1995 Eagle Talon Repair Question
Asked on December 22, 2011
Computer problem with 1995 eagle talon
My car started with a slight hesitation every once in awhile. it would actually kick the cruise off and the alt light would come on for a second. the rpms would dip too. the other day on my way to work it shut of while driving down the road. it would not start back up right away. i waited and kept trying and it finally started it did this 4 times in about a 10 mile stretch. i went home after that and it ran good all the way home with the occasional hesitation. i have replaced the tps, the idle air control, the fuel pressure regulator, fuel pump, fuel injectors. it will also just shut off after being started and just idling and then most times i have to push the gas to get it started. it's been doing the hesitation for about a year the shutting off while idling started about 2 or 3 months ago, and the shutting off while driving happened for the first time the other day. i am thinking it could be the ecm. please let me know what you think. thanks,

Next time don't wait for nothing do below to determine if its a fuel or spark issue-
Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine at least 3/16 away from ground -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem,Do you hear the fuel pump come On when you turn key on? If not check fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay if so, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs,coil's resistances,distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it.
