Can you describe how the car isn't running well? Is it idling rough, or getting bad gas mileage, or something else? Being a 93 it's an OBD 1 car (emissions standards) and the engine codes can help, but they're not extremely descriptive (not nearly as much as a 96 or newer car, which is OBD 2). If you have a shop with a scanner, they can scan the car and tell you the codes, and that'd help you with a starting point for troubleshooting. Also, take a look at www.dsm.org - it's an enthusiasts' site for Talons and Eclipses, and you may well find everything you need right there.

Car runs smooth, until I have to stop at red light or stop sign, then it runs rough. When I put it it neutral, it runs smooth. Could that be the EGR valve sticking? Any help would be appreciated, than


Depends on what you mean by rough. Could be a cylinder misfire.They sometimes are not noticed as engine speed increases during driving or under light load as when idling in neutral but at idle under load as when stopped at a light in drive became noticable.
Could also be running rich. The causes of either are too numurous to list.Consult a good mechanic who can actually see and hear the problem to put you on the right track.

I have a 1998 chevy malibu and the oil smells like gas


sounds like either you haven`t changed the oil in a long time or the motor is not running smooth,if the motor is not running smooth then it may need a tune-up.if the motor is running smooth then you may have a fuel injector that is dirty and allowing too much fuel into the combustion chamber and its not being completely burned of the injector is not closing all the way when it should be.another thing that can cause too much fuel is if the computer thinks the motor is to cold allowing more fuel.this can be caused by a low coolant level in the system,a bad thermostat not allowing the motor to get to proper operating temperature,a bad coolant temperature sensor(this usually sets a code and the check engine light comes on).

Check your throttle body gasket, if it's leaking unmetered air it will idle high, this coupled with a bad ignition coil, plugs not properly gapped or old/worn as well as old/worn spark plug wires will cause a misfire that may not trip the CEL light. Also check your idle air control valve to ensure it's working and clean on the inside of the throttle body.

Runs back in cold weather


Hello,
The most likely problem with your van, assuming that there is no check engine light being lit is that the small motor on the air intake manifold has stopped working . this will cause the motor to run badly when it is at idle forcing you to keep the gas pedal depressed to keep it running smoothly. This motor usually has only 2 screws securing it to the manifold so it is an easy fix.

Good luck!
