The starter on a '98 V-6 Passport is located at the bottom of the engine along the transmission housing on the drivers side. It is only accesible via the bottom of the car, so you'll have to get the car up on blocks or a lift. I've never removed one (yet), but it looks to me like you have to remove the exhaust pipe/catalytic converter in order to get the thing out of there. Removal of the actual starter is the easy part, as it only has 2 bolts holding it in.

I own a 1998 Honda Passport V6 2WD. Yesterday I replaced my stater. It is very easy to replace. I parked my passport with the driver side wheels on the curb, this way i did not have to use a jack. I went underneath and removed the two bolts (16mm) that held the starter in place, and then removed the wiring from the starter with 14mm socket and then the plug which was all very easy to do. After doing of this I removed the starter with no problems, I DID NOT have to remove the exhaust pipe/catalytic converter. Just be careful with all the debris and dirt underneath your vehicle, i had some fall into my eyes. I went to autozone and bought a new one for $124 with the Core (without the Core is +$50). In all it took me about 20 minutes to do. Like I said it is very easy and can be done without the removal of the exhaust pipe which everyone thinks is needed to be done. Have fun and be careful

You have to remove the exhaust pipe from exhaust manifold on starter side. Now you have access. Get exhaust pipe to exhaust manifold gasket first, you will probably need to replace it after taking them apart.
