mwasr has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Default

My car at times will not start, this usually occurs after it has run for a while. I can let it sit overnight or for several hours and then it will start. When I crank the ignition, during the times it won't start, there is no noise coming from the engine at all. The radio and all electrical devices inside work fine, the engine just refuses to start. From what I've read online I believe the problem is the starter. I can't find a schematic of the engine that shows the location of the starter. It's a 2000 Taurus SES with a 3.0 V-6 engine. I have no mechanical knowlegde hardly at all. I figured if I can at least find the part then I could possibly replace it myself. I'm a disabled, single father with limited funds if you know where I'm coming from, can't afford a garage at the moment. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

For both it's right at the flexplate, on the radiator side of the engine.

You can follow your battery cable...one leads to the alternator and the other one to the starter.
