2001 Pontiac Firebird Problems

Windows Rattling and Scraping

The windows on the 1984-2002 Pontiac Firebird and Trans Am commonly lean in towards the cabin when they are rolled down, and a metal-on-glass rattle is heard with any vibration. As the problem advances, popping may be heard from the door as the window rolls up or down.

This issue is caused by failing window regulator rivets which no longer hold the window upright. This places undue strain on pads that prevent the window from contacting the metal door frame. After a short time, the pads inside the door wear out, allowing the window to rattle and become scratched in a vertical pattern.

To correct the rattling and popping noises, the window regulator rivets and pads must be replaced.

Roller on window guide may break

The roller on the window guide attached to the bottom of the window glass may break off and cause the window to come off track.

The Fuel Pump May Fail Causing the Engine to Stall or Crank Over But Not Start

The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.

I bought my WS6 new in 2001. As of 2015, my car has 210,000 miles. My car is still completely stock. During the first 100,000 miles - I had to replace the AC compressor while still under the factory warranty. The only other item under the hood the went bad is the alternator. I replaced both headlight gears with brass gears. I had to replace the turn signal light housings multiple times b...
has 126,000 on it so far so good, no big problems but now changed out front lights switch in car and worked for a half day and went out again replaced again and went out again. Not sure where there is a short now or what problem is. Any suggestions or same problems, please respond to this. It is a formula style.
Car engine threw a rod after only EIGHTY THOUSAND MILES. I took extra special care of this car. My mechanic was confused as to why it did it and so was everyone else who checked the car. What a waste of money that car was on top of terrible gas mileage I can't believe that the engine failed on me! Careful, and if you absolutely need this car, get some sort of mechanical insurance.
