Question about 1989 Ford Econoline
If the starter motor remained engaged when you released the key, the underlying cause is likely a bad starter solenoid (first item the positive battery cable connects to after the battery) Remaining engaged, can damage the starter itself. Replace the solenoid, check the starter and you should be finished. (Or also replace the starter if it was damaged)
If the starter was stuck and not engaging, the bendix drive inside the starter has failed...In that case it's best to change the starter as even though it's replaceable, generally by the time it needs replacement the starter is worn in other areas and would need complete overhaul.
