I have a question on how Betsy's alx air valve works. Here in Utah it was warm and she started ok not great but ok then it went back to winter and she threw a fit the only way she would start is if I opened the air cleaner and O so slightly put just a little press on the mas air plate for about 45 sec then she idles and warms up but now it is warm again and she starts ok again. My question is the operation I have electrical and coolant going through valve. When you come out in the morning (over night temp 45) should the plate be closed or should the plate show passage. My thinking is when cold it should be shut to give less air to the more gas but I have talked to 15 different techs it s about split down the center I don't think they have any idea just like me. Then as it warms up it shows more passage to lean out out that is my idea. When I go out in the morning she is showing passage and when I get home it may show just a hair more passage not not a hole hell of a lot. I was waiting for the 3 disc set that I ordered to check it out but it has not arrived yet. Betsy is a 1984 190e 2.3L 8 valve manual tranny. I have tryed to attach pics of the valve.
