Thread: New Cold Star Question

    New Cold Start Question

    I poked around a bit more at the Euro this morning and determined the following:

    1) I was mistaken in that the wire attached to the cold start solenoid DOES in fact go back into the wiring harness. The two loose wires that I found are probably for the rear window wiper which is missing on my car.

    2) I used a test light to confirm that the cold start solenoid is getting power when I crank the motor.

    3) I also trickle charged the battery in the unlikely event I was not getting enough juice to start the car. This was not the case, nor did I think it would be since the car starts just fine when warm.

    The car is still not starting very easily when cold. I could pull off a fuel line to see if it is getting any gas when I start the car. Not sure I want to do that however, as my mechanical skills are a bit more limited.

    I'm all ears however, if anybody has any other ideas of why my car has suddenly gone from easy to start when cold to now requiring quite a bit of cranking.

    Thanks to all.

    I just went through the same problem. My engine stopped starting from cold. But after a jump start, the engine would instantly turn over for the rest of the day. Otto cured my car of the problem. Something to do with fixing the cold start intake, the fuel injection, plus I replaced both batteries. Sorry I can't be more help but I don't pretend to be any kind of mechanic.
