Go to your local auto parts store and ask for a Haynes repair manual for your car. It will provide you with the information you are looking for as well as how to successfully remove and replace your starter.
You could also use your computer and join "alldatadiy". It costs about the same as the Haynes manual and will provide specific details for this as well as other repairs. The advantage to alldata is that you can get the info right away whereas you may have to order the book and wait a few days for it.
The starter is on the backside of the engine between the firewall and engine. If you get underneath it look up from the passenger side of the support that goes front to back and you should see it there. There are 2 bolts if i remember right one threads into the starter itself and the other has a nut behind the solenoid if I rmember right
The Toyota Corolla E11
series's starting system consists of the battery, the starter motor,
the starter solenoid and the electrical circuit connecting the
components. The solenoid is mounted directly on the starter motor. The
solenoid/starter motor assembly is installed on the upper part of the
engine, next to the transmission bellhousing.
Hello suewagner. The crank sensor is mounted above the starter motor on the firewall side of the engine. The sensor picks up the signal direct off of the crankshaft through a machined hole in the engine block. I have removed them without dropping the starter but learned that in most cases it is easier to drop the starter down to access it. Here is a diagram for you.
I would suspect the starter solenoid has failed. A starter solenoid (or starter relay) is the part of an automobile which relays a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion. In many vehicles the solenoid also engages the starter pinion with the ring gear of the engine. The starter solenoid receives a large electric current from the car battery and a small electric current from the ignition switch. When the ignition switch is turned on, a small electric current is sent to the starter solenoid. This causes the starter solenoid to close a pair of heavy contacts, thus relaying a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion. The starter motor is an electric motor that initiates piston motion in a car's internal combustion engine before it can power itself.
