1998 Cadillac Deville V8 Wheel Drive Type unknown Automatic 109850 miles

I have a 98 cadillac deville. I recently replaced the spark plugs and wires. The next day my starter went out and when I took it off the starter housing was broke off. I have replaced the starter 3 times in 4 days, and the housing is breaking on all of them. It is a remamnufactured starter from Autozone. The fly wheel teeth look good. Is it just the starter or could something else be wrong. Please Help

My other problem is it started running Hot.I had the radiator replaced in June.I replaced the thermostat and radiator cap. I don't see any evidence of leak from the water pump housing. How do I know if my head Gaskets are blown. I also noticed white smoke coming from the tailpipe bad, water is getting in the oil from somewhere. PLease help

Autozone parts suck, dont buy parts from there, oil and other liquid stuff is fine, do you have to fill the resivor with coolant at all? Make sure the fans run, both of them, in frt, how do you know coolant is in the oil?
