Question about 1991 Eagle Talon
I have 92 eagle talon tsi/ turboed thats hard to start all around starts when cold but takes a few but when warm the only way to get it to start is too unplug the airflow sensor then it will start. i got the car with a blown headgasket i replaced that and the head bolts alonge with the isc motor and a new turbo also i have verified timing placement on the gears and belt along with that i checked the vacume pressure at the line that comes from the blowoff valve it was very low around 12 i believe im thinking that one of my temp sensors are out it has no resistance but would that make it nearly impossible to start warm note to that i let it sit for 10-15 min i can start it with the airflow unpluged but if i try right after i shut down it wont everstop i have also checked for vacume leaks with starting fluid and no leaks found so far thanks in advance for your assistance any ideas would be greatly appreated
Just an idea, but I think that you are onto something with the temperature sensor. If overheating was the cause of the head gasket to go, then I would imagine it would've fried the temperature sensor also. That would make it nearly impossible to start. The sensor should be fairly cheap enough to replace. Probably wouldn't even through out a code. My Mother-in-Law had the same problem with her Saturn, changed the temp. sensor and BINGO. No more problem. You just have to make sure you get the computer temperature sensor, not the fan temp. sensor. There are 2 of them suckers. Believe it or not. Hope this can help "with your idea". Best wishes.
