you are in for some fun,here is what you have to do>>you have to completely remove the intake manifold>>which is connected to the throttle body,just in case you don't know what it is!it's under the grey engine cover that has the 4 bolt screws on it.you have to unscrew those off,then undo the intake manifold>.which will take a lot of undoing to get it to lift off.and right underneath the intake manifold is the starter.why cadillac put it there?my guess is to make you say forget it and take it to a mechanic.if you need step by step instructions,just email me at mr1159@yahoo.com and i will givwe them to you so u can do it yourself.thanks

29s here, i work for an automotive company a recently we had a 94 or 95 caddy deville with the north star engine in for a starter replacement. the starter was located in the center of the motor! the engine is a v-shape (v8) with the intake cover acting as a lid overtop of the motor with the starter smack in the center. you would have to remove the intake in order to even see the starter if you have the same motor types. That is exactly how to remove it on a 97, i have one and the starter is located under the intake.

Its under the intake manifold. Buy a repair manual and have at it. If your-re a decent wrench and have plenty of tools you can do it. Dealer wants about $1200 to do it. Starter costs about $250

The Starter Motor Is Located Under The Intake Manifold, You Have To Remove A Bunch Of Stuff To Remove The Manifold To Get To The Starter, It Is A Small Gear Reduction Starter. Not Hard To Replace At That Point. But A Lot Of Trouble To Get To. I Recommend You Take It To A Good Garrage. Expect To Pay A Pretty High Price Also. Considering The Labor Involved. GOD BLESS

Changing an alternator in a northstar requires removing the intake manifold,as it is under there. I would suggest getting a service manual for all the details. Good luck Almost but not quite true. Under the intake manifold is the starter not the alternator!!!

It has the 4.0 Northstar V8...basically the Cadillac STS Engine with a smaller bore.

The Caddy STS Seville Came Out With a North Star Engine, And The Starter Is Under The Intake Manifold. It Is A Difficult Job To Replace. If You Are Not Well Adversed In Auto Engine Repair It Would Most Likely Best To Have A Good Garrage To Service It For You.

Many vehicles will only require your basic tools but there are some out there that require special tools such as the Cadillac with the North Star engine.

the gear on the starter is sliding into the flywheel causing the sound. Just replaced the starter on my 97 Deville. The gear on the old starter would slide back and forth due to a broken spring. The new gear on the new starter if fixed in place. Sounds crazy, but oh so true.

You must first remove the power steering pump pulley to get access to the bolts on the pump.

It is 5 miles north-northwest of Cadillac.

Consider David Taylor Cadillac on the Southwest Freeway, Sewell Cadillac on Katy Freeway, Stewart Cadillac on Main Street, Tom Peacock Cadillac on the North Freeway or the Cadillac Man on the Old Spanish Trail. Any General Motors dealership can handle the task, and most competent mechanics are capable and equipped for that job.

Yes, Cadillac still makes convertible style cars. For example, they are still creating the Cadillac XLR, a retractable hard top convertible which was nominated for North American Car of the Year award in 2004.

This answer is good for all Cadillac Northstar engines from 1993-2012.The part that the Water pump sits in is called the WATER CROSSOVER. This part allows the engine coolant to "crossover" from one cylinder head to the other. However it is a large casting that also goes between the throttle body and the intake manifold, mounts the EGR Valve, EVAP purge Valve and MAP sensor in addition to the water pump.Cadillac Man

Only two occupants can fit inside of the Cadillac xlr, so it is not often thought of as a "family car." While the Cadillac xlr was nominated for the North American Car of the Year award in 2004, they are no longer in production as of 2009.

Behind the back seat that's where all the computers for the north star engine is located theres wire terminals that conect to the relay panel behind the back seat so i would suggest you look there.
