Engine gives a little miss while traveling out on the road

Hi i have a 1994 volkswagen transporter t4 2.5 petrol its duel fuel petrol / LPG it had been converted to LPG in 1996 and has run on LPG up till 2 years ago then i connected the petrol back up so it can be switched from one or the other. now its developed a miss while driving out on the road it happens on petrol or LPG while stopped the engine runs well Evan reeving the engine while parked it will not miss only when its under load. i have replaced the spark plugs, ignition leads, coil, and replaced the distributor with a new one it has a new cap and rotor and have all so replaced the throttle body with a new one as the old one had wear in the shaft and have replaced the fuel rail and injectors with new ones. I hope you can help me fix it thanks Darren.

Holden statesdman 1994 VR It is on PETROL AND GAS will start on petrol but keeps stalling when switched over to gas is good

I assume this is dual fuel.... LPG and gasoline??????? Is cooling system full? If so, probably plugged filter on LPG convertor. If you are not knowledgeable with LPG, get someone who is. LPG is highly explosive.

Hi, I had a vehicle for factory fitted LPG ,engine won''t start and I trace fault fuses and relay ok but i dont have pulse going to the solenoid,is rhis something to do with the ECM?

I take it that you have a duel fuel system where by you can switch from fuel to gas by a switch on the dash
the solenoids will shut of petrol or gas depending on the switch position
Normally it is not connected to the ECM as it is not something that the control module has any thing to do with
THe only action that would involve the ECM is the readjustment of the air/fuel mixture as it reads the HO2s and O2 sensors after you change fuel delivery systems
I would involve the shop that fitted the LPG system as it could be simply be a bad connecting in a wire or loose ground wire

Over heating problem and problems associated with duel fuel

If the overheating occurs when on gas (LPG) I would be looking at a problem converter /regulator for the gas as it may be too lean under load . If you have a viscous fan hub then that will also cause over heating as the engine is working hard but there is little air flow through the radiator because the fan is not drawing sufficient air to cool it.. As the octane rating for petrol and LPG is much then same then Make sure that the ignition timing is correct. Find a service shop that specialises in LPG fuel cars and they may have a dyno that they use to get optimum performance out of both fuels .

I have a 53 plate Vectra duel fuel the other day i thought it had ran out of lpg so i went to fill it up filled the tank and it wont go in lpg but works fine on petrol iv looked on line i think its GSI...

As u say could be many things as cause.but if lpg tank is full but not switching over from petrol to lpg it’s some kind of electrical problem like a relay or valve.check for lpg car specialists on net or Internet forum where the complete details of the problem can be reviewed

1991 XJ6 (XJ40) 3.2 auto. This car has a LPG conversion fitted and is duel fuel. It starts on petrol, and then switches to gas at 2000 rpm when the switch is engaged. A few days ago now it would't start,...

i have a dealers manual somewhere and i put it somewhere safe and i cannot find it ,typical but if its converted right it should start on lpg with no problem without starting on petrol but it all depends on the type of conversion and who fitted it i suppose .I have a 4.0 litre version and what a tool its just so impressive only wish i could get a few more weddings to do in to help pay the road tax here in spain

Petrol has a different ignition point than LPG. You might want to get your fuel system recalibrated.
