Is you're Check engine light on? It could be cause you're TPS needs To be checked. Spark plugs/ wires/ Coils, , Vacuum hose lines are losing air from a cracked hose or lose one.

Does the car Shake? Fuel Injector's. Fuel Pump, Fuel lines, Etc.......

Are you runing you're AIR? It could just be causeing the motor to work alittle bit harder and droping the Rpms and kicking back up,

Good Luck ..

IF you are on lpg then check that the gas regulator for icing up and stopping the liquid LPG from turning to gas. If it cuts out on petrol check that there is not a problem with the petrol shut off solenoid . Check the LPG cut off solenoid . I suspect a loose connection or wires to either or both or faulty units

Landrover discovery cuts out on lpg


Dear Charlee1961,

Have you had your system completely checked, made sure that all relevant gas pressure is within normal range, and that the engine has correctly been timed and adjusted in order to compensate for the new fuel?

Have all of the plumbing, the guages and the fuel management and delivery system double checked too. I will need to know if the engine is cutting out on idle, or when you are switching the engine over to use LPG. Will also need to know what conventional fuel this vehicle was using.

I hope to hear from you in the near future, but I hope my simple checks do work things out for you.

Yours sincerely

Ouszen

Started car running on petrol for 5 minutes with lpg switched on, clicking noise from lpg tank, slight smell of gas, when fuel switched to lpg engine cut out. start again on petrol, switch on lpg again,...


could be number of problems but often this is caused by valve on the inlet manifold which is electricaly operated and then it allows the gas in but it is also vacumn sensitive so a perished rubber pipe could cause it not to sense the vacumn .best advice without seeing it is to visit a mechanic that is conversant with LPG conversion

Hi i have an lpg ldv convoy have just put new spark plugs and filter and oil in. runs fine but seems the cough some times on lpg in second gear??????


lpg doesent have as much octane as gas/petrol, and so will stall and hiccup more at lower revs, most people with lpg conversions run their car on gas when around town and switch to lpg when in on the highway. have you replaced the air filter as well?
