Question about 1997 Eagle Talon

1997 eagle talon tsi

I just bought a talon tsi that the owner said was just a blown headgasket and the battery was dead.so i checked the oil and there didnt seem 2 be any anti freeze.the car will not start or even turnover at all when i press the clutch in and turn the key NOTHING! not even the clicking noise from the starter. i put a battery that was new from my toyota celica(90) in there and only the headlights and brake lights came on but the lights will only work when you put the brights on. but when i do that the horn will automatically go off so i took out the fuse for that. i think the head might be cracked because the owner said that some oil did come out on the left side of the engine bay...plzzz i really need help on how to diagnose the problem any 1 with an answer is greatly appreciated...

I think the only thing you can really do to find out what the problem is, is to rip a part the block and look inside.

Oil from turbo or not


Have someone do a compression check to check if your valves or rings are worn, and check your spark plugs for oil or signs of burning oil. Check oil pan, oil filter, valve cover, and rear main seal for any leaks and repair as necessary.

How to fix an oil leak on a 93 tsi i cant tell if the turbo or somewhere else how do you cheack if the headgasket is bad because it smokes


there is only one way to track down an oil leak, you must pressure wash the engine top and bottom, then you drive it a day or so and look under the engine and on top for the source of the leak, common area's to leak are oil pressure sending units, valve covers, oil pans, rear main seal of crank shaft and front cover seal of engine.

1997 Eagle Talon TSI AWD oil pressure goes from zero to normal and back


Te 1st thing to do is replace the oil pressure guage sending unit, most times that is the problem, if press remains low use a mechanical test guage to verify what the oil pressure is, hook this tester up at the port the sending unit is screwed into.
