At the base of the engine you will find the starter.

The answer below is essentially correct...in relation to a BOSCH starter...If you have a Denso (Nippondenso) starter...the solenoid IS rebuildabe...you can get the part fr…om checker auto..part no ND34SOL, made by Victory Lap...about $17..search the web for photo instructions, and the kit comes with instructions as well. //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// It will be a small cylender attached to your starter. On a 3.3 v6 the solenoid is not rebuildable the starter and solenoid are one unit,average price for a rebuilt is about $90.00,the replacement starter picture shows two side bolts and the top one is a non threaded pin that locates in the top bolt hole of the engine,disconnect the battery first before disconnecting the single lead of the starter.Your problem may be a corroded connection and not the starter,but if you hear a click when you start that's the high current contact in the selonoid and you will have to replace the starter. *Note: Before going through the trouble of crawling under the car to change the starter, try swapping the relay with one of the same part number (like the horn relay) and see if it is bad. This might save you a lot of headache.
I just did my 1998 Durango starter today so this is applied information. 1. Set the parking brake and chock (block) both rear tires. Double check the parking brake. 2. Dis…connect Both battery cables (most people do one but if the ground falls to a ground source the circuit can still be completed. Do both its safer and insures no electrical issues) 3. Jack up the left front side (this isn't required but makes working under it easier and more comfortable) 4. Remove the skid plate (three bolts in front, two on each cross-member in back. These bolts are 15mm). Remove both the skid plate and cross member together. Just unbolt them from the frame. 5. Reach over left front tire through fender well and take the two nuts off the starter wires. The small ignition nut is 5/16. The one from the battery is 1/2. Move the wires out of the way so they don't snag the starter later. 6. Reach through the fender well again and remove the TOP starter bolt. This is a 5/8 bolt. NOTE: There is a transmission line bracket held by this bolt as well. 7. Crawl under the truck and remove the bottom starter nut (yes nut. its on a stud). This one is a trick because its in a tight spot but can be done with a 5/8 deep socket. 8. Now the starter is completely unbolted and loose. push it towards the front of the truck. You will find it hangs up on that transmission line bracket i noted in line 6. just bend the bracket a little bit (DONT GET IGNORANT WITH IT!! You will need to bend it back on the install). 9. The starter will now come out easily between the exhaust pipe and the frame (right where the skid plate bolted up). It may take a slight turn or twist to get it out but its pretty easy. USEFUL NOTES: This job took me about two hours to do. There is no specialty tools required. The tools you need are as follows: 1/2 socket or wrench (battery cables on both ends) 15mm socket or wrench (skid plate) 5/8 deep socket (starter bolts) 5/16 wrench (ignition nut on starter) To reinstall just do steps in reverse (dont forget the transmission line bracket)
It is part of the starter.
It is on the starter
It is inside the transmission, on the valve body.
It is inside the shifter assembly.
in side the transmission
On top of the starter
The solenoid is part of the starter.
Flywheel/trans area pass side/bottom. Follow the pos. batt cable to the end you will see a ft long object about 8" round-that's it.
It is an integral part of the starter.
It should be located on the starter housing itself. It will be the small cylinder or bump on the side of the larger, cylindrical starter housing, and usually is what the wirin…g is attached to.
It is inside the transmission, on the valve body. It is inside the transmission, on the valve body.
The best way I find to test a solenoid is by removing it from the starter. Then, once off, use a set of jumper cables, attaching the positive and negative end to a battery fir…st and then at the solenoid end the positive cable to the positive bolt on the solenoid. Then, using the negative cable, make contact with the push-on terminal end of the solenoid. This should result in the front spring-loaded end kicking forward. If it doesn't happen try the other push-on terminal end and make sure that the positive section of the jumper cable is on the correct bolt. Trial and error usually goes along with these things so don't stress too much about it.
It is on/inside the starter.
