Hi Alex,
Check both the intake temp sensor and engine coolant sensor when engine is cold. Both sensors should ohm out similarly readings. You could also check temps using Aldl readings too. Thatíd be better because then you can see what the ecm sees. ohm table.
If the readings donít match at cold, one of them has failed.
The reasoning is if the ecm thinks the motor is cold, it will keep idle commanded high and will also not allow closed loop operations (kind of like the choke is on).
The other culprits are vacuum leaks and the biggest is the egr tube. But looks like youíve addressed that already.
Hope this helps!

Do they pull it for you or do you have to do it yourself?

For a while now, I have been dealing with a high idle condition that will not go away. I have an 87 GT that I bought from a guys who had it sitting for a couple of years. Initially, the idle was high and hunting but I have eliminated the hunting condition. Here are the things I have done and checked to make sure all is ok.

1. Replaced Fuel sender and pump (both were not working)
2. Replaced spark plugs. Cables looked in good condition so no change there
3. Replaced the IAC with the old one since the new one did not work.
4. Replaced vacuum lines. Old ones were brittle and broken. No vacuum leaks now. checked by spraying carb cleaner.
5. Replaced fuel injectors since old ones were not good
6. Replaced EGR and tube with one from Fiero Store
7. Fuel pump holding holding correct pressure

I have tried numerous times to set the timing per the manual instructions (at least 7 times). I now have the idle from 3K rpm down to 1800 rpm. When ALDL is grounded, the timing is at 10 degrees. Once I finish setting the timing and I remove the ground, the timing goes from 10 degrees to a higher one past the 12 degrees.

At this point I need help from one of you since I cannot find the problem and I do not know what else to do. I would gratefully appreciated.

There's an 88 Formula "ITA race car" with a 5 speed at the Orlando LKQ.

The cradle was there last weekend.

Yep - Welcome.
We meet on the 1st Thursday of every month in Casselberry. Most arrive between 6:30 - 7:00.
Publix parking lot on 17-92.
Then we go inside Anthony's Pizza and usually wrap up around 9:00.

We aren't a very "structured" group. Pretty laid back.

I am looking for a 2.8 cradle if anyone has a spare that they'd like to sell.

I just wanted to wave a hand and say thank you for accepting me into your forum!
Iím a balding white male, whose going fat, have two kids and am still married, even though I have a gaggle of Fieros. My wife hates them and wonít ride in them. The kids love them and have called ďdibsĒ on them when I die. Right now, only one of them runs and the rest are stuck up in Augusta, Ga, where I was recently banished from for being way too cool. My mullet just balded-off,  so the jokeís on them. The long and short of it is that I can make you a great deal on a couple ďrescuesĒ, as long as youíre willing to pick them up and drag them back!
Enough blah,blah.
Fiero list:
1984 2m4 base w/ac. Running. Given to brother because of transfer/move.
1985 GT notchie. 3.4, Dis, digital cruise, 7730 ecm, f23 trans, mr. mikes seats, updated pontiac CD player, ac added, crap paint, daily driver!  Itís the ugliest one I own, but my favorite!
1987 Gt 3800sc 5sp. Sunbird seats, custom paint.  Donít like it. Still in augusta
1988 base coup. 3.4 5sp. Some assembly required. Still in augusta
Iím really looking forward to attending a meeting eventually, but life keeps getting in the way. Every time Iíve tried, I have to stay late at work or I4 gets traffic all the sudden. I donít really know my way around just yet, and am just now learning to get around all the toll roads. I live in winter Garden, but work in Davenport, so Iíd probably come straight from work to the meeting. Might be quicker to go home first, then over to the meeting?  I dunno.

I look forward to eventually meeting some of you at the next meeting (hopefully) and venting about Fiero issues.
