Pontiac Fiero GT--D&M Motorsports Walk Around Review
Pontiac Fiero GT Video Review Presented by D&M Motorsports.
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 (2-seat, Mid-engine, 4-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
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
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.

*Guys, Thanks so much for the 50,000 views! Please leave comments if you
want, I try to answer all the ones I can.
I collected all these photos for myself when I had my Fiero because each
picture inspired me in some way, never thought putting them in a slide show
would get people watching. If you know anyone with a Fiero, lead them here
so they can get some inspiration/ideas about theirs too.

Bendle & MacKenzie Pontiac Fiero Rocky Mountain Rally May 1991. Quite
possibly the most outrageous Pontiac Fiero rally car around. With Time
Bendle piloting and Art MacKenzie navigating, they were never boring. Plus
a couple of clips of rather rare Toyota Celica 4WD and a Mazda 323 AWD.
Introduction to my 1988 Pontiac Fiero GT
This is the introductory video for my 1988 Pontiac Fiero GT. I'll be
changing both rear wheel bearings and installing a Rodney Dickman steering
rack bushing and inner tie-rod end. Once mechanically all set, I'll be
painting the car, so I'll do quite a bit of sanding and I'll base
coat/clear coat back to black.
You can find out more about the car at it's website:
The quick and dirty, I purchased the car in 2002 with 49,000 miles. It now
as about 64k miles and is stored winters. It is a well optioned late 1988
year car and is very fun to drive.
