Questions About 1996 Pontiac Firebird’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Pontiac's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
