Default Replacing Starter Motor

So my moms Taurus is obviously a big POS, and the starter motor went today.
I was just wondering what kind of tools I would need to replace this thing, Canadian Tire seemed to think I'd need a hoist... would Jack Stands not do the trick?

Thanks.

I'm not familiar with a Taurus, but I have never heard of needed a friggen hoist for a starter. It should be like 2 bolts and 2 wires and require no lifting or jack stands. Lift the hood and eye it up, it should be very hard at all.

It's possible that it has to be done from underneath. On some cars the starter is not accessible from above. I am not that familiar with the Taurus either to answer for certain however. If it does need to be done from below I don't see why jack stands wouldn't be sufficient.
It might also help if you state exactly what year and engine it is. There are a few Ford people on the board. You may get more help in OT (where this thread might end up anyway).

Okay, I'll mention it in OT... but just for reference, the engine is the 200HP 3.0 V6 (Vulcan I think it's called), and the year is 1998.

Thanks
