Where is the starter located on a 2008 hyundai sonata?

My starter is going out and I don't have any experience changing one. I understand it's only two screws, but I am not sure where it is located.

SOURCE: location of oil filter on a 2008 hyundai elantra

It is located under the alternator. If you are looking down at the engine, it is to the far left. If you are under the car it is to the far right before the oil pan.

I have a 2002 buick rendezvours my car won't start

Did the people that told you to change the fuel pump
diagnose the entire electrical system for the fuel pump
or just guess at your expense?

If your the one working on your own car, then I have to say
if you don't have factory diagnostic manuals,wiring diagrams
& experience, not only car repairs but basic electricity, your
in trouble, because you have no reference material & no way
to know where to start testing

After 1996, the car has pretty much gone to the repair shops,
as most people never stayed up with new technology

If the new pump was installed by a repair shop,then you don't
need me to tell you the problem.
The shop failed to properly diagnose & resolve & that may be
what they do alot, as they are not up to speed

Headlights won't go off

Hello! I don't see a connection between the headlight issue and not starting...However I definitely see a connection with the accident and not starting...When you say "not starting" do you mean the starter doesn't crank the engine or it does crank the engine but won't start? Do you have a meter and a wee bit of experience using one? If you do we can isolate this fault together...Send a comment...Guru...Saailer

My front lambda sensor has gone on my vw golf reg x509egc what price range shud it be to get it fixed coz i dont wanna get ripped off. many thanks paul

Being ripped off is when money changes hands & NO
Service whatsoever is performed.

That is called Fraud & is a crime

Your never ripped off, ever

You just don't like or understand the
service agreement between you &
the merchant

O2 sensors cost around $40.00 & could go
above a hundred on eruo vehicles

Look on ROCK AUTO.Com for a price & different brands

You surely can screw in any O2 Sensor yourself
It won't take more than 10 minutes

You being in the UK vs: the US who knows what they cost

My name is Ben and I'm your guru, i.e., mentor, an influential teacher or popular expert: a management guru. - origin from Sanskrit, 'weighty, grave', for today.

As you evaluate my advise. solutions and suggestions, there are a few things you must keep in mind:

• A thorough diagnostic approach involves the use of technical equipment, such as voltage meters. scanning equipment and other sophisticated devices. Diagnostic tools can be borrowed from AutoZone for FREE:
• Lastly, fixing one problem can very easily reveal a problem with something that you might consider unrelated. Please understand that I can only analyze and suggest based on the information that you provide.

Please don't even think about trying to disarm your anti-theft system because there is an easier solution. I'm assuming that you don't have the full Shop Service Manual. If you do, then you know that a shop manual costs at least $100.

So why did I say: Don't even think about it? Your anti-theft device is capable of causing problems that you don't want to deal with, e.g., like the one you're having now of the inability to start your car. If you have the dealer do the job, the cost can be prohibitive. The anti-theft device tells the on-board computer to shut off the fuel flow and to disengage the starter circuitry.

SOLUTION: Go on eBay and buy an anti-theft bypass module for $10-$20 depending on the year and make of your vehicle. BE SURE TO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS.

All the best

The jeep GC 1997 6 Cyl is my secondary vehicle so I don't drive it much. But when I did drive at night, my dash was blinking on and off erratically....annoying.....for months now.... I decided to run...

Ok...I can't really tell you exactly what's wrong because electrical problems require actual testing to diagnose. But, I'll tell you what I'd look at. First, check the connections on the harness that comes from the neutral safety switch. (yours should be located on the passenger side of the trans with the connector being up near the trans dipstick tube). In either park or neutral the switch terminals marked B&C should have continuity using an ohmmeter between the switch side of the connector. The switch should complete the ground that goes to the rear connector on the starter relay.(inside the power distribution center.) If you take the actual center apart,(only done with battery disconnected) you will find that connector has two small black wires that should be grounded in either park or neutral.
You can test the relay by swapping it with another of the same number (most in jeeps are the same except the one for A/C and ABS). Before getting into tearing anything apart, make sure the starter has a good connection from the battery (volts at the large starter terminal should be the same as battery voltage. Also make sure the small starter terminal has 12v when key is turned to the start position (careful doing that as if it starts your hands etc need to be clear of any moving parts). If not, then make sure the ground cable is clean and secure. If then you find nothing proceed with other tests I outlined. If this seems too complex or if you don't understand any of it, best is to either ask me and I'll attempt to clarify it or have a good shop go over it for you. Please DO NOT rate my answer if you don't understand it and haven't asked any further questions!!!

95 Jeep cherokee Limited - i turn the key and i get nothing...I was thinking it was the battery but after a quick batter swap...still nothing when i turn the key......wonder if it is the replay,starter or...

If you don't even get a click from the starter solenoid, AND have power to it. It is most likely the starter solenoid.

But first check your fuses and make sure that you don't have something easy to replace.

Good luck! At least you didn't have to change your engine - after going through changing the starter the week before.

Put in new starter on 1987 pontiac 6000 and all it will do when turn over key is a click

You may need to put a shim between where the starter mounts. GM's are famous as the teeth for the starter don't quite match up with the flywheel and when the gear in the start goes out it might not be far enough awy and will just hit the flywheel and not match up the teeth. If you go to your local auto parts store and ask for it they will know what you are talking about as this is very common. you can go underneath and have someone turn the key to see if it's just hit the flywheel and not matching up but may need to remove the cover to see. When or if you get a shim I think you will understand the concept better. Did my best to explain but not the best and making people understand. Sometimes it takes more then one shim to make it right. I hope this helps and wish I had a picture. good luck.
