95 eagle talon tsi problems. rough idle, backfires, and dies DSM 4G63
Just replaced the timing and balance shaft belts. 200 miles later it acts like it jumped time. The Exhaust is smoking because i performed a wet compression test so its burning out the tranny fluid. The engine bay is smoking because it fired up while there was no valve cover on and it covered everything in oil. alternator will not charge. Put on a new alternator and it still will not charge. compression tests good and coil packs are okay. parking lamp wires are all melted up and shorted so i have the front bumper off to access the wiring. looks like i need a new ECU. IF ANYBODY HAS ANY IDEAS PLEASE LET ME KNOW THANK YOU
97 Eclipse GSX Problem/HORRIBLE sound - FOUND THE PROBLEM-
UPDATE: I found the problem, my oil pump sprocket had broken into a couple
pieces and was grinding against the oil pump. The engine may be toast, I
don't know yet.
This is my 97 eclipse GSX. I just finished a 6 bolt swap with a brand new
block, forged pistons, eagle rods. I've been "babying" it every time I
drive it and plan to for 500 miles. its up to 70 miles and this noise just
started. It has plenty of fluids, running mobil 1 synthetic and even a can
of engine restorer to stop some ticking i had earlier.
First off, when I start it up the idle wants to be really low so I have to
give it gas for a couple seconds for the idle to stabilize.
Second and more importantly, there's this horrible noise that just started
yesterday while driving 30 mph down the street. Any help is greatly
My "new" 1995 Eagle Talon (intro)
Just a brief intro to my 1995 Eagle Talon that I bought for $600.00 USD.
When I bought it it had a major idle issue. It wouldn't stay running unless
you kept your foot on the accelerator either in park or in gear. It was
really bad in gear. (I know I said that I kept my foot on the brake in the
video ... LOL)
I have no plans of turning this into a race car or tuner. I want to keep it
as stock as possible. Maybe some performance mods, but I really doubt it.
Since buying it, I've replaced the IAC (Idle Air Control valve), the CPS
(Cam Position Sensor), the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) and the MAP
(Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor).
It's running a lot better, but still has an idle issue.
Doing the CEL (Check Engine Light) code retrieval, it comes up with a code
11. This references the Crankshaft Position Sensor. It could be a bad unit
or, since the timing belt, water pump and radiator were replaced before I
got it, the timing belt could have jumped one tooth or more.
I haven't gotten around to checking that yet. Hope I don't have to. LOL
But I will be documenting each service or repair that I do as I work on it.
I hope to be able to share what knowledge I have of this vehicle, albeit
limited for now, to maybe help others who might be running into the same
problems or scenarios.
Let me know what y'all think.
Thanks for watching. Leave a comment, suggestion or idea.
1995 Eagle Talon TSi AWD project; from Beginning to current. (Not completed).
In this video I take you on a little journy though the past 5-8 months and
the work completed on my Talon. It is nowhere near done quite yet,
well...for body it is. There are still many aspects I am planning on
hitting, such as the engine..
I will be building a 2.3L stroker with a Holset HX35 turbocharger and the works.. But in time it will
happen, certainly not right away. I have yet to apply for a job, but I am
working on it. Thanks for watching.

4g63 engine noise (FIXED)
Can anyone tell me what that noise is? (I think it's the Silent Shaft rod).
It's strongest between 2000-3000 rpm and over 4000 it's not that loud (idle
speed the same thing).
I don't have a generator and power steering on, so idle is higher right now
Many Thanks to you all!!
In the end it was a bad timing belt tensioner what made that noise.
