The starter is located on the passenger side rear of the engine Two bolts(size13mm??) Be sure to disconnect the pos. battery cable first, before disconecting the wires from the starter,otherwise, you'll ground those wires out and have fireworks. Also, draw out a diagram of the wiring before removing them,so you'll know where they go back on your new starter.

How to change a starter

Changing a starter motor is mostly the same for any vehicle, but since you didn't specify what vehicle, here is a generic response.
To gain access to the bottom of the engine where the starter is located, jack up the vehicle and place strong jack stands under the frame. DO NOT USE JUST THE JACK TO HOLD THE VEHICLE UP!!!!!
Locate the starter motor, which will be bolted to the engine. First, disconnect the two wires connected to it, which come from the battery and ignition. Make sure the ends of the wires do not touch the frame or it will short out. Then remove the bolts holding the starter to the engine and slide the starter out.
Slide the new starter in the smae place and tighten the bolts to the correct torque (varies by vehicle). Then re-attach the wires to the terminals on the new starter and you should be done.

Checking starter relay

Have you checked to make sure the security system hasn't tripped? These cars are very touchy when it comes to that. Also make sure your signal wire to the starter was hooked back up.

Won't start, makes click sound when key is turned. Lights work, new battery in october.

hi this will be the starter motor, to test it, locate the starter motor, using either a long bar, or a tool that you can tap it with, tap the starter a few times, at the same time have someone turning the key in the ignition to run while you do this, it might just be stuck, if it turns over successfully after this a few times, it was a stuck solenoid and the starter may need changing but if it does not, the starter itself is u/s and needs changing anyway...hope this helps, just a bit of advise, when doing the above, make sure you are not near any moving parts when/if it starts up you could hurt yourself so be careful, you try this at your own risk...thanks

Need some help to change the starter in a 2003 Cadillac Deville

Take you time. Mark all of your bolts. Have your new starter ready. Do the whole job at one time. Don't give your self time to forget. Find the starter, look from the lf of the car next to the intake down in the valley of the engine. You should see it. Now everything above it has to come off. Good Luck!

Hi, Need help with a diagram for the starter location on a 1993 Saturn SC2 2door. I have an automatic start and car alarm system. I believe I may have a loose wire or connection, as she is acting up....

sounds as if the starter is going bad or the remote sensor is not understanding the vehicle has started but if you are trying to locate the starter simply follow the battery red or + positive cable down to the starter itself always located at the bell housing between the motor and the transmission

I need to know how to locate the starter on my pickup and how to recognize it. Thank you. Sherry

Follow your electrical wires from your battery down and it should connect to your starter. Your starter is on your lower engine and attaches to your flywheel (on the front of your transmission and is most likely on your passenger side). Your starter also has a smaller solenoid that is attached to the side of it. Hope this helps, let me know if you need more help...

94 toyota carolla starter clicks eventualy starts

You have two options: replace the starter (easiest, but most expensive), or replace the contacts (cheaper, but more work involved).
In any case, you have to remove the starter. Disconnect the battery BEFORE you start. Locate the starter and remove the wires going to it. The starter is held onto the transmission with 2 large bolts. Remove both, and slide the starter out.

If you want to change the contacts, observe the starter, locate a metal plate held on with 3 bolts. Remove the bolts and the plate. You will now see a plunger, and 2 copper colored contacts. Those are what needs to be replaced. Changing the contacts is easy, just do one at a time, and ensure that all insulators are installed properly on reassembly.
