Goodluck! , This starter can be changed without disassembling the top of the engine on the 2.5 with automatic transmission. You will need a 10mm, 14 mm, 17mm, and a 9mm wrench. First with any electrical repair disconnect the battery at the negative terminal. The starter is on the driver's side close to the firewall below the intake manifold. Remove the transmission dip stick so you don't ruin it, then look and study the starter itself. You will notice the starter drive housing with a top and bottom bolt. The top bolt is a 14mm and the bottom a 17mm, loosen both a half turn. Remove the top 14mm bolt first, then the bottom 17mm, this will allow you to pull the starter out of the bell housing. With some angling and no brackets holding the back of the starter you should be able to pull it out enough to disconnect the positive wire and 9mm nut from the soleniod. Disconnect the starter ignition small wire by pulling it off it's connector. Now just pull it out of the engine and fender void and you've got it, saving about a hundred and fifty dollars of labor. Take it to the parts house and match it up with a well made remanufactured or new starter. Reverse the proceedure, hook up the battery. , Hi, you need a 6 inch extension , short 3/8 ratchet, 5/8 plug socket, 3/8 swivel "u" joint, (sold at sears) 8mm 1/4 drive socket deep well and 1/4 inch ratchet. find the coil packs (6 total, three in each head.) remove the two retaining nuts holding each coil pack using 1/4 8mm socket and ratchet. twist the pack to break the sticking boot below. pull up (be careful to not rip the boots however it may still happen but rare.) remove coil packs, the rear is a little more difficult with the intake. use 6" extension and u joint and ratchet to remove plugs and replace. reverse order to assemble. Good luck, and hoped this helped. , it is at the rear bottom of engine, points inside the bell housing of the transmission, u will need to jack the car off the ground to see it and get at it for repAIR , grantgga2: I don't think this is one you are going to want to try to change out. It entails having to remove the left axle and part of the exhaust pipe to gain access to the starter. At that point, you have one bolt which goes in at the bottom from the starter side and bolts to the engine. The other bolt passes through the trans axle housing and bolts into the starter, pulling it up to the engine. SCARED YA HUH? I'D SAY FROM A 1-10 FOR A WEEK END WARRIOR, IT WOULD BE ABOUT A 6. Was I helpful? , Start with the easy one (hopefully). You probably have to replace your turn signal flasher. It's located behind the dash, driver side of steering column in the relay block (just pull out to remove). Your overheating problem: Are you losing coolant, or is the car just running hot? Any leaks, puddles? Check the cooling fans to make sure they are kicking on as the engine temp rises. If not, you may have a bad switch that is not telling the fan to go on. If fan(s) are operating ok, check the thermostat. If it isn't opening properly, it could be the cause of the overheating. If you have a leak in the system, then when it gets too low, it starts to overheat. Many possibilities, So, let me know the answers to the above so I can help further if needed.
