Starter Shot - Oil deposit HELP!!!!!!!!
 
Hello,

So my starter was shot and I took it out today but found oil under it. Attached pictures. Not sure if this should be normal or?

Would this be the reason of the starter going bad because I had replaced it only 4 weeks ago but had been fiddling around with the motor so not sure if that would have shot the starter.

Any help will be appreciated.

Pictures don't work.

Oil shouldn't take out your starter. Sounds like you have a short somewhere. Maybe a pinched wire during installation. Obviously you want to fix the leak though

Oil could be coming from a bad seal on the crank position sensor.
What brand starter did you replace with?
Some of the cheap autozone/orielly's starters are not known for their longevity.
