Well the starter selenoid might be shot.. causing the gear inside the starter that contacts the flex plate to not pop out and contact.. or the starter teeth and/or flexplate (flywheel) teeth might be extremely worn down..

1. You will have to replace/rebuild your starter.
2. You can find the starter on the front of your engine, driver's side, on the front of the bellhousing.

PS. Where in Wisconsin are you at?
