time. Small hands are helpful. Once the three bolts are out, you'll need to unbolt the battery cable and unplug the solenoid wire. When reinstalling, do not over-tighten the battery cable bolt or you can damage the new starter.

If the 1996 Dodge Intrepid will not start, there might be an issue with the battery or the starter. This could also be a problem with the solenoid or the fuel gauge or fuel pump. The problem and the fix will vary depending on whether the car is completely dead or is cranking when the ignition is turned.
