It may not be an injector as such. In the UK it's known as an air idle valve or air bypass sensor. It acts as a 'choke' for cold starting. I've put a couple of photos on my website for comparison - www.glennsmart.btinternet.co.uk - choose 'Volvo 960' from the drop down menu.

Stand at the front of the car, locate the air filter box and follow the wide bore plastic tubing to the inlet manifold. The air idle valve sits in a rubber ring attached beneath and attached to the tubing. It has an electrical connector plugged into it.

It's very easy to remove.

Where is cold start valve located on a 1992 Volvo 240?

The cold start valve is sometimes called the fifth injector. It is mounted to the intake air distribution box and is in line with the fuel rail. It has an electrical connection, a fuel inlet line and a fuel outlet line. The valve is essentially constructed the same as the regular fuel injectors. The main difference is that the cold start valve injection time is measured in seconds rather than in milliseconds like the regular injectors.

What could cause a 1991 Celica ST to be difficult to start when cold then starts quick all day but the idle is too high?

this could be due to a faulty cold start injector, or cold start injector time switch. Could also be caused by incorrect valve adjustment.

maybe weak battery or an injector component is defective ( the additional injector that gives extra fuel to start the car )


What is a Thermo Time Switch?

A thermo time switch is a temperature sensor device normally used to turn on a cold start injector in German cars. The cold start injector is an extra injector normally mounted in the intake manifold. The thermo time switch will allow current through it to your cold start injector for a few seconds ( 3 - 8 depending on the make and model of car ) when the engine is cold and first started. This puts extra fuel in the system and helps it start. If your thermo time switch fails you may have a hard time starting when cold or, more commonly, a difficult time starting the car when hot. The problem in the latter case is the extra injector flooding the car when trying to start it.

What is the cold start pipe on the 1987 pontiac fiero gt fuel rail?

There is a high pressure fuel line under the throttle body that carries fuel to the cold start injector. There is a black pipe that feeds idle air to the same spot to insure the cold start injector gets a good mixture.

What is a cold start injector on a 1986 Honda CRX?

The cold start injector does what the name implies. When you first turn the key to start (on a cold engine) the CSI gives the engine a richer mixture by injecting fuel into the intake manifold while the starter is engaged so it starts faster/easier. How long the cold start injector runs depends on the temperature. (Usually only a few seconds). There isn't a cold-start injector on your car. The cold-start injector, aka the "fifth injector," is a relic of the Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection system. This was designed in the 1960s and is essentially mechanical. On the K-Jetronic, when the Cylinder Head Temperature sensor detected the engine was below a certain operating temp, it would inject fuel into the throttle body. Think of it as a fancy choke. Cold-start injectors have one huge problem in today's emissions-paranoid climate: all that extra fuel generates extra pollution. That will not do. Honda uses a cold-advance solenoid valve in 1986 cars. There is a cable connecting it to the FI computer, and a vacuum hose connecting it to the distributor. (For all you guys who ever wondered why there are TWO hoses going into the vacuum advance on a Honda distributor when most cars only have one...well, this is why.) When the engine is below operating temperature, the cold-advance solenoid draws vacuum on the distributor, which advances the timing and makes the engine run faster without all the smog a cold-start injector would cause.


Why is your 1993 4Runner hard to start in cold weather?

Check your battery first.. If it is fine, you might need to replace your cold start injector timing switch. Fairly expensive, but should work.


Can you service a cold start valve from a Volvo 240?

It could be different reasons. Personally I had a similar problems and replacing fuel injector relay fixed it for now.


When cold you have to pump accelerator many times before it starts What could be the problem?

pumping probably isn't helping if the truck has fuel injection. extended cold crank times are often caused by a bad cold start injector or the control for the injector. also if there is no fuel pressure (i.e. a fuel pressure regulator that is leaking back into the tank as the car sits), it will take awhile to start.

Where is the cold start valve how does it work?

millisecondThe cold start valve is sometimes called the fifth injector. It is mounted to the intake air distribution box and is in line with the fuel rail. It has an electrical connection and a fuel inlet line and a fuel outlet line. S The cold start valve is essentially constructed the same as the regular fuel injectors. The main difference is that the cold start valve injection time is measured in seconds rather than in milliseconds like the regular injectors. The cold start valve receives power from the double relay when the key is in the start position but only injects fuel into the intake air distributor when the cold start valve is grounded by the thermo-time switch. The purpose of the cold start valve is to inject fuel into the intake air stream when the engine is cold (and the starter operating) in order to richen the fuel/air mixture for easier starting. It can be tested in the same manner as the other injectors. Leakage is undesirable as it will cause the engine to run rich. sorry no pics millisecondThe cold start valve is sometimes called the fifth injector.

How do you start a cold fuel injected engine for a 1995 Toyota 4Runner 6 cylinder?

Starting is the same for a cold or a hot engine. Key in and turn. I must admit I think you are asking something else tho, right? Are you having trouble starting a cold engine? If so the cold start injector is probably clogged, not working or disconnected. Open the hood and look at the manifold. On the left side there will be many vacuum lines and hoses. In the middle there will be a connector coming in from the top at the edge of the manifold. This is the cold start injector. Ensure it is connected correctly and it may need to be inspected internally if the connection is good.


How do you change a fuel injector in a 2.8 fiero motor?

There are actually seven fuel injectors. Six on the main fuel rail and one that acts as a cold start injector. The cold start is very easy to get to. It sticks by itself alone on the passenger side of the motor below the intake. For the main six injectors, you have to remove the red intake plenum assembly. Once you remove it, you will see the fuel injector rail with three sticking out on both sides. Relieve pressure to the system and then remove the rail.

The engine on an s reg 406 glx td engine turns over fine but won't start is this likely to be the glow plugs and is replacing them a diy job thanks?

Glow plugs only make starting easier for diesels. If you put the vehicle in a warm location and let it sit overnight, it should start even without glow plugs if the engine isn't too cold. Make certain that you are getting fuel to the injector pump assembly. With someone cranking the engine, loosen the fuel inlet at the injector pump and see if you have any fuel pressure to the high-pressure injector pump. If not, check the filter and low pressure pump.
