    Ok, so I am sitting there cranking the car, and it sounds like there's no power. Well I do this for a couple minutes then smoke starts pouring out of the starter. So, I need a new one.

    The question is what starters will bolt to a B16A? Can I pull a D series and use that, or does it even bolt up? And does OBD even matter on the starter?

    any b-series hydro should work fine. a d-series won't. obd doesn't matter. its the same plug for 1 and 2.

    try pop starting it.... or simply roll the car a little bit- sometimes theres dead spots on the starter..

    That's how I have been starting it, but no this isn't a dead spot, it is smoking, like a chimey, if I crank it more than once.

    if its dead, it shouldn't smoke... maybe you have a short somewhere?

    I was thinking that, but the looked and I can't find anything, plus all other electronics are fully functional. If it is a short, it has to be in the starter itself, because it only smokes and smells when I have tried cranking it a few times.

    Well, I got my new starter in the mail today, 99 ITR. Cost $70 bucks, and now it cranks for a milisecond and turns over, nice. Here's the old one, you can see where the power wire was just cooking it...
