  7. Very cool cruiser. notallthere is our resident canuckistanti based out of Sarnia Ontario and his missis has a Fiero too. So you two can swap parts stories for sure. Do you know many of the local Pontiac guys in the Toronto / Northern Toronto car seen? I have a buddy that lives in Northern Toronto. He currently owns a white '63 Laurentian wagon with a copper top and a 3-speed stick. His name is Pete.
  8. Nice Fiero! Love that green. Look forward to hearing more about the build
  9. Hello all from Toronto Canada, New to the forum, but not the facebook page. Figured it's time to join here too. I've always been a Pontiac fan for as long as I can remember, before I even got my first car. Since 2003 my obsession has been a 1987 Pontiac Fiero GT. Over the past 15 years this car has gone through a lot from motor swap, suspension & brake upgrades, to new paint in 2015, then a full frame restoration nov 2016 - June 2017. Unlike a lot of really nice LOW mileage rides on this site, this car was driven. When I bought it in spring 2003, it had 227,000 on the odometer. First few years it was a daily driver for me too but then I really started working on the car, today it's a summer cruiser with over 400,000kms and more to come. Presevering the Excitement!

  11. I took my car in (1999 Pontiac Grand Am, 2.4 L) got a code for the Throttle Position Sensor. Replaced that, same thing happened. It would hesitate when I accelerate and the trac off light would come on. Along with my service engine light. Took it back to have the codes ran and it popped the same code for the throttle position sensor. So again I replaced that and the piece that connects. Spliced the wires. Went back and it still ran the same code. Already replaced the spark plugs, and fuel filter. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Another thing I noticed is that it idles at 600 RPM, and the throttle body barely opens up when the car is at 2500 RPM.
  12. Glad to hear you found the start of your issues
  13. Welp, in a recent turn of events, we actually discovered the Security light is staying solidly on and the ignition coils aren’t getting any spark. Time for a new ignition lock cylinder or resistor bypass under the glove box...
  14. Hey guys. I have a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am 2.2L with 152k miles on it. Was driving the other day and it sputtered then shut off practically dieing on its face. It cranks but won’t fire now. We replaced the MAP sensor, ignition control module, TPS sensor, checked every fuse and relay, even replaced the battery and checked the alternator, getting fuel...nothing still. Does anyone have any kind of clue what I can check? Google shows me a whole slew of issues with this car but it’s overwhelming even thinking about where to begin. Haven’t checked for spark, we aren’t sure how to do this with this coil on boot setup this car has.

  16. Welcome aboard. Can't beat a '66 Turquoise Pontiac Looks like 8-Lug Rims in the 1st pic but seem to have a unique paint scheme in the 2nd making it look more like a hub cap? Anyhow looks good and love the skirts! Cheers
  17. Thank you, its cool being a part of a community that all cherishes the same thing
  18. Awesome ride N story. Thank you for your service, welcome to FP.
  19. If the engine is turning over, and the distributor is not turning. Most likely the gear pin is broken that holds the gear in place on the dist shaft. As Frosty said you also have the oil pump drive on the bottom as well. If your lucky, pulling the dist, it will come out with the gear and all pieces to the pin still attached. If you've lost anything in the engine, your job justa got much bigger. Almost impossible for a dist to get stuck. It does have bearings on the shaft so can't say never. Good Luck.
  20. Google's Waymo self-driving car division on Wednesday brought California Highway Patrol officers to the classroom to go teach them how to deal with self-driving cars. KNTV reported that Waymo employees showed the highway patrol officers not only how to pull over an autonomous vehicle but how self-driving cars actually operate. Waymo provided...View the full article
  21. I hope she didn’t get sand in his pants!😲
  22. Thanks. I was a tad bit surprised to see this baby at this year's indoor winter car show. I was not expecting a Smokey car at all.
  23. Its actually currently in transit from the marshlands of northern Iowa down to Phoenix. Off the bat she hemorrhages oil so im going to chase that leak. After that just restore to factory as best I can.
  24. Love to hear about these family stories around cars! Certainly looks to be in good shape on the outside from what I can tell from pics. Look forward to hearing about your journey with it! Any plans for it right now?
  25. Welcome bro. Thanks for the pics 😁
