I need to replace my starter and need help locating it

My car has 190000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Replacing the starter can be a bit of a tricky job as it is located usually down on the driver’s side of the motor underneath the exhaust manifold on the side of the engine block. It is mounted very close to the flywheel, usually in about a 10’ O clock position relative to the flywheel. As you know, this will require jacking the car up or putting it on a lift and getting underneath the vehicle to access the starter. In the event you need help replacing your [starter]https://www.yourmechanic.com/services/starter-replacement), I would suggest having an expert from YourMechanic come to your location to perform this job.
