87 Plymouth reliant trouble codes 12 22 24 26 52? Came to the conclusion it is the computer causing all these problems how do I get the computer programed to this car?

If you could find a salvage yard car with same year/engine/trans you might just swap ECU. These units seldom fail, but it does happen. First insure ECU is properly mounted and grounded--same for engine.

What cause a sluggish acceleration on the 87 fiero

poor fuel pressure and or volume, poor fuel quality, ignition timing is off, bad throttle position sensor(TPS), dirty air filter, fuel injector/s dirty or plugged or not functioning properly, bad manifold air pressure sensor(MAP). just some things that can cause your problem. I would suggest taking your car to a shop to have it diagnosed unless you have the testing equipment and specs to know what is within specs.

Why does my 87 reliant stalls when it gets hot.

Yes, the pick-up coil was a common cause of what you describe.
Drive along and suddenly die, but by the time help arrived it would re-start, and run for a while again, then quit again until it cooled down.

Why does my 87 reliant stall when it gets hot?

Sounds like vapor lock. This means that fuel is being boiled before it reaches the engine. Check for loose insulation, gas line exposed to exhaust pipe, etc. basically your gas has to remain cool before it gets used by the engine.

I git an 87 plym reliant and it will start but will not stay runn

I would suspect the pickup in the distributor. It is a common problem, and a fairly cheap and easy try. It is located under the rotor button, and should be about $15-20.

I don't know who posted that but yes you need to use a timing light. Unplug the coolant temp sensor and set the timing to what the underhood sticker says with a timing light.
