Hi my name is john.

which engine do you have?

Is this a coupe,conv,or sedan?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I'm pretty sure it is a 2.5L, I know it's a 6 cly, it is my mother's car. It is a convertible. I believe the starter is located at the front bolted to the engine with an exhaust pipe very close.

  1. Disconnect battery ground cable from remote ground terminal on shock tower.
  2. Raise and support vehicle.
  3. Remove oil filter.
  4. Remove battery positive cable nut from starter and remove cable.
  5. Disconnect push-on solenoid connector.

Thank You. So the starter has a positive cable from batt and another cable. Dissconnect both. Remove oil lilter, Unbolt starter. I think I have it. Do I need any special tools?

Expert:  John replied 7 years ago.
not really, some have shim between the starter and the engine.

There is the positive battery cable and a little wire bolted to the starter solenoid.
