On some 4 cyl models, the oil filter is in the bottom of the oil pan. It is a large round metal plate with a nut in the middle.
Removing the filter also drains the oil. It can be very messy.

It gives 3 quarts just as a starting point, it says this for the 4-cyl and 6-cyl, just so you don't overfill it. The distance between the two marks/notches on the dipstick represents 1-quart. If it's exactly on the low mark, then add 3/4 of a quart and see where it ends up, should be about 3/4 of the way to the other notch. Don't add quarts at a time, overfilling your oil can be just as bad or worse than if you underfill it. You'll be breaking oil seals all over....not good! :)

have fun

if you've added the oil and started the car and the oil level is at the add mark with the engine off, allowing a minute or so for the oil to drain back down to the oil pan, add 1 more quart

Not Sure What Engine to Replace Iron Duke in Fiero


I don't know if you listened to the insane person who previously answered but in a fiero w/o any mods you can bolt in a 3.4 V6 (1992-1995 Camaro/Firebird) or a 4.9 Cadillac V8, four cylinders I'm fuzzy on but I think cavaliers, corsicas etc. engines bolt in, you can do an ecotech but it requires ***loads of work. There is always the Northstar or 350 V8 option ;-] The point is, with a fiero, any engine can go in, just amounts to hours and dollars...
