Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I have a 1986 Fiero 2.8 V6 SE. It was driving/shifting fine. Then it started to underpowered in every gear, causing a shuttering noise until it accelerated past it. ....(more)

I put fluid in the transaxle, but now I have to practically put the pedal to the floor to get the thing to slowly roll in first gear...like a stripped clutch. Oh wise ones! I am a poor novice to the Fiero! Please HELP!

SOURCE: nissan clutch problem

If your not able to shift into any gear that means your clutch is not engage/disengaging. Check for fluid leaks, you said topped off and fluid levels were low? It sounds like you have a Slave cylinder or master cylinder leak, if its leaking its bet to replace both.

Is it possible that the sound is happening every time you hit 14 mph after a fresh start? The TC does a ABS check 14 mph that runs the pump for a second.

SOURCE: 2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec-V clutch sticking and hard shifting

I am dealing with a very similar issue on my 03 Spec V , So far i noticed the clevis pin was loose and the locking hitch pin that slips thru it had fallen out . this caused the gears to not wanna engage due to the bolt behind the clevis which runs to the master cylinder was not getting pressed in when i pushed the clutch pedal in because the clevis pin was slippin on n off giving me no pressure up top .. I had to remove my lower dash panel in order to get visual n hand access to this pin , it is a tight spot to work in as well . May be easist to remove the 4 14mm bolts that hold yur driver seat in to give ya more room to work n stretch out ur arms

FIERO GT V6 THE MANIFOKL IS GETING RED AFTER START THE ENGINE, WHAT I HAVE TO DO?


That is usually caused by a plugged exhaust system. Either the converter / pre-converter or muffler is plugged. Also check to make sure EGR valve is working properly

Ok my 1986 Fiero 2m4 wont come out of reverse it was hard 2 shift gears all day yesterday until about 4 o clock now the transmission shifter just moves around freely but like i said its stuck in reverse...


Manual or auto?

It's gotta be the cable/linkage. You just have to inspect them and see if something is worn or snapped. They get old and crusty and need to be replaced eventually. I had to replace my shift cable on my 86 se with the 5-speed getrag.

Hopefully it's not the actual tranny....?

My 86 Fiero SE clutch master cylinder is weeping


Replace it. Not a difficult job. Be careful the bracket on the V6 4spd. isn't strong so don't break it while loosening the slave cylinder retaining nuts.

Good luck,

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.

who do i contact to sue gm? after the n.h.t,s.a told gm on 5-23-73 to recall all 1993 saturns gm refused 29 days later i was in a accident that the n.h.t.s.a wanted recalled for a serious saftey problem i suffered a permanent tramatic brain injury and i wrote a letter to mary barra gmsc-e-o.she handed my letter to a jeffery koppy gms lead counsel who replied by a letter to me that was the old gm and because we filled bankruptcy in 2009 the new gmis not taking any futher action in regards to your letter.it took the feds to get gm to finally get the car recalled on 8-10 93 while i was still in the hospital.it gets worst i was a employee for gm at the time.because of my head injury i can't ever work again. i still had 17 years to work for gm and to get my 30 years to retire which was to be may of 2010.instead i had to retire a little after the accident.the day after accident iwas supposed to sign my transfer papers to another gm plant in michigan i was employed at their wentzville mo. plant because i was in a coma for 3 weeks and in the hospital 3 months that transfer never happened and the house we had at the time of accident was all ready sold. we had to get a lawyer so we could remain there. because my one car accident happened so close to where we lived.it happened on the i-70 expressway in warren county in the city of warrenton mo. all our neighbors knew about it. i was told by my doctors to try and do phyical therapy as much as possible.so my wife took me for a walk almost every day.but all our neighbors knew of what happened to me they just staired at me every day.it made me feel like a freak.so we sold the house and moved to the country.and if all that wasn't bad enough when my youngest daughter finished nursing school she asked me if i would co sign a loan for her in 2002 for a new car i still got my gm discount and because my brain wasn't right i told her to go to the gm dealer in the city i lived in because the sales-man was a very good man. and over the years we bought new cars from him i felt we were good friends.the car my daughter bought was a lemon from the time she bought it.it had nothing to do with the salesman or dealer. it was a 2002 chevy malibu.well one day she gave a friend a ride home and as she pulled into friends driveway the ignition just turned off.like it did to those 124 people who died because of a problem gm knew about for a long time. my daughters ignition failed in 2004 so she had the car towed to the closest dealer .they said the ignition was bad and said she needed a new one so she told them to go go ahead a replace it even gm had long knew of the problem she had to pay to get it replaced.then if you's can believe this about 10 years later i think it was 2013 or 2014 she got a recall letter telling her that the gm dealer put in another bad ignition.try keep sending her recall letters.but with gm almost killing her dad plus alot of other people wih cars with bad ignitions. she said theres no way gm will tought her car as usual it wasn't running any ways.so it just sat there and she got tired of looking at it and she just called the junk yard i forget how much she got but said she was just glad it was gone and could never hurt anybody ever again.but i'm not dead yet and i still want gm to pay me for what they did to me.as far as i'm concerned gm should be forced to stop making cars.think of all those children who lost their mother or another family member because of gm.i guess so many companys are out for the most money than can make their using defective parts. before i sign off i would like to say the plant i worked at in wentzville mo.had the most inspectors and process assurance inspectors that it almost impossible for something to slip by.i can see if a car rolls out missing a nut or bolt from time to time but there is no reason anything saftey related to ever be missed,from what i found out about the saturn car that almost killed me the bad positive battery cable that shorted out every thing in the car like air bags and abs brakes with no air bags to deploy thats why i was ejected head first out thru the front windshield.i'll bet it hurt alot but doctors said i was knocked out instantly.BUT just because i was in a coma my wife who is a nurse said i was thrashing around moaning that they kept giving me alot of morphine shots.so i'm very tired now using one finger to type on computer.so before yous buy a new car make damn sure there aren't any recalls on it jay teffer signing off.watch what car you decide to buy!!!!!!!!!
