Q: Starter removal

asked by on

Starter removal for my 2006 Toyota Tacoma

Hello. I would need to know which engine that you have in your truck to know the correct removal process for the changing of this starter. If the engine is not cranking, then it may indeed be the starter, as that is a common failure on this truck. If you are thinking of having your starter replaced, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to perform this.
