Customer Question
Hi I have a...

Hi I have a 96 talon tsi that gets no fuel or spark

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

Very labored I changed the fuel filter and have checked the relay it does not prime when key is turned

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Talon yourself? What have you tried so far?

Now does not start at all

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I am a mechanic but have never had a bad asd

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

I need to know if the asd is built into the mfi relay on the 96 tsi talon if so then I think I may have isolated the issue. I know that the fuel pump works I jumped it through the plug for the mfi (fuel pump relay) when I turn the key the switch leg for the ignition changes from 0 to 12 V so I know the relay is getting the signal also it has the constant 12 v in the plug as well this is how I was able to jump it to make it run. I changed the fuel filter when I brought the car back to life it sat for ten years I have driven it for three months. I changed the oil yesterday and under acceleration the car cut out as if the spark and fuel immediately cut out
