Question about 2005 Subaru Forester
It is not starting when cold since the cold start valve is not functioning. 1-It could be a coolant temperature sensor gives a wrong resistance readings when it cold so ECM doesn't know to send a signal to turn on the cold start valve. 2- It could be a bad cold start valve. I doesn't open even the ECM send a signal to it to open. You can see that Ohm reading on the terminals of the cold start valve is good, but it is still bad since your measuring the coil to open a valve showing the coil is good but valve gets stuck could not be opened. Good luck in checking these out for a good replacement..
