Hello
I used to own a 1988 Pontiac trans am w performance suspension that I had dropped a new crate in and had the trans rebuilt LOVED it! Untill it eventually left my life. Now I'm back # in a 1998 firebird v6 base and automatic transmission. And I am having SO MANY different issues I could use A Guide Someone who could hear or know all about My car and tell me where to begin or how to find or fix certain things. I am a lady and I am not a mechanic altho I have many tools and some knowledge of how to fix some things...but soon as I bought the car after driving it near a week I then realized The struts and coil springs Were Totally Shot!! Then I noticed no Air conditioner it leaks as fast as I can fill it. 😞 and also I Seriously Became Scared!! It Wondered All over as far as steering#
So I took it to a local shop and just as I Feared! Coil springs and struts and control arms Not just the ball joint ... Replacing the joint I was Told in this particular case would Not Help me<img src="https://www.camarozone.com/forum/images/smilies/frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" class="inlineimg" />. I couldn't afford all this... So I chose to do struts and shocks and the front coil springs. I have not replaced the rest yet &#x1f61e;
Now I got all the control arms upper and lower for both front sides and had a "sure friend"- think they Could change them for me ... Well we got only 1 lower control arm changed and it WAS a monster of a pain!! &#x1f61e; also let me add the bolt was almost rubbed into!! Now I've always noticed when ever sitting in a drive threw w my foot on brake and motor running... A 3 knock noise from someplace towards the rear of the vehicle.... Ok I could Not figure this out!!! Now I realize upon the MUST FLOOD hold down semi down...GAS peddle to accept to start! And CLEARLY NOW I can Not mistaken Tell the 3 knock noise conning from the gas tank area.
Ugh
I Need So much Help... Please and have a blessed day @~}~~~~~~

Thank you.&#x1f498;
