I had the same problem at about the same mileage. Replaced the power steering pump and the start up screaming went away! ( The Jeep's and mine!)

I recently took my vehicle to a transmission shop and they had to rebuilt the transmission right through. I was recently told that the transmission is a common problem in these vehicles. Sad that GM can not fix or recall the transmisison since there is a problem.

Need more info -- but I will try to help you as much as i can. If the starter is not turning -- you will have to ck your cables from the battery to the engine. So you need to ck the positive or red cable to the starter, this one is the large wire on the starter soleniod. Ck it all the way to the starter, from the battery and any conections in between. It must have a good conection and be hot same as the battery voltage (+12.+dc). You will have to ck the ground or black cable conection to the frame and also the engine block. The battery grounds to both locations. You have to have a solid conection to turn the starter on both of thses wires. Ck these wires and the conections to the starter and the engine. Next problem could be a bad flywheel. The flywhee has teeth on it like a gear- and the starter has teeth that mesh into these teeth to turn the engine over. The flywheel could be damaged in the area that it is in now at rest, so the quickest way to find out is to turn the engine over by hand. Using a ratchet with the right socket fitted (to the crankshaft end-- the largest pully center bolt) turn the enging 1/4 turn and get the ratchet out of the pully and try to start the engine, if it turns over and trys to start you have a bad flywheel my friend.
