What makes my 2002 Pontiac Firebird grind when driving and/or turning?


Sounds like a wheel bearing. Jack up front end and spin wheels by hand and listen for grind. Same for rear wheels. Make sure brake linings are good all around. Do the swerve test. Drive down road bout 40mph and swerve moderately one side to other. If noise gets louder with weight shifted to one side more than other its most likely a wheel bearing.

Tapping sound when I start the car which gets louder with acceleration


This may be a pulley or somthing that is running with the start of your engine. If its a tapping sound that gets louder as you accelerate, that is usually a valve noise or somthing internally. This is a very bad thing if the noise is comeing from the engine inside under the valve cover. If thats the case then check the oil level and take it quickly to an auto repair shop for a diagnosis. Another culprit as mentioned in the beggining is a pulley that is either loose or out of round, whick does not cost to much to replace.

Hope this Helps!

It won't stay running when put into gear


check for engine vacuum leaks and clean the throttle body and idle speed control air bypass valve, also have the system tested for stored trouble codes, below is how to do that test manually. go to the link.

Popping sound when I give it gas


Change plug wires. If you want to check first, drive it into a garage, or wait til dark, and have somebody brake torque it while you watch under the hood for spark jumping.

Motor running in the back of an 89 gta 5.7 t.p.i.


The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank which is in the rear of the car. It's powered by an electric motor. Check the owner's manual for location of fuses and relays. Some are located under the hood (either on the fender or firewall), others are under the dashboard (near your left foot), on the side of the dashboard (look for cover on side of dashboard with driver's door open) or even inside the glove compartment (if you have one). That sound of a motor running is normal, and may be louder if the tank is close to empty.
