What is the location of starter relay on a 1995 buick regal?

It's probably part of the starter itself. Look to see where the BIG positive wire from the battery goes. I'll bet it goes to a little cylinder that is part of the starter. This little cylinder is the relay and starter solenoid that engages the starter gear into the flexplate as it closes the relay to the starter to turn the engine over. TommyTrouble

I'm not sure what you mean by "slips". Is the starter making a grinding noise or does the starter sound like it is missing the flywheel completely? My first thought was a bad starter drive (part of the starter) but if you replaced the starter with a new one it shouldn't be that.

The starter on a vehicle is always located directly in between the engine and the transmission.

Different vehicle manufacturers mount this component on either the driver or passenger side, depending on the model.
