I have read posts regarding topics relating to hard, hot starts but
have some additional questions.
The car starts fine when it's completely cold, but takes quite a lot of
cranking in order to get it to start when the engine is hot. I checked
the cold start injector and found that it is working as it should on a
cold start (sprays for about 8 seconds, then stops). However, the cold
start injector does not operate at all on a hot start. The car does a
"hot start" when I manually put 12 volts to the cold start injector for
a few seconds while a helper starts the car.
The other posts suggest that the failure is in the "hot start relay".
I can not find a hot start relay on the car, or referenced as a part
for this car. The only thing close is the CIS/Lambda relay. Is that
I am about ready to add 12 volts directly to the cold start injector
via a switch or, timer relay.
Thank you in advance!

So many items could cause your problem and it could cost you over $600 just
in parts with injectors, fuel distributor, fuel pump or it's check valve or
relay, fuel accumulator, plus whatever else I have forgotten about like
slightly leaking fuel lines.
I had to do this with a Scirocco saved from the junkyard and it needed
almost everything. Started up instantly at all times though.
