At the very back of the engine where the engine connects to the transmission. Bolts on to a mount and engages the flywheel to start the car.
This works because the brushes wear out which results in an inadequate electrical contact. By gently tapping on the back of the starter with the hammer, the brushes are knocked back into place so they can make contact one more time.
Whirring, grinding, and high-pitched noises are the usual sounds of a bad starter. Since the symptoms of a bad starter can often be mistaken for a battery or alternator problem, make sure that your battery is in tip-top shape before ruling out a starter problem.
In most situations, jump-starting the car won't do anything. If your battery is in good working condition, it should normally be able to supply the starter with enough current to make the car start. But, nothing is ever set in stone in the world of auto mechanics.
