The starter is very simple to replace, 1st always disconnect the battery, the wires at the starter are hot with 12 volts always present, remove the 2 attaching bolts for the starter to the engine block, then remove the wiring, one heavy cable and a bunch of smaller wires, one of those goes to the starter solenoid, mark it, the others are what are called fuse links and provide power to the rest of the car, clean up everything and then re-install in reverse order.

How can you tell what type of transmission is in my 1998 chevy malibu


Whether your Malibu is:
(a) 4 cylinder 2.4L SFI DOHC Vin "T", or
(b) 6 cylinder 3.1L SFI OHV Vin "M"

SFI = fuel injected
DOHC = dual overhead camshaft
OHV = overhead valves
Vin = 17-digit unique car identifier - the 8th digit identifies the engine (not the transmission), and
as you can see, your engine will be identified by the 8th digit = "T" or "M"

your car has the Chevrolet 4T40E automatic transmission (aka "automatic transaxle")
Here are some specifications:
