Hi I have an 85 fiero gt and when shifting through my four gears its smooth and perfect. When I go into reverse however there is a high pitched grinding noise before it pops in. Any ideas?

Check clutch fluid level its good, this is when car is warm or cold doesn't Matter.

leave the clutch in, put it in 2nd before attempting to go into reverse. This will help stop everything from moving. I assume a 4spd?

No, do this all while the clutch is held in. Does not fix the issue at hand mind you, but eliminates all the symptoms, and does not cause any further excess wear. Does not make you look like an idiot in the parking lot trying to back up your car. I've been using this trick for years. Only way I know of ultimately fixing it is to replace the transmission. In my eyes it is not needed. Nothing bad will come of putting it in second every time before reverse.

Also, make sure the car is completely stopped before shifting into Reverse. The Reverse gear doesn't have a synchronizer.
