Question about 1991 Eagle Talon

91 eagle Talon won't start

It looks like many of you are having the same problems with your Eagles as myself. It ran fine, then started surging and loosing power as I was driving. Some days it would turn but not actually start. As it was used as a second car, we left it in the driveway until we had money to fix it.....well it sat for a year. I replaced the battery, it would turn over, but not start later the day when I had it towed to the mechanic. Needless to say, no one can figure out what's wrong....

    I had the same problem. Twice. My ISC went bad, shorted out and spiked the drivers on the ECM board. First time, I had the IC drivers on the ECM board replaced, then got stupid and installed a used ISC (Idle Speed Controller). 6 months later same thing happened. ECM board was nonrepairabe, had to find a used one and have it rebuilt, and put in a NEW ISC. Solved the problem.

    I have the same problem. I bought a new head for my car that Came complete with cams. My first cylinder head was warped but my car still ran So I change the head an put a new head gasket an I have Apr head studs went to go fire it up an I got nothing. It just rolls. I've checked everything I got spark. Fuel. Fuel injectors are opening. Good compretion. Great timing. Each valve is opening. Everything is doing its job but wont start. Only thing I changed was the head. Its a turbod head on a Turbo block. I'm thinking the came are different but not sure anything will help. Please contact me at mikehuffman@yahoo.com thanks

Would suggest checking the timing of your wires. If they are not in the correct order it might fire here and there but not start or it may not start at all.

The firing order across the cylinders left to right is 4,3,2,1 if you are standing at the front of the car. The timing on the distributor cap is 4,1,2,3.

95 eagle talon - Runs fine when cold, terrible when warmed up


When I was building my 97 GSX, I ran into this same problem. I found that I had a bad vacuum leak. Of course, this was after I had done a tune up, changed the fuel pump, injectors, etc.

Let it warm up without driving. Set you idle a little higher by adjusting the idle screw on the throttle body to about 2500 or so. If it does the same while sitting then you can start checking for leaks. Acquire a can of starter fluid from your local auto store. Spray in different areas, short burst (DO NOT blanket the engine area) around the engine compartment, 1 at a time. If the idle changes then returns that is the rough area of the leak. Look around that area and see what it could be. Then you can start fixing the problem.

If not then you will need to get a vacuum tester. You can rent them (Autozone, Advance Auto, NAPA) or find a shop (though that would cost you more) that could check it for you.Follow the directions on the tester.
