Question about 1995 Toyota Land Cruiser
I have a 95 Land Cruiser 4.5 series 80 fitted with a LPG system. For some reason the engine overheats sometimes when running on LPG. It has a new radiator and a new Toyota thermostat.When I am running it on gas this problem does not occur.
Occasionally it does have a second problem where the regulator get so cold the engine stalls. It is as if the water does not circulate through the regulator.
Any ideas what could cause this?

Your front "ball & socket" joints are in dire need of lubrication. You need to do this:
Take the tires off, and look for a fill plug behind the hub, on the housing, above the ball & socket. Remove the plug, and fill it up with 80-90 gear oil. Replace the plug, do the other side.
What you have is a dry joint, and the clicking noise is coming from the u-joint (actually called a "Rzeppa" joint), inside the ball/socket/hub...a good lubrication will eliminate your condition. Hope this answers your question, please feel free to comment back with any other questions...And, thanks for choosing FixYa.

Just check your car does not have differential locks, in theory they should not come on without being switched on but they can fail in the 'on' position. Lift both front wheels and see if the steering is stiff with the engine running, if it is then the 'locker' is not to blame. If it is now free then look at the locker and see if it has seized,

You have a fuel injected car. Things that can cause too rich would be a bad altitude sensor like the map or mass air flow depending on which one you have.
Anything that would cause excess air to go into the exhaust system like a cracked exhaust pipe before the 02 sensor, or low compression, or a stuck open pcv valve, intake gaskets, throttle body base gasket.
Or a Throttle position sensor which is telling the computer you foot is on the gas when it is not.
Its possible you have a bad PCM,, or coolant temp sensor saying the motor is still cold as its warming up.
Its possible you have a vacuum hose somewhere on the engine with a big crack in it or its just inplugged and you dont see it.
But my first guess would be possibly a bad computer.
Try creating a big vacuum leak when its loading up. It should run better.
Also if you have an egr valve it could be stuck open a little causing excess air or an idle air control valve stuck open.
Does it clean up if you rev it up or does it blow black smoke reved and at idle. This could point towards the altitude sensor.
