Question about 1991 Eagle Talon
My 92 eagle starts a little hard but idles and runs great when cold lacks some power but once it warms up it wants to die when i let off the gas after accelerating even though it will idle fine just a little low and it is almost impossible to start when at normal operating temp i got it with a head gasket leak and i fixed that ive tried everything but checking the turbo can that have any affect on this
The INFAMOUS DSM Hot Start Problem
Here are a few things to try: 1) Block off your EGR valve. Sometimes these fail, and when they do, this is what happens.
2) Change your vaccum hoses, especially the one going to the fuel-pressure regulator. Sometimes this one leaks and creates problems for the FPR.
3) Change your plug wires. I'd use some MagnaCore wires. They're less $$$ than the stock ones, and they're 8.5mm opposed to the stock 6mm. The stock wires are no good, especially when raising the boost.
4) Clean your throttle body REALLY well. Make it spotless, including both sides of the throttle plate.
5) Clean out your intercooler. Do this by taking it out, dump about a gallon of gasoline into it, then shake it around and dump out. Repeat process until gas coming out is clean.
