Dear 356-930 and other responders to this post,

I would like to give you an update as to whats happening w/ my car in the hands of my mechanic. First of all we replaced the ignition coil because the original coil was already leaking w/ oil at the top edges. I replaced it temporarily w/ a working Bosch coil and the car idles & run better. I ordered the proper one from pelican & it will arrived next month. I believe the ignition coil we replaced was w/ the car since 1989. We also discovered that the socket that connects to the CDI was loose. We discovered it when we were trying to start the car 30mins after shutting down then restarting it. While I was cranking car what he did was to wiggle the connector going to the CDI and the car started at once. We reconnected the cold start valve . The mechanic tightened the CDI connector. He tested the car bringing it to operating temp. We shut off and restarted the car after 30 mins ,the car refuses to start . He disconnected the connection immediately going to the cold start valve and the car immediately started. My thermo time switch is new it was replaced 2 months ago and its specific for the 89 930 USA version. Do you think my cold start valve is the culprit?
