No. Removal of the intake manifold is not an attractive option.
...That will cost you more time and money in the long run.
You will need to replace the intake manifold gasket, and several others.

Where is the starter for a 2003 toyota corolla located? Thanks!


Hi,
Standing in front of your Corolla with the hood open ,the starter is located right below the intake manifold(curvy tube like looking ) This is in the center of the engine.
A plastic water guard underneath the car prevents you from seeing the starter from below.
That water shield will need to be removed to access the starter.

How to remove starter from 1997 toyota tacoma


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

On all engines except the 2UZ-FE, the starter is external, mounted in a conventional manner, alongside the engine block. One the 2UZ-FE, however, the starter is mounted in the 'V' of the engine, between the cylinder head banks. The entire intake manifold assembly must be removed to access the starter motor and solenoid. (Toyota calls the solenoid a "magnetic switch.")


Except 2UZ-FE Engine

Fig. . . . then pull the starter toward the front of the vehicle to remove it (other components removed for clarity)
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the nut and disconnect the battery cable from the magnetic switch on the starter motor.
  3. Detach the remaining electrical connections at the starter.
  4. Remove the nuts and/or bolts securing the starter to the bell housing, and then pull the starter toward the front of the vehicle to remove.

To install:
  1. Insert the starter into the bell housing being sure that the starter drive teeth are engaged with the flywheel teeth, NOT jammed against the flywheel.
  2. Tighten the attaching hardware to 29 ft. lbs. (39 Nm) and replace all electrical connections.

2UZ-FE Engine

Fig. The starter motor on this 2UZ-FE engine is installed under the intake manifold between the cylinder heads, making it a lengthy procedure to perform
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the cosmetic/acoustic engine cover.
  3. Disconnect the accelerator cable and intake air connector.
  4. Remove the intake manifold assembly. For additional information, please refer to the following topic(s): Engine Mechanical, Intake Manifold.
  5. Remove the two bolts holding the starter motor to the engine block and lift the starter away from the block.
  6. Detach the electrical connectors from the starter and remove the starter from the vehicle.

To install:
  1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Make sure all electrical connections are tight and that the harness is secure.
  2. Install the starter and torque the two bolts to 29 ft. lbs. (39 Nm).
  3. Install the intake manifold.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.

Hope this help (ermember rated this).

How do replace the starter on a 1991 mazda protege


Can't remember the particular model 1998, but generally, here's how to remove the starter on a 90's Protege:
Disconnect the negative battery terminal to remove power from the starter. The starter and starter solenoid are one unit.
There should be 2 or 3 14mm bolts holding the starter to the tranny. At least one of these bolts is accessed from above the transmission, requiring the removal of (at least)the air filter housing and intake, and the battery and tray if you want to make it easy on yourself. Remove those first, then remove the top starter bolt before you go under the car. You might be able to access the top bolt from the left wheel well if you take out the plastic splash guard behind the left wheel, and have a nice long extension with a "wobbly" 14mm socket. There are a number of 10mm bolts and a few plastic fasteners that hold this on.
I believe the starter is located behind a bracket that supports the intake manifold from the engiine block. Remove the 4 bolts on this bracket and remove it from the vehicle. The starter wire may be attached to this bracket with a plastic clip, just undo the clip and the bracket should come right out. The bolts that hold the bracket on the manifold end are usually pretty hard to get to; be patient.
Once you have access to the starter, there should be either 1 or two bolts that hold the starter in on the bottom. Remove the bolts and carefully remove the starter from it's position in the transmission. Once you have the starter free, remove the starter cable and the small wire from the clip on the starter solenoid.
Re-install in reverse order.

Its located just under the intake manifold. you will need to remove the exhaust pipe to access it. there is also an upper and lower intake manifold support bracket that will need to be removed as well to extract the starter.

Its in a tough spot.

Where is the starter on a 1997 toyota corola


under the intake manifold, airbox must be removed to get to the top 14 mm bolt that is hidden behind the wiring harness bracket on the top of the trans. 2nd 14mm bolt is accessed from under the car and is right above the axle. if you remove the r/s splash shield you should be able to sneak the starter out from there by kind of sliding it along the axle if you don't want to remove the axle itself. it is a little tight but it will come out that way
