Have any after market parts ben changed since the starter went out? New flexplate of flywheel? Sounds like you are being sold the incorrect starter. Or worse your flex plate has stripped teeth. Look in and inspect flywheel before installing starter. As far as buying new starters and etc... always take the old one with you, as a comparison for the new replacement to ensure you are getting the correct components. Hope this helps.

Open up the tail gate, you will see two torque screws on the inside beside the tail lights. take these out, this will free up the housing and you can change it from there.
