Where is the starter located.... the starter went out on my car and i cant locate where its at


They are usually on the bottom of the front of the engine. Not exactly in the front, so go back a little bit toward the back of the engine. Your hot side battery wire leads to the starter and alternator. Find the wire that goes toward the front of the vehicle. Follow that wire and you should run into the starter.

I need to change my VSS on my 2003 Kia Spectra. I need to know where it is located. And the best way to replace it.


Its Located on the top of the transaxle. To get to it you may have to remove the air filter housing once youve done that you should have easy access to it. Just disconnect the wire to it and unscrew the one bolt holding it in place and pull it out.
