Replacing Starter Motor In 1991 Es250

Recommended Posts

The mechanic said that to replace the starter motor/gear that starter grips in a 1991 ES 250,they had to drop the transmission. Estimate 6.5 hours of labor. Does that sound reasonable?

Replacing the starter motor: Aprox. 30min. Replacing the driveplate/ring gear: aprox. 6hrs. Sounds good if that is what is wrong. With the starter motor off you can see inside the transmission bellhousing. The only reason that the driveplate/ring gear would need to be replaced if the teeth are chewed up/ missing, or it is bent. The mechanic (if he is being honest) will have no problem showing you if any of these conditions exist. If he says that he has not pulled the starter yet, take it somewhere else.
