The question you ask is tooinvolved for a proper answer. You may want to go to a car parts store, or book store, andget a repair manual for your car.They cost about $16.00Or, go to a Public Library.

Remove starter on a 1999 rodeo 3.2 v6 first this is no easy task you will need torches and air tools unless you really have ALOT OF PATIENCE ! Disconnect the + red post on battery. Jack up left side (DRIVER SIDE) secure vehicle with stands or blocking ! Spray the 3 bolts mounting the exhaust pipe to the manifold with a good pentrating oil.Unplug the 2 oxy. sensors on the pipe you'll be removing ( be careful not to break the clips on them) Get a thin sheet of metal cut it to fit up in front of fuel tank so no sparks can get on tank (GET A FULL FIRE EXTINGUISHER)( if you have a fuel leak you have to take care of that first!) after confiming there is no fuel or other combustibles in the area torch off the weld nuts on the rear side of the flanged pipe be careful not to damage flanges take a hammer and drive out bolts. Now move to the front of pipe room is limited i used several 3/8 drive extensions a swivel, 17 mm deep well 6 point socket with a 3/8 to 1/2 adapter hooked up to a 1/2 breaker bar.These nuts are selflocking tight little Bas*#% glow them with the torch be careful that the heat from your flame doesn't burn any wires or hoses! Key here is BABY STEPS heat it turn it heat it turn it after a full turn has been made heat it and hit it with the air rachet. You can now move the pipe down and back far enough to remove starter.Remove the 2 10mm bolts holding on shield. Remove the 2 14mm bolts holding starter to eng.for one you must slide wire loom out of the way to get on it. The starter wires one wire you must push down on top of connector to release it. the other wire is a 13mm i believe. Starter is gonna run about $150.00 Check gasket and flange area at manifold & gasket at flange at rear pipe. I applied red high heat silicone and reused mine. Used new nuts (Couldn't find flanged lockers just used regular mm nuts no washers) and bolts with neversieze. This should be done by a profesional ! LOL!
