General Car Chat / Astra G - Broke Down, Power Steering Q
« on: 29 March 2018, 20:05:44 »
So picked up a Astra G Van today, coming back from London all is well, popped in BP for some Jungle Juice, come out started fine, but total Loss of Power Steering shortly followed by Batt Light, popped bonnet expecting to see no Aux Belt, nope fine thats spinning all nice and tight.

Had no tools on me, so now thinking Alternator has gone, is the Power Steering Electric Pump?, why would this go straight away if Alt has packed up or is it designed to do this?, ie heavey Current drain?, anyway drove off, using really heavy steering, thinking not going to get back Home on the Battery alone, Heavy Traffic, Coolant Fan Switching on, wipers and its starting to get dark, lights etc, so found somewhere to park and Trained it back.

going back to recover / fix tomorrow, any thoughts, can measure the volts but wont be able to fix Alternator roadside, but a few extra batteies on a quiet Good Friday might see me getting back  :-\.

Not sure if its for Me but might help Someone out.  ;)

General Car Chat / LPG Availability ...or rather lack of it
« on: 02 March 2018, 18:34:44 »
Hmm, not looking good is it, the Blue Stations on the Map are the ones without LPG, assume its a Weather thing, although it didn't look much different last week before the Snow arrived.  :-\

NI stays under EU Control and then the EU Border becomes the barrier between NI and the rest of UK.

Pretty much 'In a Nutshell' is whats been proposed Today by the EU in their First Draft Brexit Agreement Release.  :D

Well, almost it still works but the handle is now cracked and wont open (its still got my Dinner in it), its a Tosh, big one, bought back in 1981, was expecting it to last a bit longer if Im honest.

Anyway whats worth buying, dont want cheap shite, but then dont want to be spending loads on one, whats good, with any new features, and hopefully will last, unlike the my one thats just broke.  ::)  :D


General Car Chat / Strange LPG issue - Corsa 1.2
« on: 05 February 2018, 21:17:57 »
So picked up a little Corsa Van 1.2, the car derived van type, dont laugh its quiet a nippy little thing, its a LPG Dual Fuel badged, bought from a Company so high millage but tons of Vauxhall Service History, LPG wasn't working, hadn't been for a year or so.

Anyway, took a punt and Ive managed to get the LPG working again, it was an electrical problem, it runs sweet on LPG now under all driving conditions, but heres the issue it will run on LPG fpr about 2 miles and then switch back to petrol, run for a couple of more miles on petrol before switching back to LPG and so on and on.

Looking at some of the service history looks like its had a few attempted repairs on the LPG side in the past but not resolved, one of the comments made by Vauxhalls was, it was a LPG Pressure problem but they didn't resolve it?, armed with that info I then filled the LPG Tank up to see if that made any difference, it did, it made it worse, it was then still intermittent but needed to run a lot longer on petrol before switching back to LPG, say 20% LPG then the rest on petrol before switching back again.

let it run like that and noticed it improves as the Tank becomes emptier, to the degree it almost runs perfectly all the time on LPG when the Tank is almost empty before running out.

Any thoughts? Tank or Regulator pressure?, or maybe level sender is intermittently telling the system its out of LPG or something?

I do have another theory, that its nothing to do with pressure and the system is working as it should be and its possibly a temperature problem, in as much I guessing a full tank of LPG is a lot colder than a near empty one and its switching off LPG because the temperature is too low, ie the Vaporizer is getting too cold when running on a full tank of LPG?

So far all ive done is changed the Thermostat, no difference, the coolant seems to get up to temp as it should, be it a bit slow and the Vap does get warm, should it get really hot?, Heater gets hot, Ive also unplugged the Temp Sender on the Vap and that throws a fault and shuts the system down, so that kind of tells me thats working, looking at the pluming it looks like the Vap is plumed in parallel to the Heater matrix, so maybe next stage is to do a flush, but as said heater does get hot.

Any other ideas, or stuff I may have missed?. also thinking about re pluming the Vap in series before the heater, good or bad idea.
