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

I have a 1991 Pontiac Firebird V8 would a problem with the steering column or a bad steering column cause the car not to start , like I can turn the key but no noise comes from the engine but the radio and lights will come on.

I had replaced the plugs, wires, did oil change, new battery, air filter, oil filter. It winds the starter but will not fire! Anyone know if this is because of it not getting fuel or? It ran before I parked it, just had a dead battery and just now decided to work on it :/

And now car dont want to stay running. What is going on? Please help.

I want to change the distributor cap, and can't get to it. What has to be moved in order to replace that part.

I ran the car into the ground at about 300k. it was a great car the whole time i owned it. i think the first problem i had was at 200k, and the speedometer cable broke...i moved it to a wet snowy area after many years in socal. great car.

my 02 Firebird has 89k miles so far. i do the maintenance myself and have never had a problem yet. but recently i've noticed a coolant leak and think it might be the water pump gasket. unlike other owners i haven't had problems with the T-tops leaking or any mechanical damage or defect. however the electronics tend to burn out like any GM. the driverside headlight motor and window motor. also...
