  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

    • Sorry for your trouble Lynn, but Frosty is right we will do all we can to help, no judgments here!  The top radiator hose is most likely either the radiator cap or the run/return line from the overflow reservoir to the radiator, but the cap would be my bet. He should not have left the thermostat out, you need to get a new one back in as soon as possible in this cold weather. Not good for the motor and you will not have very good heat. The ticking or tapping is very possibly the idler pulley bearing based on what else has been done.  And the miss fire of #3 may be a bad spark plug wire or plug, but since they were replaced my bet would be the coil pack.
    • Gotta' love it when guys say things like "Ultimate Smokey and the Bandit Tribute". Nothing says Smokey and the Bandit to me like a Trans Am with a small block Chevy 350 in it and 33" tires on snowflake rims!  Now where did Fred go???? But hey it's ready for Duluth winter driving - I guess.... https://losangeles.craigslist.org/lac/cto/d/duluth-the-ultimate-smokey-and-the/6784312184.html
    • Am assuming the car is equipped with the Super Hydra-Matic transmission..?? Also is the car column shift or floor shift...?? On column shift cars the neutralizer switch is non adjustable.... But it is adjustable on floor shift cars..If has floor shift it's very possible that it has slipped out of ajustment... If the car is equipped with the Roto Hydramatic (AKA Slim jim) the procedure is the same...
    • I agree with Frosty and assume your speaking of the starter and not the alternator overheating.  Neutral safety switch.
    • Sweet GTO.  Welcome to the site.   Mich guy here too. Will 2nd the question of where is that mural ?? Hope we can meet up at one of the Pontiac events.
