When I crank my car my idol goes above 2 and then falls down below 1 and then it does a couple of times and then it dies sometimes. when I'm driving & stop and then go it sputter & idol does again

Try changing the tpi throttle positioning sensor found on the throttle body . Check air filter, clean air mass flow sensor.located sometimes in air box ,or after going in throttle body black hose, going in air box usually found in those two spots. If no change. Then I would check o2sensor start whith the cheapest first.
air box / hose going to motor look for a set of wires
unplug wires and pull out clean or replace. Spray whith brake cleaner starter fluid or similar.
Tpi throttle posistioning sensor.
last but least
o2sensor sensor.

Hard starting sometimes.have to spray starting fluid in throttle plate to start

If the pump relay is working and the pump runs when you turn the key on, it could be the check valve in the pump. The valve could be allowing fuel pressure to drain back into the tank when the engine is off.

I suspect you have a failing electric fuel pump inside the fuel tank. To confirm this is the problem get a can of spray starting fluid from the auto parts store, when you experience the next no start spray the starting fluid into the air intake hose to the engine while a friend cranks it over with the starter, if it starts right up you likely have a defective fuel pump.

My 95 eagle talon tsi will turn over but won't start were should I start?

Start with a can of starter fluid. You will probably need to take the air intake hose off to get to the throttle body. Spray the fluid in and see if it will take.If it wants to start once you done that; it is fuel related and will need to consider the fuel pump. If it doesn't you will need to get a spark tester to see if you are getting any spark. If you aren't you will need to see why...check for codes they can help if it is spark related. If it is fuel related, the starter fluid is one of your best tests.

Mass air meter not reading vane postion

hey rob_andersen,

yes their is a way to replace the mass air flow. Get a can of brake clean or throttle cleaner, throttle cleaner is going to work best. remove the until and spray it down with throttle clean, let it dry for about 15 min. and reinstall it.

Now a little warning for you, IF their is no visual damage to the mass air flow then you can do this successfully. Now the reason why I always replace them instead of spraying them down is because is MOST cases the mass air flow will start acting up again. Sometimes it takes a weeks, sometimes months, sometimes years its hard to say.

But the worst you have to loose, is it doenst work an your out 5 bucks for the can of fluid.
