You mean you have a 1995 4.3 liter Firebird. sounds like you have a bad coil or a faultyspark plug wire causing an arc (grounding) somewhere in your ignition system

I have a 2002 Pontiac Firebird. Hazard lights work. Turn signals were working without clicking sound, now not working. A local parts shop said the problem is the turn signal flasher unit. Where do I locate...


There are two seperate flashers, one for the hazards, and one for the turn signals. They are located behind the lower instrument panel below the steering wheel. Turn flasher should be the one on the right. These are also notorious for the front light sockets to corode or burn out. check their condition and be sure to use connector lube when replacing bulbs there.

95 FIREBIRD 5.7 WONT START HELP PLEASE?


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 .

Cylender


Hi,

Depends on whether your Tribute has the 4cylinder or a V-6.

4 cylinder - standing at front of vehicle, #4 would be right most;
V-6 standing at front of vehicle, #4 would be left most on the bank closest to front.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
