If the car shuts off while the engine is on, it is NOT a starter problem.

If you can not see the starter when you look in the engine bay, then you have an automatic transmission?

Take a picture of the engine bay (need to see entire engine and transmission), so that I can draw on the picture
to tell you what to do.
