How do you adjust head light buckets on a 1987 trans am

First you have to unplug the headlight motor, then you should see a turn knob up top next to your headlights. You might have to push the lights up or down as youre turning the knob but that should work. Thats how my 1983 is.

My problem is I cannot get the licence plate bulb to come on...can you help? I have a 1987 pontiac firebird

That light runs of your tail lights, so either you have a bulb out , or a bad ground you would need to pull the whole fixture out and clean the surface they ground on the car its self, if that doesnt work you can cut the ground wire and use a self taping screw and connect it to your bumper for a better ground

1987 pontiac firebird, does anyone know how to fix dash lights.?

you have to take out the gauges, they will be on the back. In some cases you have to take apart most of the dash to get the instrument panel out, sometimes you can just take the trim off the instrument panel. I had to take apart most of my dash in my 86.

Question regarding 1987 pontiac firebird 2.8 litre V6. I followed the fuel line from the tank, made sure the filter was clean and followed it through right up until the manifold and undone the fuel line,...

Yes that is normal, as your fuel pump will cycle to "charge" the lines with pressure. Make sure you have spark. Also, if you can, plug a noid light into the injector harness to see if it's pulsing as it should while turning over.
