    Default 405 cold start

    g'day. can anyone say if thereis a way to adjust the cold start on my pug(405sr) that does not involve leaving the car with the mechanic overnight. He has tried taking it off when the engine is hot, cooling iit with ice and then adjusting it. Doesn't seem to work too well though tends to rev a bit high when cold. He took it again but now it doesn't revup at all.

    Ok, I don't know if it's just me, but I can't seem to understand what it is exactly that you are trying to adjust. The mechanic took what off and put what in ice?? Are you just trying to adjust the idle speed when the engine is cold??
    I reject the reality and substitute my own!!

    Sorry it is the cold start capsule that the mechanic took off. It adjusts the idle speed when the engine is cold

    let me see if i can explain a little better. normally, when the engine is cold it should idle at app 12000 rpm its not it is lower. Now there is a little thingamajig that needs to be adjusted to bring the revs up. THats what i am asking about. can it only be done hen the engine is cold or is there another way
