Is the Turbo in the capri controlled by the ECU? Im looking to put a manual boost controller on it if it is, along with a rocketman chip

This happened to my son's 97 saturn sc2, would not start cold.  Bad temp sensor said the cold engine was warmed up, so ECM only put a trickle of gas out the injectors like a warm engine needed, not a lot like a cold engine needed.  Anybody remember chokes?  Cold engines need a rich mixture to start up.

Anyone got a spare valve spring shim, the one that goes under the spring in the head? I've lost one in the process of disassembly and cleaning.

Since I bought this car in 2012 it would "occasionally" throw the 09 Code. The individual who told me to replace or to check the sensor is a retired Mazda Mech. He said the sensor going bad would cause the engine to have the same symptoms  as a bad crankshaft sensor as a no spark/hard start/no start condition. I checked the "ECT" Posts just now and a few commented/touch on this subject. Anyhow replacing my ECT fixed my problem.

The crappy picture on site looks to be similar to the '88 Mazda 323 heater core pictures on Rockauto.

$300 used vs. $50 new. $50 might be worth the gamble.

I'm trying to locate pictures of a heater core I removed from a Capri, but I took them nearly a decade ago

This may sound strange but my "No Start" turned out to be the Coolant Temp Sensor located on the firewall side of the motor that reads directly to the ECM. Wasn't getting any spark and many told me it was the igniter in the Distributor causing the problem. I also was getting a no jump from the Tach with key on.  I was able to buy a complete rebuilt Distributor with a New igniter installed from a closeout Auto Parts Store, installed it but  still no go. I painstakingly went thru the wiring harness's checking each wire, but found no problems. Car sat for 6 months till I was told by someone that a bad Coolant Temp Sensor would cause a hard start/NO START condition. I replaced this sensor($14 off EBAY) and after 6 months of the car sitting she fired right up...

Did the car throw a code for the bad sensor? Haven't heard of this one before.

Thanks.  I'll check, and wait to hear if anyone has had experience with either of these working too.
