You can also check your cold start injector sensor. Over the years the connector dries out and becomes brittle and can cause a loose connection. Try pressing the connector down onto the sensor and see if the car starts. It is located on the top right hand side of the engine right behind the thermastat housing and right under all of the plastic vacum hoses. There are 2 sensors there. One is the cold start injector sensor and the other is the temp fan switch sensor. If the connector or sensor is not working properly it could give the ECM bad mixture ratios or cause it not to start at all. Check it out and let us know. Fiero's ROCK!
