I had an 86 Fiero for a short time. I want to get another one, after the Firebird is back on the road and my wife gets her Volkswagen Bus.

I have some customization ideas for it that I want to make happen, one of which will be to make it a V-8 and possibly a turbo version of that but that's just ideas.

Yes, yes you should.  I have been trying to get as much done while it's not quite summer as we are at the lake every weekend once it gets nice so that eats up a lot of time. We are actually headed there this Sunday. I have to get the skis in the water and the dock in. I picked up another jetski for free as it was filling the hull with water. There were multiple issues that caused it but the biggest was the exhaust manifold which is cooled with water had a hidden freeze plug that let go. It is all aluminum so I just TIG welded in some scrap piece I had. All set and it runs great so I can't wait to try it out. Free is awesome.  I have 5 skis and 4 of them were free. The other I picked up cheap. I always tell people who think I am rich and spend a bunch of money that you just have to know people and be able to fix stuff.

With access to a lake, free jetskis equal LOTS of fun!!
I have always liked the Indy Fieros, if I were to hit the lottery I would be tempted to get one. My moms neighbor has a 86? fiero GT in her garage under a blanket. It has been there for well over 25 years, never moved once. Her husband was a nut job I never got along with so I never talked to them about it. I would surmise it may have been her first new car, drove sparingly and put up for the future? Imagine it has low mileage, but sitting all of those years surely cant be kind on the mechanicals. This is the kind of person that thinks the car is worth $100G, in reality it may be worth 6 or 7.

That's what I noticed about my area with Trans Am's

"The same one just sold on Barret Jackson for $120,000. I know what my car is worth."

but you don't have a signal rust free part on the car. Even the parts that aren't supposed to rust have rust on them...….anyway...getting off track

Been a while since I've been on here.  Well Sunday, I put the GTA out of commission for a while.  Was getting it ready to take it to what used to be a huge cruise area when I was in high school and it starts having issues with a rough idle and stalling when I come to a stop.  Not something to deal with when you're cruising the strip lol.  Anyway, I know the 3rd gens are famous for having EGR valve issues, so it's off with the TPI plenum to start diagnosing.  I figure since I've got that off, I will probably replace the fuel pressure regulator as well.  Figured it was a matter of time since everything under the hood minus injectors, plugs, plug wires, o2 sensor, and MAP sensor is going on 30 years old lol.  I'm actually gonna delete the EGR instead of buying a new one.  Who knows, I may have someone burn a new chip for it while its down to accommodate for the headers, underdrive pulleys, and improved air flow lol.  Also, had to deal with replacing the starter on the Denali Sunday.  I replaced it 4 years ago.  Would have thought I'd gotten more than that out of it,  but its not too much of a chore to swap.  Been part of the "necessary" work force at the auction.  Now if they would just call my wife back.  In all honesty, she is more essential at the auction than I am lol.

That stinks the car is down and out just in time for summer, but it sounds like it will run even better once you get it rolling again.

You have to tear so much off of those third gen TPI motors just to get to the EGR valve. I replaced it when replacing the injectors on my '89 Iroc-Z. It was still working just fine but I didn't want to tear all of that off again just to get to it. You should be up and running in no time.

I had an '86 Z28. EGR was being replaced under factory recall. Shop had the car for 2 days having problems with it. They kept wanting to upsell a tune up, oil change, new brakes, they tried numerous things, I suppose trying to make up for the lost revenue.

The EGR delete kit and new O2 sensor is on the way.  It doesn't look like much to get to the EGR, but its deceiving.  This started last fall when we went to a cruise night and it died while trying to park it and again at an intersection.  Seems to be fine until it warms up which leads me to the EGR being stuck open...….or maybe its closed lol.  Thought it might be the IAC valve and it still could be that.  Seemed to run better after taking it off and cleaning it.  Like I said, all of these mentioned parts were on it when it rolled off the line in 1991, so its a very good possibility that just from age, they aren't working properly.  Going to borrow a fuel pressure gauge to hook up to it to see how the pressure is.  If it registers fine, I may not do a fuel pressure regulator yet, but then again, since I've got it torn apart lol.

I still remember, quite vividly, how much of a pain in the butt removing/putting on that bracket that secures the fuel lines to the driver's side head is. I wouldn't mind giving a swift kick to balls to the engineer who designed it! :lol:

So I need to get a new alternator, on my way from CA to AZ, about 150 miles from my destination it took my of the road and had to get it towed (not a cheap tow, in the middle of nowhere)... anyways, that will be addressed shortly.

I have also now noticed that I for sure need to get my hood bump stops replaced, anyone have any or should I just get them of eBay? I just don't know how to make sure I get the right one for my ride...

Anyways, been a while since I posted here so hope everyone is doing well and staying safe!!!

Yep, it's unhook this and that, remove these bolts, hold your breath, do a rain dance...……….lol.  I should have done what you did when I replaced the injectors ten years ago, but I'm "frugal", which my wife calls cheap, and felt they were fine.  Now that I actually have some funds to deal with it, my son is asking why I'm throwing money into parts that may not be an issue.  Remember, he's an auto tech, so after hearing that, I know he is one of the good ones who makes sure the customer isn't getting hosed at the dealership where he works.  Anyhoo, I now need to find the time, between updating(aka replacing) a back deck and replacing shocks and suspension pieces on the truck since it's become a daily driver again.

I'd be curious to know how a TPI motor runs when converted to sequential port EFI. There's a company called EFI connection that sells a 24x conversion kit to older SBC and vortec motors, so they can run with an LS1 ECU.

I was looking in to that conversion when I bought a '95 Z28 donor car. I was planning on using the LT1 for my '87 Monte SS swap project and wanted to replace the Opti-spark. I eventually went the LS route.

You guys will love this....  Monday night I was driving home from work.  I was on a State Route but it was a winding back road with a few places to pass, if you have the balls to do it.  It's my usual route. 

This time, there was a slower than dirt Equinox in front of me.  4 Cyl, AWD, and can't get out of it's own way.  I was losing patience and just wanted to get home, and I knew there was a straight away coming up.  So I downshifted and got ready to pass this idiot.

A couple of seconds later, here's the straight away and there's no oncoming traffic.  Ok it's now or never.  I peeked over into the oncoming lane and just as I was about to floor it, at the last second, I had decided not to pass for some reason.  Just as I crept back behind the Equinox - wouldn't you know it - an ATV with two people on it came out of the woods and crossed the road at the EXACT spot that I would have been passing the Equinox  :shock: :shock: 

I would have slammed right into them.  No question about it.  Not only would it have totaled my car, but those two riders would have been either severely injured or worse.

I want to know - WHAT told me not to pass?  Premonition?  The Pontiac Gods?  I guess we'll never know.

I think the Lord was looking out for all involved, and Decaff was fortunate enough to be able to hear the concern and have the second thoughts. Otherwise a bunch of lives would be changed for the worse in so many different ways.

Are you saying I could hear the ATV coming?  That's not the case.  Didn't hear a darn thing.  I'm still wondering why I didn't pass that Equinox. 

Meh, it's moot point right now. 

Here's something way more interesting.  A buddy of mine brought his ride over for some much needed exhaust work.  The instant we got the thing up on jackstands, we abandoned tearing into anything.  Here's why:



This is a prime example of what NEPA winters do to a vehicle.  This one happens to be an 05.

You can dismiss it if you want to, but I believe God intervenes and can influence us to change course.

I drool over the booth that this sign sits in.  Its also got restored old gas pumps and lots of cool old automotive memorabilia.  Pontiac stuff doesn't show up much so that's why I'm getting a nervous twitch every time I look at that pic.  My current back deck project is helping keep my focus away from it lol.

I'm guessing it was 30-32 inches across and probably 16-18 inches tall.  If it was a two sided sign, I'd have pulled the trigger on it without hesitating.  It is heavy for its size.

That would sell for double at Hershey, its not a bad price, just depends on priorities i suppose. Any bit of extra dough i have needs to go towards my resto right now. Be glad when that is over!

Sign is likely worth the money, but I wonder if they would take a little less? what if they said yes at $375.

I'd bet they take a lot less if you have cash in hand. Businesses have had to pay all the same bills with less or no income during the stay at home period and might be glad to have the money to pay bills with even if it was selling at a loss on that one item. I was in retail 30 years and did it many times.

You are so right John, a couple hundred in cash is better than a piece of steel hanging on the wall!

I did not think that little sign cost so much, I would have guessed twice the size for that price.

Signs are high now.  Pole-size Pontiac signs are going for thousands instead of hundreds.  I went to Chip's Dixie Gas swap meet last year and I was plenty surprised at how much the common ordinary stuff had gone up.
I want to be like Paul Kenny when I grow up
