'91-'94 Tercels have the Single overhead cam 3EE Motor.
'95-'99 Tercels have the dual overhead cam 5E-FE Motor. A much improved engine in my humble opinion.

My 1994 Toyota tercel is idling to fast

See if tapping the gas pedal causes the idle RPM to settle at different points.
If so, it's either linkage that needs some spray lubrication or the idle air control is sticking - replace if so.

Unfortunatly, the Tercel windows are not shared with any other car. They are unique. I have cross checked several other cars, and all of the windows are markedly different. Sorry.

What kind of starter does a 1993 Toyota Tercel 1.5 engine take

That is a problem with some vehicle parts, and about the only way to know for sure is to look for a part # or name on the starter itself, otherwise you have to hope they stock the one you need. Yes I see one is direct drive, and the other is gear reduction. May I suggest, if you can't take it off & get in for another, try to get a clear digital camera picture of it, print it off & take it to parts store for them to compare to the picture they have.
