Stock street use, good investment or a waste of money? thanks, Mike
Replace the o2 sensor cleared the codes drove 100 miles still nothing on the drive cycle. After cleared shows everything fine but nothing on the drive cycle. Will it still pass Smog?
I was told later that this 3.73 posi-track 3rd member has 7 splines and my original 3.23 had 11 splines.
It has obviously affected the speedometer. Has that also affected the transmission?
My transmission is a 4L60-E with a street/strip torque convertor.
I really like the lower to mid range increased acceleration, but I sure do miss the higher speed without the overdrive. Any suggestions? Other than that everything mechanical on the car works great and no check engine lights. I just had it inspected yesterday.
Checked the fans with fuse wire both ran connected to the battery. Replaced temputure sensor and 3 relays. Temputure is at 245 degrees not turning on please help what did I forget?

I recently bought a 96 Firebird with great engine but front end problems.
My local mechanic did not find anything unusual except a poorly maintained vehicle and recommended struts, which I had him install. A few days later I started the car, put it in reverse but rather than motion there was just a sickening hard metal clunk from the right front. Upon inspection, the strut was hanging there and the wheel was separated from the axel, the chasis was resting on the tire.
Used JB weld to fix the hairline fracture in manifold missed a part so it blew out but trying again today. Pretty sure its got a burnt valve. Looking either for a quick fix to keep or a way to get rid of it. Spent 15 on the car itself and got almost 5 in it now
I noticed backfiring after easing off the gas.
convertible windows leak in the rain, and in the car wash.
How can I fix it.
