    replaced cold start injector and still having problems

    I replaced my cold start injector yesterday and i thought i finally fixed the hard starting problem but today i tried turning my supra on and it still took me 3 or 4 tries. What else can be causing this problem?

    Cold start time switch or
    Your STA wire is not hooked up. (from the starter to the ECU)
    This tell the cold start to open when the coolant temp is low.

    The black wire on a auto or black/white on 5 speeds that is on the CSI and goes to the ECU, Starter after the IGN switch. If the CSI temp sensor is not working it is either grounded (injector always open)or open(injector never opens when cold).

    what exactly is the car doing? does it stall at first? If it is warm will the car start right up? I had this problem and did the same thing you did and spent way to much on a cold start injector and realized that didn't fix my problem. Next I did what I found to be called a thermo sensor switch it was located in the thermostat housing. It wasn't easy to find the part but my local auto parts store found it from a company called Airtex they make engine management components they are located in like Iowa any other questions just pm me

    Your temp switch is the brown plug on thermostat housing. Check this. The green one sits next to it.

    You want to look at the EFI temp sensor.

    The larger 2 wire sensor on the thermostat housing is the cold start time switch.

    TSRM Link : http://www.cygnusx1.net/Supra/Librar...aspx?S=FI&P=72

    The smaller 2 wire sensor, is the EFI temperature sensor. That tells the computer that it is cold outside. Most hard start situations are related to this sensor.

    Chances are the sensor is broken, a common problem. However, many times, it is the harness itself. The wires break right where they bend and enter the connector.

    If you need a replacement sensor and/or harness connector, let me know.
