I have a 96 Sedan Deville (103000mi), and I am thinking of replacing the starter that (I think?) went bad on me. I know enough about car repair that I don't mind tackling the job myself. I know that this has been posted at other places that it is easy to remove but never saw what the easiest route is.
My take is that I remove the spark plug wires (mark them of course), remove bolts and connectors, hoses and such from the intake (plenum), but I'm not sure if the fuel line has to be disconnected or not for the fuel rail or leave those on or how. Also as it looks to me the throttle body comes with it, just unhook the throttle cables and the airfilter box. After that I have no idea since I can't see below the intake.
Any suggestions would be really helpful since I'm basically stuck in my driveway.
Part 2, the reason I think it is the starter is that I just recently replaced the battery, so that looks good. I turn the key in an attempt to start the car and all I hear is a click from the relay but no attempt from the starter to kick in. I'm not sure how to test the relay it self. I am also positive that it is not the Neutral Safety switch since I cannot hear that same click from that relay. Do you think it is the starter then?
