Question about 1979 Pontiac Firebird
Once we start the car and let it run in park for a few minutes, we put it in gear and then it dies. We have had a mechanic look into it. One spark plug was not firing and he put an extender on it and said it should run okay . That was a week ago, and now we have the same problem again.
It sounds like timing to me if it dies when you put it in gear.it can idle fine but when you put it in gear and it dies then you have timing problems
