Motor has been replaced not sure the year ? 1.0 3 cyl automatic

Old one clicks a few times before starting
New one whistles a few times and then starts

Without looking a few people suggested it could be the grounds ? Not sure where or how ?

Really disappointed
Replaced the battery Replaced the alternator

Sometimes you can get oxidization of the contacts at the starter. Removing them and reinstalling may have "cleaned" the contact enough that the problem "went away" for now.

I wonder what a multimeter should read on the starter wires ?

weak batteries, bad grounds, bad connections, and bad solenoids make them click.

the starter that whistles probably has a bad or sticky bendix.
