GM Pass Key II Malfunctions: Bypassing V.A.T.S System
Your car won't start? SECURITY light steady lit or flashing? More then
likely it is the Vehicle Anti Theft System (V.A.T.S) at fault. Over time
the resister pellet imbedded in your car key wears out from years of
inserting and removing from the ignition lock cylinder. Here is a cheap way
to bypass it, so you can get back on the road.
Pontiac Fiero NHTSA Frontal Crash Test
This is one of the original crash test videos for the Pontiac Fiero. In
this video, dummies were restrained with the factory seatbelts.
"Fieros are deathtraps!" Not hardly......
Many people think that the Pontiac Fiero is an unsafe vehicle due to its
small size. It turns out that the Fiero was the safest vehicle ever tested
by the NHTSA without airbags. It was the second safest vehicle on the road
in 1985, second to the Volvo DL Wagon. The DL had airbags. Even by today's
standards, the Fiero still rivals many newer vehicles on the road today.
The methods of testing are exactly the same in 2010 as they were back in
1979 when NHTSA began testing cars. Cars are tested by impacting a solid
barrier at 35 MPH.
The Fiero received a 5 star crash rating for both driver and passenger. A
5-star rating means a 10% or lower chance of serious injury. So 5-star
means the same now as it meant 25 years ago.
Here are a few comparisons:
1984 Pontiac Fiero
Head Injury Criterion: 356.5/308.6
Chest Deceleration (G): 30.9/29.9
Femur Load 840/800 800/740
2003 Cadillac Deville
Head Injury Criterion: 826/507
Chest Deceleration (G): 75/58
Femur Load: 825/1297 875/848
2007 Buick Lacrosse
Head Injury Criterion: 374/259
Chest Deceleration (G): 43/42
Femur Load: 1099/1112 909/405
2009 Ford Focus
Head Injury Criterion: 521/389
Chest Deceleration (G): 40/40
Femur Load: 1133/1652 1138/968
As you can see, the 1980s Pontiac is still one of the safer cars on the
road today. The Fiero is as good as or better than many of today's vehicles
that have airbags.
The Fiero is also very stable. The Fiero received a Static Stability
Factor, or Rollover Resistance rating, of 1.47. This equates to a 5-star
Even if you are unfortunate enough to get into a rollover accident, the
Fiero excels in safety once again with its incredibly strong roof
structure. According to the NHTSA, the Fiero was tested by inverted drop
and roof crush testing. In the inverted drop test, the Fiero, along with
cars like the Ford F150 and Plymouth Laser were turned over and dropped on
their roofs. The Fiero scored best with 8.3 cm crush on the a-pillar and
3.8 cm on the B-pillar. The Ford F-150 had the worst rating with 42.5cm
crush on a-pillar and 40.6cm on the B-pillar. The Plymouth Laser actually
had a slightly better rating than Fiero for B pillar with 3.2cm crush.
In another publication, NHTSA tested cars roofs by crushing them with a
steel plate and hydraulic ram. In the example given, the Chevrolet S10 had
the worst rating with 5320 lbs roof strength, while the Fiero has the
highest rating with 9909 lbs of roof strength. This equates to 3.53 roof
strength to weight ratio, complying with even the most recent roof strength
requirement of 3.00:1 strength ratio. It is kind of funny how the Pontiac
Fiero is still meeting many of the most modern crash test requirements
without even frontal airbags.....
Now for Death rate. Death rate is a number given to cars to reflect the
likelihood of death in any particular vehicle. The Fiero, along with Camaros and Firebirds,
happen to have a very high death rate. A high death rate doesn't mean the
car is unsafe, it just means that this type of car is going to be driven faster and more recklessly,
increasing the chance of an accident, which in turn, increases the chance
of serious injury or death. If you hit a concrete wall at 80MPH with no
seatbelts on, I don't care what car you are in, you will be killed. The
human body just simply cannot take that kind of G load and people need to
stop driving like idiots. Please comment. I would like to see your reaction
to this and hear some of your crash stories. Please drive responsibly.

1987 Cadillac Allante Quick Tour, Start Up, & Rev With Exhaust View - 47K
1987 Cadillac Allante
This has a 4.1L V8 making only 170 HP while paired to a 4 Speed Auto.
Cadillac/GM those days came out with this car with the intention to compete
against european coupes like the Jaguar XJS or the Mercedes SL. But this
was a terrible car in terms of quality, ease of use, an electrical
nightmare, & a very problematic engine. An the best of all, they had
the guts to make it FWD & at the price of $54,700. It was cheaper than the
other, but it in now way could compete and the car was never successful in
terms of sales.
You can see the endless supply of buttons to push all over the place,
making a ceiling fan installation look like a sinch.
86 Fiero GT Coolant Leak.
Got a coolant leak, trying to pinpoint where it is coming from. I replaced
the factory wire hose clamp with an updated hoseclamp on the bottom coolant
hose (Eng to Pipe) but still leaking. Not sure where it is coming from,
looks to be from somewhere between the t-stat housing and the lower rear
coolant hose (eng to pipe).
V8 Fiero on Milwaukee Mile
This is a brief video of a V-8 Pontiac Fiero at the 2008 "Drive the
Milwaukee Mile" Car Show. This is a 1988 Fiero retrofitted with a '84
front fascia. The original four cylinder engine has been swapped with a
350 cubic inch Chevy Small Block LM-1 V-8 with Tuned Port Injection (TPI).
The 17" wheels and Goodyear Eagle F1 ultra performance tires cover 11" Camaro disk brakes in the
front and Cadillac STS disk brakes in the back. The video shows a walk
around the car and a slow run around the Milwaukee Mile race track in line
behind a pace car.
