This is a shot in the dark . Check the inlet rubber pipe that goes from the air cleaner assembly to the throttle body. Some times they will crack and or collapse when the engine torques one way and run fine when torqed the other way. It actually will create and remove a very large vacuum leak. I have experienced this on two vehicles a Nissan Sentra and a 86 Toyota 4x4. Not on your specific vehicle but it's very possible thats the problem.

Why does my 1992 eagle talon die and not keep idle?

Engine stall or RPM fluctuates at idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

I have a 1991 talon eagle turns over when the gas is to the floor and wont say idling also when driving and coming to a stop it dies whats wrong

you could have a high fuel pressure problem and when holding the throttle all the way to the floor you put the system in flood mode which shuts off the injectors to burn off excess fuel in the engine.and when you release the throttle the system returns to normal.when driving you could be using the fuel that is being over supplied at the speed your driving.also the egr valve could be stuck open causing the engine to stall at idle.something to check out.

Just had my ac compressor change on my 94 eagle talon dl 1.8 and when I got home I notice my engine idles at 1500, what is wrong?

When the AC compressor is engaged it should automatically idle up the engine to compensate for the heavier load. As long as it doesn't overheat, it could be how it will be, with the different AC compressor.

My 1996 eagle talon tsi (just bought) idles rough but when I drive its smooth, no rough idle. I need to know what is wrong with it and how to fix it

It may be a dirty air cleaner or a dirty Idle Airflow Valve . The IAC can be cleaned by taking off the duct work that goes from the air assembly to the fuel injector hole. The valve is to one of the sides of the hole just inside. You will see two small holes. Buy some card cleaner and with your engine running at about 1300 rpm spray the cleaner directly into these holes. Spray for a good 10 seconds. Stop the engine and let the cleaner soak in. Repeat this about 4 times. If it still idles rough it may be the Idle position sensor or you have to replace the IAC.

I just bought a 1992 eagle talon and one of the belts is making a high pitched squeeking sometimes until the car warms up or if I cycle the gears a few times. THe belt looks fine, no frays or anything....

As for the high pitched squeeking. Just replace the serpentine belt. Just because you don't notice any crack or no frays, does not mean that the belt is good. My car was doing the same thing and when I replaced the belt everything was fine.

In regards to jumping when shifting. First take a look at the RPM's. If the RPM's are high when shifting from Drive to Reverse this will cause the jumping. If the RPM's are around 750 to 850 then you might have to get the transmission checked out.

Hopfully this will get you going in the right direction. Good luck...

I have a 92 eagle talon tsi awd question is when i start my car it idles high then drops down then goes up and its driving me i was told to fix the speed control sensor or the throttle...

yeah, eclipse/talon does have alot of problems with the IAC motor being no good, but by your description, it sound more like a vacuum leak, to trace for a vacuum leak isn't fun, check all your vac hoses for cracks just being so old, anything could happen, make sure your intake manifold is not leaking, that's what happened to mine, or the easiest way is to take the car to a shop that has a "smoke machine"
what it does is put smoke into you intake manifold, where ever there is a leak, the smoke will finds it way out, make it alot easy to find vac leaks

1993 eagle talon with 2L non torbo rough idling

This is a two part problems.

Part 1

Intake manifold and vacuum lines leak. It will take time to locate.
Carb, cleaner trick can save you 1/2 the time.

Part 2

Air intake tube leak.
It's easier to fix.

Locate air flow sensor.

Your problem can be the plastic tube between air flow sensor and engine intake opening.

The ECU computer read the air temp and density but the leaky tube ADDED more air and colder temp air into the engine.

WRONG data to ECU!

Seal the tube then take on the vacuum when you have time.

MAP and TPS can also be at fault.
