Cold Start Valves

The cold start valve can act as another fuel injector to the engine. It is located on the air filtration system and has connections to both the fuel system and the electrical system. It aids the start of the vehicle in cold conditions. It helps get things going when the cold makes everything slower. The cold start valve injects fuel in to the flow of air from the air intake. This enriches the air and makes it easier for the starter to fire up and the pistons to start churning. The cold start valve is the same as the other valves except that its timing is in seconds instead of milliseconds like the basic injectors. The problem with the cold start valve is that if it leaks, the engine runs too rich and disturbs the gas mileage and horsepower. It can be an extra element of the engine to check that may not be thought of at first.
