Hey there:

There are usually two different mechanical problems that cause the symptoms you're describing with your Pontiac Firebird. The first and most common is a problem with the ignition coil, (especially in mid-90's GM V-6 engines) or due to problems with fuel injectors that are dirty or corroded with excess carbon buildup from the EGR system.

If the Check Engine Light has illuminated on the dashboard, a good bet would be to contact one of our local ASE certified mechanics who can download any error codes stored in the computer which will give them a good indication as to what's causing your engine misfire.
