    Hello, Everyone...I need help. I was recently given my Aunt's 1997 Camaro (V6, T-Tops) in excellent condition (currently 128,000 miles) this past May. Around December my check engine light came on, so I took it to the local dealership and they explained there was 4 things wrong with it: 1. 02...
  5. 4th Gen (1993-97) Camaro and Firebird Tech
    OK so as far as I've been told the engine comes out of the bottom of the car right? If so is there any trick to removing it without taking anything off the car (except for the engine) without a car lift? The problem put more accurately is getting it in. If it makes a difference it is the 3.4L...

    I have a 1999 Firebird coupe with the 3800 series 2 v6 with 65,000 miles on it. Coming back from a long drive, I saw that the water temperature was getting hot and that I had a leak in the system somewhere. I bought water to feed the radiator and figured I could make it back home just fine as...

    Alright so here's the current situation... About a week ago I brought my bird into my shop, jacked her up on jackstands and noticed something dripping underneath. Not much later I found it to be coolant due to the smell and obvious color. I had never seen it before nor had I had any puddles...

    I have looked all over the place to find some after market pieces to make my engine bay look better. It just seems that there is too much plastic and what not hiding the engine. It also seems like everything in the engine bay is black so its not the fun to look at (black hoses, plastic...

    Hey everyone, My father and I are having some problems with our firebird formula. It's a 1994 and has the original lt1 350 in it. Just last year we sent the engine out to a very reputable performance shop to have it rebuilt. Basically what the guy did was port and polish the heads, dip the...

    UPDATE: Stripped the spraypaint from the FRCs using a plastic safe degreaser, shined up, installed, and took pics. Also painted and installed a new upper bumper cover support. Thoughts? Should I paint them a different color? I'm pretty happy with leaving it as is. The paint stripper removed the...

    Hi-- I have a 1990 Firebird Formula which I think might have a seized engine. I rescued him from a man who's brother didn't take very good care of him. He's in bad shape - but his engine was always good, so I do not know why it would have stopped working. About 2 months ago, I discovered he...

    Hey guys, I had noticed a small leak coming from under my water pump for some time and the other day I noticed my water level in the radiator was pretty low. I decided to replace the water pump thinking the gasket was bad and as I was scraping the old gasket off, I reached in the left port only...
