Engine was running fine before starter was replaced, now starter works and engine doesn't. What could cause this?
have the same problem?

DID YOU (OR YOUR EVIL BUDDIES) DISCONNECT THE BATTERY BEFORE YOUR TOUCHED THE STARTER?
JUST TRYING TO PRY IT OUT!
IF NOT, DID YOU GET SOME "SPARKAGE" UNDER THERE, DURING THE "TAKE OFF---PUT ON" PROCESS. EVEN A LITTLE?

The battery was completely removed before removing the starter and replaced after the starter was replaced.

DO YOU HAVE SPARK?
I TRY TO MAKE THINGS EZ ON MYSELF (I'M USUALLY THE ONE TO GET NAILED BY VOLTAGE, EVEN IF I'M THE ONE STANDING THE FURTHEREST AWAY!)
I HAVE ACCUMULATED FIVE OF THESE OVER THE YEARS, I KEEP TWO IN EACH JEEP (LIKE MY NAVIGATION COMPASS, I HAVE A "BACKUP" JUST TO LET ME KNOW THE OTHER IS FUNCTIONAL, PEACE OF MIND. IMPRESS OTHERS!)THEY WORK VERY WELL, ARE REALLY INEXPENSIVE, COMPACT, QUICK TO INSTALL AND GET RESULTS----IF IT'S REALLY SUNNY, "ARTIFICIAL SHADE" HELPS TO SEE IT BETTER. OR YOU CAN DO THIS THE OLD FASHION WAY, SHOVE A NAIL OR SIMILAR INTO THE PLUG BOOT AGAINST THE METAL INSIDE, HAVE SOMEONE "CRANK" WHILE YOU HOLD THE WIRE W/ NAIL ABOUT A 1/4 INCH FROM THE METAL OF THE ENGINE.
