There was one of our members here that came to my barbecue gatherings and he had mentioned a shop in Richmond that works on Fieros.

For the life of me I can't remember the member or the shop. Getting old I guess.

So any information would be greatly appreciated since I need a couple of gremlins chased down and my AC fixed.

Thanks

Electrically, it tries to restart itself after turning off and it's way over charging the battery. Had to have the battery jumped and there was enough reverse charge it melted AAA's heavy duty jumper cables.

It appears I have both a starter and alternator problem but beyond that I don't know what's up. When it's running it holds proper voltage, idles properly and glows the exhaust manifolds...the last item will be resolved, taking it in to remove/delete the cat and the rattling muffler with a new Spintech muffler and C6 resonator tips...as for the A/C problem I don't know where to start. Had dye put in the system and no leaks were found, compressor clutch engages and fan kicks on but cold air after recharge lasts only about a week. So, there's a leak somewhere in the system...but where?

I have never heard or seen a Fiero try to restart itself. Over charging issue I have seen before and it somewhat common. AC leaks r thr worst to find but one that size should be pretty easy to find unless down by the condensor.
