Question about 1996 Pontiac Firebird
You might need to replace your thermostat. If it going bad it may not be opening. its only about 15 bucks for a new one, and while your at it change your temp sensor, also about 15 bucks. If that doesn't help then your water pump may be going out. The easiest way to cheack that is the following: Make sure the engine is cold i.e. let is sit for several hours. remove your radiator cap and start the engine. look inside where your radiator cap was and see if the coolant is circulating. If it is, your pump is probably fine. CAUTION don't do this if your engine is even close to warm, otherwise the coolant may come shooting out and burn you severley.
