I have been on a long list of chasing problems with a nrw fiero i picked up. Did a new distributor, got it to start and idle but was still having some stalling. The fuel pump finally gave out and i just replaced that today. It starts right up and runs now, but it is idling around 2k now. Before it was a problem it was sitting at 1k. Is there something im missing to check?

I also have the fuel gauge reading error. I took a pad to the resistor while the tank was down. Before it was sitting right about the full mark, now when i start it it pegs way up to the top. Could the arm of got caught all the way up?

You have probably dislodged a vacuum line, or cracked the EGR tube.

Gauge reading high means that there is infinite resistance, or no connection....perhaps you broke the resistor wire.

Is it possible to buy a new resistor? Can i rewrap it? I really dont want to have to guess my gas level.
Well looks like the next thing im doing is an egr deleteđź‘Ť

I did follow that, after i followed it im getting an infinite reading like its way over full. So my arms stuck way up or my wrapping is shot.

OR....there is a bad connector or a broken wire... (You could get lucky, )

There is a connector just under the lid of the sending unit in the tank. If you jumper the two chassis leads, there should be no resistance and the gauge should read 'E'...if it does not and still reads over FULL, there is a break in the circuit to the gauge. If in in fact reads 'E', the problem is somewhere in the sending unit, and most probably the resistor wire.
