Anyone know of people in South Florida (near west palm beach) that are reliable Fiero mechanics that can help me work on my 87 GT and give me good advice. I already know Lou Benz and Alex Torres (Alex4mula), they are great but usually too busy to be able to give me some hands on help and training. I am also getting tired of going to normal shops and having them not be able fix things or having them try and end up breaking things instead. The few places that have worked on my car have done half ass work and I am done with them. If anything I would at least like to find a shop that is good with Fieros, one I can trust. One that I know will do the job right and that wont charge me an arm and a leg.
Welcome to the forum! Glad to see another local Fiero Owner! There are so few Fiero's in South Florida for some reason.
I have a friend that might be willing to lend you a helping hand. He is a fellow Fiero nut, and though not a professional mechanic, knows the Fiero VERY WELL. I was having trouble getting mine running smoothly, even after a mechanic could not figure it out. He brought over his laptop and scanner software, diagnosed it, and within just a half hour had her running perfectly. It turned out to be a bad TPS combined with low voltage coming from the control module.
Where in West Palm are you? I am close to the intersection of Haverhill Road and Lake Worth Road.
Hey john thanks for the welcome, im actually very close to you. I live in the Smith Farm gated community on Hypoluxo road by the Turnpike overpass just past Jog road. Let me know if you want to meet sometime, maybe you could introduce me to your friend. Old Lar thanks for the help they are a bit far from me but if I must I will check them out.
Good to know a few Fiero Owners around. I just got my fiero running agin. Expect to put on road 1st of the year and antique status with cheaper registration etc (I think). Working on cosmetics and many things in the mean time. No hurry/no air where the heck would I drive it? I saw a Palm beach fiero club web site but saw nothing posted in 10 years +. Looks like some sort of Fiero gathering would be good to get going? Could be somewhere to drive to!
Thanks for the welcome Zap, im down to get together for an event anytime. Just msg me here on pennocks and we can set something up. Still looking for Fiero Mechanics BTW if anyone knows any local ones please let me know. Thanks again guys.
