1986 Fiero 2m6 having big problems
My car takes a minute to start at times, has a horrible miss, once in a
while a backfire, shifts late at times and it just don't feel right. As of
4/15/2011 I figured the car has jumped time 180 degrees and the rod bearing
was bad, I threw a rod a couple hours after getting it back.

How to Remove a 2.8 V6 Engine from a Pontiac FIero step-by-step (HD)
This is a video giving a visual step-by-step process on how to remove the
2.8 liter V6 engine from a Pontiac Fiero using basic tools. The only tools
that you may need to rent, borrow or buy is an engine hoist and some 4
wheel moving dolly's. I've attempted to make this video as visual as
possible so that anyone could see how to remove the engine using basic
This video can also be a useful guide when reinstalling the engine as is
shows how things were disconnected. Most of the disassembly steps can be
done in any order with the exception of a few parts.
Please comment and share with other Fiero enthusiasts.
If I do not know how to do something, I usually turn to YouTube FIRST to
see if there is a video on it. Since I use YouTube to teach me things I
figured I'd pay it forward and post videos of what I know.
1988 Pontiac Fiero GT
a walk around video of my 88' fiero gt. had it for a few months and finally
got it all straighted out. it had the leather seat option which i here is
rare on the 88 gt, 83,000 miles, and running like a champ now. i had to
replace the oil pan, as well as the IAC, MAP, EGR valve, and the coolant
temp sensor. it was idling high because the coolant temp sensor went bad
and was causing it to run very ritch....10 mpg to rich! any who, there it
is and enjoy if your a fan.

87 Fiero GT lz8 3900 fuel economy run #1
This is an example of what economy the Fiero get after swaping to a 3900
out of a 07 impala cop car w/ 4t65e. The test was done on a part of 440
around Raleigh NC. I feel safe saying 30+ mpg hwy, and 20+ in town. Note:
the avg economy is down due to a lot of in town driving.
My '84 Fiero (Bought It New, Had It Ever Since)
Its on-again, off-again development took 6 years before it finally saw the
light of day. Like almost every inexpensive sports car through history, it
used numerous components from high-volume production cars to keep costs
Pontiac's crack marketing department predicted total sales of 60,000 that
first year. Imagine their surprise when 30,000 people placed orders for the
car sight unseen. By the time of its official introduction in September of
1983, there was a six-month waiting list. By model-year's end, 136,840
Fieros had flowed out the doors of its Pontiac, MI assembly plant, a record
for any mid-engined car.
It was chosen as the Pace Car for the Indianapolis 500 that year, powered
by a Pontiac 2.7L Super Duty 4 making 232 h.p. The 2000 Pace Car replicas
sold to the public had the standard 92 h.p. Iron Duke 4.
Its Enduraflex body panels, bolted to a driveable space frame, never dented
and never rusted. The lower door and fender panels would even bounce back
from minor impacts. What GM learned about these body panels with the Fiero
was applied to its first-generation minivans and its Saturn line of small
This one was my first, and only new car. 29 years (as of April 9, 2013),
165,000 miles, (27,000 miles on this engine), two owners (for the first
four years, the bank owned it. LOL). I ordered it in October 1983 from
Townsend Pontiac in Merrillville, IN; it finally came in April 1984.
Mine is a Sport Coupe (the middle model), red with a gray interior and
alloy wheels, and looks exactly like the Fieros Pontiac used in their print
and TV advertising in '84. For this model year only, the engine cover
grille was cast magnesium. The rear trunk held 5 upright sacks of
groceries, the front compartment two more. (You listening, Solstice?)
It went 50,000 miles the first 3 years, thanks to a long daily commute; it
took eight years to go the next 50,000. It took another 14 years after that
to get to 140,000+ miles. Not that it had an easy life, being a daily
driver in Chicago winters, where they throw salt on the street if a snow
cloud passes overhead (notice I didn't say it actually had to snow.)
It's a 30-footer; from that distance, it could pass for new. As you get
closer, you notice the stone chips, the clearcoat peeling off the wheels,
the ripped driver's seat, and the swirl marks in the paint. But then, if
any of you look like you did 26 years ago, raise your hands. Those of you
who weren't even born 26 years ago can recuse yourselves.
It's on its second hood medallion; the first and only time I left the car
parked outside my house overnight in 1987, someone tried to pry the first
one off, and nearly succeeded. This is its second clutch and its second set
of headlight motors, and its third set of tires (Eagle GT2's -- Goodyear no
longer makes 215/60R14 tires, so my next set will have to be BF Goodrich).
The old Iron Duke had to be replaced at 138,500 miles; with the new Duke,
rebuilt by ATK, it's even faster
than it was when new. The 4-speed has gone all the way
Other than that, it's original and bone stock, an increasing rare commodity
in the Fiero world of turbo-V6 and
small-block V8 engine swaps and one-off wheels, bodies and colors.
The only real problem I've had with this car is crappy repairs by
mechanics, both dealer and independent, who shouldn't have been allowed to
change a trunk light by themselves.
The Recall was the worst. The mechanics at my friendly local Pontiac dealer
would loosen parts to get to other parts and forget to tighten them back,
causing a noticeable rattle (hardly the car's fault) and refused to take
responsibility for their shoddy work; I ended up tightening those parts
After 16 years of these kinds of repairs, through my local Fiero club,
Northern Illinois Fiero Enthusiasts, I finally found a dealer mechanic,
Dave Armstrong, who knew what the hell he was doing; he's the reason my car
is still on the road. I found out from him that even when Fieros were still
being made, it was OPTIONAL for Pontiac mechanics to be trained to work on
them. If you brought your Fiero in for service, it was strictly luck
whether you got a qualified technician (like Dave)or a clueless hack.
A possible consequence of getting a dealer hack, going to an independent
mechanic or doing a backyard DIY repair? If the Fiero's cooling system was
not flushed and refilled according to a specific procedure (clearly
outlined in the owner's manual and, I would imagine, the dealer shop
manual), the car ended up with HALF the antifreeze/coolant it was designed
to hold. And there were engine fires? Gee, I wonder why.
Dave was the go-to Fiero guru at Jacobs Twin Pontiac in Chicago; now he's
got his own garage near Harlem and Irving Park, doing a land-office
business. It couldn't happen to a more deserving guy. He'll get your Fiero
(or any other GM car) running right.
