1994 Lexus LS400, Location of the Starter ? ?


The starter pinion gear engages into the fly wheel so therefore, its should be mounted where the motor bolts to the transmission. On most V-8's, like you have, it will be on the underside of the motor. Most likely, on the passenger side. Hope this helps. Good luck.
