How do i know if its the starter
The only way to know for sure is to have a diagnosis performed by a trusted, certified mechanic. However, there may be tell-tale signs of a starter issue, such as a grinding sound when you go to start the car. I am not a certified mechanic, however, I do have much experience fixing cars, and have replaced a few starters. Depending on where the starter is located on the car, build up could occur on the terminals from the battery, resulting in a loss of electrical conductivity. You have to be careful when tampering with a starter, as doing so should result in an electrical shock. The battery should be disconnected before messing with it. My recommendation, however, would be to find a trusted, local mechanic that can help you determine if the starter needs to be replaced. You can always buy a used/re-manufactured part and have the mechanic install it for you (if they are willing to). Auto shops often get commission off of new parts that they acquire for you. Good luck!

The spark plugs are under the coil packs. remove the top plastic engine cover and you will see a coil for each cylinder, remove one coil at a time and with coil removed you will see spark plug in hole.

Nothing to do with your alternator. Transmission sounds possible. Also possible CV joints (constant velocity) - or your front wheel drive drive shaft(s). The mystery fluid leak is a definite concern. What was texture/color/amount of fluid? Where specifically did it come from?The "gurgling sound" is a new one to me. ???The CV joints is an easy check. Get under vehicle and grasp the drive shaft (one on each wheel) and give a good yank towards/away from you. If there is good resistance - or feels pretty solid, your shaft is probably OK. If it moves a whole bunch, it is probably broken and needs replacement. While you are there, check around the rubber ***** that is close to the wheel and make sure it is not ruptured or torn or missing. Anyproblems with this ***** only means inevitable replacement soon. (Some models have replacement boot kits, but I have never had any luck with them.)

Check the fan relays. They are under the hood. One of them more than likely is bad
