Hey Sherri==It is best if you go to Auto Zone or another parts store and get a manual on your car for about $18 and it will show you with pictures and everything. You can go to AUTOZONE.COM nd install your car and go to REPAIR INFO then to PRODUCTS AND HOW TO then to "S" for starter and then to REPLACE. These are fairly good directions but are pretty generic. Lots of luck, Joe

On 98's the starter is on the radiator side of engine...best way to remove as I have found out myself...

Remove the two Radiator fans... and remove the top hose on radiator then you have easy access for your hands to reach the starter... then remove the battery and battery box...that will expose the two bolt heads on the engine block, just line yourself up with the starter than you will be able see which bolts they are...There are quite a few of them for other things on the engine... once bolts are removed then you can take the starter out after the hot and the ground wires are dissconnected... Put new starter in reverse order of these instructions... Average time about an hour or less depending on your level of proficency ... Oh the new starter would cost close to a hundred dollars because the starter and solenoid is together as one unit... I recommend a second hand used starter that has been tested from a Junk Yard dealer ... That is what i did for my customer that i done this on recently to safe her money that she can't really afford for a new one...I think i have just about covered all i know on this one...
