There was likely nothing ever wrong with the starter motor as stated by iminhell.
i second this. i had a shitty rebuilt autozone alt and it died within a couple months. they may be cheaper but, the quality is horrible. bought a brand new alt and never had a problem. but also check ur wires like stated.
