Remanufactured starters / alternators / etc. are not very good and don't last very long. Typically these are rebuilt cheaply. Bad rebuilds are a constant issue.

Now, could be something else but very well could be the starter. That's why I purchased a Denso when I replaced my OEM starter.

As for the Cyl #3 misfire, could be a lot of things but I'd start with checking the plug, igniter and igniter connector. Something could be bad or loose.

You can swap the plug w/another cylinder and see if the issue stays with Cyl #3 or moves to the swapped Cyl. If that happens, it is a bad plug.

If it doesn't move, then swap the igniter. If it moves, bad igniter.

It's a slow process but in the end can save you a lot of headache & cash from buying replacements you don't actually ned.
