You may be suffering from a clogged catalytic convertor judging by what you say about the power loss and the emissions failure. If you have access to a scanner you can diagnose this theory. Also see what gear it says you are in when the vehicle is placed in drive. There is a rev limiter when the vehicle is in Park and Neutral but the limit is a little higher than 2,000RPM.

I would lean toward the exhaust issue first. There are many other things that can cause this problem but without addition data from the car, it is virtually impossible to say which ones. DO NOT GO OUT AND BUY PARTS until you know exactly what the problem is.

    I believe my original solution was meant for another vehicle. I apologize for sending you on a wild goose chase. When you shorted the battery the main fuses on the cable blew, correct? I want you to check the battery voltage at the battery terminals while the vehicle is running. A simple multi-meter placed on DC scale to 15 volts will work find. If you can perform this task, the battery voltage while the car is running has to be at least 13 1/2 volts. Let me know. DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING UNTIL YOU ARE SURE OF THE DEFECTIVE PART!! Yes you may get lucky the first time but yes, you may not and begin the money pit/marriage phenomena.

I think your output shaft speed sensor is bad. It would explain why it only acts up when it rolls more than 1 mph. They're only about $20-$25 and not very hard to change.

93 talon tsi getting fuel and spark car cranks but wont start

I would try making sure spark plug wires are put on in the correct firing order. This is a common mistake in tune ups. Most intake manifolds have the firinging order cast in. Plug gaps correct? I cant come too far away.

My 1990 plymouth laser rs 2.0 liter turbo will start but dies if im not on the gas if i stay on the gas i can drive it but its slow to get up

This could be any number of things unfortunatley. I'd start with fuel pressure. Check the pressure. It could possibly be your fuel pressure regulator.

92 plymouth laser rs turbo when i come off clutch in first gear car shakes or stutters problem comin out of first

Your driving a '94 laser... thats definately a large portion of your problem. I would take it to a salvage yard, part it out, or sell it for scrap. Then take that money, invest in a huffy bicycle and the only problems you should ever encounter is the tires going flat or the seat being a pain in your rear parts.

Doesn't seem to have spark?? did you use a tester?? basic needs, spark tester(in line works best) fuel pressure guage, injector signal tester(noid light) and finally compression guage, rad tester optional, check spark and injector signal, the remove spark plugs and note their color, do a compression test, all cylinders should read within 10 percent, lo compression on one or two indicate head gasket, no compression timing belt, have fun
