My starter made a noise when cranking so i replaced it,the new starter did the same thing immediately, so i thought it was defective so i replace it. Now less than 1 day, less than 10 starts, it is making the same noise again. What could this be?? Help & thanks in advance.

I did a maxima starter and after 3 starters it kept grinding and made all sorts of noise. I thought it was the flywheel/flex plate. I know it's a different car,but it was a nissan. I called other garages to see if they ran into the same problem. One garage told me to put in a bosch stater. I put in a bosch starter and the car started like new and had no noise. I don't know what the difference is,but that solved the problem. Every nissan i do now,i use bosch only in nissans.
