You may have to use a series of extension bars to get to a point where you can use a ratchet or t.bar. probably up past the engine mount somewhere.

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.

SOURCE: water leak under the intake manifold,1995 toyota 4 runner

There is a heater core bypass pipe that runs from the block (under the manifold) to the bacl of theengine where you will see a flat rectangular "sheet metal" thing with a pipe coming out of it. The a rubber hose connects. You need to pull the top air plenums and intake to get to it. The p[ipe flange bolts to the block with silicone rtv as a sealant.

What are the steps to change a Kia Sedona Starter


The starter can be removed from under the vehicle. But before doing anything,first disconnect the negative terminal of the car battery.Do start the procedure with battery connected. The starter is located on the frame rail on the driver's side. Lift the car up on jack stands.Give proper support to the car before working under the car to locate and remove the starter.Now before removing the starter you will have to remove the upper intake manifold bracket .This manifold bracket is held by 4 screws,remove those screws first to loose the upper intake manifold bracket.Then remove the wiring connections from starter solenoid mounted on the top of the starter motor.There are two wiring connectors remove both.Both the wiring connectors are fitted by a nut.Remove both the nuts and loosen both the wiring connector.Now loosen the starter connecting bolts and remove the starter carefully from the engine compartment.In the reverse procedure reconnect the new/replacement starter and complete the procedure. ------- Keep updated for any more queries.Thanks.

Where is the starter located at on a Mitsubishi Lancer 2002. I check under the hood in the front towards the grill under the headers... I need to find it.


I replaced the starter on my daughters 2002 lancer and did it the hard way by crawling under the car to figure out where it was first, and then working underneath to get it out. After performing the procedure I realized there is a much easier way to do it.
- The starter is located on the back side of the engine under the intake manifold towards the drivers side of center. It is very difficult to see from the top with everything still assembled.
Replacing the easy way:
1. Disconnect negative battery cable.
2. Remove the plastic air filter box first. After it is off you can easily see the starter down by the shifter linkage bracket.
3. Remove two bolds holding the shifter linkage bracket so it can be moved out of the way.
4. Remove wiring connectors from back of starter solenoid. One connector is just a slide on, the other main wire is held on by a metric nut. That one may look impossible to get at, but if you configure a 1/4 drive ratchet with the right sized deep well socket you have room to work it through a cut out in large mounting bracket that you will see below. I'm thinking the Japanese engineers put the cut out there for this purpose.
5. Remove two starter mounting bolts and allow the starter to slide down and back so as to rest on the bracket below.
6. Walk around to the passenger side of engine and reach down under intake manifold to pull starter up and out.
7. Reverse procedure to reassemble.
8. Done without ever crawling under the car!

How to locate starter motor in mazda 323F


The starter motor is located on the back side of the engine (closest to the firewall) underneath the fuel injection/intake manifold. To replace it, first disconnect the battery, then remove the main power cable (heavy wire) and the start wire (light wire). Next remove the two bolts for the intake manifold support bracket and remove bracket. Remove one bolt on starter rear support bracket and 3 bellhousing flange bolts (two accessible from starter side, on accessible from bellhousing side). the starter is now free and can be taken out form teh passenger's side (LHD).

Don't bother repairing it...I would call up a local wrecker and get a swap over...shouldn't cost you more than $30 - $50

Locating and replacing starter


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.
