88 ford escort started sticks on when started usually if you hit the
ceillinoid started will unstick latley while driving started will come on
automatically hitting cillinoid does no good i'v went through 2 startes in
2 days the only way to stop the started is to disconnect the battery both
new startes are chewed up completly nothing left to either of them car
wont start at all anymore not even if i put it in 2nd giver her a push and
pop the clutch i'v put 5 started 4 cillinoid in the car in the past 6
months and cant figure out the problem maybe ignition switch or fly wheel
not quite sure
For crying out loud stop throwing parts at the problem and think about
it. How does the current get to the starter? Follow the positive
battery cable, where does it end? Starter relay, ok, large cable from
the starter relay goes to the starter... Ok, see the current path?
What does a starter relay do? Contacts close via voltage from the
ignition in start position to send current to the starter.
Here's the $64k question: Why would the starter relay send current to
the starter if you weren't trying to start the car? (hint: you need to
know something about how relays usually fail).

Starter was sticking on - would unstick if you hit the solenoid.
Now the starter comes on while driving. Hitting the solenoid
won't stop it - only disconnecting the battery.
I've installed 5 new starters and 4 new solenoids in 6 months.
Every starter is chewed up.
Now the car won't start with a push (manual trans).
I can't figure it out - maybe ignition switch or flywheel?
A bad ignition switch can cause a starter solenoid to fail to disengage.
A bad ignition switch can cause a starter solenoid to fail to stay disengaged.
A bad ignition switch can cause an engine to fail to start when pushed.
Note: Check for flywheel gear damage before installing any more starters.
