  • Fiero power steering help

    Im in need of help. I have a lamborghini lp640 replica. Its donor is a fiero 86gt. My car is running stiff and steering wheel hard to turn. Is there an area in the car where i can put power steering fluid in. I looked every and i couldnt find an area. Please help if you can with pictures

    HI all,

    The Fiero, all years, had no power steering. It is a rack n pinion... Excuze any misspellings.. The slower the speed with a rack the harder it is to turn

      Yup, Fieros never had power steering. You can add power steering to the car though

        So in order to have car drive smooth i would have to replace the whole rack n pinion. Because it takes all my strength to turn my car

          With your expertise what would you suggest. I dont have the funds to add power steering.

            No, you don't have to replace the whole rack and pinion, just add an electric power steering motor in-line in the steering shaft (the shaft that runs from the steering wheel through the steering column and down to the rack and pinion).

              It doesn't cost a lot if you can do the work yourself. If you cant, then you're stuck.
              Look at this thread of a guy who did it to his fiero.

              I know the HHR and Cobalt SS both have electric power steering which can be adapted to fit the fiero easily as welll

                        That's almost $1K for the electric steering!!! The part from the junkyard is about $60

                            Electric power steering was going to be my suggestion. I'm planning on looking into changing out the whole GM column anyways. That's the replica dead giveaway.
