Because the efficiency of the fan and the water pump degrades at low RPM.
Horns are typically at the front of the engine capartment, left or right of the radiator, there are twop (a high and a low pitch) for the 2001 Firebird, not sure if they are in the same location
No, it wouldn't affect the idle unless you were somehow overheating the engine.
Idling too low or a bad lock-up torque converter solenoid.
Chances are, particularly if this is an automatic transmission, you are low on tranny fluid. To check this, the engine needs to be at normal operating temperature and idling. Checking tranny fluid when the engine is cold and not idling will give a false reading, indicating that it is full ...
Perhaps the A/C is drawing too much power from the engine, could be the engine is idling too low.
The #1 cause of cold air from the heater when the car is stopped, or the engine is idling, low engine coolant levels.
The low side ac port on a 1997 Pontiac Firebird should be located on a hose on the passenger side. The hose is close to the radiator.
The check engine light should be on and give you a code. If not and your vehicle is idling low or rough you should take it off and clean it out before you spend money on it. A good cleaning will usually fix that problem.
A low oil pressure reading when idling for a 1986 Fiero is normal. As long as the oil pressure goes back to normal when the car is being driven, there should be no problem. If it is not, then the oil pressure sensor or the oil sending unit should be looked at.
Sonds like the idling speed is too low - it can be adjusted (Usually with just a screw driver) if you know the right screw to turn to give the engine higher idling revs.
If you have average mileage on it, you should go get it checked. That is too low for an idle. The vibration is probly from the low idle.
The engine may be idling to high. Also check the transmission fluid level, it may be low.
The engine hourmeter on the Silverado/Sierra pickups will give the total run time of the engine including idling time. There is no direct correlation to the milage showing on the odometer. The comparisons you can make is if the hours are extremely high and the milage is low then you can assume that the engine has been idling alot. Alternately, if the hours are low and the milage is high then you can assume that the vehicle has a lot of highway miles on it.
4 minutes before starting engine, and anytime your idling or driving at low speeds. It also says you should not run blower during refueling, but for 4 minutes after your done "before starting engine". This prevents blower from drawing gas fumes into the engine compartment.
There are several things that could cause this. The first thing to investigate, though, is the idle speed your engine is set at. As with any engine, if the idle is set too low, the engine will not continue running.
Check your idling speed it might be too low to support the AC motor, so when you turn on the AC the engine dies, try increasing the idling speed a bit at a time.
Low voltage (high vacuum) at mass air flow sensor (or MAP sensor).
Locate the sound, if it is high up on the engine it will most likely be the lifters, pretty common with the 4.0, you can quiet them down by using oil additives, but if it is low it may be a wrist pin knock, this will also happen and get louder when driving, and should be dealt with immediately.
sitting and idling ?possible bad engine or trans mounthave them inspected
If the engine is revving high and low while it is idling, then that can be the idle air valve (what was told to me by a professional). I don't know if it can fix itself because I had mine hibernating for about a year and it stopped.
It has to be about 2 qts. low for the light to come on.
There could be any number of reasons but it could be the idle is set too low. The idle is the rpms that your engine runs at just sitting there without you stepping on the gas. It should be somewhere between 800 and 1000 rpms.
A 2005 firebird is usually low cost in this day and age due to the older model and can be found in used car dealers or online via bluebook. Cost should be under $10,000.
Not the correct oil for engine, Engine idling rpm to low, Faulty oil pressure sending unit, High mileage on engine, Lack of oil changes and maintenance on engine,
