Default is my starter bad?

sometimes when i go to start my truck it ticks like the battery is dead, but i just got a new one, then after i turn the key a few more times it will start but it sounds like an airplane coming from under the truck, as if the starter is still going. so then i have to turn the truck off and turn it back on until it doesnt do it anymore.......any feedback is greatly appreciated

Sounds like the starter drive gear may be binding up. If you're 100% sure that the starter isn't mounted cockeyed then you should exchange it for another one and inspect your flex plate for damage.

Flex plate (or drive plate) is the correct term for what most people incorrectly call a flywheel on a vehicle equipped with an automatic transmission.
