IN MOST CASES ..HEY ITS A START ASK FOR A THICK FILM MODULE AT ANY LOCAL PARTS STORE IT IS LOCATED ON THE DISTRIBUTER GRAY,, TWO 6MM SCREWS AND A 6OR8 WIRE PLUG ..HOPE THIS IS HELPFUL

no...the started sylenoid is bad..change the whole starter (225 at autozone with a llt war) and you'll be good to go. They even test it for you when you get there. BUT WATCH OUT, WHEN YOU TAKE OUT THE BOTTOM BOLT, IT ALSO RUNS THROUGH THE TRANNY HOUSING, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A JACK UNDER THE TRANNY AND MOTOR UNTIL IT GOES BACK IN OR YOU WILL TAKE A WEEK TRYING TO GET THAT BOLT IN. LOL...GL

There are contacts located inside the solenoid of the starter that fail with age.
As the contacts where down, the starter likes to 'stick' and can take many tries to start, often requiring jostling like turning the wheel.
There are two options to correct this. The first obviously is to replace the starter.
To save some money you can replace the contacts instead.
Doing this requires unhooking your battery and removing the starter from the car.
Then remove the access plate on the back of the solenoid (3 8mm bolts), take out the plunger and spring. From there you can see the copper contacts, and how they have worn. Remove the 12m and 14mm on either side of the housing and push the bolts through to release the contacts and install new in the same order they came apart.
If you are taking this to a repair shop, be advised most independent shops will just try to sell you a $450 starter. Provide them these instructions or take it to a Toyota dealer and ask for "starter contacts" and they will know exactly what you need.
