Having problems with your 2000 Chevrolet S-10 ?

2000 s10 starter last only 2 months,

\015 I've put 6 starters in the last 2 years. The problem is that it doesn't stay engaged. It will kick in but not long enough to start the engine. I've replaced the battery cable, which was about junk. All the connections cleaned or replaced(under the battery box). The weird thing is it is fine when I replace it and start acting up after 2-3 months. The starters are Delco-Remy and are warrenteed each time, but something must be killing the life of these starters. Could it be a weak relay or something?

Answers :

I would check current draw with a good ammeter & se how much current the starter draws when cranking. I owuld guess about 400 amps, but check with Delco. Other possibility is starter is binding on flywheel.
\015\012Did you disassemble one of the faulty staters to see if armature is rubbing on magents or coils?
\015\012 Are these starters remans or new? Remans sometimes have problems.
