do you keep replacing it with with new or remanufactured starters?

If the starter worked properly when installed, shuts off when you release the key, I suspect you are getting bump starters, unless you are abusing them with a hard starting motor.

Do you have the right size wire going to the starter? Should be about 4 gauge, Are the wires in good condition? Are the making good contact? Does the battery have 12 volts? You may also want to check starter solenoid...
