I gues that depends on how much you are willing to do as far as repairs and maintenance on a 21 year old vehicle. What is the mileage, is there any maintenance records/receipts, overall general condition, cost ... there is alot to consider

Where can i buy new drum brakes for my 1992 firebird and how much will they cost?

Go online to, Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys.

Now with online customers, the latter 3 will sometimes offer discounts for setting up a new account. You can get the online discount AND have the parts shipped free to your local store to pick up.

All you do is look up your vehicle and see what fits it.

I put a 305 from a 1988 caprice in my 1991 firebird but it will not start no spark

check the pick up coil inside the distributor. You will have to disassemble the distributor to replace it or just buy a new one!

88 Firebird Power Failure

Buy a ECU from a local salvage and swap them out. It might just work. If not then you might have a short somewhere in the system causing it to shut down.

I have i pontiac firebird 1988 and im haven a hard time installing a fual pump bcause muffler pipe is under it

You will probably have to remove the tailpipe. Also there was a service bulletin put out on your car if it is a 1988 Firebird with the 2.8 V6 Engine. Not sure what engine you have but if it is V6 let me know and I will give you the service bulletin Information.
