Hi,

The starter is usually at the rear of the engine mounted on the bell housing before the transmission. Best is to follow the big battery cable (not the ground -). It would look something like this.

In the picture below, the upper portion is the starter solenoid while the one below it is the actual starter.

This of course assuming that all other vital components of the car are working.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How do i know if my starter in my 1986 crown vic works


if the engine turns over when cranking its working. you don`t say what the actual problem is. at the starter on the large terminal you should have battery voltage all the time. on the small terminal you should have battery voltage only when trying to start the car. if you do have power here then while trying to start the car tap the starter if it attempts to turn over the starter is no good. if you don`t have power at the small terminal then you will have to check for power at the solenoid/relay on the inner fender on the drivers side on the S wire when trying to start the car. this wire feeds battery voltage to the starter on the small terminal, if you don`t the solenoid/relay is bad. if you do then you will have to check for a damaged wire from the solenoid/relay to the starter. sometimes the starter motor could have a bad ground connection were it bolts up to the engine.

Starter solenoid location


The Solenoid is located on the starter. Typically the solenoid/starter are replaced as one unit. Before you go replacing anything, rule out bad connections ,bad cables. Check all connections at battery. Especially check the ground connections from battery to engine block. See if the starter has a ground wire and check it. Check for corrosion in battery cables. Check connections on the starter, both the smaller wire and the larger cable from the battery. If you disconnect any of these wires, first disconnect the negative cable on the battery. Mechanics know how to 'jump start' the starter directly form the battery. If you know how to do this- try it. If you don't know how - DON"T TRY IT! What you can try is to connect a jumper cable from the NEGATIVE terminal of the battery to the BODY of the starter, not to any of the wires, and see if the car starts. This little test will rule out a ground problem

Where is the solenoid on this car?


There are several options.
You may have a solenoid mounted on the starter, or on the fender near the battery. You may also have a starter relay in the fuse box.
If the starter is not getting power, you may also need to check the neutral safety switch.

The starter solinoid is on the top of starter. Short the two large terminals on it, if the starter turns then the solinoid is faulty. If not then the starter is faulty.

My chevy monte carlo 2000 3.4 won't start it makes a sound similar to a drill ... I took out the starter and tested it and it passed but it definitaley sounds like the starter I don't know what it...


With the starter removed, have someone slowly turn the engine with a wrench (you may need to remove sparkplugs) while you check the condition of the ring gear around the flywheel. You may have teeth missing from it which would just let the starter free-wheel. Also check the starter's gear if you didn't do it before.
If those both check out OK, you may just have a corroded cable or clamp in the path to the starter. It draws 100-150 amps when loaded with the engine and any tiny bit of resistance will drop so much voltage that the starter won't fully engage.

Try tapping on the starter while someone else turns the key to start.If it goes you need to replace the starter brushes.Make sure that the starter cables are not rotted and that they are tight on the starter before doing this.
