Lpg not working.
« on: 11 July 2019, 19:10:18 »

Hi guys,
3.2 , Just recently, i found the car will cut out and not restart on Lpg, but runs like a dream on petrol.
Starts fine then cuts when the Lpg kicks in, so am just using petrol at the moment.
Any Ideas?

Ok, so, have had a play, the valve in the tank clicks over and so does the one under the bonnet.
On the second go she ran on Lpg, but misfiring, throwing a 0301.
It wont switch back on to petrol unless i clear the code first, then it does and runs perfectly on petrol.
Switch back to Lpg and its instant 0301.
The pipes look ok, is it the valve for that cylinder?

Puzzled.

I thought that, but runs perfectly on petrol, and i did coils (Bosch) about 25,000 ago.
I will pull the plugs again.
I cant understand it.

Lpg is sensitive to weak plugs ;)

No harm in swapping it with the one on cylinder 2 and see if the fault moves banks... :-\

Will google that,
My metering skills go as far as battery and alternator testing.
