Re: LPG Juddering under light load, works fine on heavy

It's possible that the broken thermostat (so cold engine, engine coolant and LPG pressure reducer) are related to your LPG problems... First fix the thermostat!

Re: Forum Instability

What I have been noticing is that searches seem to take a lot longer than they have in the past. I sometimes reference threads on this forum on other forums etc and to find the correct thread (might have been years ago but I'll remember a keyword from something I posted). Would slow searching also b...

Re: Cutting out when on gas

Pull a hose off an LPG injector (hose that runs to the inlet manifold not a wider diameter feed pipe) and see if you can slot an M6 bolt thread inside it, it you can those pipes will be 6mm internal diameter and you'll be able to use a wide range of injectors (not just a small subset of possible rep...

Re: wrote off car, plug and play for same engine model?

I reckon you should be OK, just check that the petrol pressure regulator vacuum connection routes to the same place on both engines. Some BMW straight 6's have the fpr vac connection to the ducting between the air filter and throttle body (so fuel pressure is relative to atmosphere, which newer vehi...

Re: wrote off car, plug and play for same engine model?

Other info - what car are we talking and would the replacement car be same year etc as previous car? Most likely plug n play though ideally even in this scenario it should have calibration checked and adjusted. But there are some car models where aspects of the original petrol system can change betw...

Re: Cutting out when on gas

Injectors look like Rail IG Apache to me, not an injector I'd ever advise/fit, not good in performance or reliability, in fact I haven't found any Rail brand injectors to be much cop. I've swapped loads of IG1's that have failed early on installs fitted elsewhere, several sets in the yard at the mom...

Don't make any adjustments to calibration before you've saved the current calibration settings.

I may be able to see your Disco this Friday 15th November but won't know until Thursday evening.

You have my number, could call me to see what we can arrange?

Re: Triple tank set up

The type of 'hydrostatic valve' usually fitted to prevent gas flowing from one tank to another is just a T joint with a ball bearing inside, gas from the tank with highest pressure pushes the ball bearing inside the T to shut off the opening in the T from the tank with the lower pressure. It would s...

Re: Cutting out when on gas

Has it always done the same (cutting out) or is this a new problem? Problem could be any of many things (possibly different set of things depending on old/new problem). Is the engine warning light on?

I only see the time top of page on 'board index' and it's reading an hour fast.
My post time agrees with board index time, both an hour fast.
Bottom right of this page says all times are UTC+1

I've edited this post a few times now lol... WJ Jeep (from your other thread). What year, what engine and what LPG components? Is it changing to LPG at the normal changeover temp still? Is the engine warning light on? How come you posted on the other thread saying all was well only 4 minutes before ...

Re: Newbie alert!! 2002 vauxhall combo question

The fuel gauge on the dash will show LPG contents when there is 12v to the solenoid wires, the 2 solenoids are just wired in parallel. As long as the one way valve on the tank works properly won't lose all the gas from the tank via the filler pipe if it leaks. Would usually expect the one way valve ...

Re: Newbie alert!! 2002 vauxhall combo question

The reducer is the most likely bit to be at fault on these systems as they age and for the reason I said... But your problem is by no means definitely due to the reducer, there are other things that can go wrong. The fault I mentioned could be put right just by turning the reducer's pressure setting...

Re: Newbie alert!! 2002 vauxhall combo question

You're right, it won't be running on gas, the flashing light on the switch will reflect a problem with the LPG system. The problem could be many things but is unlikely a fuse. Best case scenario is probably that the reducer output pressure has become too low due to the spring inside the reducer weak...
