I'm not sure about the 4AFE but on a 4AGE is located right under the exhaust manifold.. I think the 4AFE starter is on or around the same location.

Under the intake manifold. Its in a really hard spot to get to if you're just jacking the car.

Behind the engine, under the intake manifold, center of car. Stand on passenger side fender and you can see it from there.

I also thought the 4af/4afe starter was on the intake side, between the engine and the firewall .

From the top eh? You may be onto someting. I know it's not an easy chore from the bottom. People saying under the intake are correct. You will have to raise the car, or at least the passenger side quite a bit. It helps make the passage easier also by unloading the suspension on that side. It seems like it may not come out but it does with some finangling. First disconnect battery. Believe me. Take off entire air box, top and bottom. The two bolts holding the starter come from 2 differnt directions The top is from the drivers side. It will have a wiring loom hiding it(unless this job has been done before and the prev. person did'nt bolt it back down) This loom has a nut or bolt holding it from accessing the top bolt easily. Move the loom enough to access the top starter bolt. The starter bolt is I believe a 14 mm about 2 inches long. Take it out next. From underneath disconnect the 13mm nut on the lug and unclip the solinoid wire. The bottom bolt passes from pass. side towward drivers side and is easier to get to IMO. (but then I have some longer extensions for my ratchet. Not much room to move a ratchet and it may be very tight (if never removed) so be sure the socket is set well and square so as not to strip the head. I turn my wheels to the left and come from the top of the A-Arm with about 2 ft' of extension so I am sure it sets well and I'm not torqueing out of square. Once it breaks free your cool to go on under neath. This is just my way. You may get it just fine from under the engine. I also use a breaker bar first then use an air ratchet. Wobble extensions are also life savers IMO. Once unbolted it's just a matter of getting around the tie rod and down out the hole between the frame and engine. Good luck and hopefully it's not caked in grease. That always puts more frustration.

i did it this way as well, i had to have someone reach from the pass side to hold the starter in place so i could get the 1st bolt in, but from there i had it easily. tho i think i removed the intake and evap canister.

yea on a lift it's not that bad, but I don't think most of us have a lift lol. Even on a life the older neon alternator is a pain, takes forever to get the bolts on and off because of the lack of room to do it.

Sunfire gt thermostat is also a pain.
