Question about 1991 Eagle Talon

91 eagle talon problem

My 91 eagle talon is having some problems. The problem occurs mainly when I am trying to accelerate, primarily when I need to accelerate quickly, like when pulling out onto a highway. When I accelerate the car will start to go, but then my rpms and boost gauge will drop dramatically and the car will **** as if I smashed the brakes. Also, when the car is in 4th gear it seems to not want to shift down. I can floor it, and the car will remain in 4th as opposed to shifting down. The jerking of the car happens frequently even if I am accelerating slowly. Any ideas?

    I have a 1991 Eagle Talon TSI. When I accelerate, the rpm's and the boost gauge will sometimes drop dramatically and the entire car will shake as if I am applying the brakes. Also, it will not shift down into a lower gear when I press the accelerator down. I will be in 4th gear and I can put the pedal to the floor and it will not shift down, but rather do what I just described above and stutter. Also, the rpm's will shoot up and the car will not accelerate while I am driving normally as if the car slipped into neutral. It will stop once I let off the gas. The gas tank was rusted inside, so I just recently had that replaced along with the injectors, fuel pump, and fuel filter. Any ideas what might be the problem?

    I would still check the fuel filter again. don't assume that the rust was all cleaned out, also if this rusty gas got to the injectors they are ruined and must be replaced

The shudder you are experiencing with your 91 Eagle Talon tsi when excelerating or cruising speeds is most probably due to a bad TPS - Throttle Positon Switch, sometimes referred to as a throttle perteniometer. It is located on the front of the throttle body assembly.

HAS THE FUEL FILTER BEEN REPLACED RECENTLY? SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE LOW FUEL PRESSURE FROM THE SYMPTOMS, THEY ALL FIT LOW FUEL PRESSURE.

Sounds like the high speed jet in the caburator is fouling,, service the carburator using a kit deigned for your car,,, the kit contains all the replacement parts for the carb..

    This cannot be the case, because I am fairly certain the car does not have a carburetor. It has fuel injection.

    oh I am terrebly sorry,, check your injectos and ensure that they are clean.. check your coil pack chances are one of them needs changing.
