Sounds like the solenoid on top of the starter is bad. If the plunger return spring is broken, the starter stays engaged all the time.

if the starter is TRYING to start the engine check to see if your getting fuel. if it doesn't then check battery connections, starter, fuses. if no fuel check fuses, pump, and filter. if it is simply not firing check plugs, distributor cap and rotor, and plug wires. HOWEVER if it ISN'T turning over, but the starter is turning the motor then check the TIMING BELT.

96 Chevy half ton changed oil pan gasket now truck will not start?

If mot turning over, I would check the starter wiring in the area of the pan to make sure nothing got damaged. If turning over a not firing, I would check the distributor for damage from lifting the engine. Nothing on the oil pan has any thing to do with starting, the engine will be able to start even without one , but will not last long. Need more help contact me through my board and I will try to help.

If it runs with starter fluid, it means it is firing but not getting fuel. it could be anything from the fuel pump relay in the fuse block under the hood, or it could be the fuel pump gone bad. If it is the fuel pump its a $250 part located under the rear seat. good luck
