If you mean a diagnostic section, post your problem in technical room.

Check out the Ogre's Cave section at the top of every page. Its not like webMD where you plug in symptoms, but lots of good info to help you diagnose issues.

thanks, I got the fever from my son, he gave me an 86 2.5 automatic sport coupe after my beautiful Mercedes 450SEL just stopped starting. I was still mourning, and he thought it would cheer me up and give me something to do..... boy did it!!! Just about everthing that goes wrong did go wrong 1 after another. I was learning and fixing and replacing parts and learning and one morning I lent it to someone...... I am now on my second bout with the "fever" it is different it's an 84 2.5 SE with a 4 speed . And I gave this to myself. I retired at 48 and have the time and willingness but knowledge and strength of a woman, which I am. I read directions and follow them. I need advice and count on this forum to help me. Any help is gladly recieved but I'm not going to do anything before I'm pretty sure it's right or won't make a problem worse.

The best symptom checker on my Fiero is the SES light.....If that goes on you have a good path to finding a fix. If it does not, ask away in the Tech section: there is an expert for just about any problem.

Good luck and keep it fun, if ya can.
Best tip I can give is to keep in mind that these are old cars, as in corroded electrics etc. That said, never rush out to by a replacement part like an ignition coil, MAP or other sensor etc until you've re-seated/or and or cleaned all related connectors. More often than not, someone will replace, say, an ignition coil and think it was the fix, whereas the car now runs again which will make he/she trash a good coil. Sadly the problem was not a faulty coil but rather the corroded connector/s that plugged into it. The act of swapping out the old one for the new one, cleaned the connector enough to make the car run again, at least for a few months.

As others have said, you can ask tech stuff in the tech section. You will probably get a few "use the search button" comments. Just ignore them they do it all the time. Reality is people suck at titling their posts so search can be a chore to wade through.

Man I am so happy to hear someone else say that. I totally agree. Search is a tool, not the be all, end all, of this forum.
