The Pontiac Fiero is a mid-engined sports car that was built by the Pontiac division of General Motors from 1984 to 1988. The Fiero—meaning "proud" in Italian and "wild", "fierce", or "ferocious" in Spanish—was designed by George Milidrag and Hulki Aldikacti as a Pontiac sports car. The Fiero was the first two-seater Pontiac since the 1926 to 1938 coupes, and also the first and only mass-produced mid-engine sports car by a U.S. manufacturer. Many technologies incorporated in the Fiero design such as plastic body panels were radical for its time. Alternative names considered for the car were Sprint, P3000, Pegasus, Fiamma, Sunfire, and Firebird XP. The Fiero 2M4 (two-seat, Mid-engine, four-cylinder) was on Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best list for 1984. The 1984 Fiero was the Official Pace Car of the Indianapolis 500 for 1984, beating out the new 1984 Chevrolet Corvette for the honor.
370,168 Fieros were produced over the relatively short production run of five years; by comparison, 163,000 Toyota MR2s were sold in its first five years. At the time, its reputation suffered from criticisms over performance, reliability and safety issues. Today, however, compared to less adventurous attempts at two-seaters such as the Ford EXP, the unique style of the Fiero compared to other American cars has left it a cult following as a collectible car. It remains a popular chassis for rebodies and electric conversions
Already selling the Corvette, General Motors management and accountants were opposed to investing in a second two-seater sports car. But in 1979, during the oil crisis, management saw a market opportunity for a fuel-efficient sporty commuter car, and design work on the Fiero commenced. To this end, it was fitted with a fuel efficient version of GM's 2.5 L four-cylinder "Iron Duke" engine capable of 27 mpg-US (8.7 L/100 km; 32 mpg-imp) in the city and 40 mpg-US (5.9 L/100 km; 48 mpg-imp) on the highway with the economy-ratio transmission option. These figures are U.S. Environmental Protection Agency test-circuit results, published by Pontiac, and confirmed from multiple sources. It was impressive mileage for a 2.5 L engine of the period, and still good by today's standards, but the three-speed automatic reduced highway mileage to only 32 mpg-US (7.4 L/100 km; 38 mpg-imp). With respect to fuel economy, the Fiero would appeal to a market niche for which the Corvette with its V8 engine was unsuitable.
1987 saw changes to the front and rear fascias on the "base coupe" with the SE and GT models keeping the same "Aero" nose. The new non-aero noses lost the black bumper pads of the earlier models and had a smoother look. The four-cylinder engine's power rating increased to 98 hp (73 kW) with some major modifications which included a roller cam, redesigned intake manifold, distributorless ignition system (DIS), open combustion chamber cylinder head and upgraded throttle-body fuel injection system. This was the last year for the spin-on oil filter on the four-cylinder. The car was offered in Bright Metallic Blue and replacing the ribbed black molding was the round style found on the GT models. As a side note, the SE models retained the ribbed molding, and added the aero nose found on the GT. Redesigned headlight motors appeared in 1987. Additionally, starting with the 1987 model Pontiac dealerships offered an upgrade in the form of an "option" that changed the original body to a Ferrari-type body, called the Fiero Mera. While technically a "kit", the change in body style was offered only on new Fieros and is considered a class of car in its own right. There was a limited production of Fiero Meras made however, as the company that produced them, Corporate Concepts, was sued by Ferrari and ordered to stop.

Already selling the Corvette, General Motors management and accountants
were opposed to investing in a second two-seater sports car. But in 1979,
during the oil crisis, management saw a market opportunity for a
fuel-efficient sporty commuter car, and design work on the Fiero commenced.
To this end, it was fitted with a fuel efficient version of GM's 2.5 L
four-cylinder "Iron Duke" engine capable of 27 mpg-US (8.7 L/100 km; 32
mpg-imp) in the city and 40 mpg-US (5.9 L/100 km; 48 mpg-imp) on the
highway with the economy-ratio transmission option. These figures are U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency test-circuit results, published by Pontiac,
and confirmed from multiple sources. It was impressive mileage for a
2.5-liter engine of the period, and still good by today's standards, but
the three-speed automatic reduced highway mileage to only 32 mpg-US (7.4
L/100 km; 38 mpg-imp). With respect to fuel economy, the Fiero would appeal
to a market niche for which the Corvette with its V8 engine was unsuitable.
A mid-engine layout was chosen as a way to reduce both aerodynamic drag and
vehicle weight to improve fuel efficiency, and also for its handling,
traction, and braking benefits. The sports car potential of the mid-engine
layout was not fully realized when the Fiero debuted. In line with its
market position, the tires, brakes, and some suspension components were
carried over from other GM economy cars (like the Chevrolet Citation and
Chevrolet Chevette) so the Fiero could be priced appropriately. As a
result, the handling and cornering abilities of the initial Fiero were
merely on par with other contemporary sporty coupes (Road & Track 1985).
The public had high expectations for the Fiero with its mid-engine layout
and futuristic styling, which resembles more exotic mid-engine sports cars
costing much more. While initially garnering good reviews for its handling
(Motor Trend 1984), the Fiero soon received disappointing reviews, as the
automotive critics expected higher performance from a mid-engine
two-seater. Despite the critical press, the Fiero sold extremely well and
Pontiac operated three shifts at the factory during 1984, and could not
keep up with initial demand.
The sharing of suspension components with other GM cars meant the rear
suspension and powertrain was almost identical to that of the Chevrolet
Citation and Pontiac Phoenix; the Fiero even included rear tie rod ends
attached to a "steering knuckle", although these were hard-mounted to the
engine cradle and only used for maintaining the rear tire alignment. The
front suspension was derived from the Chevrolet Chevette, and Chevette
enthusiasts found that they could upgrade their undersized front brakes and
rotors using Fiero parts.
By 1985, the oil crisis was a thing of the past and demand developed for a
Fiero having more engine power and better sports car performance. Pontiac
responded by introducing the GT model which included upgraded suspension
tuning, wider tires, and a V6 engine having 43 horsepower (32 kW) more than
the base four-cylinder. In 1986, the GT model was restyled to look even
88 Fiero GT AT Test Drive to 100 MPH
This is a slow run up to 100 mph in an 88 stock 2.8 liter V6 Fiero GT to
test its automatic transmission and stability after recent repair and brake
mods.The car shifts very quickly for an AT even though I did not push it
very hard with this test drive just in case anything decided to let loose.
This was not an acceleration test or max speed test... Stock Fiero's
are just not that fast to get all excited about but still a lot of fun to
drive if they can be made reliable.

The Dodge Ramcharger is a large sport utility vehicle built by Dodge from
1974 to 1993 (and 1999 to 2001 in Mexico), and based on a
shortened-wheelbase version of the Dodge D Series/Ram pickup truck chassis.
A Plymouth version, named the Trailduster and offered from 1974 to 1981,
was Plymouth's only SUV.
The Ramcharger was primarily produced as a full-time four wheel drive
vehicle, although a two wheel drive version was available starting in 1975.
During development, it was known as the "Rhino". 1974 through 1980
models have a removable hard top, although dealer-installed soft tops were
available. The first year model differs from the others in that its door
pillars are attached to a removable roof.
Like many vehicles, the Ramcharger was used in rallying, although its use
was very limited. It did have some success, as demonstrated by achieving
first place at Sno*Drift in 1975. In 1978 and 1979 the 360 CID's horsepower was bumped up to
(145 kW). 1978 was the last year for the 440 CID, which by then only put
out 215 horsepower
The vehicle was usually powered by a Chrysler LA engine, the most common
being the 318 cu in (5.2 L) V8. Optional was the 360 cu in (5.9 L) V8 and
even big-block B series 400 cu in (6.6 L) V8 and RB 440 cu in (7.2 L) V8
were offered in the early years. Initially a normally aspirated carburetor,
in 1988 the 318 gained throttle-body fuel injection with the 360 following
in 1989. Power output for the TBI 318 was 230 horsepower (170 kW) and 280
lb (130 kg)-ft of torque. The TBI 360 had 240 hp (180 kW) and 283 to 295
lb·ft (400 N·m). In 1992 the multiport fuel injected Magnum 318 was the
standard engine while the LA 360 with TBI was still offered. In 1993 the
Magnum 360 replaced the LA engine version.
Many manual transmissions were offered throughout the years, starting with
the A-230 three-speed and ending with the A-535 five-speed in 1992. The
NP435 "granny gear" 4 speed was the most common in 4WD models, as well as
the close ratio version, the NP445. In 1988 the clutch was converted from a
mechanical linkage to a hydraulic system. Automatic transmission models had
the Chrysler Loadflite TF-727A or B until, in 1991, it was replaced with
the A-500/A-518 four-speed.
Axles were Dana 44 front and 9¼" rear. Full time 4WD models (1973--1979)
were equipped with the full time version of the Dana 44 that had no
provision for locking hubs and had a front wheel bearing design with a
somewhat dubious reputation. In 1980 when the part time 4WD system was
introduced, the front Dana 44 was equipped with a more conventional front
wheel bearing design and automatic locking hubs. Late in the 1984 model
year the Dana 44 was switched to a CAD (Center Axle Disconnect) version.
The CAD Dana 44 was vacuum actuated by a switch on the transfer case and
powered by engine vacuum. The CAD Dana 44 was carried on until the end of
Ramcharger production in 1993. Users often ran into problems with the CAD
system. The vacuum switch on the transfer case would occasionally fail and
either leave the CAD engaged or not engage the CAD at all. Limited slip
differentials were available for the 9¼" rear axle. It should also be
noted that the full time 4WD versions used a 5 on 4½" wheel bolt circle
and the part time models used a 5 on 5½" bolt circle

Oil Change in a Pontiac Fiero
The Pontiac Fiero is just like any other sports car (or any other car) when
it comes to oil changes. Warm up the car, lift up the end where the engine
is, take out the oil pan drain plug, let the oil drain out, put the drain
plug back in, change the oil filter, refill with fresh oil.
I've been doing it myself ever since the car was new. The hardest part of
the whole procedure, over the last nearly 30 years, was filming the whole
thing for this video. If you're thinking of changing your Fiero oil
yourself, hope it helps.
Me and my dad see my dad's old car for the first time in 20 years.
He sold the car over 20+ years ago when he was an alcoholic. Said he
probably would have died in it. This is the first time he saw it since he
sold it over 20+ years ago. The car does look in relative good shape, we
have no idea what has been done with the car over the past 20 years. It
obviously wasn't sitting there for 20 years and nobody claims it to be. Pay
attention, people. 1964 Buick Rivera. 425 Wildcat V8 w/ 427 horsepower.
