The idle on most firebirds are set from the factory and are not adjustable but you could look on the sticker on the bottom side of the hood or above the radiator. the emission control or the drive belt routing sticker should have it on there. hope this helps you... god bless

I have a 4x4 89 s-10 4.3 v6 fuel injection. When I start my truck it idles high. After 30 to 50 seconds the idle goes back to normal. If I put in in reverse or drive when idle is high my back tires spin...


Sounds like the rear pads are worn out, your front brakes are keeping the truck from rolling. You need to have the high rpm checked for that 30-50 seconds as it is called the "cold start routine" and is meant to rev the engine for that time period. There may be an adjustment to keep it from over revving, check the specs for the rpm.

Even if you fix the rear brakes, the stress on the U-joints and differential or transmission is needless and can be fixed by limiting the high rpm in the "cold start cycle".

1999 firebird 3.8L low oil pressure at idle only when hot


your oil pump does that on purpose - more noticeable with a dented oilpan as pressure is slightly increased. nothing to do until it goes (if it goes) unless you want to throw parts at your car anyways.

It won't stay running when put into gear


check for engine vacuum leaks and clean the throttle body and idle speed control air bypass valve, also have the system tested for stored trouble codes, below is how to do that test manually. go to the link.

1998 firebird 3.8 v6 92000 miles runs great until 3000 rpm then it runs rough and starts to miss


Same thing happened to my 94 firebird. Did your car run hot at any point? Mine overheated and ended up melting a couple of plug wires.
I replaced the wires (and plugs). That took care of the problem.

89 Accord LXI Idle problems


It's fuel infected and it has a vacuum leak, most likely a PCV valve that is stuck open, I've seen a few now. Replace the PCV valve 1st, if that doesn't fix it, start looking for a hose that has come off.

Timing chain setting for 89 Firebird


Yes, there are two timing marks, one on the crank gear, and one on the cam gear. The crank gear mark needs to be at the top, and the cam gear mark needs to be at the bottom (lined up w. one another).
