Depending on your mechanical ability, it can be considered fairly easy. If you're working in your driveway,PLEASE be sure to block the wheels so you don't get crushed under the car.

Gather the necessary tools needed such as wrenches, sockets, screwdriver and pliers.
Place the vehicle on ramps or jack up the front and support with jack stands. It is very important to block the rear wheels to keep the car stationary during this procedure. Never work under a vehicle not supported properly
Make sure ignition is OFF and the remove the negative (ground) battery cable from the battery.
Note the location of all wires before removal to make for easier connection.
Remove the large starter cable going to the battery at the starter location.
Remove any other wires attached to the solenoid.
Remove the starter attaching bolts (usually there are two or three).
Remove any supporting brackets that holds the starter.
Drop the starter down away from the car. On some cars you may have to turn the wheels to one side, remove the idler arm, remove or loosen transmission oil cooler lines, exhaust pipes, or ground straps to give you enough clearance to get the starter motor away from the car.
Install the new starter in the reverse order of removal.
Reconnect battery cables and other wires to solenoid.
Place old starter in the new starter box for proper core return.

I would check your electrical connections. Check the battery posts...also check all the wire connections that lead off the negative side...(follow them and make sure that any that are connected to the frame of the car are clean and shiny . If they are not...then expect a dirty connection ...take them apart, wire brush all contact points and then re-assemble.)Most problems that are electrical are just bad connections.(mostly on the negative or ground side)
Keep me posted on your findings and ill help some more
Good luck!

Just had the same problem. Think mine is either start relay or neutral safety switch. Just took small wire going to clip on starter (brownish) and bared area of wire 6 inches from clip (do not cut) and wrapped bare end of new wire around it, taped with electrical tape, ran that wire to a push button ( I used a horn relay button from Canuck Tire) and wire from other side of button to battery. Turn ignition on,,, push button and instant start. Make sure car is in park. Will replace defective part later but it'll get you to work or wherever and it'll prove it is not the starter motor. Cost of temporary repair.... $6.00 :D

Freeze plugs need replaced. Can i do this in my driveway. Mother-in-law coming for christmas and i need to fix it.

If you are very handy maybe,otherwise I would send to a repair shop.The front plugs involve removing the starter and other various accesories depending on what ones you need to replace.the rear side is very difficult and are alot easier if you pull the engine.

No juice to the starter on a 2000 dodge neon, won't crank or start , can jump the starter across, but when you turn the key power but won't start.

Check the neutral safety switch,if it is good,replace the ignition switch,if all the fuses are good,please vote,thank you

2000 plymouth neon wont start it was dying every five minutes so we parked it and replaced the safety neutrel switch got a new battery and bypassed the stater to the battery itself and it spins over but...

You may need to replace the cable end that joins the ground cable to the top starter bolt.Useing booster cables from the ground post of the battery to the engine block should confirm this.

2000 plymouth neon wont turn over it just clicks twice replaced battery tested starter and it is good

Try replacing the hot cable from the battery to the starter, replace the clamp, cable and all. Sometimes they corrode down inside.
