Visit the official Saabkyle04 website for exclusive content and FAQs!
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we'll take an up close and personal, in depth
look at the very cool, 1986 Pontiac Fiero GT.
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth educational videos of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be

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.
HUGE Fiero Compilation , 250+ Pics
*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.

LED Brakes and Rear Blinkers for the Pontiac Fiero

This is the second video of a 2-part series where TLG-Auto.com's Chris
Nelson shows you what you need to do in order to upgrade the rear lighting
of your Pontiac Fiero to LED. Specifically this video shows you how to
install LED light bulbs in your tail lights, and how they are better than
the stock bulbs.
The Fiero LED Tail Light kit is here for both Notchback Models:
The red 1157 brake and turn LED bulbs are here:
The white 1156 reverse LED bulbs are here:
The load equalizing resistors are here:
fiero door hinge pin and bushing 2of3
You don't HAVE to cut the pin to remove it.
You can loosen the lower hinge bolts and tilt the upper part of the door
away from the car. But then you have to realign the door. I would rather
just spend the extra couple of bucks and get a new pin.

Changing a Fiero Headlight
Coming home from my buddy's house in Grayslake Saturday night, a cop
stopped me and told me my passengers' side headlight was burned out. (High
beam, fine, low beam not working.) Fortunately, the Wal-Mart in Gurnee is
open 24 hours a day, and I was able to buy one before I drove back to
I replaced the old one Sunday afternoon. All those sounds you hear are
people leaving the 10:45am service at the church down the street and
arriving for the 12:45 service. Noisy, aren't they? :D
Changing a Fiero headlight is a little more difficult than changing the
usual sealed-beam headlight unit, since the Fiero has retractable
headlights, but only because the arm between the headlight motor and the
headlight assembly can trap your hand if you don't follow the directions in
the owner's manual. But it's no more difficult that changing one on
Firebirds and Corvettes of that era, or any other car with hidden
headlights, for that matter.
You people who have cars made since about 1986 and only have to replace a
halogen bulb can recuse yourselves. But you do have to worry about not
getting oils from your fingers on the bulb; it shortens the life of it. And
there is that little matter of water condensation inside the lens. And
yellowing and dulling that can only be gotten rid of by buffing compound
and elbow grease.
The job on the Fiero takes about 20 minutes, during which time I found that
the retaining spring that keeps the headlight unit from flopping around had
rusted and fallen off. It can wait until I have another order from the
Factoid: The first car sold in the U.S. since 1939 to have non-sealed-beam
headlights was the 1984 Lincoln Mark VII, which was all-new that year. The
law lifting the ban on non-sealed-beams was passed by Congress in 1984, but
because of engineering lead-times, they did not start appearing on other
cars sold here, (including other Lincolns), until 1986. It cost Lincoln a
pile of money, but they had two Mark VII headlight systems ready to go for
the '84 model year, depending on how Congress' vote went, simply because
they wanted the publicity value of being first out the gate.
