    The starter is below the intake manifold. I suggest you check the battery, cables and starter before replacing anything. This could be a bad connection, cable or the starter.
    Also, pull the fuse box cover off (engine fuse box) and check the condition of the battery cable connector inside the fuse box (eyelet connector with 13mm nut). If the connector shows signs of corrosion, replace the cable.
