The starter can be accessed from under the vehicle.Its just fitted on blts.Its not very difficult to replace starter.But the bolts are removed by special tool.Yu can get the tool from local auo part stores.Its easily available. Car no start problem is sometimes very difficult to confirm. You try all the possible things, but still you get no fault and problem is still the same.--------
In that case, you need to check few things individually.
Check the spark,the battery,the crank, the fuel and other most possible parts. Click this link below for more details:--

Need to replace the starter..where is it located

It is on the passenger side, under the truck, mounted to the transmission. It's not too bad to replace, except for the top bolt for the starter, it's a bit difficult to get to.

Need a starter

It depends on the location of the starter. Mine is difficult but you have to know a little mechanics in order to do this, if no experience well tough luck. Now, in order to start a problem start, try tapping the starter with a hammer or metal pipe, you might need to get under the car or raise it enough to access the starter, raise it safely!! don't be afraid to hit it hard beucause you can have a stuck piston inside that needs to be freed. CAUTION bad starters can cause damage to the fly wheel!!!!

Replace starter

Disconnect the battery, then crawl under the truck and locate the starter, remove the plug going to the solenoid (small brown lead w plastic clip) . then the power wire that goes from the battery to the main starter terminal (12 mm nut) locate the 2 starter bolts 14 mm and unbolt the starter and remove. install in reverse order. ON the 4 wheel drives you may need to remove the skid plates over the bottom of the engine to access the starter.

Starter replacement

Honestly, it is usually cheaper to purchase a rebuilt starter. It costs more because you usually have to buy a rebuild kit and sometimes need to have machine work done to the commutators on the armature of the starter. It can actually cost you more. What is nice with a rebuilt starter is they have a warranty and have mostly new parts in them. If you try and fix a starter another part can just wear out down the line and the process will repeat itself. This way you can replace it once and be done with it. If you turn the key and the starter does not even click you may be able to just replace the solenoid. The solenoid is the smaller cylinder located on the starter houseing.

Here is a link to replacement starters:

Good luck.
