Which fiero do you have? Will it not even grind gears? If it grinds but won't engage, check clutch fluid. The fiero has a hydraulic clutch that can be kind of a pain. Mine just had an issue with that and reverse can be easier to engage than the other gears, especially since mine at least seems to have a lockout on the lower gears. If it won't even grind, grab a buddy and have him move the shiftter around and see what happens on the other end of the cables. Make sure the shift and select arms are moving properly. If not, might be bad shift or select are or bad cables.

sounds like a clutch problem, could have a leak in either clutch master/ slave cylinder or the line, or broken clutch plate
