Re: Starter not turing engine
First of all make sure the battery is fully charged and to answer your question the starter is normally located on the side of the engine near the flywheel but if you stop by AutoZone they will print you out a diagram for free

If your battery is in good condition, the likely cause is; the power is
interrupted somewhere along the starter switch to starter solenoid. In
my case it happened on one car when the engine had warmed up... if I
turned the engine off I had to wait for it to cool down to make the
sarter turn. On another car the problem started failing to turn the
starter warm or cold, at the first turn of the ignition key.. later
only after several tries, and later on after about a month, it didn't
turn the starter anymore. I fixed them using a Ford starter solenoid...
used to supply the starter solenoid directly from the battery, and
actuated by the ignition to starter solenoid wire... If you're handy
with tools, you can do it yourself and maybe save a few hundred bucks.
I was looking for an image of the starter solenoid and found this
article that describes the solution perfectly well. Hope it helps.
Goes to show how common the problem is. Hope it helps.
it sounds like the starter contacts are are worn out in the starter.....take a long prybar or anything that you can tap on the starter with while someone is holding the key and see if it will crank and if so i would go ahead and replace the starter and if it does not start let me know with all the info that you have and what you have tried and i will do my best to help you...also if you could let me and fixya know if i was able to help you in any way.......and a thumbs up and a comment would be appreciated.....thanks and good luck......this is a common problem on these models with 100,000 miles or more or depending on the amount of times that you are in and out of the vehicle in a day......have a blessed day....
did you use a new starter or a used one,if it was a used one it or the solenoid may have a problem if its a new one it still could be a bad new starter or solenoid(it happens).you may have a dirty ground where the starter bolts to the motor that the surface may need to be cleaned,or it may be dirty wire connections at the starter solenoid or connections not tight(?).i assume when you had the battery tested at the shop you didn`t have them perform a starter test.some times it can take several attempts to catch the starter acting up.
Yes continious cranking of an engine puts a big strain on a starter in any weather, but almost certainly in cold, it takes a lot of amps to turn an engine, It maybe the fuel is starting to freeze?, Maybe it's an electrical issue such as points, plugs timing, distributor cap, rotor arm inside the cap, maybe it's just settings
Sounds like the temperature sensors. I believe there are 2 on the intake manifold. This tells the computer when the engine is cold so that the computer can adjust for a cold start. I have had to change these several times.
If the starter was an issue, the engine would not crank.
it sounds like either your having a short at the starter or the ignition switch is bad, I am leaning towards the issue being the starter, usually when the ignition switch is going bad there will be no click,
