Re: Cold start problem '90 80

I own an '88 80 with the same engine.  The problem is the thermo/time
switch.  There is no cold start valve in this model, the fuel system is
KE-Jetronic(no cold start valve vs K-Jet which had it).  I had the same
problem with my starting, but took at least 5-8 tries to crank it in VT.
on cold days.  Check the voltage on the thermo/time switch before
replacing, if it is a good factory spec voltage then you need to check
the fifth injector to see if it is working, but almost always the
thermo/time switch.  Visit The Audi 80 Pages(my website)
http://surf.to/the80pages.com  and click on the Audi 80 Technical Pages
link up top for more info.  Always good to see more 80 front wheelers on
the list, good luck!
