1985 pontiac fiero wont push start, any ideas/solutions?

Asked by Aug 30, 2016 at 02:51 PM about the 1985 Pontiac Fiero Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

i have a 1985 4 cylinder 5 speed 2.5 liter pontiac fiero, it wont start, it had a
bad starter, we decided it was the solenoid, but we havent replaced it yet, it
would sometimes not start after it was running and i would have to wait
about 30 minutes to an hour to start it again, the last time i tried to start it, it
had sat overnight, it wouldnt start, and we couldnt get it to push start, i was
told it should push start even if the starter is bad, which makes sense
considering we push started it multiple times when it had the bad solenoid,
any ideas what else could be wrong? and how to check/fix?
