Had issues and turned out to be the pump also. Drive down the highway and th ecar would shut off after it got super hot. Once the pump totally failed I figured it out and it doenst get hot anymore. No lean fuel mix. I think these new fuels kill our old pumps. Rick B

Life is too short to waste time hating the Fiero.

I'm glad to hear there was happy ending.

The alcohol in the new fuels does not play well with old/original fuel pumps on our cars. The seals swell up and can stop the pump from running once you stop and then try to restart the car. Ask me how I know.
If I let it sit for about an hour then I could restart the car and drive. But as soon as I shut it off again.................
