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.

On a vehicle that old, particularly a Firebird (which tend to have a high probability of exhaust modifications), it is hard to say. The BEST way to find out, would be to MEASURE the pipe.

I have this junk that was starten and the eignation was not turnin over .then we dropped the gas tank thefuelpump was not lettin gas to the next line so we took care of that nasty job for a girl . he had...


The humming noise is from the fual pump. I had to change out 3 pumps before one would work. Put a pressue gage on the fual line to the carb and it should stay at +20 lbs for at least 1/2 day. Most likely the fual lines are ok and so is the fual filter. It is a very dangerous job to change out a fuel tank pump. I always have a machanic to the job. Think it over, safety first! And if the machanic installs a faulty pump then he will install another new one at no charge. Good Luck

Spark plugs


Unfortunaly This is a Common Problem on the Firebirds. You should be able to just Loosen the Exhaust and get to them on Most models. I know how Frustrating it is, Just vision how I felt when I tried after installing a 502 Chevy in my 86'! Never fun but Nesseary!
