Re: Disco 4.4 V8 System Too Lean EML

I haven't seen it myself, just getting the last bits together to do my own DIY smoke test. The garage told me it was coming out of the baffles just after the MAF. Also coming out from near the EGR valve vacuum connector and out of the driver's side of the engine. Last one must be either the plastic ...

Re: Disco 4.4 V8 System Too Lean EML

So, sent the car for its MOT as that is due in a month, and it failed for high CO2 levels, or unburnt fuel. Got a smoke test done and there is smoke coming out of the intake in various places. Figures crossed this is the issue and will keep you all updated!

Re: Disco 4.4 V8 System Too Lean EML

Post cat lambdas are on extenders and haven't shown faults since it was done 4 years ago. I'll do that tomorrow with the freeze frame data, thanks. There is no valve saver system. I never got round to fitting it after I rebuilt the engine following valve seat recession when I bought it. So I am awar...

Re: Disco 4.4 V8 System Too Lean EML

Thanks a lot for your comments. I have changed the MAF sensor, this was sometime back with a genuine one. This was in an attempt to improve minor hunting at about 1200 revs, which it didn't do! I have tried putting the old MAF sensor back in and it still brings up the fault code after a few starts/m...

Re: Disco 4.4 V8 System Too Lean EML

Hi, yes thanks exactly what I am trying. Realise this is a LPG forum, but my local garages seem to just point at the LPG system which I know it is not. Hence after any tips here to find the problem.

Disco 4.4 V8 System Too Lean EML

Hi all, hope it is okay to post this. I have a 2005 Disco 3 with a 4.4v8 and a BRC LPG kit. It runs okay, but has started coming up with system too lean on both banks. P0171 & P0174 codes. It does this on both petrol and LPG. There was a bit of rough idle occasionally when it first started but I cha...

Which valve saver kit

Hi all, Just wondering, in the process of finishing the rebuild on my Discovery 3 4.4 v8 which was misfiring after running on gas for about 80k. I haven't opted for hardened seats due to cost, so thinking of fitting a valve saver kit to hopefully get a bit longer before the valves recess again. Not ...

Re: Fault symptoms

Just a quick update for those who might be wondering. I have done only about 300miles since the cat was fitted, but early indications show me getting around 45MPG on petrol which is what I was expecting. Still not had an opportunity to fix the LPG system so only ran on petrol so far. Many thanks for...

Re: Fault symptoms

Thanks Simon for the comprehensive reply On the other thread (talking to the OP now) you also said you have low compression on cylinder 4 (more than 20% lower than the other 3 cylinders)... I think I have updated the other thread (second page so may have been missed) that I completed a compression t...

Re: Fault symptoms

2.2 bar is absolutely nominal for Prins system, they are not like others. But as that's a lower pressure than petrol injection, fuelling will be affected more by factors like increased manifold pressure - due to a blocked cat for instance. I wouldn't bother messing with the gas until the other issu...

Re: Fault symptoms

Okay thanks for assistance with the pressure. It is running Keihin orange injectors, not sure about nozzles. The pre cat lambda seems to be working fine. Voltage values continually change from 0.84v to 0.12v completing a full cycle (from 0.8 to 0.8) in about 1 or 2 seconds. The post cat lambda is st...

Re: Fault symptoms

Thanks for your reply. I thought the vaporiser pressure seemed a little high, any suggestion what it should be, about 1.4 perhaps? Fuel trims are +30%. When I say +30% I am taking an average. They would sit around +6% on petrol, when you switch over to gas the fly up to +50% but waiver all over the ...

Another update for you all, gone a bit quiet as I have been installing a Prins kit on my other car a Sportage, running excellent now!

Re: Prins Service on DIY Fitted System

Well, just a quick update for you, got the new install calibrated and the software updated by Blair from Autogas 1 Ltd, excellent chap. Worked a treat, said it was very good actually, few tweaks but running well. Just got to get it certified and on the register now.

Cheers for your help.

Thanks, will give him a try.

Anyone had any experience of either of the following:

AFV Sunside Service Station in Halifax or

GAS Autocentre Ltd in Huddersfield?
