LPG Converted Rodeo Backfires

Have an intermittent fault which causes Rodeo to backfire when running on LPG. Had it converted 3 years ago. No problems to start with. Then one day I noticed that the air cleaner had blown it's clips off. Since then have had a backfire through the air cleaner every couple of days. Also hear a gurgle in the exhaust. Have had it back on numerous occasions to the installer, but he can't figure out what's wrong.

Backfiring in this case is caused by a lean air/fuel mixture, so I would suggest you richen up the gas supply by either increasing the pressure or the volume of gas being delivered to the engine.

I have a BF MKII SERIES Ford Falcon Sedan which has a Factory fitted LPG motor. It backfires when I start the vehicle. Please let me know if it can be fixed.?


A lean mixture is causing this fault, It is important to have this repaired. if lean only on start not a big fault. if lean on running under load it will burn exhaust valves and top of pistons.

Why does it run well, then backfire and stall?


make, model, year? backfires are spontaneous burning (exploding) of unburnt fuel outside of the combustion chamber. suspect bad spark plug/s, ignition coils, ignition timing, computer, leaking fuel injector, etc. scan for trouble codes, then post back. because the problem is intermittent, problem manifests only when hot (engine at operating temperature) do tests for both cold & hot conditions. test resistances (ohm) of suspected sensors: cam & crankshaft position sensors, ignition coils (if possible),(search the web for the recommended procedures). also test voltages at the computer (search the web for the pin outs of the computer of your car). also check associated relays (like for the fuel pump, etc.) a bad relay may have its coil open when heated, then becomes good again when cold. i suspect the car may have a good fuel delivery but the sparks are not coming in on demand, thus backfiring.

# 2 cylinder plug wire was cut... All wires were replaced but car still backfires.... What else can cause this


What is the year, make, and model of your vehicle, as well as engine size? You say it backfires...is this as you try to start it? Does it backfire constantly, or intermittently?

Lpg converted engine wont run using lpg without gasoline in tank


It is normal. All LPG converted engines start with gasoline. Then when they reach 2000 rpm move on LPG system.
If you want to start directly with LPG must call a professional to modify your installation.

My jaguar (lpg gas) says limited performance


hi your issue is that your car which starts with petrol then switchies over to lpg for which youll already know ,but the problem lies within the cylindar heads as it can only be 1 of 3 things =1, your valve seals are worn excessively due to the lpg as that runs at a higher heat density which stretches the valves which in turn causes then to wear and that reduces the power ie lack off,as it puts the ecu into limp mode (safe to protect your engine) as its a common fault on ALL lpg conversions.as that is also the knock on effect with your master servo (brakes).as i fix approx 3/4 a month.
hope this help's to clarify what is wrong ok

X type converted to LPG. It runs OK on LPG but not petrol


areas to check are the fuel pressures, fuel hoses, fuel crossover solenoid
It indicates that the ECM is receiving the correct information from the sensors to adjust for LPG but when crossed over to petrol signals from sensors are not as clear as they should be
This can be from a power drain to components caused by a faulty solenoid or relay that is reducing the voltage available to the sensors ( normally in the air intake system or the heated oxygen sensor in the exhaust manifold )
check all harness connections and wiring
if you are checking it all your self then a workshop manual that has all of the voltages for each sensor would provide help

Why did my airfilter box explode? A Landrover Disco.


Hi,
If an inlet valve stuck or has a crack - it may ignite the rest of the gas/air mix - causng a backfire into the airbox.

This may be temporary or a permanent- recurring problem. Only by taking the head off can you check valve conditions and that all springs and guides are good.

This is the most likely cause - pre-ignition from a slow to close valve.
