Question about 2001 Chevrolet Astro
You may need to shim the starter.
The rebuilds are not very accurate in the pinion placement locations when the nose bushings are replaced. You should have those in the starter box or the local parts store will have some.
Be sure that the engine that is in the vehicle is the one you think it is.
There may be different pinion gears for a different model. Hondas do that.
11 tooth,12 tooth,etc.
Is it 4WD?

the noise might be from a loose bendix on the starter,
the bendix is a little gear in fron of the starter see if there is any visual point to see it nad make sure it keeps away from the flywheel if not have the starter repalced, this bendix have a spring to keep it away from the flywheel also with a flash ligh try to see the closes you can to the center of flywheel sometimes they get crack where they atached to the engine,
and on the shifting might be a bad transmission or the shifter has to be inspected for your mechanic

pull off the center console inside the van to expose the engine. the distributor will be right in front of you. remove 2 screws from the cap, and make sure you get the wires on in the exact order you remove them, or else it wont start. rotor is underneath cap, and i believe the coil is right there on the cap.

You may be in the group who had a bad starter cable. My 1999 had problems with the primary starter cable that runs under the vehicle. Its over $100 and like wrestling with a python to get it out.
If you noticed lights dimming or heard the radio crackling, the body grounds may corroded.
