Emailed a guy about buying/trading for his fiero. This is the response I got for problems.

The coolant fan has to be turned on with ac its over heating for some reason not sure y.
The battery dies fast not sure If its the battery itself or something else.
The key broke in the driver door
It still opens with broken key
Um there some tree stuff that got in the engine n almost caught on fire just needs cleaning .
Otherwise ran great till the overheat problem
As some aftermarket parts like clutch and rims the engine was partly rebuilt.
It just needs some tlc

Its an 85 4 speed 2.8, what's it worth if this is all that's wrong? And where do I check for rust?

Look at it from a worse-case view.
The overheating is likely not a major problem. Thing is though, how often did he let overheat and for how long and how hot did it get? Could have negated some that recent rebuild.
Battery could be bad as well as the alternator.
Broken key not costly just PIA to get out.
I would pass on it unless it's dirt cheep/

Run away from 3k with the big list of unknowns. Just IMO. Could build one for not much more than that.

-Tree stuff in the engine
-Caught fire
-Overheated many times
-Bad alternator, probably battery
-Door locks need replacing
-Wisconsin car = probably rusty

RUN. If you feel lucky and don't mind replacing the engine yourself, $300.00 tops
