Where can the starter be found?
its in between the engine block and the transaxle in between the fire wall and under the intake manifold. May have to get to it from both under the car and above, below is a 1994 but it is similar and gives the lacation but the 98 is a little bit lower down I believe than the 98 but it has some test you can try.

O'Rielly has them from $73.00-$172.00
