How much should it cost to replace the starter in my 2004 Mercury Sable? I did it with a friend about 3 years ago but this time I have to pay a shop. This is the third starter. Only 68,000 miles on the...

You would have to shop around. Refurbished starters might run between $50 to $70. New ones $100 up. If you are having a mechanic do it, the repair cost for a 2 hour job might cost you $100 up. If you are to do it yourself, check with the internet. Complete easy installation instructions are availlable. Just type how to replace a starter on a 2004 Marcury Sable and print them out. Hope this serves you well and good luck with your project.

I need to replace the existing starter in my 2003 Ford Taurus wagon. I know that I have to jack the car up in order to remove the old starter. What I don't know, is how many bolts need to be removed...

Because of the Variety of mounting methods there are 2 to 4 bolts that should be visible as you look at the starter itself. Not counting the wiring connections. If this a sideways mounted motor with the Starter mounted on the front of the motor there will be 2 bolts holding it in place. If the motor is mounted regularly with the transmission extending under the vehicle the starter in on the rear of the motor near the firewall and will have up to 4 bolts holding it in place but most likely no more than 3. I would recommend getting a Haynes repair manual on the vehicle for more detailed instruction on removal and installation. This manual or a Chilton's manual are both available at the major Auto Parts stores and are fairly inexpensive.

My starter is acting up. i am in the process of purchasing a new starter and will install it myself. just need how to install it in easy steps

disconnect the negative battery terminal. make sure the radio doesn't need a security code to work after power is removed. if it does, get the code. you can also use a memory saver. available at parts stores. it plugs into the power outlet/cigarette lighter and holds memory for the computer and the radio.

remove the elecrical connections from the stater, remove the bolts holding the starter. install in reverse order. easy as pie
you can go to and register your car. repair guides are available for free

Need to replace starter need info on how to do it.

chb725: If you go to mybunkey solutions and see the heading " "Starter, battery and alternator ok", you will find that I have given instructions for the removal and installation of a starter for a 1995 Nissan Maxima, in great detail.
The instructions include the tools needed, proceedures in a sequence more detailed (which you will not find in any book) and precautions to be taken during the removal and installation of the starter.
I hope this will provide the answer you are looking for. If not, I will await a more detailed request from you.
