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

Make sure its really the thermostat at fault, low coolant level might make heater run cold, and since the vapouriser is on the same pipes it might not be getting any coolant at all. If your still having problems once its fixed, can you identify the system? Photos of the bits you can find would proba...

Re: Lpg takes ages to switch over from petrol

Yes an air pocket is the same thing - you may find particularly if the unit is quite high up in the engine bay that its prone to doing it when the coolant is disturbed, or if there is a leak. Not sure on the force to start on gas as I've not seen stag, but it does exist on some systems. but you real...

Re: Lpg takes ages to switch over from petrol

Switchover threshold is adjustable - first point of call is to check how hot the vapouriser is getting (if its only getting some coolant flow it can take a while to get hot - in which case address that). It could also take a while to reach the switchover temp, some ecus can be set to not switch over...

Re: Disco 2 4.6 V8 Romano issues...

Beeping constantly will indicate some sort of error being logged - the software for the lpg ecu with a suitable lead will tell you whats wrong. As far as i can tell, the wiring diagram is the same as the OMVL system, I've attached those to this post. Tinley Tech have both leads and the software avai...

Re: Omvl dream xxi

Simon (lpgc) would be a good best for you, hes on here. But would suspect unless you think it's actually staying on (lights on switch on after engine switched off would suggest it's the case?) That you need to look elsewhere.

Re: Cutting out when on gas

Are you sure it's a ticking from an injector and not the sound of a arc from one of the coils? As you've had to get brutal with them it's possible that you've cracked one. That was along the lines of what i was thinking as well. Equally if its misfiring badly enough to be logged by the petrol ecu w...

Re: Cutting out when on gas

It may be worth a repair kit, depending on what ecu your using, you may be able to switch that single cylinder to petrol to try and isolate which one is the problem (probabbly worth doing all of them if repair kit is justified, but you can also swap injector wiring and pipes around to prove its the ...

Re: How often should I service LPG system?

It would be wise to give it a once over check of the hoses for any leaks at least once a year (both gas and coolant ones) for the time it takes, particularly if jubilee clips are used as they can work their way loose over time. Stag does have a service interval setting which can be enabled, which wi...

Not sure if it's just me (I'd mentioned problems with time stamps being wrong yesterday to David) but my profile was set to the wrong time zone. Does the time shown at the top of the page show the correct time for you Simon?

Re: Newbie alert!! 2002 vauxhall combo question

Not too surprising with a vehicle of that age - Outside is obviously the place for it until you have it sorted. If its on the filler, provided the valve works, it will only vent whats in the filler pipe itself and not the whole tank. But obviously we can't see exactly what you can. The factory fit k...

Re: Time for a new tank?

The 2 different types shouldn't matter at all, as long as your one way Ts are fitted and work and the valves work. Can't see any reason to have a problem with the mix of pipes on the filler either, though might be slow with either of those choices, The 4 hole should fill quicker though without using...

Read out diagnostic system for Koltec EGI / GSI. De EGI LPG installation from Koltec has a self diagnostic-system which all disturbances will be storages in its memory for a time.

Re: Newbie alert!! 2002 vauxhall combo question

You won't get a new reducer now, but the rebuild kits are available for about £30. They are a pain to put together, and on a unit approaching 18 years old, you are likely to find something will break taking it apart or a bolt will not want to move. But if its flashing, it may be trying to tell you a...

Re: Time for a new tank?

First question would be is there a cap on the filler point? I've seen those sorts of deposits on a filter in a forklift, but thats using cylinders, which is a slightly different situation. Liquid gas when its in a tank will make enough sound to make you think theres a load of debris in the tank when...

Re: Service or replace

Valtek 30 aren't particularly highly rated. The Nevo supports many injectors, it might be worth checking in the software to see what's listed to start with. Might need to update the firmware to get more support for newer injectors on your existing ecu.
