Re: Joys of changing a starter
Some Toyotas have the starter in the "v" underneath the intake. Obviously a tech didn't design that, but to be fair to the engineers- I've never heard of one needing replacement. As a former Honda tech I can't remember ever replacing a starter on a Honda with under 150,000 miles. As far as car companies are concerned, if you get 10 years or 100,000 miles out of a part they over-engineered it.
