1990 Pontiac Firebird Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Pontiac's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Pontiac tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Firebird transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Pontiac Firebird transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Pontiac, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
