Hey Guys,

Long story short. I haven't driven my Fiero since August '07. I'm stuck on base in Gagetown, NB. and I am being posted to Edmonton, AB in March.

My car is in pieces, I need some help getting it together because if it isn't assembled in 3 weeks I have to scrap it.

Right now I need to know how the coolant pipe (that runs from the cap on the right of the plenum to under the driver and then up and to the rad...) secures to the engine. I also need a Vaccum line map for the SE V6.

Please Help!

There should be a vacuum line map on the underside of your decklid. Mine's a GT V6 so it may be different. If your decklid doesnt have one, post here and Ill snap a pic after The Giants have punted Tom Brady's ego. GL,

You talking about this coolant pipe. I bolts on the transmission and then up by the head. Once you lay is in place you should see where it needs to mount. This is an 85.


And maybe this will help.

I should know this: what's a plenum? Google's not helping.

Also, isn't McCool talking about the coolant tube that runs under the body, by the rockers, to the radiator? The one in the pic is only in the engine bay, right? And don't the coolant tubes only attach to the engine by means of the rubber tubes and have a couple of brackets along the body to keep them up? Or maybe my '84 Duke is just drastically different from this one. When I removed mine they attached on either ends by the rubber tubes w/ just 2 or 3 brackets to hold it up along the way.

The only dumb question is one not asked.
A plenum is usually anything that ducts air somewhere so in this case it could be the intake or air cleaner etc..
I read his question a couple times and figured he was not asking about the under body pipes, hence the picture...

Thanks Dodgerunner, that picture was exactly what I needed. As for the coolant pipe, at the head is it secured with a nut and bolt or a screw? I ask because right now I have a screw holding it in place, it is the only fastener I have kickin around thats fits but it doesn't seem very secure and since I am on base with no car getting out of here to get a simple fastener is a pain.

Thanks

The pipe is screwed to the black steel bracket (it might even be the lifting ring) on the head, with a hex head sheet metal screw.
Looks kind of cheesy, but that's what holds it. It feels kind of "rickety" at best.
