On both 2V and 4V 3.0L the starter is located on the side of the motor that would be the front of the car. According to Ford it looks like this is covered with a splash shield under the bumper cover that must be removed to gain access.

Hope this helps

Hi,

It's nearly impossible to see from the top so don't bother opening the hood unless the sun is at the exact right angle allowing for a little trickle of light to help you see it while flat on your back in your new suit on the way to a job interview. Fortunately it's very easy to find with the car flat on the ground. If you slide under the front of the car you'll see it right smack in the middle (side to side) and right up front. It's a cylindrical part about the size of a small loaf of bread and runs horizontal to the moving path of the car.

Thanks for using "Fixya".

The click you are hearing is most likely the start slenoid making contact, however you should short the large wires @ the solenoid to make certain the starter still doesn't run, if so try tapping the starter with a hammer to shift the comutator a litle and try to start.

I need to replace the starter solenoid on a 2003 ford taurus


The starter solenoid is attached to the starter unlike the older Fords. You will have to remove the splash guard to gain access to the starter. It is located on the front side of the motor.
