It just stopped in an intersection. Hasn't started since. She has good cranking but wont turn over

Where is the starter located on a 1993 mercury sable engine


trace the big cable that came from the positive terminal of your battery. at it's end is the starter.

or if it passes trough a big relay, then there is another big cable from that relay that would go down to the side of the engine, either left or right, that would be the starter.
