Since this is such a generalized question, the answer will also be so. Usually the starter is located on the lower rear of the engine block. Since many vehicles today utilize "transverse," or crosswise mounted engines, one might ask the question, what is the rear of the engine. That is the end which attaches to the "bell housing" and transmission, and is opposite to the end on which the water pump, alternator, belts, etc. are mounted. To assist in identifying the starter, they are generally cylindrical in shape, and depending on the engine size, starters vary in diameter from about three inches to about eight inches. Their length varies from about six or eight inches to about ten or twelve inches. Also, many starters will have a "starter SOLENOID" mounted on top. The starter solenoid will also be cylindrical in shape, but smaller than the starter itself. j3h.

This varies according to the make and model of the vehicle. On many cars and trucks, it is located in the engine compartment, usually on the fender or firewall, and commonly on the same side as the starter motor. Often you can locate it by following the large positive lead from the battery. It will commonly connect to one side of the starter relay.

The starter on a 94 Isuzu Trooper is located on the bottom, passenger side of the vehicle. It is found at the rear of the engine, at the flywheel.

The starter is usually located on the passenger of the vehicle, under and to the rear of the engine where it bolts to the flywheel housing. Steps for changing a starter: (1) disconnect the negative cable at the battery; (2) raise the vehicle and put jackstands under it for support (3) block the rear tires to keep vehicle from rolling backwards; (4) under the vehicle, disconnect the red cable and the black wire that connect to the starter solenoid; (5) unbolt and remove the two bolts that attach the starter to the flywheel housing; (6) pull starter out. Installation is reverse. Good luck...

If the vehicle is a Front Wheel Drive vehicle, the starter will be located in the front lower part of the engine. Just look for a large black wire that is attached to the motor and just follow the wire and it will lead you directly to the starter motor. Good Luck.

The starter on a vehicle is always located directly in between the engine and the transmission. When a starter engages, it kicks out a rotating gear that meets with the flywheel of the vehicle, which is also a major component that mates the engine and transmission together. Different vehicle manufacturers mount this component on either the driver or passenger side, depending on the model.

I believe that the solenoid is located ont the starter itself. If you can just follow the positive battery cable down to its next junction towards the starter motor; that is usually where the starter solenoid is located.
