I need a cold start injector for the 22-RE.  Does anyone have a clue where to find one?

should be no problem to get one.   They are common parts. Have you checked Rockauto,com/ Autozone.com etc etc?

BTW, what makes you sure you meed a cold start injector? They are just an injector - and injectors are tough parts. If you have it out, it is easy to test it yourself.

I would test that injector myself - a 9v battery, a can of spray carb cleaner and plastic tubing is all that is needed.

As for replacing it, I would think any injector that will fit the hole might work - all it does is add a little fuel upon cold start up.

There are numerous utube videos on how to clean / test injectors....

That's pretty much correct it only squirts on a crank signal and it's full tilt. The tip length may have some effect but doubtful. You would need one that  accept the screw in fitting. My guess because they were designed for the application makes them expensive very low useage unlike a engine injector. Yes a battery will open the injector that would be a good time to inject a bit of compressed air to the fitting. Conversely you can remove it leave the flex line on and have a friend crank the engine and see exactly what it does it should produce a mist not a squirt no smoking! If nothing happens then you have a delama is there no signal or it the injector toes up? You should be able to feel a "click" when voltage is applied.

the injectors on my 6 cylinder squirt a stream.  It does not squirt directly into the cylinder, neither does the cold start. yes, a 9v battery will make it click.  using a hypodermic syringe (without the needle) full of carb cleaner, you can see the stream it produces. It will confirm that it is somewhat functional. 

have you put a multimeter on the leads to your cold start injector to see if it is getting a command to operate?

Thanks to you all. We tried everything, but it was just no good.  But I found a used one on ebay.  It works and i'm on the road again!!
