On average, the cost for a Ford Escort Cold Start Injector Replacement is $106 with $11 for parts and $95 for labor. Prices may vary depending on your location.
The cold start injector is also known as the cold start valve. The part is located on the cold air intake, which is found on the intake manifold. It is a fuel injector that is controlled electronically. The cold start injector works only when the engine has a cold start, or when the engine’s temperature is below a certain point. When this happens, a computer tells the injector to inject more fuel into the mixture that goes through the cylinders to the engine. The goal is for the engine to have an easier and faster start even when it is cold.
It is important to note that the temperature is referring to that of the engine, not the outside weather. When the cold start injector isn’t working properly, the engine will sound rough and will have trouble idling unless pressure stays on the pedal to increase the amount of fuel that goes into the manifold. The engine may keep dying every time it is started until it warms up enough.
If the engine sounds unusual when idling or if it has trouble starting when it is cold, you should have one of our expert mechanics inspect the cold start injector. The technician can test it with a diagnostic meter to determine the issue.
The engine may not start when the cold start injector stops working, so it is important to have it tested before you are stranded.
