Question about Eagle Talon

Open Question

Clutch does not fully disengage

I am working on a 1993 Eagle Talon AWD with a new (1000 miles stage 3 center sprung 6 puck clutch). I also replaced the clutch slave cylindr. After intitial installation the clutch worked fine and released properly. At about 1000 miles the bolts holding the transmission and engine together worked loose and the clutch would not fully disengage. After tightening the bolts the clutch still would not fully disengage. I noticed a faint leak at the clutch master cylinder, so I replaced it and blead it one three different occasions. It was better, but still would not fully disengage. I added a cap 3 mm thick to the end of the slave cylinder rod, but the clutch still would not fully disengage. I also measured the clutch pedal height at 7 inches even and set the freeplay at the pin at 1 mm, both are at ideal factory specs. I have since removed the transmission and do not see anything wrong with the clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing, fulcrum, or fulcrum ball. What else can I try? Tom

    Yes the flywheel was resurfaced, however the clutch disengaged well off the floor when initiaally installed. I'll pull it and have it checked for height and the difference between the overall thickness and the clutch plate surface. I have seen this once berore when more material was removed from the clutch surface than the pressure plate mounting surface, I don't think this is the problem, but I'll have it checked today. I believe the old pressure plate has been discarded. I'll check to see if I have another one in the shop and measure the installed height of both. Thanks, Tom

SOURCE: my eagle talon will not start

Search for a way to reset the alarm. Also take the fuel lines off the engine and test the fuel pressure. You want to eliminate the fuel pump not working. If it has a reset button for the fuel pump try that. I would start at the fuel pump and worlk my way up.

You did not specify if its petrol or Diesel I am assuming it is diesel. It might be the glow plugs. Get them checked as you will need these to get it started. If its petrol its a different issue. It might be the ignition coil (no spark) coming to the distributor. Whichever the type of car make sure that there is fuel coming to the engine. In the case of diesel you should have a primer rubber fuel pump which you press in order to bring fuel to the engine.

Hope this was of help to you :)

sounds like your clutch if not hydrolic needs a little adjustment or the syncronizer is going bad.. look for a cable when someone depresses the clutch where it attaches to the side of the tranny usually if adjustable the bolt is a 10 mm or 12 mm need usually a pair of pliars and a wrench.,..good luck;/

Nothing happens when key is turned and clutch is down, no clicking, no lights, battery is fully charged and terminals are tight. 1994 eagle talon fwd 5 speed 1.8L

Sounds to me like the ignition module went out. I would test the ignition module, then I would test the clutch safety switch. If these test out fine I would test the starter and replace it if it is suspected to be bad.

No lights really seems like the battery might be dead, or a fuse is blown. Check the main and alt. fuses.

fill your clutch fluid, it tells you what kind of brake fluid to use on the cap, and then bleed your clutch system as you would your brakes, the bleeder is located on the slave cylinder i believe
