Changing the Fuel Filer for an '84

Thank you to NIFE Member Ken Smith for this video

It was running rough and sounded like it was gasping for air over 25mph. Changing the fuel filter didn't work. Next step: flatbed it over to
Dave Armstrong at Ace Muffler. But not before I rant about people who don't know what they're doing trying to repair a car like the Fiero and
then blaming it on the car when they screw it up.

Within 10 minutes of the car arriving at his shop, Dave put the scanner on it and diagnosed the problem: a 28-year-old coolant temperature
sensor (original to the car) that was reading the coolant temperature as 20 degrees and telling the ECM to dump gas into the throttle body.


He replaced it, and now my car runs like a champ. Thanks, Dave. Part of keeping a Fiero on the road is knowing what you can repair yourself
and what to leave to a trained professional. Keep watching after the closing title card.
