I am returning to the fiero scene with the same fiero. What has happened in the past months I have not been here I was using it as my daily driver all through the fall and winter everything going well. My house burn't down in January totaling my Fiero almost had a total loss with my Typhoon and had a total loss with my Grand National. The fiero was the least damaged and needs a lot of tlc it has been sitting in a shed since febuary with a water leak and body damage from the fire. Having went through several vehicles since January and only keeping one I forgot about the fiero and had no time to work on it. Now that I've completed school and have time to do stuff I'm going to attempt a revival of the Fiero and my new Grand National. It needs a lot of tlc and not sure whether I want to fix it up stock or just mod it this time? Heres its good side

Sorry to hear about the fire, I hope every one is ok?

Bad gasket or rust through on the tstat housing?
Time for a power plant upgrade?

I wish I could afford a 3800 SC but that's just not in the cards and the thermostat housing bolt holes need to be retapped

Very sorry to hear, but I am glad you are back! If you have the money, I would go ahead and mod it to your liking. Otherwise keep it stock. A half assed mod is a problem down the road/won't look as good as it would stock. (Like my very cheap LED interior lights I put in a few years ago which are all either burnt out or flickering now...)

Are you sure that it is leaking water because of the thermostat housing bolts? I had a leak from the same spot and it turned out to be one of those little rubber hoses that connects to the hard lines supplying the throttle body with coolant. I had coolant pouring everywhere and burning on my manifolds. I was afraid my head gaskets had finally let go! They are molded hoses and O'reilly's doesn't stock them, but they had a longer curvy hose for another vehicle that had the exact same curves for $10. I was able to cut both hoses out of this one longer hose. Might be good to look into or go ahead and replace so that it doesn't happen in the future.
