What does a starter cost? 1998 DOHC: Autozone has two offerings: $135 for a re-manufactured unit and $155 for brand new

What about the starter solenoid? The starter solenoid is integrated into the body of the starter, and cannot be replaced separately. You will need to replace the entire starter assembly.

New Answer It is simple to replace. They are located at the front of engine.

  • Disconnect Negative Battery cable first,
  • raise vehicle and support vehicle,
  • remove the electrical wires from starter,
  • remove mounting bolts (2 or 3) and remove starter.
I know this because I used to work on them. Answer Remove - battery cable

Raise and support vehicle

Disconnect wiring harness at top of starter

Remove starter mounting bolts

Remove starter Where to find the starter the easiest way to find the starter on any vehicle is to follow the wire directly from the battery down to the starter, it may go from the battery to a junction post used for jump-starting, but it will go from there to the starter because you need a direct flow of current from the battery to turn the starter over. Starters are typically found at the front - bottom of the engine.

Note that the front end of the starter inserts into the place where the transmission and engine join up, so look in the middle section At the end of the rad battery cable coming off the battery. Answer Disconnect Battery First It's simple. 2 bolts, two wires. Raise the front of the car, put jackstands underneath. Crawl under the front, look up, there is the starter. Remove the two wires, note their positions, one is big, the other is small. Remove the two bolts, remove the starter, be careful not to let it drop on your head, it might hurt. Replace the install the two bolts, install the two wires(they will only go on one way). Lower the car, reconnect the battery, and Voila! 30 minutes later, you are done! Go get an ice cream or a soda, you deserve a reward! Remove one post from battery then wire connections from starter. Remove mounting bolts and remove starter. Towards the front of the car about a foot back from the radiator bolted to the engine/trans.; it is accessible from underneath.

Sable Starter The starter on a 96 Sable with a 3.0 litre is at the front of the engine (looking down on the engine compartment with the hood open standing at the front of the car) where th engine and transaxle bolt together.To lay down under the bumper and looking up is the best way to view. Answer It's simple. 2 bolts, two wires. Raise the front of the car, put jackstands underneath. Crawl under the front, look up, there is the starter. Remove the two wires, note their positions, one is big, the other is small. Remove the two bolts, remove the starter, be careful not to let it drop on your head, it might hurt. Replace the install the two bolts, install the two wires(they will only go on one way). Lower the car, reconnect the battery, and Voila! 30 minutes later, you are done! Go get an ice cream or a soda, you deserve a reward! Answer Disconnect the battery, raise the front end and crawl under the car. The starter is bolted to the transmission bellhousing, and will be held on with either 2 or 3 bolts. There will be two wires going to the starter, one held on with a 13mm nut, the other held on with either an 8mm or a 10mm nut, or it may have a small spade type connector. There will also be a ground wire attached to one of the starter bolts with a nut. Disconnect the two wires and the ground wire, unbolt the starer, and replace. It is noyt difficult, and it will probably take you about 30 mins to do, once you figure our what tools you need, which you should be able to do everything with a basic socket set, as long as you have some deep well sockets.

Follow the positive battery cable; it will first lead to the starter solenoid and then continue to the starter.

Disconnect the - battery cable Raise and support vehicle Remove wiring from top of starter Remove starter mounting bolts Remove starter

Answer - 1992 remove + battery cable remove starter, I used a 3 foot extension to get to the one nasty bolt in back, put just in front of the left front tire..sometimes it pays not to get too close to your work!! Its not hard, but access to bolts are terrible. It look simple till you try and get a socket or wrench on the nut/bolt!! install new starter, hookup wires at starter, then battery+. crank, crank, zoom,zoom [with the 3.8] Inspect for damaged wiring in the harness for the starter. Sharp corners can cut..

Depends what year is it, on a 1998 it's at the bottom by the oil pan and there are three bolts

The starter is located just underneath the oil filter.

This is a fairly simple repair. You will need a socket set (you can do it with wrenches if you have to, but sockets make it much easier) and a jack.

1. Disconnect the negative terminal from the battery.

2. The starter is located directly below the oil filter. It is held on by two bolts which are to the right of the oil filter. One is easiest reached from the top of the car and the other from the bottom. If you have trouble locating the bolts, just take a look at your new starter to determine where the bolts are located. The bolts screw in from the driver's side of the car.

3. Once the bolts are off, the starter should be loose from the engine. (You can thank the designers at Ford for making this a particularly dirty job. The starter gets doused with oil every time the oil filter is taken off so get you can expect the bolts and the starter to be covered in grease and gunk.)

4. Maneuver the starter so that the terminals facing up so you can easily get to them from the top of the engine compartment. Pull the terminal cover off. Remove both cables from the starter. The starter should now be completely free.

5. Place the cables on your new starter and replace the terminal cover. Bolt the starter back in same position as the old one.

6. Reconnect the negative battery terminal and start the car.

Remove the Negative(black) wire off the battery Raise and support the car. using a 10mm wrench remove the smaller cable going to the starter. using a 13mm wench/socket remove the larger cable that comes strait from the Positive (Red) terminal of the battery from the Starter using a 13 mm wench remove the lower and upper starter bolts. The heads for these are on the engine side of the starter. They will likely be hard to turn at first.

the starter should now be easy to remove. Compare the old and new starter to make sure they match, then do the above steps in reverse.

Where is the starter solenoid on a Taurus - Sable?

The starter solenoid is on the starter. It's the smaller cylinder-shaped part of the starter assembly - the other is the starter motor itself. Unless you're lucky enough to find a local shop that offers the solenoid separately - or repair it for you, the most common repair is a new/rebuilt starter. See "Related Questions" below for more Integral to the starter. The starter solenoid is integrated into the body of the starter, and cannot be replaced separately. You will need to replace the entire starter assembly. there are many solenoids on that car. I am assuming you mean the starter solenoid? If so, it piggybacks on the starter. Integral to the starter. The starter solenoid is integrated into the body of the starter, and cannot easily/readily be replaced separately. You will need to replace the entire starter assembly. The starter solenoid is attached to the starter using a couple of screws. It is the part that the wires connect to. Unhook the wires and remove the two screws that mount it to the starter to remove.

What if your starter does not always work in your 1997 Taurus - Sable - But if you tap on it it works what do you need to replace?

The intuitive answer is: the starter.It's obvious that whacking on it is knocking something loose that is sticking.So the starter is going to have to come out - that's not surprising either.But, instead of condemning the starter to a complete replacement, I would suggest checking around for a specialty repair shop that might be able to fix yours.Autozone and the other national chains don't have those options, so you're going to find a "local" auto parts store and ask them for a referral to getting your starter fixed. (if they don't do it themselves).Getting the starter out isn't a big deal - pretty straight forward operation.See "Related Questions" below for more
