    If your starter was the original from 94 chances are you have the older Valeo D6RA which had glued in magnets. These failed at an alarming rate and when a magnet came loose the result is a dead short and the starter jams up as it cannot spin with the loose magnet in the way. It was replaced with the D6RA-75 which has metal clips inside that retain the magnets better and also a longer bendix gear. Mine burned out on a 96RT I had back then. Took this photo when I replaced it.
