95 taurus starter

I have been asked to help replace a starter in a 95 ford taurus. I have done general repair work, alternators, brake parts, radiators, but i don't know if this job may be too much for me. Does anyone have an idea of the level of experience needed for this job? Would a Chilton's or haynes manual be of any use?

HI Bill, looking at my Haynes manual for '95 Taurus the starter removal is pretty straight forward. Removal of mounting bolts (remove negative ground cable first). On the automatic Taurus the starter will come out between the radiator and the subframe. If it is a standard transmission the starter will come out between the subframe and the engine. Happy New Year. I hope this helped. Ref: Haynes repair manual, Section 5-13.

Replacing the starter on the 3.8 or 3.0 engines are pretty easy. Remove the NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE FIRST.
