Sounds like either bad fuel pump or bad plugs " also could be the ignition coil "
take the plugs out, if they are dirty, oily or wet, that's the problem, if they are ok just little burnt then is probably your pump or coil.
let me know status of plugs to further diagnose.

Firing Order for 85 Fiero GT 2.8L


The firing order is 1-2-3-4-5-6. The odd numbers are front to back on the left of the fan and the even ones on the right side of the fan. The distributor turns clockwise and #1 is at the 5 o'clock position. Hope this helps.

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.

Engine turns off when coming to a stop


I have used this procedure for years.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
