check if your battery is low than usual ..might be alternator problem
You might be able to get one through a dealership, but I'll bet they're danged expensive. I'd check with local junkyards.
Pontiac didn't make the Sunfire until '95. So, either you have the year of your car wrong, or it might be a Sunbird. If you can clarify this for us, we can help you.
You might have bad piston rings, main cause of that because once you wear your rings out your gas is then able to seep past your piston rings into your oil and into your pan.
I hang out in a couple of Sunfire groups and have never heard of a V6 swap. I guess it might be "possible", but it may or may not be worth what it takes to get it done. I've wished for a long time, that Pontiac had offered a 6 cylinder engine for Sunfires.
check your coil it could be warming up and expanding inside might be internal crack
Most likely in the front? Might be covered by a plastic cover so you'll have to take that off to get at it.
It might be the high/low beam switch. Had to replace one on my '96 when I had only low beams.
A good auto audio shop can fabricate one for you. Or, you might try Crutchfield.com
Check under the hood for an obvious fuel leak. You might an injector leaking.
Did the old radio have any sound? Do you get a strange code on the radio display indicating that you are locked out? You might have to pull the radio back out and make sure that the speaker connection plug is plugged in securely.
Hi, If you are talking about the anti theft device that locks the radio, you might have to go to the dealership to have it unlocked. That's what I did when the radio on my 2000 Sunfire stopped working after the alternator was replaced. It cost me $20.
check the reference book or computer at your local parts store. You might find it listed on the parts houses' websites.
If you have one, it's back near the firewall, just down from the brake master cylinder. You might not have one though. Pontiac did away with them early in the game. Why, I don't know. Seems kind of dumb to me ~
same problemit maybe broken and cracked wires which is located in the headlamp wire harness. the harness may need to be replaced. Pink wire in the harness where it passes between the frame and windshield washer bottle is corroded.....easy fix.
Well, if you haven't already tried the major parts houses, that's a good place to begin your search. If you have no luck there, a junkyard is a good prospect too. Remember that the Sunfire is very similar to the Cavalier. Parts might interchange. You might mention this to the folks at the parts houses.
You might take a look on Ebay Motors. There are usually some darned nice Sunfires (and other cars) listed for sale. FriPilot
There might still be a sticker on the driver's side door pillar telling you what the size is. If not, a quick call to a tire shop should give you the answer.
In addition to moving the tensioner pulley, you might have to loosen the alternator to gain a little more slack space.
Bucket seats out of a pontiac sunfire from the 90's will fit in a 60's chevelle. You might need to put risers on the mounting brackets.
The lights on the odometer on a 1999 Chevy Blazer might not work because of a burned out fuse. They might also not work if the lights are burned out.
It might cause the "check engine" light to come on.
You need the fuse box.
I haven't towed with a Sunfire, but would suspect that it might slow going. I'd keep an eye on the temp. gauge. According to Edmunds, the towing capacity of an 05 Sunfire is 1000 lbs. I'd certainly try to stay well under that ceiling. FriPilot
you're wiring might not be grounded right, then you might have a short in the wires
