    1G Alternator 80A fusible link blew, must use OEM or is aftermarket one ok?

    If the radio turns on but has no output it's either a shorted/defective speaker (the internal amp in the radio is protecting itself) or the internal amp is defective, or both. You can check the speakers with a multimeter. If they show ~4 ohms they should work, if any show 0 ohms they are shorted...

    Orca - 11 sec street rippa

    Just read the whole thread...good stuff! Did you find the cause for you pushing coolant? Was it the water pump or was that unrelated?

    1G Car shuts off after running...

    Have you replaced the capacitors in the ECU? A bad idle circuit will do things like you describe.

    1G Best source for replacement knock sensor?

    I first called my local Autozone and NAPA, neither had them available. The parts store availability seems to be drying up too.

    1G Best source for replacement knock sensor?

    I just picked up one of these (Pep Boys via ebay): https://www.ebay.com/itm/SMP-Knock-Sensor-KS28/163664498341?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 Brand new, NTK sensor, made in Japan. Standard Motor Products box. FYI, I searched the earlier posted list online, and there...

    1G Help with shift and pressure solenoid diagnosis

    After a duh moment (I realized how off my multimeter was due to some bad test probes), I found out my solenoids were in spec and fine. Too bad I already tore up one of the filters on a shift solenoid while trying to pry it off. Oh well, I got a new set online for ~ $60. I dug into my valve...

    1G Help with shift and pressure solenoid diagnosis

    Thanks, I got the valve body out last night and checked the resistance again. I'm still getting the same readings at the plug but the solenoids do click when I give them 12v. I'll check the resistance again at the solenoids themselves to narrow down my problem.

    1G Help with shift and pressure solenoid diagnosis

    So after wiring up my Forced Four Smart 100.1 shift box and doing a test run, I still only have P, N, R, and 3rd gear. I used my multimeter to check the resistance of the pressure control solenoid valve and the A/B shift solenoids at the plug on the transmission. I show ~28 ohms for the shift...

    1G Where is my VSS located?

    Thanks for the update. I just finished installing mine and grabbed the VSS on the TCU. I soldered all the connections...maybe that will slightly help with the signal quality. I saw plenty of bad t-tap connections from my days as a car audio installer.

    1G Where is my VSS located?

    Did this ever get resolved? From looking at the wiring diagrams, the VSS wire on the TCU (pin #40 Yellow/White) is the correct (and only) wire for a VSS in a 1G.

    1G Forced Four shift box help

    Bumping this for a quick question. If I have a original auto car, most if not all the wiring can be done at the TCU plugs, correct?

    I back flushed the radiator and heater core with my garden hose. I used some of this in the heater core: https://www.amazon.com/Thermocure-Coolant-Remover-Removes-Cooling/dp/B00R74I5UY/ref=sr_1_7?keywords=radiator+flush&qid=1558441845&s=gateway&sr=8-7 I let it sit in the heater core overnight...

    New 1G owner in NOLA

    I flushed out the heater core and radiator yesterday. Today I removed my timing and balancer belts. The timing was correct but the balance shaft was 180 degrees out of phase, so that was probably a huge part of how rough the car was running.

    New 1G owner in NOLA

    I think my cooling system may need to be flushed/cleaned. :D And my thermostat was missing. And my stock turbo needs a new gasket. I'll be replacing all the cooling hoses and cleaning or replacing the water neck and thermostat housing...then doing a thorough flush.

    1G Purchase advise, 1992 Talon AWD automatic

    I have already ordered a new damper. The original has some cracks in it but is still in one piece. The water pump pulley bolts were on finger tight and some of the bolts holding the timing cover on were wrong. Two of the bolts were from the spark plug cover on the valve cover.

    1G Purchase advise, 1992 Talon AWD automatic

    Any ideas why my timing belt cover would look like this? I realize the belts and pulleys were cutting into it, I'm just not sure why.

    New 1G owner in NOLA

    I pulled some stuff apart today to get a look at the timing belt to verify it's timed correctly (the mechanic/PO said he didn't like to do timing belts). Also, checking the records he gave me...all the "recent" services he did were back in 2006! Needless to say it needs some love. I'll replace...

    Update: I got the fuel tank back from being cleaned and lined, installed the pump and a new battery, filled with 6 gallons of 93 octane, and got the car to fire up! It's idling a little rough and some or all of the mounts are torn. But it's alive! I replaced the spark plugs and wires, fuel...

    Hi everyone, I just picked up a '92 Talon TSi AWD auto last week. https://www.dsmtuners.com/threads/purchase-advise-1992-talon-awd-automatic.522306/ I got the car home last Wednesday, and with the help of my wife, pushed it under our carport. So far, I've pulled the gas tank...it's getting...

    1G Purchase advise, 1992 Talon AWD automatic

    I've read mixed reviews on whether or not the Walbro 255 will overrun the stock FPR. I'm familiar with the Whinebros from the 3000gt applications. I like their newer, quiet, 450 E85 pumps...but that's really overkill for now. The Denso 3000gt pump is only $71 on Amazon, so it's cheap and should...

    1G Purchase advise, 1992 Talon AWD automatic

    Update: I was going to pick the car up today, but I didn't realize that I have to wait 7 days for my AAA membership to activate for 100+ mile towing benefits. So...next week, I guess. I'm getting anxious! For the fuel pump, I'm thinking the Denso 9500154 (same as my 3000gt)...

    1G Purchase advise, 1992 Talon AWD automatic

    I will be using AAA for towing. It's $114 for a premier membership that includes one tow up to 200 miles per year. I'm flying to Austin in two weeks and driving my 3000gt back home (500 miles), so AAA might really come in handy anyways. Thanks for the info, guys. I won't beat the guy up on the...

    1G Purchase advise, 1992 Talon AWD automatic

    I have to get it towed about 134 miles, so that adds a bit to the price as well. I think it's a good deal regardless of the issues. I would like to mod the car but may just keep it stock. I have a '92 3000gt VR4 as well, which is my money pit.

    I'll post some pics. *edit* pics added to first post Injector cleaning is about $100 for four, right? Never had it done but I've seen it advertised. I didn't get a picture of the rust but it looks like mostly surface scale. The pump came out very easily though...so that was nice.
