Eddie, there's a prescribed fill procedure for the Fiero, just because of what you described.
Remove the radiator cap and pour your coolant into the thermostat housing. The thermostat should be removed. When coolant flows out the radiator cap, tighten it.
Continue to fill at the thermostat housing until full.
Install the thermostat cap, leaving the thermostat out, and tighten only to the first click.
Start and run the engine until the discharge hose from the thermostat housing feels warm.
Remove the cap, top off the coolant, replace the thermostat and cap. Tighten until the arrow aligns with the discharge hose.
Fill the recovery reservoir to a level halfway between Hot and Cold level indicators.
Ogre beat me while I was typing, and giving the Granddaughter a bath, but I'll leave it up anyway.
