There's a bleeder valve I used on my 95 T/A, open it up and the air will come out gradually spitting a little out at a time. I replaced my radiator, took me a while to figure this out, after losing my bleeder valve, that was rough. Just don't undo the bleeder valve too much, if it falls off, good luck finding it, it's brass, so magnets won't pick it up and you'll never find it again. A bleeder valve costs at least $20 at GM. So be careful.

It may not be as simple as opening the radiator cap and dumping in the correct amount and type of coolant. Some engines are terrible about venting the air out of themselves when you try to fill them. On my 95 firebird with a 3.4L, I find it easiest to loosen the thermostat housing and fill it until coolant starts to leak from it. If you do this you will want to know if your gasket or o-ring is good enough to seal when you tighten it back up. Other wise you may need to find a plug in the block or intake or maybe even in both cylinder heads to vent the air out. Trying to run the engine to vent themselves doesn't always work and you could end up toasting your engine.

Good Luck

I need to know if the transmission from a 1998-2002 pontiac firebird transam will bolt on and work on my 1995 pontiac firebird trans am?


You have to know the motor bell housing bolt pattern

Even if it bolts up, it won't work

1995 is OBD1 & 1996 on is OBD 2

I would never replace one failed trans with another used one,
that won't work,it will just slip or fail & be of no use to you

Pull your trans & take to a trans shop

That is called an over the counter & your get a good price to
rebuild it,maybe even wholesale ,since they don't have to R&R
the trans or diagnose anything

1978 Pontiac Transam, wiper motor, wiper switch and transmission all work fine.. can not get the wipers to work, Where are we going wrong. There is power to all 3 sources all wires are working.


Interesting problem! Since you have power to all three, it isn't the fuse. I can't download the diagrams right now, but I think there is a wiper pulse module in the 1978 Pontiac Transam. While it mainly controls the intermitant or delay wiper mode, if it shorted out it could cause nothing to work right. You need to verify that you do have that module first.

How do you replace the coolant on a 1995 3.4 pontiac firebird


There is a drain on the bottom of the radiator on the passenger side of the radiator to drain the anti-freeze. Remove the radiator cap and loosen the drain plug on the radiator, spray some WD-40 on the drain valve to help get it loose. Drain the radiator, tighten back up the drain plug and refill, should be 1-11/2 gallons.

How do you change a water pump in a 95 firebird transam 5.1


good luck I have a 93 and there is very little room to do anything in those engine bays. Your car has a 350, or 5.7 liter engine not a 5.1....It isn't really all that hard if you go out and get yourself a haynes manual, it will walk you through anything you need to do on that car step by step. Just take your time and don't get too frustrated with the lack of space.
