Disconnect the battery, disconnect the two connections to the starter soleniod, then remove the top & bottom mounting bolts.

The top bolt is difficult till you discover the trick:

Remove the battery, then the access plate underneath (about 4" x 6"). Just reach through to remove the top bolt, or to easily hold the bottom one while someone removes the nut.

Just replaced one in 2 hours with our 15-year-old, including 30 minutes figuring this out

Solenoids are commonly mounted on the side of the starter. Many are integral to the starter and are difficult, if not impossible, to change or repair. FriPilot

On the manual trans there is no dipstick.You check level by marks on speedo gear in transaxle which you remove by removing one 8mm bolt on drivers side of trans axle.It uses Mercon V automatic trans fluid.

it is located by the frame next to your front tire. You can put your truck on ramps to get under there and change your starter.

The starter solenoid is located on the top of the starter.

If it was a manual trans it was a five speed. If it was an auot then it was a three speed with an electronic overdrive. So with the electronic overdrive it was a four speed trans but the overdrive failed frequently and was disabled by many owners.

Replacing a starter on a 1989 Toyota Corolla is not very difficult to do. The wires will need to be disconnected from the old starter and labeled or taped. The starter is held in place by two bolts, unscrew the bolts and remove the old starter. Then replace with the new starter.
