Engine Q&A 1998 Pontiac Firebird

  • Why does the check engine light in my Firebird turn on when I start my car? It’s usually normal for your check engine light to turn on upon ignition. It’s just your Firebird firing up its circuits. The dash light shouldn't stay on. If it does, you might want to bring your vehicle in for service.
  • Are Pontiac Firebird engine noises bad? Unusual noises can signal a problem with your Pontiac Firebird engine. Tapping or knocking could mean you're low on oil. Whistling sounds could mean you have an intake leak or misaligned belt. Squealing may be caused by a loose fan belt, and grinding might be a sign of brake problems rather than engine issues.
  • What could damage my Pontiac Firebird engine? Certain driving habits can damage your engine and should be avoided. These habits include 'running on fumes,' flooring the gas pedal while the car is in Park, or pushing 'the pedal to the metal' before the engine has warmed up. Protect your engine’s performance and efficiency by distancing yourself from these habits.
  • Can I use water in my Pontiac Firebird radiator? An emergency is the only time you should consider putting water in your radiator. Outside of that, it’s recommended you use a pre-mixed coolant or a 50/50 blend of water and coolant. However, if you need to continue driving your Firebird when you’re out of coolant, having water in the coolant reservoir is better than nothing.
  • Why did my Firebird engine suddenly stop? There are different reasons your Firebird vehicle engine could suddenly stop. You may be looking at a lack of fuel, faulty sensors, issues with the ignition system, engine overheating, electrical problems, or mechanical troubles.
