How do I replace the key lock cylinder in my 1997 Pontiac firebird trans am?


You will have to remove the air bag, steering wheel, clock spring, tension retainer, remove your upper and lower column trim covers, then you can get to the retainer for the old lock cylinder and remove it. You will have to unplug the connector with the orange and white wires for the chip reader for the VATTS system. I would suggest taking your new lock cylinder and your old key to a lock smith and having your new cylinder keyed to your old key so the correct chip will be read. It is usually easier to use your old key than it is to have a new key with the correct chip cut.

Having codes P0306 and P0316 show up for 2005 Ford Taurus


Well code 306 is for a miss on cylinder six and code 316 is for a miss detected on startup, which you probably already know.
Since I assume you have replaced the ignition parts for that cylinder,
the next component to check is the injector. You may want to check fuel pressure too.

How to replace a ignition swicth on a 1985 pontiac firebird


Disconnect Negative Battery cable. Disconnect electrical connector from switch. Remove 2 small bolts mounting switch to steering column. Remove actuator rod from switch if on outside, or it may be a knob underneath. New switch will usually be pre-set to "Off" position. Attach actuator rod to switch or mount switch over knob and mount to column with 2 small bolts, being careful not to change switch position while doing so. Re-connect wiring to switch, then Negative Battery cable. Check for proper operation with foot firmly on brake. Make sure that Accessory as well as Start and Run functions operate according to corresponding key position. Switch may need to be adjusted if out of sync.

Need firing order diagram 1985 F150 inline six


Easyer to explain then it is to get a diagram. Standing facing your truck cylinders are numbered 1 to 6. The front most cylinder being one and the back one closest to the cab is 6. The blackened terminal on the distributor cap indicates the number one spark plug wire position. In clockwise order from the blackened terminal firing order is 1-5-3-6-2-4.

2001 Firebird V6 Sparkplug Diagram


The Firing Order is 1-6-5-4-3-2
When you take a wire off of the spark plug of a running engine, there is supposed to be an arc.

Remove and examine the spark plugs. See what condition they're in. It may be way past time for their replacement. Also check the spark plug wires. These are often neglected, and break down after time.

I would look at the codes,, jumper the two upper connector holes in the diagnostic link with a paperclip,, turn the key on, and read the blinks of the check engine light,, first will come 3 12 codes then any error codes. If you get a repair manual for that vehicle it will tell you how to perform these tests.
