    So I have a 1994 Eagle talon fwd no turbo at the moment I have been trying to fix it up I just now turned it on. I changed the spark plugs and wires Changed the fuel pressure regulator as well. Turned it on tried to drive it and no power. Takes a while to rev up. Shift and still takes long to keep the rpms going up my foot is all the way down to the pedal. I was wondering what you guys think might be wrong I’m new to this type of car

    Check mechanical timing, maybe a clogged cat or collapsed exh. as well.

    The exhaust it had was cut right where the manifold was so I bought headers that go straight to the middle of the car no bc I couldn’t connect it to the cat so I just cut it.

    Sounds like the fuel pressure regulator might be bad? If it was working fine before?

    It was 27* cold LOL
    And I did a compression test it was 180 all four cylinders did a wet test as well it was 200 for all four cylinders
    Did a pressure test right at the fuel filter it was 50
    And I have changed the fuel pressure regulator and did no change at all car ran fine before I got it then the person who had it left it sitting for 2 years

    Do you have a CEL? Maybe the MAF, TPS or another sensor is unplugged or bad. Do you have anything to read live OBD2 data with?
