Pontiac Firebird Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Pontiac Firebird

A door window may move slowly or stop in mid travel due to a failing power window motor. The affected window may start working again after the motor cools off. Replacing the faulty window motor will commonly correct this concern.

The head light door actuators may fail causing the head lights to become stuck in the raised or lowered position.

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.
