The starter is located on the bottom of the engine. You will need to get it up off the ground to give you room to get underneath. Be careful, safety first. Once you locate the starter, there will be two bolts, maybe three and an electrical connection. It is not a difficult repair. You just need room to work on it...

Please leave a good rating, it is very important to me...

Starter on my 91 ford ranger 4 wheel drive starts my pickup a couple time then it just spins have changed it 3 times now

Assuming the starter motor spins but doesn't engage to turn engine over to start you could have a bad starter drive which is part of the starter assembly or possibly damaged/missing teeth on flywheel ring gear. Depending on year and model vehicle, some starters you can replace just the starter drive otherwise you need to replace the whole starter. If you changed the starter look at the flywheel.

Need to change the starter on my 95 nissan pathfinder. how do i do that

1. Drive the front wheels up on ramps. Set the parking brake, block the rear wheels.
2. Disconnect the battery ground (negative) cable.
3. Get under the car, behind the right front wheel. Look up, the starter should be on the side of the engine where it meets the transmission. It is a cylinder about four to six inches in diameter and about a foot long, with one or more wires attached to it.
4. Remove the wire(s). One is a big cable, like a battery cable, bolted to a stud on the side of the starter.
5. Remove the bolts that connect to the starter to the transmission (bellhousing), at the back of the starter. Sometimes there is another bolt near the front. Careful, it is really heavy. Gently lower the starter down and remove it from under the car.
6. Reverse the above steps to install the new starter.

Where is the starter?

Regardless of engine orientation, transverse (front wheel drive) or longitudinal (rear wheel drive), the starter is always found at the junction of the engine and transmission bell-housing.
The starter drives a ring gear located within the the bell-housing and is normally bolted with 2-3 long bolts.

Where is the starter on a 2000 chrysler lhs?

I can't tell you what side it's on.... but it is where the motor joins to the transmission. if it is front wheel drive (the motor is sideways). look down about the middle of the engine where it joins the transmission.... that is your starter. you should be able to follow one of the large wires from the battery to it. speaking of which make sure you disconnect the battery before changing the starter.

It takes alot of torque to get the viscous coupling to turn.
There is nothing wrong with your vehicle.
If you can turn the wheel, then you need a 700.00 viscous coupler.(plus labor)
