I have a 89 pontiac firebird Trans Am "GTA" 5.7L tuned port injected. My engine gets hot somehow and my car has a quick start but lower power afterward. What could the problem be?


Fix the radiator cooling problems. You will damage the engine if you keep running the car in an overheated condition.

1. Replace the thermostat in the cooling system
2. Replace the water pump
3. Flush the cooling system thoroughly and re-fill with the correct coolant. Bleed any air out of the system otherwise you will have problems with air blockages and thus poor coolant flow.

You probably do not know how to do any of this so take it to a reputable workshop or cooling specialist to have it done.

1996 Ford Taurus is heating up really quick if driven 5 - 10 minutes over 60 mph


If water pump is old,like over 70,000 miles on it,replace it when you do the fan belt and tensioner.
A new thermostat and a radiator flushing might also be in order. don-ohio (:^)

99 Firebird still overheating after repairs and antifreeze


overheating is most likely a bad thermostat, but the coolant loss is a second big concern. Does the exhaust look like steam? You could have a cracked block and the coolant is leaking into the engine. Also check the oil for contamination.

No heat


are you getting any air into cabin?? cause if you ar getting air but its not coming out hot then it may be a bad heater control valve. If you are not getting any air period then its a bad blower motor or blower motor relay.

I have a 1996 pontiac firebird with the 5.7 L it has lost some of the power and smells like fuel and has black smoke on start up. The fuel system has been worked over and there are no codes thinkin maybe...


Neither cat nor sensor.
You have a leaky fuel injector (stuck open).
Black smoke is unburt fuel.
Obtain a mechanics Stethoscope (like a doctor's steth, but has a rod onthe end instead of a disc).
You will find the faulty injector quickly.
Best to replace it.
(By the way, white smoke is Water and blue smoke is oil)
