My problems keep stacking up and I don't have the time nor resources to fix them myself. I am looking for a shop near Dayton, OH and I want to know if anyone owns/ knows a good shop that will be able to get rid of my problems/ prevent some future problems. I am willing to travel pretty far for a good shop so if you know anyone please hook me up.

For reference, my known problems include:
-very little pressure in clutch
-major exhaust leak
-poorly routed vacuum lines
-not wanting to go all the way into some gears
-(probably more that I'm forgetting, plus whatever may break with time)

I wish I was able to do some of this myself, but college keeps me away from tools and a place to work (my lack of experience doesn't help either though)

Edit: I suppose it should be important to mention that I have about $1500 to get every little kink worked out.

What does that mean? Very little grip... or very little releasing?

Might also try a note (PM) to 94blackbird.

He was doing work for Fiero people last year, and he is in Painsville.

Not sure of his schedule now, but worth a few minutes to find out.

HAGO!

The clutch isn't building enough pressure to release. I've tried bleeding it and still nothing. It's just enough to make the slave cylinder move a little bit.

I live in Dayton and I would probably take my car 200 miles if someone knew of a good Fiero shop. Best bet for clutch bleeding problems is to start out with Rodney Dickman's slave cylinder. http://rodneydickman.com/ca...cf5ba4f09fecf5c68b2d Not hard to install and can save many hours of head scratching. The one I just replaced was an aftermarket one that was only about 2 years old, so some of them can turn to crap very quickly.
It is possible that I could be persuaded to give you a hand with that problem. Of course at no charge and its not too cold out at the time. That's if you can trust someone that goes by Imnuts.

You know, if you have a good place to work and knowledge on Fieros, I'll treat you to lunch at least for that. But, if you truly feel up to help, I would greatly appreciate it.

I just moved out of a house with a large 4 car heated garage and now my car is kept at a storage facility, so I do not have a place to work on cars. It will have to be done at your parents’ home or somewhere else. Actually a sloped driveway could be the ideal spot to bleed a clutch if the weather is nice.
I am on my 2nd Fiero, had my engine out 3 times and installed 3 new slave cylinders. This just means I am now just starting to know when a slave cylinder acts a certain way whether it need replaced or not and figured out my best way of bleeding the air out of it.
I live north of Dayton in Vandalia, hopefully close by and yes if we could find a convent time I can help. I will send you a private message with my phone #.
