Probably something internal in transmission. Looked it up and your vehicle should have a 4L60 transmission in it.

You can use the vehicle's VIN and it will provide you with the build specs of the car.

The car won't release out of park if there is any strain on the transmission, (eg, angled forward or backward) when parked on even a slight incline. What would cause this and what is the solution?

sounds like your brake switch mounted on top of the brake pedal . remember you have to put your foot on the brake to shift out of park . there is a swith that releases the shift should be a 2 wires mounted on top of brake pedal under dash

1993 pontiac firebird automatic transmission will drive good but when I shift into reverse it will not move?

its not a sure fire fix but my 93 trans am did the same thing it had all forard driving gears and acted fine but no reverse so i with no better solution changed out the trans fluid and filter and just kept driving it but before i whent anywhere while the car was running i cycled it through the gears everytime b4 i left and about 2 weeks later i started it up and reverse was back i think it was due to a metal shaving that got lodged in one of the valve bodies a trans fluid flush is also a good idea i hope ur as lucky as i was

So i have a 1993 Firebird Formula, it has a corvette shift kit in the transmission. When im driving the car, shifting from 1st to 2nd gear is fine. When i shift to 3rd and 4th gear sometimes it works and...

Why is there a Corvette shift kit, and not a Firechicken shift kit? Check your tv cable adjustment and of course your fluid level. Shift improvement kits are built for the vehicle for which they are intended, and you don't gain by putting a kit in a vehicle you want, in the vehicle you have. It should not , however, effect downshift that much. Find a reputable tranny shop in your area, and they should be able to help.
