STARTER

1986 Buick Electra

HI
I was wondering can anyone tell me how har it would be to change a starter on a 1986 buick electra? The most I have ever done is a oil change and my husband helped me on that. Don't have the money to take it to a mechanic and my husband is out of town till next week and the car is setting at a gas station. Any help
thank you
