Well, you've probably noticed by now that things look a little different around here. You are a keen observer!

The whole site is new and that includes all of the software that drives this forum. With probably over 10,000 settings and hundreds of back-end programs trying to talk to one another, there are bound to be a few glitches that we haven't discovered yet. So, if you happen to stumble upon anything that just doesn't seem right, give us a shout and we'll try to sort it out.

Thanks for using the VCOA Forum and enjoy the new look!

Hi all, I was running a fuel injection check on my 72 p1800E and broke the thermo time sensor while removing it. I've looks all over the net and can't seem to find a replacement. Any ideas where to find one?

Original problem was/is warm temp start issues and rough running when very warm. So far have checked pressure regulator, cold start injector, fuel pressure during and after engine on and the pressure sensor.
I should mention that I am also having alternator/voltage regulator issues. Any body care to opine ? Thanks, Donald.

Hello, Donald;

Does your car's FI system have a coolant temperature sensor/sender?

Hi George,
Thanks for the links. I did use the FI fault check. Still haven't checked resistance on the water temp and air temp sensors, and have not pulled and checked the injectors.
The problem is now getting worse. Car stars fine when cold. After a variable amount of time (20 min) its starts to miss and then very quickly dies. Can't restart until cold. Smells very rich. Did fix the voltage problem.
I have a reply from iroll about a thermo time sensor. They may have one, if not I let you know.
