Question about 1989 Buick Park Avenue
On any car, the starter is located at the junction of engine block and the transmission housing.
Less certain is the location of the solenoid, the high current switch that connects battery to starter; this may be separate or may be mounted atop the starter (integrated).
If separate, they can be replaced individually and that also means that there will be another heavy cable with ends that can corrode.
If you trace the positive cable downward, you will either find the solenoid first, then the starter somewhat removed or the integrated starter solenoid with the latter mounted in a smaller housing and attached to the starter.
If you plan on DIY repairs of any kind, it is helpful to have a service manual at hand. The after-market manuals I like are by Haynes and the link below will give you further detail:

These can be had on line, in auto parts stores and sometimes in a larger public library. Having your own is well worth the $20 US investment.
