This is probably late. but I'll answer it anyway. I am not familiar with the car, but the starter is always mounted on the engine where the engine and the transmission but up. in FWD vehicles its normally in front looking from the front of the car. most of the time its only two bolts holding it on. when you find it check a few things first.

check for excessive oil on the starter. oil will damage the windings in the starter. if your engine leaks copious amounts of oil, your starter might have gotten drenched.

also check the electrical connection. make sure they are not burned up, and follow the wires and make sure there are no rips or tears in the coating.

i hope this helps

Why won't it start?


did you replace it with a new starter or a wrecker starter, maybe a bad starter. check the teeth on the flywheel they maybe damaged causing the starter not to engage. you may have to shim the starter. were there any shims when you pulled the original starter off.

Starter on my 91 ford ranger 4 wheel drive starts my pickup a couple time then it just spins have changed it 3 times now


Assuming the starter motor spins but doesn't engage to turn engine over to start you could have a bad starter drive which is part of the starter assembly or possibly damaged/missing teeth on flywheel ring gear. Depending on year and model vehicle, some starters you can replace just the starter drive otherwise you need to replace the whole starter. If you changed the starter look at the flywheel.

Starter needs replaced


STARTER PROBLEMS

It can be faulty starter or there is loose connection from battery to starter. The starter assembly gets power from battery. Check voltages at starter wires and see if you are getting 12 volts or not. If not then its no power issue due to low battery volt or no connection between battery to starter.

Starter will not turn


Does the starter make one click when you turn the key to the start position? If so, your starter solenoid contacts are worn/burnt. You can either replace the starter (expensive), or remove the starter & have the contacts replaced (inexpensive); Starter contact replacements are a common repair item.
