Did you check your fluid level? My 86 started doing the same thing not going into first gear. The master cylinder was leaking. Replaced the master cylinder bled the clutch no more problem.

Yes it could be a master cyl,but the main shifting culprit is always the Fiero clutch slave cylinder,
you can try V8 archie bleed process to restore some push,, just go to V8 archie site
replace the slave cylinder single seal piston with a dual seal piston,,order one from Rodney Dickman
no matter what the problem is ,because the slave clylinder is a notorious Fiero weak spot
the slave piston seal is about $20.oo
inspect the old slave cyl. for imperfections & pits ,you can hone it lightly with a rag with wet sand paper around it .
as most people do not have a small hone,,a brake hone cost about $18 to $25
the dual seal piston will over come minor imperfections that the single seal piston will not
every Fiero should have a dual seal clutch slave piston ,,or replace with one of Rodney Dickman new clutch slave cylinder
