Hello. The starter should not have anything to do with the check engine light. Since the check engine light is on I would scan the computer for codes. I am assuming that the engine has a serious misfire, which can be caused by a number of things, or it is running lean possibly from a fuel system issue. Both will cause the vehicle to run like this and the exhaust to get very hot. I would start by checking the computer for codes.
