Did you have starter tested? Are you using oem starter? I'd have to check actual voltage readings and grounds for the starter circuit. At the diagram, terminal B is hot all the time. Terminal S goes hot with key in the crank position.

You may have to check starter amp draw, you may have a internal engine issue, causing the starter to work harder than normal.

Seven starters and nobody can figure it out? Are you using new starters?

Yeah the starter is new and dead within 3 days of replacement.I drop in a rebulit engine in september of 2010 that when the problem started with the starter. The auto shop I went to was a joke they didnt do a honest job and gave me nothing but headache. Im already passed the warranty for the engine. Im worried if it is internal. When I test the starter I been told that every things ok. But then my check engine lite came up and I was told a crank sensor is no good? But it not the sensor is it?

Can you turn the crankshaft by hand. If it cranks good but won't start, the problem isn't the starter. The crank sensor is for the rpm signal, no rpm signal, the vehicle will crank but won't start.
