Question about 1997 Honda Passport
Whoa! Before you beat the tar out of your starter, clean both battery clamps, removing the negative one first (always), the posts and also trace the cable down to your starter; loosen the terminal and retighten it and then follow the negative battery cable to where it is attached to chassis or engine block and clean that terminal too.
Finally; are you sure the battery still has ****** needed to deliver 120-200 amps?
Shotta may be right since the Bendix (it engages and disengages the starter gear/flywheel) could be full of gunk but I would check the simple (and more common) sources of trouble.
