Question about Saturn Cars & Trucks
It could be a defective starter assembly. There are two parts to a starter assembly: the starter motor and the starter solenoid. The offending culprit is usually the starter solenoid. Test the starter. Mount the starter in a large vise. Using jumper cables, attach the ground cable from a battery to the starter body and a positive cable to the starter positive post, where the main battery cable attaches. Attach a jumper wire from the solenoid-activator connection. Carefully jumper this wire directly to the starter positive post. The starter should spin firmly, and the starter drive-gear forcefully extend. Examine the starter drive-gear teeth. They may show much less sign of wear than the ring-gear since they are much harder steel. Replace the starter assembly anyway. The problem is the solenoid an electromagnet--is weak and is not driving the gear far enough into the ring-gear. This improper mesh creates grinding with just enough force to start the vehicle. If you do need to replace your starter this site looks like it has cheap prices, free shipping and great reviews http://www.buyautoparts.com/starter.htm

If its 4wd then you have a concern with the transfer case being stuck between 2wd and 4wd. If its not 4wd then its a broken planatary gearset inside the transmission,

I am going to guess a bad vacuum line some where in the 4x4 hub system.
Operationally vacuum holds the IWE ( Integrated Wheel Ends ) out, and once vac is removed the spring engages the IWE.
I get the bad vacuum line ( or vacuum box ) from the fact that the problem happens after vacuum has been applied to the IWE to pull the spring out. I would also guess this does not happen when in 4H or 4L.
Here is a vacuum block diagram of the IWE vacuum system
It could also be the IWE vacuum solenoid, there is a TSB on this ( right click save as ).
