Ok we found the starter, it is towards the drivers side of the car, in front of the oil pan. We had to jack up the car to see it. We were able to get the starter motor running, so we think it is the solenoid. What is the best way to remove the solenoid?

thank you for the instructions. My dad and I got it off, turns out it just needed the terminals cleaned.

Note: We did not have to remove the TC cover or the Trans cooler line clip.
