It is not hard for a novice to do it, first you need to remove the lead from the battery so you will not cause a short cut. Than you have to remove the plastic or metal sump cover/guard so you will see your engine from underneath. Usually the starter motor in Japanese cars is situated in front but some have it in the rear of engine. A starter if it is original Denso looks like the one on website But if it was replaced might look like this Anyway most of the times 99% the leads are same for all starters so you just need to remove them from the old one, untight it from the block put the new one in, put the leads back on the new starter, make sure everything is tight but not overtighten, than put the leads back on the battery and start your engine:) Remember not to mixup the wires, most of teh times it is not possible because of different sizes but be careful. Good luck

Need to know where the starter is located

Not knowing what model or year your vehicle is makes it hard to give an exact answer but the starter will be at the rear (usually the passenger side) where it can connect with the flywheel or starter ring when engaged. You can also fallow the large positive battery cable from either the starter solenoid or battery to locate the starter.

2003 5.3L 4x4 GMC Sierra has started being hard

Sounds like a Solenoid might be bad on the starter if it spins freely and a high rate of speed without engaging.

Also, the relay could be bad.

I am ot sure if the fuel filter and pressure regulator would cause this problem.

No code will show with a bad starter or bad relay, I don't believe.

Good luck with this one.

Changing a starter on 2006 jeep grand cherokee 6cyl. 4x4, how hard is it, it in a tight location, any tips

On the straight six it should not be too difficult. It is on the passenger side of the engine on the back. There are two bolts that go straight up into the housing that hold the starter on. Then you have the wires going to the starter itself. I believe there are some shims between the starter and the housing, make sure you don't lose those. It is kinda a rough job laying on the ground, but entirely possible in about 45 minutes depending on your level of patience :)

4x4 lights flash dont engage

I have a 2001 chevy blazer and for the last three years when i tried to engage by 4x4 the light would just flash, in any mode, low, high, or auto. I found a vacuum hose disconected located near the top center of the firewall. I plugged it in and i was good to go. After researching I found it is a common problem. The hose goes to the actuator under the battery.
