Wiring loosened on front headlights, had to pull over at night, and plug in agai. Checked fuses to make sure they were the actual ones. Also, the bulbs that worked the blinkers failed, and the back lights went in/out due to a short.

problem #1

(reported on)

Firebird

  • miles
Excessive oil consumption - approximately 1quart of oil is consumed every 1000 miles. Electrical - during acceleration the left front headlight shorts out. This has escalated to not turning on after the car is warm and driven, stopped and turned off, then turned on again. Currently, not turning on at all. If I tap on the light, it flickers.
