 if the key will insert into the lock properly &  seems to work normally,yet will not release, not pop the trunk
 the best antidote,especially if the key looks worn, is to have a new key made ,after work stop at home depot have one made ,
fortunately a new lock is not expensive from fiero store or other source
  does it have electronic opener ?? if it does not work often the fuse is removed because there are battery draining  lights connected to the popper.located to the right of the steering wheel

exterior looks good ,wish my car look that good

Drilling complete - Deck lid open
-- Cause - Deck lid was cattywampus
-- Corrective action - Adjusted deck lid
-- To be repaired- Lock cylinder

Heater hose leak
-- Cause - Hose rubbing against dog bone bracket and trunk wall
-- Corrective action - Replaced hose and added additional shielding
-- To be repaired - Remove them unneeded hoses

Items of interest
01 Power steering pump still on motor and in belt system  :confused:
02 Shifting requires a lot of arm effort
03 E brake inop
04 AC not blowing cold
05 Passenger side headlight motor inop
06 No dash lights
07 Left and right mirrors require adjustment - possible replacement
08 Service engine light intermittent
09 Tach requires trace cut and 280k resistor
10 All carpets require removal and cleaning
11 Seats need reupholstering
12 Rear bumper Pontiac emblem MIA
13 Miscellaneous interior items
This list will continue to grow I'm sure  wink

I really do love this car tho  :thumbsup:
I hope to be driving it to our next meeting

     I have MR2 double seal for 4 speed manual ,this also fits other clutch slave not sure if it will work on 5 speed ..I also have the proper quality hone to hone & clean up the slave.
     the slave is a pain to bleed , install of proper dual seal slave piston fixes 90 % of shift problems
    also you need to ajust the shifter this is where you use a nail or drill to align the shifter
     while you are in their add light grease actual shift mechcanism,you do not have to remove,just pull it out a small amount & apply grease .
     It is a real pain in the catty wampus to try to bleed the single seal piston
     Rodney has the dual seal clutch slave piston, the dual seal piston work so good it is like a belt fed FN machine gun pure ecstacy
    happiness is a belt fed weapon

    As for the shift issue, I am not against the whole master/slave restoration but this thing is hard to move around period

    Example: Car is off and in neutral - Side to side movement is to stiff (resistance seems to high to me) and the gate seems too tight

    Papy, congrats on the new car smile

    As for the hard shifter on the movement from side to side,
    it would be one of the transmission cables, check Rodney Dickman's site.
    I would tell you which cable controls the side to side movement.

    I would rebuild the shifter assembly w/ the kit that Rodney sells, it improves the way the shifter feels, it makes it more precise.

    Looking forward to seing the car  :thumbsup:

    Side to side is controlled by the SELECT cable. Rodney has the best ones available.

    As for the tight gates, is it a short shifter. There was one on mine when I first got it and I hated it. I swapped the stock one from a car I was selling and was happy to be rid of the "upgrade" when it went away with the other car.

    I believe it is the rodney dickman cables & short shifter

    It is the Isuzu 5 speed also

    Thanks for the info guys  biggrin
    If it fits that would be cool Frank
