Question about 1996 Pontiac Firebird
Another important thing or things to check when you are having issues with overheating is:
Fan Clutch (if applies)
Electric Fans (if applies)
A/C Condensor (in front of the radiator and this item catches the majority of bugs, dirt, et. Just because you put a new radiator you don't necessarily fix the problem. A condensor stopped up 50%-100% can cause overheatings issues)
Thermostat (cheap to replace)
if you are going to replace everything above you might as well check the freeze plugs.
The thermostat is on top of the engine in front of the intake manifold towards the front of the engine. The upper hose should be connected to the neck. Never, attempt to remove the radiator cap or any other cooling system component while the car is hot. Always allow the vehicle to cool for a few hours before attempting to work on the cooling system. Most people like the way they look!
