1994 eagle sumitt over heating at stops

Check to see if the radiator fans are turning on. If not check fuses, then connectors, and the fans themselves. If they all work as they should check the engine coolant temp sensor. There are 2, one for the temp gauge on the dash and one for the ECU. Check the one for the ECU (if you've gotten this far).

I have a 91 talon tsi awd. the kid i got it off did some stupid thing with the stock wiring harness. now the car has a problem starting but after start up the car is a beast. i feel like the car isn't...

Since this is 91, its likely that the original engine has been replaced, and various other mods have been done. Essentially you need ot figure out what the previous owner did, and either fix it or ignore it.

A common "trick" with the wiring is to change the MAF sensor (on the air filter can) around to get more fuel at high boost. Pull off the 8 pin connector and check for bent pins. Check for 5V (NOT +12v) on one of the pins, as this is the MAF sensor supply voltage.

Other issues are the coolant temp sensor (2 pin sensor with black? connector on the themostat housing) connection.

If the temp sensor is not properly connected, or the wrong sensor for the engine, it will be hard to start esspecially when cold.

If possible, verify what ECU is fitted. The 90-91 ECU has slightly different pin connections to the 92-94.

You may also have fuel pump relay issues. This is the large can in the center console, near the ECU.
Open the ECU and check the large electrolytic capacitors for leaks. Its a common problem, and there various people around who will replace them before they destroy the ECU board.

Check all the vacuum hoses for cracks and leaks. Check the hoses for the intercooler and up to the throttle body.

Have a look at for more information.

Pulsing in idle while in park only

No its not ur pcv or ur vacuum.

There is a little sensor on the bottom of your throttlebody called ISC

They almost always go bad in these cars.

You can find ones that are good used at

they also can explain to you how to test the ISC.

91-92 talon hard to nearly impossible to start

Just an idea, but I think that you are onto something with the temperature sensor. If overheating was the cause of the head gasket to go, then I would imagine it would've fried the temperature sensor also. That would make it nearly impossible to start. The sensor should be fairly cheap enough to replace. Probably wouldn't even through out a code. My Mother-in-Law had the same problem with her Saturn, changed the temp. sensor and BINGO. No more problem. You just have to make sure you get the computer temperature sensor, not the fan temp. sensor. There are 2 of them suckers. Believe it or not. Hope this can help "with your idea". Best wishes.
