Firstly locate the starter motor; if you don't know what it looks like follow the positive battery lead from the battery to where it is connected,that is the starter motor,you may be able to remove it from the top or from under the vehicle,firstly disconnect the battery lead from the battery then from the starter motor plus the other small lead from the solenoid on the starter,you will see two or three bolts that hold the starter motor in, remove them & the starter motor will pull straight out to replace it opposite to how you took it out....hope this helps....cheers

Is there a conversion kit to convert a 1988 Toyota Tercel carburetor to fuel injection, and the back brake drums to disc?

Probably best to go to a Toyota car wrecking yard and see what they have.It would have to be the same model engine,and it is a lot to change due to having a computer and associated sensors that would need fitting also.
The Tercel came out with a couple of carbs models.One looked light a bell on its side(copy of a SU type carb),and gave a lot of grief.You can source the conventional type carb and fit as a replacement.
I hope this helps you.

I have a 1988 toyota tercel and stays acelerated all the time

Replace throttle cable. I had the same problem and when I inspected the cable I found frayed pieces of cable at the carburetor, but if you are not handy and cannot get under the dash easily then I would suggest you have a tech do it for you.

Which starter do I need? Yes I am a woman.

There is only ONE starter for this vehicle. A GOOD parts store can be your best friend for this item. Price shop. Most have a "low price guarantee". Replacement is for someone that has the tools and knowledge and experience as a mechanic.
And, I am a man...
