A cable located in the front of the engine bay (by front, I mean between the seats and engine).
Seems to have no purpose, because here's the other end: http://db.tt/5RhNe4mg

I got all excited thinking I found the missing link to my nonrunning car but I don't believe this is it.

Hard to tell from the pictures but my guess is that it's the crankcase evac tube that runs from the firewall side valve cover to the flexible connector that fits between the air filter box and the intake manifold.

Yeah that looks to be the "front" PCV tube for the L44 2.8L V6. It goes from the "front" valve cover (the grommet fits into the valve cover) to where the protrusion in the rubber air intake flex tube is. It doesn't actually have a PCV valve in this part of the setup. The PCV valve goes into the "rear" valve cover.

Isn't that tube that disconnect in recall work?
If so... doesn't connect to anything now.

Interesting stuff, Ogre. I see where it references some foam seals. Mine is all connected on my 88GT but I don't remember any of those foam seals. It's just a solid pipe from the rubber grommet at the valve cover to the rubber nipple on the air inlet assembly.

I'm looking for the EGR return line that is normally welded to the original PCV setup. It was left on the V6 engine with the recall work, and is usually pretty noticeable when someone takes a picture of the original PCV/EGR setup tube that's attached along the firewall. I don't see it on this particular one, so I believe it's got to be the "front" PCV hose that was installed under recall. It's not the original tube that would still be along the firewall.

I went out to look at my Fiero and I'm pretty sure the third picture is the 90 degree bend that goes into the recall air intake. It's just been detached in this picture and is being held close to the air canister. Normally it should go in pretty close to the throttle body opening where the air flex tube attaches to it.

It's been a while since I've had the PCV grommets on the valve covers off so I can't remember what the undersides look like, but if I'm right the photo with the grommet-looking thing on it is the valve cover grommet

I know you're new here, but it would be a whole lot more helpful if you mentioned the year and engine of your Fiero.

Believe it or not, every Fiero is not exactly like yours.

I don't think it was a huge issue to leave out the year considering the Fiero has two engine options, and experts on a Fiero forum *probably* have seen what I was showing them before. To me, it would be like a person showing me a hard drive and asking, "What is this?" Just as a computer person can identify a basic component, a car person can do the same.

Fiero84Freak seems to have figured things out...I'm also from around Little Rock so maybe we just have some kind of southern telepathy going on.

Anyway, wasn't a huge deal, just curiosity.

Perhaps the next time you need assistance, there won't be another southern boy to mind-meld with.

Suit yourself. I was just offering some friendly advice.
