A new one is about $80 and easy to remove/install yourself. Do a little more resarch to make sure that's the problem though. Have you had your base C.O. set, throttle bodies synced, idle adjusted? It probably wouldn't hurt to pay a visit to a local garage and have a mechanic suss it out. No need to waste time and risk screwing something up yourself :^)


No Cold start valve, the Motronic unit keeps the injectors open for a longer period of time.

because i notice on a cold start, the car feels like its gonna die! Whats the deal?
