I bought a 1999 plymouth voyager, v6, 3.3l and after I changed the battery, the car doesn't want to start. It makes a strane noise, like something is broke inside the engine or somewhere. Any idea what happened and how can be fixed? Thanks!

No, the problem occur after I put the new battery. What makes me wonder is the noise that seems to came from inside the engine: it is like something is broke.

Some times if the battery don t have enough AMPS in it
The starter will make this kind of noise
You can try to crank the engine by hand and listen for noises

Very uncommon put possible
Remove oil cap
Have a helper crank the engine
You watch the rocker if it move
Also cycle key three times off on
Read if you have codes
