How To Unsieze An Engine
This is the diesel I got for the Astro van, basically free, with the 700R4
transmission. Which ironically turned out to be a great transmission, the
only one of three that has a good fourth gear, but I rebuilt it anyway.
Who knew a 30 year old automatic could still be sweet inside.
I have unsiezed this diesel engine like this three times now. It
obviously has some internal problems. So its on the list to get a tear
down and rebuild, right after the Ranger is back together. It takes about
an hour or more to get this motor turning over 360 deg. Then it won't
quite fire, but makes little smoke puffs.
The starter in the 6.2 diesel has some serious torque, sucks the battery
voltage down and makes a tremendous amount of heat. It still takes an hour
of cranking an eighth of an inch at a time.
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.
