Hay Dan, have you considered a long rope tied to the front with a brightly colored bead at the end. Might make a nice "pull toy".
Don't feel bad, mines acting funky too.

Dan,

The solution to your problem is really simple. All you need to do is have several Meras. That way, when one acts up, you just go to the next one and keep on driving.

I have a 1988 Pontiac Fiero V6. On the way to a car show today I was over 45 minutes in a line to have the car photographed and registered. Low idle. Temp gauge looked ok. BUT THEN the temperature light came on. I was next to get my car photographed so I kept the car running about 5 minutes with the temp light on. I was now driving to the parking spot, about 100 feet away and the CHECK ENGINE light came on. At this time I pulled out of the line and turned everything off.

Coolant was dripping from the underside front of the car..... a lot.

I let it sit about an hour. I opened the engine compartment and everything was clean. No fluid mess. I opened the front hood and was surprised that everything was clean also. No fluid spray. The overflow reservoir was empty though.

I need to get the car home or to a mechanic .... what is my next step? Throw some water in it? I am not a motor guy so please help me out. I'm about 2 miles from a NAPA stote and a mecahnic.

Did your radiator fan ever come on? Did it overheat only when the car was not moving? Were you running your A/C? Was your overflow container full? Did the water get sucked back into the system when the car cooled?

Bring it out here and we'll fix it.

Yeah I won't overheat out there in Arizona!!!!

I think I heard the fan (not 100% sure)
Overheated while sitting idle not moving. No A/C. After the overheating the overflow was empty or almost empty. Not sure if it got sucked back...I looked at the overflow AFTER it cooled.

I just drove it to a mechanic a few blocks away and had him replace the thermostat and flush the system for now. There's a few hundred bucks I'm sure.

I think the Mera would look awesome with Gull Wing doors like the Deloreon.




Wow, just found this looking for a fiero with Gull Wings (Not really finding any, most be really tough to do properly)

But this has a striking resemblance to the Mera but with gull wings.

i heard that it was next to impossible to do the gullwings.....without big money and skill.

but i did have a bid on some vertical Lambo doors for my Mera X, but got out bid
them Lambo doors would look cool on a Mera i think

Julian,
do you suspect the fluid on the ground was in your overflow???
or was the overflow low to begin with???

it seems weird to not had a "blow" with all that coolant missing..
but if overflow gets too its sucks air in the system to cause a bubble and allow it to overheat
could that have happened here??

Julian,

Did you find the coolant leak? Perhaps it was one of the rubber hoses that connect to the metal cooling lines under the car. Have you ever replaced these?

Update on my coolant issue..... (for those who care)..... lol.... and thank you for all the pointers.

I drove it to a local mechanic (who had a Fiero on the lot), had the rad flushed and filled the proper way with no air pockets...replaced the thermostat. Need to look at why my gauge didn't warn me before the dummy light. Probably broken or stuck. Drove her home. Had my mechanic look it over and turns out my fan or a relay to the fan is faulty. Will have it looked at & fixed next week. No damage as far as we can see. It was only the overflow that poured out and all hoses & gaskets intact.

phew.

Next car show in 2 weeks.

My experience has shown the biggest oil leak culprit is the "O" ring on the distributer shaft.

You'll probably see it again--$10k+ bid and reserve not met.

Wayne, I agree with Richard. The distributor O ring is a major source of oil leaks on the 2.8. I replaced mine with a better quality O ring and have not had a leak yet. Take a flashlight and shine it at the base of the distributor. If it is wet, that is most likely your culprit.

A bad head gasket would leak coolant or compression, but not oil. The other areas to check are valve covers, oil pan gasket, and where the oil filter screws on. I have seen where a flter leaks because a gasket from a previous filter stayed attached, even though the old filter was removed.

Wayne if that is your leak, it is an easy repair. If you decide to tackle it LMK. There are a number of posts with pics on Pennocks showing how to do it step by step.
If you take your time, it is no more than about an hour to do.

There are TWO critical marks to make when removing the distributer: one, the position of the rotor with the engined stopped, and two, the position of the rotor when the distributer gears release. You must twist the distributer slightly to disengage the gears and lift out the distributer, this is the position of the rotor you will need to re-mesh the gears when reinstalling.

Not really rocket science--good luck.

Too much money, not enough sense! You can find very well maintained Testarossas for around 50k somtimes even less.

. . . and you can find some nice Fiero/TR kits for a lot less--cost and trouble. For $50k you can surely find a nice used Renuzzi Calspyder (Ferris Bueller) or even a McBurnie Daytona (Miami Vice).

Question of the day!

On a Mera painted the red used by Corporate Concepts, is that the same shade as the factory Fiero bright red? I figured since they used the factory roof panel they would match the paint to the original color. Am I correct on this?

Second question. Would an actual Ferrari red be much brighter than the original Mera red? Anyone painted their cars a brighter red than original?

I have an '88 GT in Bright Red WA8774. my Mera is Dodge Flame Red PR4 which is claimed to be a near match to the original--the two cars are nowhere near the same color.

Richard, can you post a picture of both red's side by side? Would I be correct in assuming the Fiero red it the brighter color?

Based on the picture, the Corsa Rosa appears brighter than the stock Mera red. Is this correct?

There is a picuture of my Mera a ways down in this thread. This is the factory original Mera red. It does not look as bright as the actual Fiero red to me.
