Re: high pressure during cut off

Has anything been done with the MAF? And is it a genuine unit, or something else?

Re: injector cleaner

Plugs sound like a good bet for that, if its not the plugs then the coils would be the next thing to check over. The bit of "Once you stick your foot down she runs fine" sounds very much ignition related to me. A slightly failing coil pack will show up more on gas than petrol. If you can borrow a se...

Re: injector cleaner

Maybe. Depends if the injectors are gunged up! I've used ic12 successfully. But it will only clear deposits, won't repair any damaged seals etc. Its worth a try at any rate. Some ecus have a cleaning program so its worth checking your software for one, I used the one on the kme nevo with the cleanin...

Re: Reducer recommendations

It definitely looks like one of the Tomosetto type, The back end is a lot larger than the one I posted, but would suspect you'd get the right diaphrams by looking for them under the Tomosetto types if it comes to needing them in the future Some of them use the same diaphrams according to what info i...

Re: Reducer recommendations

They might be too big (file size) I think theres a limit of 2mb per pic maybe. Either crop them down, or reduce the quality. Or post them to imgur or onedrive and link them would also work?

Looking around, this is listed as an ultragas https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Ultragas-LPG-Reducers-Vaporisers-Regulators_60684950716.html?spm=a2700.galleryofferlist.normal_offer.d_title.1b96690bkKf7LW Looks very much like a tomosetto AT-09 to me (infact you can see AT09 on the side of it and...

Re: running lean P0170

Maybe its been off a while or something, long as the pipe looks good now you should be fine. I can only guess that maybe the clip was on in such a way that its caused the deformation of the pipe your seeing. At least now you know to keep an eye on it (like the petrol feed I discovered at the end of ...

Re: running lean P0170

Good news, you might want to replace those pipes in the near future if they are that bad though! If you do, then try to keep them the same lengths as you currently have. Theres usually a clip to hold the pipe on, may be a spring clip or could be a crimped on type. Spring clip can be reused (might be...

Re: running lean P0170

It won't be the scanner you want to do it with, it would be the lpg lead and matching software for your ecu that you'd need. Your scanner only speaks to the petrol side of the system, the gas side is seperate. I don't have a king ECU to try it with, but the software appears to support doing it. Thes...

Re: running lean P0170

If your gas ECU (don't know what you've got as you haven't said) supports it, you might find some answers by switching indviual injectors between fuels and watching what happens with the trims. I'd be suspecting you have an injector not opening or flowing as well as it should do as a possibility. De...

Re: Engineering company suggestions for hard valves/seats

Some Ford engines use the same arrangement for the tappets as that shown. The Duratec ones I think are where that started. The later Zetecs were shimmed. Though those all 4 pot engines obviously.

Well done on getting it out though, acetone a good thing to know.

Re: King ECU diagnosing connection issues, can't switch to gas (split from original topic)

Could well be, that might also be the cause of it being dead. It wouldn't be too hard to put the multimeter on its amps setting inline with the cable to try and find it. Would be a case of running along the loom to see if you can find a bit that changes when moved around. Bits close to parts that mo...

Re: King ECU diagnosing connection issues, can't switch to gas (split from original topic)

The 10 seconds start is probably a manifold full of gas, leaking through an injector or the vaporiser vacuum connection. Lpg related but not to the software fault. Since the gas isn't working theres no pressure in the gas system, so you can't see issue now. I'd expect if you applied power to both fr...

Re: Car jerks on LPG only. Advice please.

Sometimes obd can save a lot of time when it points you towards which cylinder has an issue, Good to know you located the issue. Worth noting as you now are aware, that ignition problems can be more noticable on gas than petrol as well.

Re: King ECU diagnosing connection issues, can't switch to gas (split from original topic)

If you disconnect the lpg ecu you effectively have broken the wiring between the petrol injectors and the petrol ecu. So the failure to start in that state is completely expected and not of concern. As long as the gas ecu is plugged into the loom, then even if the gas ecu isn't powered, it will conn...
