Re: Blockage / gas supply

Thanks. I will have a look at the wiring this weekend.

The float is reading correctly.

The issue is somewhere after that as the led cabin gauge permanently flashes as though it's down to it's reserve.

Re: Blockage / gas supply

Yes, crimped a new connector and it's back running on gas.

I am not sure if the switching over is a different issue as the calibration on the dash doesn't read correctly.

Is that something I should be able to look at via the software?

Re: Blockage / gas supply

I think I have found the issue. The wiring to the rear solenoid has parted from one of the push on connectors.

Blockage / gas supply

For the past few weeks the tank reader in the car has been flashing as empty even when full and on idle started to switch back to petrol as though it was empty. I have been intending to get her on the drive and have a look what it might be but due to building a, have ruddy big skip on the driveway s...

Re: ECU dead or something else?

No, the sensor is no more. The part that sat in the bolt recess has come out and detached from the wiring. All I have is the existing wiring that went into the sensor.

I take it without the sensor I can't find out that way?

Re: ECU dead or something else?

Thanks Simon I have found a zavoli sensor with exactly the same thread size. Alternatively, the existing M10 bolt is hollowed out and could be tapped to have an M6 or maybe a bit bigger thread inside it to take another sensor and screw it into that as a make shift option. The problem is there is abs...

Re: ECU dead or something else?

I'd checked the fuses Inc the one for the pump relay and they were all intact. My had mechanic said there was power to the pump but the pump was dead. I am not entirely sure what he did to get it running once the new one was in but he's disconnected the lpg ecu at some point. He thought the petrol i...

Re: ECU dead or something else?

I will try and see if I can find any Turkish website that give the electrical spec. From memory there is very little on the web about it. I saw the old fuel pump that had come out of it, so it has definitely been changed. The live switch orange light didn't come on when I was cranking it over. I tho...

Re: ECU dead or something else?

Thanks. That sensor is interesting. So that goes into the lpg pipe after the reducer? Or is it fitted to the water pipe that heads into the reducer? I assumed that the one fitted to the reducer picks up the water temp to determine to kick the solenoid open? I can find photos of the reducer I have fi...

Re: ECU dead or something else?

Thanks for the replies. I got it recovered to my local garage and the issue was the fuel pump. To many occasions where the petrol level has been low no doubt. However, my luck hasn't improved. As the car came off the truck the front spring went and snapped. I also have a damaged lpg temperature sens...

ECU dead or something else?

The car wouldn't start this morning. Turning over but no lights on the LPG indicator which suggests something electrical is to do with the system. It's an Aldesa system that's about 8 or 9 years old now and worked fine throughout. On one past occasion it did the same thing and the issue I found was ...

Re: LPG Conversion - North England

My Citroën has done exactly the same ever since conversion 7 or 8 years ago. It drops then reset after a few days. The only problem, and you may find this also, is that once under a quarter of a tank, the difference in the true level and gauge is no longer enough to reset and it stays on empty until...

Re: Injector cleaner

I have had the same symptoms in the past and the injector cleaner didn't resolve it, although it improved for a few days before it was back to normal. Initially I replaced the injectors with new ones and it ran perfect until they eventually gunked up. My injectors are valtek re-badged or at least id...

Re: Next question..... Gas paper filter!!

Thanks Yes I saw those types but as you say the seem a bit more hassle to change and also I might need to alter the pipe work a bit to accommodate that type. I think I've over-estimated the hose size. It looks more like 12mm internal dimension, but there seem to be plenty about that would slot in. T...

Next question..... Gas paper filter!!

I need to change my paper filter. However, the replacement filter is really hard to buy in the UK and the only stockist... well he knows he's the only one so everything is way more expensive than it should be. I am changing bits that I can change for more accessible serviceable parts, such as the so...

Re: Solenoid removal

Thanks. I will slacken it off. If it looks like 50 litres of lpg is escaping, I will tighten it up and do it when I've run out! :)

Solenoid removal

I need to remove the solenoid valve in the engine bay and change the wet filter. Is there a correct process for doing it? The inlet hose will no doubt throw out liquid LPG. Will this just be what is in the pipe between that and the one on the tank? I saw an installer remove it a few years ago and he...

Re: Alternative Injectors

Thanks Simon I will pm you to see if we can sort something out. I will forward you some pics of the engine bay / injectors etc if it helps to give you an idea of what is involved. The two outer injectors were drilled to over 2mm and the inside two to 1.5. I think they were drilled too small and then...
