The 1989 Pontiac trans am is a classic automobile. Yes, you can flat tow a 1989 Pontiac Trans Am.

If a signal light stays on, but does not flash on a 1989 Pontiac, there could be a light burned out in the turn signals on the exterior of the vehicle. It is also possible that the flasher unit has gone bad. The flasher unit is under the dash on the driver's side.
as long as it's the same size engine (Probably 3.1), the intake style might be different, so you may have to transfer your intake to the new motor. if the two intakes are the same, the motor will bolt right in.
You do not reset the check engine light on that year of sunbird, it will go off automatically whenever you fix whatever problem the computer is reading. Most likely it is one of your sensors that is malfunctioning. Check your Air Intake Temp Sensor (AIT) and your Oxygen Sensor (O2) as they are the most likely culprits.
