Did this mechanic scan for engine codes? A parts store will do it for free, and he should have done it 1st thing. If he didn't, dump him and find a real mechanic. You need to know the codes to determine what is going on. From what you describe, it sounds like an emissions problem, not electrical. The parts store will plug a hand held scan tool into the Pontiac's diagnostic port, and 'read' any codes stored in the cars computer. These codes turn on the check engine light to let you know there is a problem. They can tell you what the codes are,and suggest ways to fix the problem. Let me know how you make out. If you have any further questions, post them here with the code #'s.

Yes, it's the auto choke. These things have to be very carefully adjusted, and really need adjusting to your particular climate. Especially for winter. The choke is applied when the engine is cold, (push the throttle to the floor and release it). At this point, do not press the throttle pedal again. This applies the choke. Then when the engine fires, the kick-off opens the choke to a second position where the engine will run and idle fairly fast. If you allow the engine to run in this position for about a minute, a little 'kick" on the throttle will release the fast idle and the choke. The engine now idles at its normal speed. So you can see the proper adjustment is critical and is done using precise measurements and/or gauges. NOTE: In really cold weather, you may need to pump the trottle pedal 2 or 3 times (no more) before releasing. When you have the choke adjusted, the mechanic will replace any faulty parts.

That sounds like a starter selenoid problem. The selenoid is what the key switch engages to supply power to the starter. I am not sure of the location but many are on the fender well under the hood. I hope that helps.
