I have a Ford F250 diesel and having a problem with the starter burning out. This is the second one in 1 month. I go to crack motor and the starter just stars spinning unter it burns out. I can even take the keys out and still spins until I disconnect battery. Any thoughts?

I have a 2000 Honda Accord with 138,000 miles on it. It's going strong, but I wonder, with its age, should I replace things ahead of time to prevent breakdown? Like a water pump, or fuel filter. I know it needs a timing belt after 100,000 miles. Anything else other than regular things like tires?
