How do you change the starter on a 96 Saturn SL2?

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

How do you change the starter on a 1994 Honda?

I have yet to work on a 94, but I have done many Honda starters. Hondas have changed very little since '78. There should only be 2 long bolts holding the starter to the transmission- a 12mm and a 14mm. Pick up a "Haynes" repair manual. They are much more user-frendly than a "Chiltons" manual. It will walk you through the whole operation.

1) disconnect the battery2) locate the starter (Staring at the engine, the starter is slightly hidden behind and below the distributor cap.)3) remove the wires and the two long bolts holding the starter in place4) install new starter

What is the towing capacity of a 1984 Jeep CJ7 6 cylinder?

2000 lbs gross trailer weight W/ 200 lbs tongue load weight. The towing capacity will be listed in the owners manual and is sometimes listed on the drivers door jam. *** I would never tow more than a loaded Jet Ski / Sea Doo trailer with a short wheel base Jeep CJ or Wrangler. It's just not safe. But if you're going to tow a small car on the back streets, going very slowly for only a couple miles - no problem.

How do you change a starter on a 2002 VW Jetta VR6?

First step to doing mechanics is to disconect the battery!!!! get a nich jack with a rubber pad on it, a michelin 3.2 tone one is perfect. jack the engine under the oil pan (is the piece right under the engine in between the engine and the transaxl. Jacking up the engine is to relieve the weight off the engine mounts, because the starter motor has 3 bolts. 2 of the bolts go threw the engine and into the engine mount. after the engine is supported you can start by unbolting the wire guide and then unplug the wire and the ground wire. now you can start on the first engine support bolt. then you will have to get under the car... be careful make sure your with someone and you are doing everyhing safe. while the engine is still supported you have to unscrew the last 2 bolts. slide the starter out of the assembly and then slide the new one in. now put bolt all 3 bolts backin lose then one they are all in tighten them all. If the bolts don't seem to be going in then you will have to slowly raise the engine or lower it till the bolt matched the engine support bracket. do everything in reverse order and then your starter is good to go!!!!!! Check to make sure this matches your model ov vw. this is for a mk3 jetta gls

How do you change the starter on a e46 BMW?

NOTE. these starters are difficult to do, first thing is disconnect the neg. battery cable, next, open the hood and near the engine firewall you want to remove the complete micro air filter assembly, and the filter holder itself from the firewall, 4 t30 bolts bolt it to the fire wall, next, remove the plastic cover on firewall that covers up the ac blower assembly, 2 t30 torx bolts , twist and pull the cover off, now you should be able to look down the back of the engine and see the starter. the starter is located under the intake manifold, there are two e12 inverted torx bolts that bolt the starter to the bell housing. both bolts go in same direction. get a e12 long wrench and you should be able to sneak the wrench down behind the engine and remove the top starter bolt, this is a very tight fit and make sure you take your time. next raise the vehicle up and go underneith the vehicle, which ever works best for you and trans type (auto, man) you might need a long extension but remove the lower e12 torx under the car. remove the 2 small wires on starter, and two large cables on starter. (make note on how cables are ran before you remove them), (4 wires in total), starter may be seized into bell housing by a dowel pin. just get a very long 3/8 ixtension and place it against the solenoid or any other hard part on the starter and hit the extension with a hammer until the starter breaks free from bell housing (transmission). remove the starter from under the car. replace starter, and secure cables first, then start both bolts, once both bolts are started, snug them both up equally and tighten up, reassembly vehicle, and start car. good luck. adam.

How do you change the starter on a 93 Topaz?

The starter motor is located under the car. There is three bolts holding it to the side of the transmission. There is also a bracet being held on by the bolt which is connected to the E.G.R. tubes. Just undo the the three nuts and pull the E.G.R. bracet off then undo the power line to the starter and you should have the starter in your hands. Before you do anything though disconnect the + batterie terrminal.

Is there a reset switch for electrical systems on Hondas?

Yes - you take the cable off the negative terminal of the battery and let the car sit with the battery disconnected for about a half hour until the capacitors in the ECU fully discharge. When this is done you can hook the negative cable back up and your ECU will be rest.

Also remove the fuse for the ecm (ECU) in this process and make sure you have your radio code before disconnecting the battery.

by doing that yu are pretty much doing a master reset

How do you change the starter for a 1996 Oldsmobile achieva?

All except 2.3L and 2.4L (Quad -4) models

CAUTION: If it has the Delco LocII audio syatem, make sure you have the correct activation code before disconnecting the battery. 1) Disconnect the negative battery cable 2) Raise the vehicle and support on jackstands 3) Under the vehicle disconnect the solenoid wire and battery cable from the stater solenoid. 4) Remove the starter motor bolts 5) Remove the starter motor NOTE: the location of spacer shim(s) 6) Installation is the reverse of removal NOTE: Be sure to install the shim(s) in the same location

2.3L and 2.4L (Quad-4)

See CAUTION ABOVE

1) Disconnect the negative battery cable 2) Remove the intake air duct 3) Remove the cooling fan 4) Remove the oil filter 5) Remove the starter mounting bolts and pull the starter out enough to disconnect the battery cable and wiring harness from the solenoid 6) Lift the starter out between the intake manifold and radiator 7) Installation is in the reverse of removal

Edit: I just did this in my 97 4cyl and I just wanted to add to these instructions that you may have to unscrew the starter relay to get the cooling fan out. The starter relay is right next to the battery. Also, check the wires coming out of the starter relay. There is a purple wire that connects to a connector mounted above the oil filter. It's easy to accidentally unplug when you are installing the new starter, make sure you get it back in there or the car won't start.
