    Can you turn the engine over with a wrench, because it sounds like the starter is trying to start the motor but it won't turn over, because of a mechanical issue. Did you get the engine kind of hot? Is the new starter factory quality? Does the battery have at least 12.6 volts? New Batteries are sometimes under charged, don't assume that it is fully charged, because it is new.
