Firebirds with a 5.7 liter V8 do not have timing belts. They have chains that can last hundreds of thousands of miles. It is basically the small block chevy that has been around since 1955.

Did you jump the timing belt cogs on the belt ? if it jump'd that would cause it to not start or them pesky control modules under the rotor sometimes even the pickup coil / did the power wire fall off the distributor terminal ? there should be plastic shrouds you can take off to peek at the timing belts (5.7 ohv) see if it's shredding apart and time for new 1 / if it did i hope the valves didnt hit the pistons / they bend it's bad . average life of a timing belt is 80,000k or so many years .

Why is my 1989 Pontiac Firebird hesitating and now wont turn over?


How long since a tune-up? Include air filter, fuel filter, gas injector cleaner...Also check the Idle Air Control valve on your 3.4 V-6...It can be dirty or clogged over time...Located on the air intake plenum...your auto parts store can also show you a diagram...Fuel pressure must be constant also, your Firebird is worth having the fuel pressure regulator checked, as well as the fuel pump...

I hard wired my 95 Pontiac Firebird 3.4 v6 and still wont start what could the problem be?


What did you "hard wire" exactly?

If you are saying you took power from the battery to the starter, then the car should crank, but probably won't start unless the key is also in the proper position.

If it doesn't crank at all, then it's either a dead battery, a bad starter, or a seized motor...

My 95 firebird with the 3.4 v6 motor, out of the blue, started running hot today and hit 250 on the dash.. i hotwired the fan cause it wasnt comming on even when the temp 210,thats why i done that,, and...


you might want to check the fan relay switch it out with one that you dont need tho run the car then if the car stays cool you know that its the relay. but if that doesnt solve your problem try replaceing the temp sending unit that controls the fan there should be to temp sending unit one for the guage and oe for the fan.help this help.

At times cranks and runs fine other times it will not crank


Hello edspring1...the little key chip you mentioned is the onboard security system for your firebird...GM called it the VAT system..it's possible this could be the cause of the no start conditions, sometimes they will reset if you disconnect the negative battery cable for 30 mins.
I really dont think that is your problem though...under the steering pillar...there is a "slider" type ignition switch...meaning...the terminals slide togather to make contact when the key is turned...these darn things get worn to a point they start arching and eventually wont make contact at all...i replaced one last week on a 95 firebird that had the same problem you are describing now.
i'll post a pic of the slider set in position for a tilt steering and non-tilt column....note the difference.
Good luck...i hope this helps...please rate me a fixya.

95 buick park ave car running radio off,igniton on accradio works


Who ever took the radio out is guilty. The power wires must have been reversed. One is supposed to have power all the time, (memory)and the other just when your ignition is on. Apparently, they got mixed up.
