Bugger left me stranded last night. Stalled when traveling on a busy stretch of road. Threw on the hazards then started pushing her - uphill - to the gas station driveway that was about 250ft away. Fortunately I was in my ABUs (USAF uniform) and within 30 seconds of starting to push I had two other dudes helping me and a tail vehicle with hazards on protecting us all. I couldn't thank them enough for their help.

Now I have to figure out why this car dies when going uphill. It started up after letting it sit for about 10 minutes, so I'm figuring there's some trash in the gas tank and I need to replace the fuel pump pickup sock.

Unfortunately, since I don't have any A or B-pillars in the car, I sliced my right palm and thumb open, and bled all over my uniform. LOL. The 'ol girl drew first blood!

Installed some sort of cup holder. Largely because the lady needs something to put her drinks in when we go driving. Had one of those cheap ones lying around and modified it a bit and got it in there. Took about ten minutes worth of time.




Then drove around town a bit and spotted these two Fieros. The one on the right was on eBay recently and I don't think it sold.

I just got done changing the plugs; a job I always dread. But, I took some advice from a thread on here awhile back and bought a stubby, flex head ratchet. It really made things allot easier.

Installed a hidden PA system in the passenger compartment footwell. Speaker is mounted in the front compartment near the radiator facing down.. Little bastard is nice and loud.



Also tonight after work I experimented with painting one of my engine bay grills.



I don't like how it turned out. Looks like I'm going to sand it down tomorrow after work and try again! Any suggestions on the type of paint? I got Rustoelum Semi-Gloss Black.

When I get off work I'll finish installing the Speedhut gauges into this car and figuring out why the cooling fan doesn't come on because I just sold my daily driver Fiero. Thank goodness it's not supposed to rain most of this week. I like riding to work better than driving that car anyway.

hey give me a call I have a honda prelude turbo you might want for the trade on the fiero 3.4 43-224-7807 in bowie

Started digging my 86 (non-choptop) out from under the clutter in my parent's garage back home in Ohio (Middletown)..

My father, who recently passed away, was somewhat of a packrat when it came to his garage.

Still looks good, now running ??? that may be another matter. I stored it away in 1999 when i moved to Florida, then came back a year or two later to have the fuel pump replaced, but haven't run it since !

I guess we will see when i finally get it completly unearthed ? it is an 86 2m4, with only 88 K miles. Black with notchback bodystyle.

At any rate the interior looks very good, except for the .....uh, er staples my dad put in the drooping headliner,....hehehe bless his soul.

Guess i can't complain too much since he did it, when he took it and paid to get it painted for me a few years back.

I replaced all the e-brake cables, springs, etc in my 88. Amber detailed the interior, and gave it a good wax. Then we tucked it into the back garage to make room to bring in our next project...

wow,..just about have the car uncovered ! only the front nose is under debris ! Talk about a bunch of stuff ! a few spider webs in the wheel wells and in the pipes, but so far nothing else moving hehehe.

They do sometimes get field mice in the winter, so let's hope none have made a home in the usual fiero places !? Like i said the inside looks good and mice free.

As far as running, i just might be kicking myself if i can't find where my late father left his set of my car keys,...i left my set sitting on my key ring in Florida,..Duh !!

Dug out the winter beater Fiero from its long summer slumber.

Compression checked. Getting tired. (1)-150 (2)-145 (3)-150 (4)-140

Replaced the plugs with R43TS6 gapped at .060"

Checked fuel pressure. Last winter old pump could only muster about 7psi, so I put in a MPFI Beretta pump.

This year, regulator in the TBI went south, so I disassembled TBI, installed most of TBI rebuild kit 96-617, bent tab on lower spring perch and rotated 4 turns up on adjustment stud. 12.5 psi now.

Installed the "new style" gear-reduction starter from a 98 Lumina 3100 V6. Fits the 4cyl just fine and a lot quieter and lighter too.

Installed new starter wire since the 2 year old cable terminal at the starter totally disintegrated in the Detroit salt-spray bath.

Fixed a vacuum leak due to deteriorated evap. hose.

Hooked up the scanner, and made sure O2 sensor is still healthy (lots of cross-counts per minute).

Sprayed lots of "MAC'S 1073" Electrical terminal corrosion inhibitor on everything to delay the inevitable.

Gonna take the beater to the autox this weekend to make sure its in sound operating condition.

Drove up to Racine for a car show, there were 3 other Fieros besides mine there; more than what I've seen all year around here.

Dropped my 86 SE off at Fiero-Flyer's for the 3.8 SC can't wait to get it back, then ordered some rear coil overs from Held motorsports. Just starting my project but hope to have her ready for next summer, so much to do so little time.

Installed new radiator cap and thermostat cap. I opened the thermostat cap to check the fluid level and discovered that it was low, so I started adding fluid and it kept leaking down. I looked for leaks and found none but after adding 1/2 gal of coolant I discovered that the overflow tank was filling up.

Update: 3 days later driving home from work water is pouring out of the water pump vent. The new caps are now holding more pressure than the water pump seal can hold.
