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.

2G BISS Adjustment (Base Idle Speed Screw)

Also check the ISC (Idle Speed Control Servo), these are notorious for causing bad idling. You do not want to spray carb cleaner, through the throttle body holes, into the ISC. It will destroy it. If you are cleaning the ports (holes) in the throttle body take the ISC off, as to not damage it.

Starter location on a 1996 eagle talon tsi awd


Should be on the front top area of the transmission where it connects to the motor. Should be easy to reach but you probably overlooked it because that area gets very dirty.

I have a 92 eagle talon tsi awd turbo.my question is when i start my car it idles high then drops down then goes up and its driving me crazy.now 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.

1993 Eagle Talon Tsi starts rough then dies off, bad timing?


First thing you can do to try a simple fix is replace each spark plug, check each plug for signs of fuel/air mixture

if your plug is black is rich, if ur plug is white is lean.

in this case repost your findings. in the mean time if they look golden or light brown, replace them and make sure they are gapped to ur level of psi you are running.

you can find the gap specs for how much boost you are running on most DSM websites or by searching.
