Fiero electric motor transaxle first test
This is a major milestone in my 1986 Pontiac Fiero electric car conversion
project. After numerous delays getting the correct adapting hardware for
the new motor to the old transaxle, we finally mounted the clutch and motor
assembly onto the transaxle and frame of the car. With everything in place,
I applied a regular 12 car battery to the motor and amazingly, it ran
without a hitch! See my website (www.roboticmayhem.com) for more
information on this project.
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.
Performance Clutch - Explained
What is a performance clutch? Clutch kit? How does a performance clutch
work? A performance clutch basically involves three changes over
traditional organic clutches. This video features a Yonaka performance
clutch kit. A performance clutch has a higher clamping force on the
pressure plate (via the diaphragm spring). Performance clutches use
different materials which can absorb less heat and that don't lose
performance at higher temperatures. Finally, performance clutches use a
"puck" design, 3 puck, 4 puck, 6 puck, which increase the pressure on the
friction material, to prevent slip.

Northstar Fiero with a cooked clutch
Backing my 86 Fiero GT with 2003 Cadillac Northstar Engine into the garage.
Someone stole it and cooked the clutch, so this was the last time it ran
before getting torn apart.
Pontiac Fiero NHTSA Frontal Crash Test WITHOUT Seatbelts
This is another crash test video for the Pontiac Fiero. In this test, the
occupants are NOT wearing seatbelts. This goes to show how deadly even the
safest cars can be when the occupants are not wearing seatbelts.
This was tested at 29.7 MPH into a solid Barrier. The driver would have a
fair chance of surviving, but would have broken ribs and sternum. The
passenger would have a broken neck from its head going through the
The Fiero received a 5 star crash rating for both driver and passenger. A
5-star rating means a 10% or lower chance of serious injury. So 5-star
means the same now as it meant 25 years ago.
Head Injury Criterion: 356.5/308.6
Chest Deceleration (G): 30.9/29.9
Femur Load 840/800 800/740
Head Injury Criterion: 870.5/552
Chest Deceleration (G): 62.6/90.6
Femur Load 1113/1170 1056/1067
So as you can see, by not wearing your seatbelt, the crash test rating of
this car goes from 5 stars to only 2 stars. Thats going from less than 10%
of serious injury to 36-40% chance of serious injury!!!!!
Before you comment, realize this test is WITHOUT SEATBELTS.
Even a safe car like the Fiero cannot protect you if you dont WEAR YOUR
