No you can get to them by using an extension on your rachet with a rotating socket. Play around with the extension and rotating sockets to see which works best.

SOURCE: removing starter from toyota corolla 1998

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.

Im not sure where the lexus starter is located but here is your standard steps.

  1. Remove battery positive wire " very Important "
  2. remove wires from starter mark if you cant remember or use your cell phone take a photo of wires.
  3. remove the Positive red thick wire
  4. and solenoid wire
  5. usually most starters have 2 to 3 bolts the starter sits usually on the gearbox near the engine.
  6. Out of experience I wont recommend a refurbished starter rather go for a new one.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: Replace/fix starter on 1991 Lexus LS400

Not too bad. Not much room, just enough to drop the starter. It is probably easier to go up through exhaust if you can get your exhaust shield off the manifold .

SOURCE: replaced starter on 94 dodge ram 1500 5.9 liter 2

your battery may check out fine, being 5.9 liter take a big amperage to turn that starter over 12volt does not mean a thing, amperage is what count. Every auto part store they sell many types of battery and they all 12V but different amperage. Your battery may check out 12V but amperage may have gotten weak. Check all your negative ground that you have good contact to body chassis. You can also try to get a jump from other truck (friends) that has a higher or same amperage as yours to see if it turn over. using jumper cables connect positive cable straight to your positive post and the negative directly to your motor metal ground and see that will also assist the amperage to turn over that starter. This way we can truly eliminate the battery if it does not start. If that don't work than its you ground connections or positive contact. check both positive and negative cables from your battery making sure the wires is good. Inspect the ground wire to your starter making sure it has good contact. Oil and rust will make give a bad contact. If your hear the serenoid clicking when the key is turn over and you can hear the starter making a strong clicking noise to the flywheel but not able to turn your fly wheel, and we try to jump with addition battery increasing the amperage along with good starter, all the gound wires check out, chances are your motor may be lock up. The only way to check if your motor/flywheel is lock up, take all the spark plugs out that way it will reduce your compression, take a big close end box wrench and put it on the main crank pulley and try to turn the main crank pulley over by hand. Go from there and re-post and let us know, one of us will try to continue to walk you through it.

No, it makes no sense. You have V-8, right? Removing the exhaust manifolds will not provide any help in accessing the starter. The starter is in the middle of the engine.

Wen ur tryn to change a starter from a 1991 lexus 400 were do u find the starter in ur car?


Depending on the engine it may be in the lifter valley. I had an early 90s Lexus in a few months ago that needed a starter. It had a v8 that had the starter located under the intake manifold. Turned out to be a 6 hour job. If you end up replacing the starter, be sure to get a starter directly from Lexus. It's not worth the chancing it with an aftermarket rebuilt starter.
