Doing research guys for you that visted my remanufactured parts post in the Mall section.

Where are the most common leaks in fieros? I am looking into selling o-rings for the fuel injectors (dealership cost like 4.20 a piece..too much) o-rings for the distributor, light gaskets/seals? Any other type of seals that are commonly replaced or goes bad?


Another Note: Has someone out on the internet put up diagrams and Schematics of the motor and the rest of the car? Like this:

I personnaly wouldn't bother with the fuel injector or distributor O-rings since Fel-pro sells them cheap.

Bigggest cause of leaks on a 4-cyl is not knowing the right way to use silicone rtv.

GM charges $14 for the oil filter gasket on 88 dukes, i think.

Between that, a valve cover gasket, a heater core, and a water pump, I dont have any leaks.

My biggest leak was the dist O ring. After shut down a 4 inch dia puddle would show up. Replace o ring - no more leak.

Best fix yet.

what about tail light seals for when you put on new lenses? Or do you use silicon for that?
