Re: MOT Fail

What Gilbert said above, You should find that the lpg system can be effectively disabled by simply removing the fuse from the feed to it (this in most cases will be on the battery positive feed using an inline fuse holder, though that depends on the system fitted). You might need to clear fault cod...

Thanks for reply Gilbert. No - it has been on permanently for years irrespective of whether it is on gas or petrol.

MOT Fail

My dear Corsa C had an MOT fail today due to engine management. light being on . The tester laughed when I told him it had been on for 8 years non stop - with no loss of fuel efficiency. The diagnostic fault code is still the same - showing lamda sensor problem. When this first occurred 8 years ago ...

Re: Zafira B fault code U0009

The Prins diagnostics screen will have told him what was preventing the system running on gas (specifically detected problem with injector 3). I may have jumped the gun a bit assuming the U0009 appeared at the same time as the LPG system refused to work - Did the U0009 appear at the same time as th...

Re: Zafira B fault code U0009

You're welcome. Petrol injector or LPG injector fault code? Hello again Simon. Just been to the nearest Prins approved installer and he very quickly showed me faulty part + sheared wiring to no 3 injector. He said he could only do a repair as he only had sockets for Prins vs2 system - ( mine is 6 y...

Re: Zafira B fault code U0009

Simon- thank you very much for this. It works fine on petrol and all the variables you mention are still functional. I have had wiring problems before with this install - usually accompanied by injector fault code. The terrain is very rough and bumpy here in Turkey and I reckon it could be relevant ...

Zafira B fault code U0009

Over in Turkey at present and gas has just turned off onto petrol. Have stopped , cleared the code but just switches over to petrol again. Fitted with a Prins Vsi system - more trouble than they are worth in my opinion. I have had problems before - usually to do with the wiring but never this fault ...

Is Direct Injection A Problem- Citreon C4.1.2 PURETECH-3 cyl

Bit of advice please. Been told by some installers that conversion on the above is not recommended because it is direct injection. Only one who has said " no problem" is an approved Prins installer who claims he has a kit specific to my CITREON C4 - but I am not keen on getting a Prins installed. Wh...

Re: Prins Valvecare

If you post a pic or two of your install - showing where the pipe from the valvecare bottle joins onto something other than the valvecare bottle and valvecare pump, I'll be able to advise what type of valvecare system you have. Simon thanks Simon. Will do this tomorrow. Spoke to 2 installers today ...

Re: Prins Valvecare

Hi Simon. I certainly wouldn't say Prins are the best - it has caused me no end of problems mostly to do with ECU shut off - always on the continent funnily enough. And what makes it intolerable is that the back up abroad is appalling .And yes I did pay over the odds. My first LPG conversion was a b...

Re: Spark plugs forLPG

Should only cost a couple of quid for the torx socket, as easy to remove as the few mins it took the mechanic would suggest! Different plugs recommended for different model Zafira engines (model of engine depending on year), usual LPG advice is NGK but some model Zafira engines like the original fi...

Prins Valvecare

My car was fitted with a top of the range Prins system soon after buying it in 2010. It was also fitted with a Valvecare lubricating system. I rang the same installer recently to order 2 bottles of Valvecare fluid. He told me he was out of stock and also informed me that he now fitted JLM lubricatio...

Spark plugs forLPG

Getting a misfire fault code re cylinder 3 on my Vauxhall Zafira ( fitted with top Prins system in 2012). I am hoping that a new coil pack will do the trick ( it's time for a replacement anyway) and I am going to replace the spark plugs at the same time. I have ordinary Bosch Super in there at the m...

Re: 2010 VAUXHALL ZAFIRA 1.6 - FAULT CODE P0303

Does the fault reappear if you clear the code then run only on petrol? If so, then it's not likely to be anything to do with your Prins system. However - Vauxhall coil packs are well known for failing after a while. When was the coil pack last replaced? If you've done 75,000 miles and not replaced ...

i had this fault code appear 9 months ago and it was fixed by replacing the spark plugs. However it has just reappeared again yesterday - loss of power and stumbling engine performance. I cleared the fault code , ran it for 100 yards or so and it reappeared. Checked the spark plugs and they are clea...
