Icon5 Starter Question?

My Truck isn't starting as good as it used to. I got my spark plugs and wires replaced and my 02 sensors replaced about a month ago. And I was wondering if replacing the starter myself would be an easy fix or should I just take it in to the local repair shop. Oh and does anyone no where the starter is located? Pic would be awesome. Thanks!

The starter is easy to replace but I don't think thats your problem. If the engine cranks once you turn the key then your starter is fine.

Starter is simple to change right beside the oil pan not sure if it is on the left or right

Starter isnt your problem if it starts up

If the plugs were replaced they could have been misplaced and it's miss firing

Which would be weird casue that was done a month ago how could you stand to drive it that long doing that.

When they plugs were changed did the Check engine light come on?

If it is miss firing it will make a loud pop sound when you put your foot on the gas and probbaly shake

the check engine light didn't come on after they installed the plugs & wires. It doesn't shake or make a loud pop sound or at least not yet.
