How to fush heater core in my 86' Pontiac Fiero GT?


If you need to flush the core you would be better to change it. It would get flushed when you flush the entire system. Also try changing you thermostat that is the usual first cause of running hot or a bad water pump. Good Luck!

My 86 Fiero SE clutch master cylinder is weeping


Replace it. Not a difficult job. Be careful the bracket on the V6 4spd. isn't strong so don't break it while loosening the slave cylinder retaining nuts.

Radio and horn will not work


I had the same exact issue today on my 86 Fiero. The Radio and Horn stopped working same time. There is a 20 amp fuse that is marked for the Horn but no mention of the radio. It is in the middle of the Fuse box. 86 -88 should have the same fuse box. ( If you reference the Chilton book they say the fuse is for Horn Cigarette lighter etc. but again no mention of the radio) I just happened to check this fuse (It was blown) and sure enough everything came back. Hope this helps......
