Duringall modes of operation. primary circuit
pressure holds the valve dosed. However, after the
engine has been switched off the primary circuit
pressure drops and the spring baded anti-suction
valve opens to allow fuei to flow from the return fine
into the primary circuit. This prwents a depression
forming above the wntrol piston.
Acceleration enrichment switetr {see fig. 82-16)
Fined to cars with a lambda control system.
During rapid acceleration, when the engine is
cold an extra rich airtfuel mixture is requiredto
preserve good driveability and safety when overtaking.
These requirementsare fulfilled by an
acceleration enrichment switch th# is connected
electrically to the ECU (via a thermat switch mounted
in the thermostat housing) and by a vacuum hose to
the inductionmanifold.
Inside the acceleratian enrichment switch are two
electrical contacts. One of the contacts is attached to a
spring loaded diaphragmthat has a small bleed hole.
Under normal driving conditions the induction
manifold vacuum signal acts on the diaphragm,
overcomes the spring and breaks the electrical
I f the throttles areopenedquickly, the induction
manifold signat decreases rapidly. the spring returns
the diaphragm and makes the eledrieal contacts.
The electrical signal is conveyed to the ECU which
then switches to provide the necessary rich mixture.
Acceleration enrichment is no longer required
once the engine has warmed-up. Therefore, at 8
predeterminedcoolant temperature the thermal
switch contacts break to inhibit the system.
Ttrmttte position switch (see fig. 02-17)
This switch is situated on the side of the throttle body.
The primary throttle spindle activatesthe switch
and changes the fuel injection system from the 'closed
loop' operating mode when the throttle is opened

Warm-up regulator (seefig. 82-18)
The purpose of the warm-up regulator is to increase
the control pressure as the engine warms-up so that
at normal operatingtemperature full control pressure
is exerted on the end of the control piston.
The unit is operated by a bi-metat strip which in
cold conditions acts against the delivery velve spring
and so determines the control pressure. When the
engine is started, this bi-metal strip is electricalty
heated and releasesthe delivery valve spring which
in turn allows the spring pressure to close the fuel
passage and increasethe control pressure.
On cars fitted with a lambda control system the
warm-up regutator assembly a tso incorporates an
aneroid cell which slightly adjusts the control
pressure for mixture compensation at high altitudes.
The warm-up regulator is located so that it will
assume the temperature of the engine, this ensures

that the mixture is not over enriched when starting a
partially warmed-up engine.
Auxiliary airv8lve (see fig. 82-19}
When the engine ismld the auxiliary air valve
supplies a larger volume of air to the ehgine than is
dictated by the position of the throttle butterflyvalve.
The air passes through a hole in a pivoted blocking
plate situated between the inlet and outlet
connections. The movement of !he blocking plate is
dependent upon an electrically heated bi-metal strip.
When starting a cold engine the blocking plate is
in the open position. Howwer, ss the bi-metal strip
warms-up it progressively relaxes its force on the
plate, allowingthe return spring to pull the plate to
the closed position. This reducesthe engine speed to
the normal idle speed setting.
Thermal t i m e e h (see fig. 82-20]
The thermal time switch limits the length of time that
the cold start injector remains open. During engine
cranking the heating coil inside the switch causes the
bi-metal contact to open which in turn, switches off
the cold start injector.
The switch is mounted in the thermostat housing
and inhibits operation of the cold start injector above
a predetermined coolant temperature.

The engine running sensor is located adjacent to the

The purpose of the engine running sensor is to
inhibit the supply of power to the fuel pump unless
the engine is running. There is however. one by-pass
to the circuit which afiowsthafuel pump to operate
when the engine is being 'cranked' by the starter
motor. A relay within the engine running sensor
assembly provides the means of switching on or off
the power supply to the fuel pump.
The supply to the fuel pump is along the pink
cabIe from the fuel injection system fuse to the
'engine running' sensor and thenouttothe pumpvia
the white/pinkcabfe. The engine running sensor circuit
is fed via the ignition fuse and h e white cable. It is
earthed through the black cable. When the engine is
beingcranked, a 12volt feed on the brownlblackcable
causes the retay in the sensor to be 'pulled in' and
thusthefuel pump is switched on. Oncethe engine is
running the ignition pulses from the coil primary are
fed to the engine running sensor through the white1
black wire and the pump -relay remains energized.
If the engine speed falls below 150 revlminthe
time between the ignition pulses is too long to hold
the relay in the energized state and therefore, the
power to the fuel pump is switched

addition, illuminatethe warning lamp bulb on the

The warning iamp may illuminate when the
engine is being cranked but should extinguish soon
after the engine starts. The lamp will however, remain

normal operating temperature.
Modes of operation
Engine warm-up
During the warm-up period two basic compensations
are necessary.
The first compensation is for fuel condensation
losses on the cold wails of the combustion chamber
andinlet manifold. The second compensation is for
powzr lost due to increased mechanical friction.
The compensation for condensationlosses is
achieved by increasingthe fuel flow to the injectors.
The power fost is overcome by feeding a larger
volume of air into the engine than is dictated by the
position of the throttte butterflies.
Prior to the engine starting the coptrol piston is in
its fowest position. However, once the air sensor plate
is moved downwards by the force of the intake air,
the control piston will be moved upwards in the barrel
of the fuel distributor.
The control piston is aflowedto move further up
the barrel of the distributor (for a given volume of
intake air), because the control pressure acting
against the upward movement of the piston, has been
reduced by the action of the warm-up regulator.
The extra movement of the control piston
increases the opening at the fuel metering slits and
atfows more fuel to flow to the injectors.
As the bi-metals in the warm-up regulatorand
the auxiliary air valve are heated they alter the
characteristicsof their respective components.The
warm-up regulator gradually closes the return line to
the fuel tank which therefore, increases control
pressure and restrictsthe movement of the control
piston in the fuel distributor. This action limitsthe
opening of the fuel metering slits, reduces the fuel
flowing to the injectors, and weakens the mixture.
The bi-metal of the auxiliary air valve
progressively relaxes its force on the blocking plate,
allowing the return spring to pull the plate to its closed
position. This reduces the engine idling speed to its
normal seiting.
Engine idle speed
When the engine attains normal operating
temperature it will adopt its normal idle speed. This is
initially set during the manufacture of the vehicle by
adjusting screws that act directly on the throttle
mechanism. The screws are then made tamperproof
to prevent further adjustment.
After the engine has settled or 'run-in' minor
corrections to the idle speed setting can be achieved
by bleeding air around the throttle butterflies, using
the bleed screw situated on the side of the throttle
body. This bleed screw has a limited range of
The idle mixture is controlled by an adjusting
screw which aas directly onto the air sensor plate
lever, altering its position relative to the control
piston. Turning the screw will either raise or lower the
control piston for a given idle speed position of the air
sensor plate, this wilt either richen or weaken the idle
Note The idie mixture is pre-set at the factory and
sealed. No further adjustment shoutd be
When the transmission selector is moved from
the neutral position, the additional load of the
transmission would normally reduce the idle speed.
This is overcome by the idle speed control solenoid.

thereby restoring the idie speed t o the optimum

sensor plate is progressivelyforced downwards by
the increased Bow of intake air.
The downward movement of the sensor plate is
transmitted via the sensor lever, to the control piston.
The control piston is raised accordingly in the barrel
of the het distributor, ellowing additional pass
through the metering slits.
The diaphragm in each of the differential pressure
valves responds to this additional fuel flow by
deflecting funher away from the injection line outlet.
This allows more fuel to flow to the injectors.
Engine full load operation
Under full load conditions the air sensor plate exhibits
maximum deflection and the control piston is at its
highest position in the barrel of the fuel distributor.
This gives the largest openings of the metering sHts.
The diaphragm in each differential pressure valve
isdeflectedto its furthest point away from the outlet
tube to the injectors. allowing maximum fuel flow.
Due to the action of a throttle position switch
actuated by the primary throttle spindle. the electronic

Workshop safety precautions
Always ensure that the vehicle parking brake is firmly
applied, the gear range selector lever is in the park
position and the gearbox isolator fuse is removed from
the fuseboard.
A number of the nuts, bolts, and setscrews usad in
the fuel injection system are dimensioned to the metric
system. it is important therefore. that when new parts
become necessary the correct replacements are
obtained and fitted.
-Fuel is highly flammable. therefore great care must be
exercised whenever the fuel system is opened (i.e.
pipes or unions disturbed) or the fuel is drained. Always
ensure that 'no smoking' signs and foam, dry powder,
or CO, (carbondioxide)fire extinguishers are placed in
the vicinity of the vehicle:
Always ensure that the battery is disconnected
before opening any fuel lines. .
If the fuel is to be drained from the tank, ensure
that it is siphoned into a suitable covered container.
Fuel prwaum
The fuel inj9dion system contains fuel that may be
under high pressure approximatdy 5.2 bar to 5.8-bar
175.4 Ibf/inZto84.1 Ibflinyl.Therefore, to reducethe risk
of possible injury and fire, always ensure that the . system is depressurizedby one of the following,
methods before commencing any work that will entail
opening the system.
1. Clean the inlet connectionto the fuel filter. Wrap
an absorbent cloth around the joint and carefully
slacken the pipe nut to release any pressurized fuel
from the system. Tghten the pipe nut.
2. Allow the pressure to fall naturally by switching off
the engine 8nd allowing the vehicle to stand for four
hours before opening the system.
Health risk
Fuel may contain up to 5% of benzene as an anti-knock
additive. Benzene is extremely injurious to health
[being carcinogenic1therefore, all contact should be!
kept to an absolute minimum. particularly inhalation.
Fuel has a sufficient high vapour pressure to allow
a hazardous build-up of vapour in poorly ventilated
areas. Fuel vapour is an irritant to the eyes and lungs, if
high concentrations are inhaled it may cause nausea,
headache, and depression. Liquidfuel is an irritant to
the eyes and skin and may cause dermatitis following
prolonged or repeated contact.
When it becomes necessary to carry out work.
involving the risk of contact with fuel, particulariy for
prolonged periods, it is advisable to wear protective
clothing including safety goggles. gloves, and aprons.
Any work should be carried out in e well ventilated
If there is contact with f u l the following
emergency treatment is [email protected],.
Ingestion (swallowing)
Do not induce vomiting. Give the patient milk to drink
(if none is available water can be given). The main
hazard after swallowing fuel is that some of the liquid
may get into the lungs. Send the patient to hospital
Wash with a good suppfy of clean water for at least l 0
Skin contact
Immediately drench the effected parts of the skin with
water. Remove contaminated clothing and then wash
all contaminatedskin with soap and water.

8. Test the 'closed loop' system for correct operation
(refer to Fault diagnosis flow chart).
Note Procedures 1.2. 3.5, and 7 apply to all cars. In
addition, a combination of procedures 4. 6, and
8 also applv to cars produced to an Australian,
Japanese. or North American specification.
Before commencing any fault diagnosis or work
on the fuel injection system ensure that the workshop
safety precautions are fully understood.
During manufacture, the components of the fuel
injection system are precisely adjusted in orderto
comply with the relevant emission control regulations.
Therefore, alterations to any of the settings should not
normally be necessary.
Diagnosing and correcting faults
The workshop procedure number refers to the fault
diagnosis chart for the basic K-Jetronic system given in

It should be noted that all components of the
system (except the injectors) can be tested on the
Procedure 1 Induction system sir leaks
Visually check all vacuum hoses. pipes, and clips for
damage o r looseness that may allow an air leak into
the induction system.
Check the entire induction system for air leaks with
the engine running. Use a suitable length of rubber
hose as a listening aid. The leak will ofken be heard as a
high pitched hiss or whistle. '.
P r o d u n 2 Metering control unit lever sticking
1. Ensure that the engine temperature is above 2WC
2. Remove the air intake elbow from the inlet t o the
control unit.
3. Apply control pressuret o the control piston in the
fuel distributor for approximately 10 seconds (refer t o
page 82-32}.
4. Press the air sensor plate slowly downwards t o its
maximl~mopen position. The resislance to this
movement should be uniform over Ihe whole range of
travel. Allow the air sensor plate t o return to its rest
position and repeat the operation.
If the resistance t o the air sensor plate movement
is uniform over the whole range of travel, the metering
unit is not sticking.
Note Whenever the airflow sensor plate is depressed
fuel wilt be sprayed into the engine. Therefore,
the sensor plate should only be depressed the
minimum number of t i f i s t o carry out this
5. Should the resistance t o air sensor plate movemenr
be greater in the rest position, i t could be due to the
plate being eitherout of position or bent.
6. Ifthe conditiondescribed in Operation 5 is
confirmed, depressurize the fuel system (refer to
Page 32-15). Then, press the plate fully downwards a r ~ d
allow it to spring back to the rest position. It should
return freely and bounce downwards slightly from the
spring loaded stop at leasl once.
7. Should a resistance be confirmed in Operation 6.
remove the air sensor plate end repeat the operation, If
this alleviates the resistance, the air sensor plate is
fouling the sides of the air funnel and should be
centralized (refer to Procedure 3) or the air funnel may
be deformed.
8. If there is still a resistance t o the movement of the
lever, it could be due to contamination within the fuel
distributor barrel or occasional binding in the lever
9. Contamination within the fuel distributor can be
checked by separating the fuel distributor from the
control unit and withdrawing the control piston for

5. With the centring guide ring in position, tighten the
retaining screw. Carefully remove the centring guide
6. Apply control pressure to the control piston in the
fuel distributor for approximately 10 seconds (refer to
page 82-32].
7. The upper edge of the sensor plate adjacent to the
fuel distributor, should be flush with the beginning of
the upper cone as shown in figure 82-25.
Note It is permissibleto leave the top edge of the air
sensor plate protruding into the upper cone by a
maximum of 0.5 mm (0.020 in). The lower edge
of the plate (which is chanifered) must not
project upwards outside the short cylindrical
