Ok like the title says today i started up the fiero and was getting ready to head out as i smelled a burning smell coming from the rear compartment. So i shut the car off opened the deck lid and seen smoke coming from in between the firewall and exhaust manifold i looked in between and saw a burnt leaf got caught in the heat shield. I do park under a tree since its the only spot in the parking lot i can. Is there something missing that goes on the decklid to stop the leaves from getting in there and setting it up in flames. I know its not oil leak burning cause i already redid the valve cover gaskets

Note the removal of the 'rubber dust seal' from the rear deck. If you keep it on the car, it stops leaves from dropping on the engine. The only problem is that you have to clean it out before you open the deck, or you get 3 weeks worth of leaves dropping on the exhaust manifold. Most Fiero buyers were not doing that.
