The availability of these tubes has been an issue from almost the very begining of the Pontiac Fiero.
Fiero under-car replacement long coolant tubes
This starts from almost day one when the 1984 Fiero first hit the streets. Some Fiero owners eventually needed replacement coolant tubes. Many times the problem started at repair shops. They put the pads under these tubes and as the car was lifted it dented/crushed the long coolant tubes. So now this owner needs replacement coolant tubes. After they were no longer available from a GM dealer (if they ever were) one could only search for good used ones. Good used ones could be found but: They are too long to ship. The post office, Fed Ex or UPS would not ship them. Even Greyhound would not take them.
Another problem is corrosion under the clamps.
A big problem on the 84-87 was they go up and over the front suspension. Even if you put your 84-87 Fiero up on a rack it was still difficult to take the old tubes out and put new tubes in. One almost has to remove the front suspension.
I have had many ask me in the last 20+ years for replacement coolant tubes. I always told them the same thing. There are good used ones out there but they are too long to ship.
Fast forward to today and and you will see finding good used ones is now difficult.
Then one day I had an idea. I contacted a few Fiero people that have worked on/parted out Fieros for a long time and we talked about these long under car coolant tubes. They told me these tubes are generally never damaged where they bend inward behind the front wheels and go forward. The damage is always along the sides and back.
So I developed these repair kits. You cut your existing tube(s) and install this repair section.
Included in the kit is a 304 stainless steel sleeve. It has a small bump in the center so it only goes in half way in each tube. The kit includes a length of HD industrial hose, 304 stainless steel rivets and two HD stainless steel hose clamps.
These can ship postal, UPS or Fed Ex.
So this thorn in everyones side long coolant replacement tube problem is now a thing of the past!
They are made from 304 stainless steel.
Thru the years I've had many ask for replacements. My replacement tubes will now fill that need. Easy to install.
I will see how much demand there is for the 4 cylinder cars. I will work on the 4 cylinder tubes if I find anyone needing them. I had some short 5" stainless steel tubes made. Maybe one can use 2 common parts store rubber hoses to make these fit the 4 cylinder Fieros.
Email me if you need them. We can work on that. firstname.lastname@example.org

I do not offer free shipping.
Because I use postal flat rate boxes for heavy orders there is no program that can add the proper amount of shipping to every order. So all shipping is added manually by myself after you place your order. That is explained here: Shipping added later explanation
When you place an order the shipping amount will show $0.00. Soon after you place an order you will receive an email confirmation that shows the amount of shipping that was added to your order.
Shipping is ? (USA) Determined by: Size, weight and distance.
Final shipping cost is determined by weight of the item(s) and distance from Milwaukee, WI. Shipping prices quoted are for items shipped to the Midwest area in the USA. If you are ordering a single item or multiple items the total shipping price is determined after you place the order. I try to keep my shipping prices to a minimum and use Postal Flat Rate boxes whenever I can utilize them for an order.
