Why would a 1987 Pontiac Sunbird not start only on days when there is heavy rain?
Get a can of WD40 and spray the inside and outside of the dist cap and all of the plug wiring and coil.
Its probably also making a knocking noise on speed bumps or potholes and the alignment is probably pretty bad as well.The struts need to be replaced.Also an alignment would go hand in hand with this.I had my 91 Sunbird 2 door sedan done recently at Les Schwab for 400 and it drives like a sports car is supposed to now.
I had a 1988 Pontiac Sunbird GT with the 2.0L Turbocharged engine. I replaced the alternator every 26K mi. I believe this was due to the underhood temperatures caused by the turbo. I had the car for 123K mi. before I sold it. Still in great shape. Could be due to a short in the electrical system or a bad ground.

If a 1992 Pontiac Sunbird signals do not work can you hook them up to a toggle switch and which wires would you use?
More than likely a blown head gasket. Depends on the situation and how quickly it over heats. Check to make sure your radiator fan is coming on. Could be a bad coolant sensor, fan relay, bad water pump, stuck thermostat....etc. You have to start diagnosing things and ruling them out. It could be many things.
The best place to start gaining information on starting a dealership would be either on the Pontiac website or at a Pontiac dealership. Feel free to ask those who have already done what you are trying to do for advice. Speak to the current owner and find out how they started out and what tips they have for you.
Sorry, but I'm looking for my rattle as well. I have a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am. Someone told me it was the struts. Well, new struts, same rattle. My rattle is right in the passenger side rear seat area. Any bump, no matter how small and I hear it. Had the seats out. All I can say is it's louder with the rear seats folded down. I've checked everything obvious.
JC Whitney would probably be the first place I tried. Rock Auto would be second. Parts Hotlines would be third. Then I'd try Ebay Motors. Gonna be a little difficult to find a new one, and a new OEM one will be a needle in a haystack.. the H platform was produced from 1971 to 1980, so the fuel tank should be the same as the Chevy Vega, Oldsmobile Starfire, Buick Skyhawk, Pontiac Sunbird, and…
