It's not bad at all. Ijust replace my starter on my F150. Here's the steps.
1. Jack up your car and please use jack stands. Don't rely on your jack when you are under the car.
2. disconnect the ground terminal of the battery.
3. get under the car and disconnect the terminals on the starter. There should be 2. one is a large cable that comes directly from the battery and the 2nd is a smaller wire that comes from the ignition key.
4.Loosen the bottom bolt first and remove.
5. Loosen and remove the top bolt. It helps if you have a helper that holds the heavy starter as you remove the top bolt. You can do it your self, just be careful.
6. Remove the starter. I assume that the new starter also has a new solenoid already attached to the new starter.
7. Installation is the reverse. Start the top bolt first. this is a little tricky because the starter is heavy.
8. There's not a lot of room on most cars. Be patient and don't hurry.
Hope this helps. Good luck Loringh PS Please give me a rating

The likely problem is the contacts in the solenoid on the side of the starter. Does the solenoid click when trying to start the car? Disconnect one battery cable before doing anything with it. I fixed mine by removing the end of the solenoid case and building up the badly eroded input terminal bolt head with silver solder--worked great. You have to work under the car to get to these parts--use jack stands for safety.

You don't mention what engine you have ( there are 4 cyl, or 2 v-6 choices 3.0L or 3.3L available for that year). The water pump costs anywhere from $50 to $80, depending where you buy it, labor is supposed to take about one hour (access to the water pump is through the wheel well, after removing the plastic liner). There are other things that can raise the cost: how old is your coolant? This is a good time to have it changed if it needs it, what is the condition of the serpentine belt? It has to be removed to replace the pump, so again, if it needs to be changed, this is the time to do it. Dealers are charging about $100 an hour in my area, private garages less, and there will be additional charges for 'environmental' concerns, which is basically properly disposing of parts and fluids. So, the best thing to do is check with your local dealer and service stations and get an estimate on the work, and if anything else is needed (coolant, belt, etc) for a price in your area. With the economy not doing well, there should be plenty of repair facilities eager to give you an estimate. Good luck.

Engine Computer is on the left front fender under the relay center.
Transmission computer is on the right front fender.
Body control module is inside the cabin, under the dash, behind the fuse panel.

Testimonial: "Thanks your answer went further then I asked Many kudos."
The pcm is located on the drivers side in behind the fuse/relay panel against the fenderwell. You will have to remove the screws holding the fuse/relay panel, and move it out of the way to get to the pcm if you decide to remove it. Make sure to disconnect the negative cable from the battery first before you do any type of work. Also make sure to ground yourself to the van body before you handle it. Without doing this will damage the pcm, (static electricity). hope this will help you.
