You have to post the year, make, and model of the vehicle so we can offer more help.

If it is a manual transmission try push starting it and switching it off then try cranking using the starter and see if the starter motor catches the flywheel teeth. There is a chance a chunk of the flywheel teeth has been broken off.

It is an automatic. I turned the motor by hand and still not engaging. No visible damage to flex plate

Did the starter come with any shims? Did your old one have a shim?
