1985 fiero been having problems getting in gear. Now wont turn over starter. New starter didnt fix problem. Dont know if 2 problems are related. Can push start.
Have same car, same problems, easy solutions.
Getting into gear has been improved by putting in neutral with engine running to warm up fluid. The Fiero has very little room in the pedal area. I'm shifting a lot better with smaller shoes.
The problem with starting may well be related to the same issue. There is a neutral safety starting switch. If you're not pressing hard enough on the clutch - starter won't run. According to the Fierostore.com stock clutch pedals tend to bend. They sell a stronger replacement.
My Fiero has been starting just fine the last few days. The last time it didn't I was wearing boots.
I've almost always been able to get it to start using a booster battery, but Walmart's tester indicates that the battery and charging system are fine. It recommends tightening connections. I did this, but still had problems for a while.
