97 WONT TURN OVER

1997 Oldsmobile Aurora • V8 FWD Automatic • 250,000 miles

97 olds aurora started making this horrible metallic screeching sound while starting. You could tell that it was hard for the starter to turn it over, but once it started the noise would fade out after 5 or 10 seconds and the car would run fine. Now it wont start. You can hear the starter click, but that's it. It wont turn. Also it leaks coolant, and power steering fluid. Could the problem be a siezed pulley, water pump, or ps pump.

Could be the starter motor, starter relay, park and neutral switch and ignition switch-Double check battery condition and connections to incude the starter motor side
