right now pete its that noise you hear when your car is already started and u still turn the key

Did this noise start only after you replaced the starter?

Before I had all the work done it wasn’t turning over at all

O.k., your starter may need to be shimmed or the starter you installed is faulty where it is not spinning out far enough to engage the fly wheel fully.I have seen this cause this fault here and had to replace the starter again with a better quality starter or with the same starter by turning in the starter you just bought under parts warranty with the facility you bought it from at no charge to you.Usually it is needs shimmed it will still turn over the engine but in this case, it is not contacting the flywheel teeth enough to crank over the engine so I suspect the new starter is faulty.

I would remove the starter and inspect the teeth on the fly wheel and see if they are all chewed off.If they are then the fly wheel needs replaced.If they are not make sure the starter was bolted on properly and if it was then it needs to be replaced again.I have seen faulty starters new out of the package before.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete
