Most of these switches are loctaed in the trunk in case of an accident. When located dont expect to just press it and it will work. Sometimes you have to depress and hold the switch down for several seconds.

2002 pontiac firebird sputtering & stalling then a smoky smell. Any idea of the cause for this?

Sounds like maybe a fuel problem, check fuel pressure regulator it may be leaking and that is the smell. Pull vacume hose off and look for fuel.

Dropping fuel tank

I am not sure why you are dropping gas tank. Canister purge valve should be located near intake manifold under hood of car. hope this helps

2002 firebird ran out of gas, put in 2 gallons,won't start. Turns over and fires a little.

Takes a long while to get from tank to engine, and then it can flood out easily. Next time don't run out!

2002 Firebird

I bought my Firebird brand new and I didn't know this car had that option. The power window and locks are on the same relay, do the door locks and windows work with the key in "run" but engine not on? If the battery was disconnected it might have disengaged this feature. Check the owners manual, it might tell you how to turn it back on.

Fuel pump on 2002 pontiac firebird 3.8 v-6?

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Relieve the fuel system pressure.
  3. Drain the fuel tank.
  4. Clean the area surrounding the sender assembly to prevent contamination of the fuel system.
  5. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Fuel tank
    • Fuel sender-to-fuel tank retaining ring
    • Fuel sender from the fuel tank
    • Fuel pump from the sending unit 0900c152800a02fb.jpgFuel sender/pump assembly component identification
To install:
  1. Install or connect the following: NOTEThe fuel pump strainer must be in a horizontal position and must not block the float arm travel.
    • Fuel pump with new strainer onto the sending unit
    • New O-ring in the tank opening groove
    • New O-ring on the fuel sender feed tube
  2. Fold the strainer over itself and slowly position the sending assembly in the tank so the strainer is not damaged or trapped by the sump walls.
    • Retaining ring
    • Fuel tank. Torque the bolts to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
    • Fuel filler cap
    • Negative battery cable
  3. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position for 2 seconds, OFF for 10 seconds, then back to the ON position. Check for fuel leaks
