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

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.
It's either a 305 or 350 lt1 not a North Star..
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.
Dealer service item.
It has the 4.0 Northstar V8...basically the Cadillac STS Engine with a smaller bore.

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
