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.

When I start my 1990 Talon TSI runs fine as it warms up runs real rich has no power and boost is very high. At low RPM around 2500 its fine after that all hell brakes lose bogs down and wont go ?


check the air cleaner and replace if necessary. ( low air volume = rich mixture ). Check/clean exhaust system as back pressure may be too high at high rpm's. Check fuel quality and do not use e-mix fuels.

My 1997 eagle talon tsi fwd turbo with a 1st gen motor in it. I let my car sit for about 9 months and i charged the battery and it started up just fine and i started it up for about three months after...


The plugs are gas fouled. You can use a propane torch and heat/ burn the electrode end and burn the gas off, get them red hot. While the plugs are out, move the plug wires away from the plug holes and turn the engine over several times to get rid of some of the fuel. by the time the plugs cool off the cylinders should be some what dry. If you don't have a torch get new plugs.

Electrical problem - 1990 Eagle Talon TSI


the controllers in the vehicle draw a small amount of power even if the car is not running, probably enough to drain a battery over a long period of time, when you store a car it is recommended to charge the battery at least once a month

I think the only thing you can really do to find out what the problem is, is to rip a part the block and look inside.
