Default Starter problems...HELP!!!

i just replaced my starter with a brand new one from Autozone, When i put it in i heard a griding sound so i shut off the truck (94 6cyl 4.0) i brought back the starter and got a new one and put that in, still had the grinding sound, so i replaced the solinoid, and i still have the problem. finally i decided to start it and crawl under there to see what the problem was... and is saw smoke coming from the starter. naturally i shut off the engine.. the fly wheels good, i just had the transmition re done due to a clutch problem, theres a new radiator and a new belt in it... along with a new power stearing pump. ive been pumping money into this thing and i cant seem to find the problem. Can anyone help me out?

So did the starter actually turn, or did it try to turn the flywheel but burned up in the process? Make sure you got the right starter.

Also, is the motor hydrolocked?

It sounds to me like the engine is running..


Possible that the ignition key is sticking in the start position and causing prolonged run of the starter.

He said burning. I think of burning a starter when the engine is locked XD

auto and manual starters are different. Make sure they gave you the right one
