Depending on the mileage, you may have a bad distributor (or in the case of an LT1, the opti-spark). Check the water pumps weep hole and see if coolant is leaking out of it. If so, it tends to leak straigt on to the Opti and will casue misfires and rough running issues. Ive personally chased this issue before with my car. I started off with the plugs and wires, then a coil, fuel filter and nothing made it better. Once i replaced the Opti, all was well. You do need to take the water pump off to remove the Opti so it may be a good time to just replace the pump while your in there.

SOURCE: where do you check transmission fluid 1995 pontiac

You check the transmission fluid by removing the fill plug on the passenger side of the transmission. Remove the fill plug and if you get fluid leaking, your full, if not then place your finger in it and feel for the level or just add ATF. There is also a drain plug at the bottom and you can change the transmission oil by draining the oil out and replacing it with syntactic or by adding additives to the ATF so you can more life out of the transmission fluid. Your transmission will take 2.8 liters of ATF to refill if drained. Good luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: my turn signal lights wont work on my 95 firebird formula

Go under the dash on the drivers side, and locate the two flasher stat units. These are small round aluminum 'cans'. They plug in, and have flat blades on the bottom. (You of course won't see these flat terminal blades until you unplug them)

One is for the turn signals. One is for the four way flashers. I can't tell you which one is which.

Past this point, check all the grounds for the turn signals. The wiring harness at the front will have one, or two leads, (Wires), coming out that bolt directly to metal. Either sheet metal for the car, or to the frame. These leads have flat, round terminal ends on them, with a hole in the middle of the terminal.

The lead's terminal end bolts can work loose causing a bad ground, and/or, there could be corrosion in-between the terminal end, and the area of metal it bolts to. If so, use sandpaper, and clean the terminal end, plus the area of metal it bolts to.

There are ground leads, (Or lead), that come out of the rear wiring harness also. Check these.

Still no?
Then your turn signal bulb sockets have corrosion in them. This causes a bad ground.

You may be able to use a rolled up piece of sandpaper, and clean the socket.
(Also touch up the lead, {LED. As in the metal lead}, contact point in the middle of the socket. This is for the Positive connection, but it doesn't hurt to clean it while you're there.

After this is the turn signal switch in the steering column.
(My money is on a bad flasher unit)

95 firebird the cooling fan wont come on unless I unplug the fan sensor then it comes and cools the car right down

The fan relay is grounded by the computer (ECM) so you need to test that pin on the ECM connector. When you unplug the ECT sensor you send it into default that is why it runs. Please keep in mind that the fan is not activated until the engine reaches 220F-225F that is well passed the middle of the temperature gage scale . Make sure you really have a problem.

What sensors are bypassed when the cooling fan is put on a fusible link on 89 firebird

I'm not sure I completely understand your question, if youre wiring the cooling fan directly to power (with the fusible link) you'll be bypassing the PCM's output to the fan relay...the PCM uses the Coolant temp sensor (CTS) as an input to determine when to turn the fan on.

did you jump the timing belt cogs on the belt ? if it jump'd that would cause it to not start or them pesky control modules under the rotor sometimes even the pickup coil / did the power wire fall off the distributor terminal ? there should be plastic shrouds you can take off to peek at the timing belts (5.7 ohv) see if it's shredding apart and time for new 1 / if it did i hope the valves didnt hit the pistons / they bend it's bad . average life of a timing belt is 80,000k or so many years .

How do you change a water pump in a 95 firebird transam 5.1

good luck I have a 93 and there is very little room to do anything in those engine bays. Your car has a 350, or 5.7 liter engine not a 5.1....It isn't really all that hard if you go out and get yourself a haynes manual, it will walk you through anything you need to do on that car step by step. Just take your time and don't get too frustrated with the lack of space.

Fans wont come on

Does the temperature gauge on your dash work okay?

The coolant temperature sensor provides a signal to the PCM to tell it when to turn the fans on and if its a three wire coolant sensor it also feeds the signal to the gauge on your dash and if the gauge on your dash is not working, it could be a clear sign that the sensor is dead.

However, to start with the simple things, first check the fuses that power the fans, it will be a large fuse probably in the under the hood fuse box and maybe in the 30A range. Check the fan relays as well.
