Petrol car not start on gas

My Charade has a problem. I tried to start my car on gas, but the engine did´nt jumps up, though I tried 20 Times. After that I has thrown some Petrol on the Carburetor and the engine started running. I went to the mechanic, he told me not to drive car on gas but on Petrol for 2 Days. 2 days are over now, and today I tried to run my car on Gas, suddenly it stoped working. I than started it on petrol and it runs. I want to drive my car on Gas too, because its Economical and cheaper than Petrol.

Can someone tell me what happen to my Car. How can I repair that Problem?

If you have the engine already converted to LPG you need to check the changeover solenoid.

Your ignition also needs to advance with LPG.

I don't think you should be playing with an LPG fault and need a qualified mechanic to sort the problem.

Your car is not a gasoline engine, It is a diesel engine. Don't ever put gas in it again very bad for it.

I tried jump starting a diesel engine with my petrol engine now my petrol engine wont turn over although the battery is good why ?


Some times the extra amperage coming from the alternator the diesel motor will burn out the electrical components of a smaller vehicle. This is why you should never jump start your lawnmowers, motorcycles, or any small engine with a full size vehicle. Check your battery, then alternator, and keep tracing it back until you find the source of the problem.

The car has full electric powers but it wont turn over. what's the problem


Just because the lights go on and the radio plays does not mean you have full power.
Many things can keep a car from starting, and the cold makes them worse.
Did you try jump starting?
And most importantly did you crank the engine for maore than a minute at a time? That means you have flooded the engine with gas.
To fix this, jump the car while holding the gas pedal to the floor. Do this 4 times at 20-30 seconds each.
Then try and start without holding gas pedal.

2.The odometer - just remove the end that goes into the engine and have the groove on it enhanced , it will work fine

Gas and petrol problem


Might be time to change plugs.Use NGK V Grooves.Also could be that you have not run on petrol for a while?Gas is a smoother running fuel than petrol and an engine must run on petrol correctly before tuning gas.Check that H/T leads and distributor are in a good servicable condition.Make sure you have no engine vacuum leaks.Let me know how you go and if you need further help.I fit and repair LPG vehicles on a daily basis.

Where abouts are you? If you are in Europe try Camskill in England. If Australia try Repco or Daihatsu Auto Recyclers. You will probably need rconditioned CVs too.

With the engine you may find it's getting a little worn and the compression is down. Try retarding the ignition a tad and make sure your points are gapped correctly.

Bosch Super 4 plugs work well on the 3 pot engine.
