the one above. the white one. It's not so much for a "cold start
signal" as a temperature sender for the ECU in general. They go bad.
All of Ben's go bad, at least. I haven't seen one fail... but they are
cheap and it's nice to know you have a new one.
You should also perform the ignominious (gross) task of undoing every
electrical connection in your engine bay one at a time, clean them, and
reassemble with dielectric grease. I might have said that somewhere
before in the archives or on my web site...
and I think that one is the thermotime sender for the cold start valve.
operating without part numbers here, of course, so take this with a
grain of salt! But, if these are actual 4kq parts (say), that is what
they are. I think.
