The key lock and the electric motor are two separate items they are conected by a lever. It sounds like the lever is binding
sounds like a bad key tumbler
its bolted to the motor
Does your Firebird have a Chevy or Pontiac motor in it?If it is a Pontiac motor, you will need an adapter from Summit or Jeg's.Also, it could be a different output shaft length and spline count.
can you clean a egr valve on a 1995 pontiac firebird with a 3.,4 litre motor
The 1986 Firebird came with either a 2.8L V6 or a 5.0L V8
The 1986 Pontiac Firebird fan relay switch can be found on the back of the fan motor. The relay switch is connected to the fan motor by two retaining screws.
Between 165 and 225 depending on exactly which model. http://www.thirdgen.org/1987-pontiac-firebird
you can put a blower on nearly any motor
It is behind the Harmonic balancer at the bottom pulley on your motor.

No you do not , But it's one hell of a job to get off.
If it is a Pontiac 350, any hei distributor out of any size Pontiac motor up to 1979 will work.
I have a 96 Chevy Blazer S-10 and the latch to open the window in the back hatch will not work. How do I replace the motor?? or whatever to repair?
The hatch motor is actually controlled by a small switch that in part of the lock. The contacts you refer to are ,pst pften used for the high mounted stop light. The problem is most likely that the plastic gearing on the bottom of the pull down motor is broken. Repair kits and rebuilt motors are both available online or through ebay.
This site has a step by step guide for an older Firebird, but it is identical to what you need for a 2001. http://shbox.com/page/windowmotor.html
V6's ranged anywhere from 200-212hp
left hand side of motor on side of oil pan
Follow the top radiator hose, to where it intersects with the motor. This would be the thermostat housing. Remove this, and the thermostat will be exposed.
try all American classics in Vancouver, Washington they had all the parts i needed for my firebird so im sure they will have that there. here is the website http://www.allamericanclassics.com/
Some Pontiacs came from the factory with Chevy engines. If this is the case on your 79 firebird, then the transmission will bolt up to a 350 Chevy. If the car came with a Pontiac engine, then the bolt pattern is different and would not bolt up.
