Hi i have been experiencing problems with my LPG system in my ford sedan...
at times it runs perfect but at other times it runs very bad as in
stutering and sometimes even stalling. It sort of feels like the car is
very low on gas, but its not. like i said it will run perfect at times then
5 minutes later it will shit itself.. 5 minutes again it will go fine. i
know a fair amount about my car but very little about how the LPG works, i
am hoping someone could direct me in the right direction thx.
P.S my LPG system was professionally installed 7 years ago. As in it was not a back yard job.
My Car is an Australian made Ford Falcon XE 1983 sedan. (not that this should have anything to do with this problem)
Few questions first, how long has it been playing up? Can we assume that
the car is running on carbs? do you know which manufacutres parts were
used? is it a single or 4 point tank? does temperature have seem to have
any effect on it? does your system have a electric evaporator module or
does it use a heat exhanger linked to the cars cooling system, when was it
playing up for about 6 months.. as for the carb i am almost certain that is
not the problem that is the first place i looked... it uses a special type
of carb which allows the car to switch from LPG to petrol... my car can run
on both petrol and LPG....which i forgot to mention before. i purchased
this car off a half mate of mine which i ahve no contact with today because
he lives somewhere in europe, but i will assume it hasnt been properly
serviced since it was installed. single or 4 point tank? dont know what
that means.. the gas tank itself is a big round metal thing located in the
boot if that helps...a electric evaporator module or does it use a heat
exhanger linked to the cars cooling system.. no idea that that means either
but i will be able to find this stuff out by this time tomorrow. thx
i was kind of hoping this is a common problem with LPG cars.
if its a single point tank, ie the inlet, outlet recirclation and presure valve are all coming out the same hole then it might just be a moisture problem.
