Question about 1991 Eagle Talon

2 Answers

Non turbo Eagle talon- Engine rotates but won't start.

I just bought this car a few months ago. The guy used to drive it everyday but then bought a mustang so its been sitting in his shop for the past 4 years WITHOUT being started. The gas or oil wasn't drained either. Well the engine rotates and every now and then almost fires but I haven't seen it run yet. Any help??

    So I tried starting fluid today and it almost fired. It's the best attempt iv seen yet, but it just wouldn't start. Is my only other option to pull the heads off??

You have build up on the top of the cylnders try a small shot of starting fluid to start if it starts put fuel cleaner and fill whith high octane gas and octane booster for 2 tanks of gas if this doesnt work you have to pull the heads off and clean the cylnders 1 at a time...

I want to supercharge a eagle talon

No point in doing and would be very expensive.

Superchargers are mainly used on higher powered engines and not 4 cylinders.

Talons are more of a high revving car and why a turbo is best suited. 

You will be better off upgrading components for more power and performance than waste time with a supercharger. 

If you have a non turbo then make sure you have a good engine, trans and frame before you do anything and really better off buying a TSI AWD factory made and the modify.

No power

If the check engine light is on,have it scanned for trouble codes.Diagnose and repair any codes.I have a car very very similar to yours with 188k miles,great car,runs drives great,good mileage,heat,a/c paint,everything,just no power.2.0 ltr sohc,,non turbo,they just weren't very powerful in those days.Mine has new timing belts too,and no diff in the performance before or after.Maybe a true cold air intake might help power a little.Also have the catalytic convertor checked for adequate flow as over the years they can restrict flow a little at a time and dwindle power output.
