Oil type for my 2002 firebird

You can use 5w30 - 5w20 - or 10w30 depending on the air temp and your mileage.
Low mileage engines can use the lower weight. Hot weather or high mileage engines can use the higher weight.

Pull the valve cover and see if the timing chain is broken. Pretty common with engines that have higher miles or less than ideal oil change intervals. If the chain is broken it bent valves. Your better off with a low mileage used engine

Is it safe to put Valvoline synthetic 5W 30 oil in a Pontiac Grand Am 4 Cyl 2003 car with other oil already in car?

It depends on if the oil already in the car is synthetic of conventional. If the oil in the car is synthetic already you will be fine adding that. If it is conventional you will want to do a complete oil change and change the filter.

Hope this helps.

I have a 1987 pointiac Fiero. It has the 2.5L 4

It gives 3 quarts just as a starting point, it says this for the 4-cyl and 6-cyl, just so you don't overfill it. The distance between the two marks/notches on the dipstick represents 1-quart. If it's exactly on the low mark, then add 3/4 of a quart and see where it ends up, should be about 3/4 of the way to the other notch. Don't add quarts at a time, overfilling your oil can be just as bad or worse than if you underfill it. You'll be breaking oil seals all over....not good! :)

have fun

My car leaks oil right above the starter it a small plug thing that goes to the motor and has some wires hooked up to it that i can disconect do uyou know what the part is called it look almost like a...

Where you're describing sounds like it's leaking from the oil pan. If the vehicle has high mileage, you will probably want to look into replacing the oil pan gasket. If this doesn't sound right, it could be something to do with the oil pump. There isn't a lot of electrical components in that area of the engine. The oil pump or oil sensing unit would be my guess.

2003 Pontiac Grand Prix SE 6 Cyl - Cooling Fan Not Operating

the fan motor could just be bad, you can test this by removing the fan and connecting a wire to each terminal and to a battery. the wires hooked up one way will spin the fan and the other way will spin the fan backwards so you cant hook it up wrong. I hope that helps you out!
