cold start problem? on 1991 Toyota Corolla

I have to crank my 91 corolla 3 times before it will start on cold mornings. I'm starting with the cold start switch. Where is it located, and how can I test it before jumping into buying parts? Any other ideas/suggestions? Thanks

the cold start switch is usually located on the highest point of the coolant system somewhere near the intake manifold. the switch itself rarely fails but if your car is slightly low on coolant it won't work. check your coolant level first because that could be the cheapest fix
