I have a '98 Firebird with T-tops. Whenever it rains i get a puddle in the hatch/trunk area, but not up front where the seats are. is this the t-tops leaking or the hatch seal? also my taillights have cracks in them and get water inside the lens as well.

I flushed the radiator and used bluedevil head gasket sealer. After turning off the engine there was a leak coming from or near my water pump, is it possible my water pump went during the flush and treatment process? If not what might be seen other diagnosis?

I did a full tune up on my 1991 Firebird Formula. plugs, wires, distributor, serpentine belt, fuel sensor. Now I have the check engine light comes on during normal driving when engine warms up and it loses power. Once I turn engine off and turn it back on it goes away as in reset mode then it happens all over again.

the top was going down at the time. I turned off the ignition and the smoke stopped. I restarted after a short time and returned to the garage with the top in mid travel.
