Yesterday I purchased a '87 Fiero GT with 117000km. Looked like it was in great shape, everything checked out. Guy said it was a little stiff going into third gear. Test drove it and yeah, it was a little stiff in third but that was it.

Bought it and took it home. On the way home it started making grinding noises into some of the gears. By the time I got it home it got so bad that I knew this would have to be taken care of before I could drive the car. It sounds almost as if someone wasn't pushing the clutch all the way to the floor while trying to shift.

I just bled the clutch and it did not fix the problem. What gives? I know nothing about Fieros. With such low km I was hoping for very few problems.

do some searching, the clutch is very pesky, im battling mine aswell. Check to see if the clutch pedal is bent, not the actual pedal but the bracket on top. Google image search it and it will make more sense

Most likley a failing master cylinder or slave cylinder. Is there a leak of fluid? Even if not air could be getting in the system making it weak. The air can be bled out but if those parts are leaking air in they would need replaced.
