If we're talking about an automatic transmission, your symptoms indicate a valve body problem. The transmission control module or a shift solenoid inside the transmission can be faulty too.

2001 pontatic grand am 3.4 new battery and alternator .car not starting.also battery terminals are getting hot

Sounds like a bad starter to me....the clicking ...sounds like the solenoid is throwing the drive gear out of the starter engaging the flywheel, but not sending power to the motor itself to turn the engine over.The battery getting hot suggest a "stuck or shorted" starter motor. The starter is a two step process.
Of course the extreme end could be a seized engine. Try turning the engine by hand at the crank ballancer bolt [clockwise only,battery disconnected] and see if it turns freely.

1996 Pontiac Firebird 2nd gear start switch

The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

When i get in my jimmy to go to work its blowing hot air( with the heater on of course) and then there is a creaking noise coming from the blower motor area, then the heater will start blowing cold air...

Because the Main Gear in the Blend Motor has cracked or teeth have chipped and is now not keeping the heat/cold door to the Hot position. 3 fixes: Buy a new Blend motor, takes about 5mins to replace. Buy a new Blend Motor Gear, will take about 30mins to fix. Repair current gear with Epoxy, takes about 30mins and 12hrs for the glue to set up strong enough to use it.
