My starter is going and some times it starts today it won't. I read if I hit it it may start but I can't locate. The starter to hit it. Where is the starter located?


I had a similar problem, hitting it may work some times but I think the contacts in the solenoid are worn out, replace the contacts, I managed to buy them at the local Auto shop, but not easy to find, or replace the starter.
Removing and replacing the starter is not so easy.
Hope this helps.

  3. If equipped with 4WD, remove the front drive shaft.
  4. Remove the nut and disconnect the starter wire.
  5. Disconnect the starter connector.
  6. Remove the bolt holding the starter stay to the upper stiffener plate.
  7. If equipped with 2WD, remove the starter by removing the nut and three bolts.
  8. If equipped with 4WD, remove the starter by removing the nut, four bolts, and the center bracket.
To install:
  1. If equipped with 4WD, install the starter, the center support bracket, nut, and the four bolts.
  2. If equipped with 2WD, install the starter, nut and three bolts.
  3. Install the bolt to hold the starter stay to the upper stiffener plate. Tighten the bolt to 43 inch lbs. (5 Nm).
