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?
It sounds like you might have a faulty starter driver or a flywheel with missing teeth. Take a look at this article about starters, it should help you figure out what's going on. Good luck.
