Question about 1998 Pontiac Trans
This problem you have is caused by a defective starter solenoid, the heavy electrical contacts that provide the current to the starter motor are burned away, a common problem with this type of starter (the starter is a Denso design gear reduction), the solenoid is attached to the starter and comes with a rebuilt starter, to replace the starter disconnect the negative battery cable, raise the car and support with jack stands, the starter is located at the back of the engine and will have several wires going to it, make a note of where each color wire goes and disconnect them, once the wiring is disconnected the starter is held in by 2 9/16" bolts, remove them and drop the starter down, reverse to install new/rebuilt starter motor
