there should be a diagram under the hood or in your owners manual. if not its always a good idea to have a repair manual and it would include that information. haynes or chilton would be the best and they are usually pretty cheap (10-20 bucks)

First make sure the battery is disconnected, if you are simply replacing the starter, hook the terminal to the same place as the old starter, if you are replacing the wiring, follow the same path as the old wiring. If there is no old wiring to follow, you will need a diagram or another similar engine, mabey at a wrecking yard to follow.
