I had some work done on my vehicle and when I got it back the starter was making some bad noises, I took it out and saw the shim was bent up so I replaced it and had the starter checked out, it worked fine. Then when driving the starter engaged until I could pull over and disconnect the battery cable. The starter burned up, I replaced it with a new/rebuilt one and it's doing the same thing.I admit that when I replaced it the 1st time I forgot to disconnect the battery and the wires arched when it touched metal and sparked a couple of times. Could this be where the problem is?
have the same problem?
