No, I do not reccomend mechanic in a can (or tab). Here is why: your cooling system is made up of small little passageways, in the rad and heater core..once plugged, must be replaced.

I reccomend find the leak and fix that. Replace rad, if the leak is there, rather than repair.

I have a 89 pontiac firebird Trans Am "GTA" 5.7L tuned port injected. My engine gets hot somehow and my car has a quick start but lower power afterward. What could the problem be?


Fix the radiator cooling problems. You will damage the engine if you keep running the car in an overheated condition.

1. Replace the thermostat in the cooling system
2. Replace the water pump
3. Flush the cooling system thoroughly and re-fill with the correct coolant. Bleed any air out of the system otherwise you will have problems with air blockages and thus poor coolant flow.

You probably do not know how to do any of this so take it to a reputable workshop or cooling specialist to have it done.

Hi there, have you checked the colour of the oil in the motor, if not clear or normal and have a milky look, it sounds like the head gasket is on the way, it will still drive but the symptoms sound like the head gasket, Check the oil. Hope this will be of some help to solve the problem

1991 Firebird Formula, timing shift during warm-up.


Change the coolant sensor, they are faily cheap and usually easy to get to. They are also prone to failure on the early years of fuel injection.

DO NOT use cooling system seal tabs (or similar compounds) unless otherwise instructed. The use of cooling system seal tabs (or similar compounds) may restrict coolant flow through the passages of the cooling system or the engine components. Restricted coolant flow may cause engine overheating and/or damage to the cooling system or the engine components/assembly.

Install or connect the following:

Water pump. Install the water pump bolts. Tighten the water pump bolts first pass to 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm); tighten the bolts final pass to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm). Water pump drive belt pulley and bolts (if applicable). Tighten the pulley bolts first pass to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm); tighten the bolts final pass to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm). Surge tank hose Heater hose Outlet radiator hose to the coolant pump Drive belt Cooling fan and clutch assembly Upper fan shroud Inlet radiator hose to the water pump Air inlet duct Coolant

Ignition Switch is not holding key back on its own


Ok what year firebird is this?? Was this a completely brand new unit? I know that you can get part of it rebuilt and used. It is very hard to tell sometimes. The 93 to 95 4th Gen Firebirds, Camaros are very bad for this. I have a 93 formula and have had to replace this unit twice, it isn't very much fun and isn't cheap either. If you can run a code reader on it and find out the codes it's sending it would be a huge start. I also had problems with the computer and had to replace as well. Some of the problems with the computer actually mimic the ignition problems....Give me as much info as you can and I'll tell you exactly what is wron and how to fix it...

Want to know about this code reader


I'm not sure if an obd2 will work on your year...I own a 93 formula and have a obd1 reader. It is for 92 or 93 GM to 98 GM vehicles. It works extremely well for what you would be using it for. It won't tell you exactly what is wrong, but will definately point you in the right direction.
