Check on the transmission to see if the shift linkage is working properly. The linkage may have just come off. Sometimes the grommets wear out.

My96 Pontiac firebird starts but wont stay running


How long since a tune-up? Check for applicable trouble codes. To check codes, yourself, at the least, you need an obd2 code reader.

1996 pontiac firebird will start up and then it will die . The fuel pump is working.


Well the fuel filter would be an easy choice, but it could be something electrical.
You'll need to figure out if you are missing fuel pressure or spark when it stops running to know how to proceed.

Reverse lights on 1994 Honda Passport wont work


I think the problem is in the shifter itself. Probably a bad contact after all of the years of use. If your real sneaky you could probably get inside the shifter and bend the contact point back into place.

Turn signals dont flash on 95 firebird formula


There are dual elements bulb and single element bulb.

You need to see is there two contacts inside the socket.

If you accidentally put a single contact bulb into dual contact socket......it will cause this problem.

Check it out.
