Question about Cars & Trucks
My corolla LE 1.8 2009 (when it is cold) starts in the second or third roll over and make black smoke and gasoline smell from the exhaust . I replaced fuel pump and spark plugs but still the same . Then I cleaned fuel injectors , the cleaner told me one of injectors gives fuel more than the rest 3 injectors . I replaced it but still the same .What is the problem ? which part can i replace to be fixed ? thanks
If a repair shop did the cleaning & tested
some how to tell you that,then the injectors
have to come out & be ultra sonic cleaned
Fairly new vehicle for those issues
Try a different shop
The only reason to replace the fuel pump was
if it failed completely
Car is too new to need spark plug wires,was the ignition
system even tested & was fuel pressure tested?
Have to look at fuel trim on a scan tool also.

SOURCE: cold start valve problem
if you have an electric cold start valve make sure to unplug it and if keeps apling fuel with electrical conector unpluged that means the valve is not good, but if not then you have an electronic problem, possible a bad cold start sensor or cold start module or cicuit problem, and might be a time to take it to an electrical shop

Chrysler has a bulletin out for a simular condititon that involves replacing the pcm. Heres the bulletin number 18-005-04. This is only 1 possible cause , Fuel pressure, coolant temp sensor, thottle position sensor all can cause like problems. Seeing sensor values and fuel adaptives with a scan tool helps pin point problems.

I would talk to who cleaned the injectors, I don't know if it something they did or not. It could be a stuck open injector. The exhaust would have a raw fuel odor if it was. What it sounds like is a blown headgasket, which can just happen. The exhaust would have a sweet smell to it. Usually starts as a small leak (between cyl. 2 & 3), the engine burns the coolant while driving which you don't see. Then the coolant level gradually drops to a point where the car overheats, which warps the head, causing a large leak. Now you see the coolant burning (white smoke).
Good luck Honda Al

Testimonial: "Thank you so much for your help. I did find out the problem. I had a bad distributor cap and rotor. Got it fixed and now the car runs fine."
Sounds like your injection pump timing is off, an injector is leaking or a bad seal on your IP.
VW dealers have a horrible reputation when it comes to TDI's. Check out the posts over at www.tdiclub.com Those guys are very knowledgeable - and the first thing they'll tell you is don't take it to a dealer.
You can probably find someone in your area that has a copy of Vag-Com (scantool software that vw uses) software that could look at your timing. It definitely sounds like your dealer was throwing parts at your car because they didn't know what your problem is. If I were you, I'd copy and paste your post from here over at www.tdiclub.com
