Hey Carolyn==It isn't real hard but you need direction. Go to Auto zone or another parts store and get a manual on your car for about $18 and it should have pictures and everything. Good luck Joe

Replace the alternator. Utilize a Hane's Manual.

To remove car parts, a person must have the right tools. For a person to remove a starter on a 1996 Saturn they would need a 1/2 inch socket, a 4 inch extension, a wrench, and pliers.รŠ

Remove the intake manifold. The starter is underneath.

Look where the spark plug wires connect to the thing that fires them (i cant remember what the heck its called) You will see some numbers.On a 96 Saturn sl2 DoHC it looks like this 4/2 1/3 4/2 1/3 The number on the left is for the two connectors on the left, and likewise for the other two. So the firing order for the 96 Saturn sl2 would be: 4 1 2 3 (for instance) That doesnt mean its your firing order.To be 100% sure, check your numbers, or check a manual... or simply call your local Saturn dealership and talk to their mechanic.

If you have ever replaced a water pump on any vehicle the answer would be "yes" you can do it yourself.

Check the fluid level in the Saturn. Check the water pump and thermostat for failure. If they are not working the engine will overheat and the light will blink.

You use a paper clip to flash the SES light to get the engine code for '91-'95 s-series. Or you use an OBD II scanner for '96+ s-series

Actually, Saturn S series vehicles do not make use of a Air Flow sensor..... They do on the other hand have a Ambient Air Temperature sensor located in the lower portion of the air filter box. This can cause poor vehicle performance if it has failed.

Starter solenoid is on the starter. Transmission solenoids are inside the transmission.

The starter price for a 96 Chevrolet 7.5 Vortec engine is around $200. The actual price depends on where the starter is purchased and if it is refurbished.

Remove the cables from the starter. Remove the three retaining bolts from the starter. The starter will come out. Reverse the process to install the new starter.
