The Toyota 22RE four-cylinder engine was used in several vehicle models over the years but it was most common in the Toyota pickup trucks. The engine is basically a fuel-injected version of the earlier 22R carbureted engine. Many of the components on the 22R are interchangeable with the 22RE. The starter motor is one of those components. It sits on the passenger’s side of the engine at the back and attaches to the bell housing.
