Question about Eagle Talon

3 Answers

Why does my 91 eagle talon idle up and down when in neutral? Have replaced the idle air control and mass air flow. Cleaned throttle body and sensors, but can't find the thermo valve anywhere. Also, all of my instrument cluster lights went out at the same time, why? Please help I'm tired of dumping money into it and not fixing the problem.

    When I first start it up the car has to warm up before I can drive it anywhere. When I press the gas after I first start it the car nearly dies, but only when I press the gas. Could this have anything to do with my fuel pump or fuel filter? The car sat for a while but now it's the only one I have. Why can't I find the thermo valve and the vacuum schematics for my car show one, can anyone help please? Thanks,
    Brandon

Hi. Re:"When I first start it up the car has to warm up before I can drive it anywhere. When I press the gas after I first start it the car nearly dies, but only when I press the gas. Could this have anything to do with my fuel pump or fuel filter?" Answer: Pretty unlikely. Parts that must be tested are Vacuum system. Must be tested for leaks. Leaks are detected placing an hand gauge (Vacuum and Pressure Tester) in the vacuum lines while warming up the lines. Regarding the thermal control valve, this is not equopped on all Talon . Check if the problem can be the EGR temperature sensor. This will explain the revving up and down with cold engine. In that case the problem would be the EGR valve opening and closing erratically. Here a service manual: 1993 Laser/Talon

    Thank you so much for your speedy response! I went and got one that works from a salvage yard and will put it in today. I'll let you know how it goes. Also, there are three vacuum hoses on top of the throttle body and according to the schematics one of them is supposed to go to the thermo valve, what should I do if there is no thermo valve? I've got it plugged with a bolt right now.

    Where the thermo valve is supposed to screw in to the thermostat housing, there is a sensor with a plug instead. Do you know what that sensor goes to? I was thinking of disconnecting the sensor and hooking up the thermo valve, is this a bad idea?

    Again, thank you for all your help.

Hi! The problem may be the ECM (engine control module) thats why the idle is going crazy. The ECM controls the fuel and air mixture and may need to be replaced to correct the problem. Hope this helps and have a good one!

    Try this, check the vaccum hoses. They may be worn and causing vaccum leakage. Try replacing the vaccum hoses for tight hoses can prevent vaccum leakage. Good luck!

    Hi! The socket of the MAF (mass air flow) sensor may be a little loose. When it is not inserted properly or the socket is corroded the result is it dies when accelerator is pushed. Try checking the socket and it may work.

First thing to do is replace the oxygen sensor. Next, remove, clean and replace the idle air motor and channel. Also, look for vacuum leaks and make sure the throttle cable is not too tight

    Yes, replace the fuel filter and do a complete tune up. (Change spark plugs, spark plug wire, air filter, distributor cap and rotor) The most important thing to change is the O2 sensor, this would cause you car to idle up and down because it is sending mixed signals to the PCM

2003 ford explorer idle surged on me driving. Stopped and put in neutral went up to 3000 rpms. Fast idle now


Given all the electronic sensors that could cause this problem , your best bet is to take it to a qualified repair shop where they have advanced testing equipment . Just so you do spend all your money replacing parts ,,here is just a couple that can cause this problem ! Idle air control valve , throttle position sensor , vacuum leaks , map sensor . dirty throttle plate . mass air flow sensor . A qualified repair shop has a scan tool that can check data for all these sensors .

Hi guys,I have the 1994 eagle talon that idles rough.I replaced coil pack,did tune up an sensors.still idle rough


Possible vacuum leak. Check all hoses under hood for cracks/disconnections/leaks. Will be heard by a hiss type noise. You may have to scan computer to monitor sensor operating parameters with a scan tool to isolate this problem

I have a 92 talon, has a rough idle when coasting and has low idle when still. I replaced plugs, wires, cleaned IAC valve, mass air flow sensor is good, cleaned the throttle body, added injector cleaner,...


Yes a vacuum leak could be the problem. Try filling a spray-bottle with tap water and spraying the vacuum lines and connections while the car is running.

C220-manual transmission. erratic idling and sometimes idles up and down. Has been serviced and throttle body cleaned but still does this. Happens more often when the engine is warm.


according to your information it's faulty mass air flow sensor, check mass air flow sensor first, when the Idle rough just disconnect the air flow sensor wiring socket if it's better than when it's connected it's faulty air flow sensor, mass air flow sensor have fitted between air cleaner housing and throttle body, you can see wiring connector been connect on it you have to turn it anticlockwise and remove it. when you fix it back do the reverse order, if it's faulty replace air flow sensor. is this information helped you?

My 1996 eagle talon tsi (just bought) idles rough but when I drive its smooth, no rough idle. I need to know what is wrong with it and how to fix it


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.
