Question about 1988 Nissan Pulsar
Wontstart at all
On most Nissans, the starter-motor is located on the right side of the engine when your standing looking into the engine bay from the front of the car, it should be a fairly large cylindrically shaped object, 5-6 inches in diameter, about the same color as the engine block, and has a smaller (2 inch approx) cylindric object attached to it, this is the solenoid, which engages the motor.
If you are sure this is the problem, removal is quite easy, usually 2-4 hex bolts holding it in place, to test it, connect the car's own battery to the terminals on the solenoid and motor, and if it doesn't turn, it's shot. Repair is fairly inexpensive, but replacement might be. Good luck!
