Falcon EF XR8 starts,runs,then stalls

My EF XR8 which I had recently converted to Lpg,starts really well in the morning when the engine is cold then idles smoothly for 2 to 5 minutes,then it stalls and if I try to restart it straight away it becomes very hard to start.(If I don't let it idle and drive the car straight away it usually goes OK for a Km or 2 then stalls while idling at traffic lights and is really hard to start. If I leave the car alone for a while after it stalls it usually restarts Ok,only if I try to start it straight away after it stalls then it doen't want to start.
It does this regardless which fuel I'm using.
Regards
Peter

Where did you get the LP kit
most of the ones I've seen do little to compensate for dirty valves and PCM calibration

I start with the LP company first but they will probably do an intake/combustion chamber cleaning first

this is one of the biggest reason OEM's did not stick with the LP idea because it gums up the valves and causes driveability concerns

    while I agree there are other issues possible, since it is LP I know most get gummed quickly so thats why I recommended the combustion chamber sleanaing first

    the carbon build up acts as a sponge and cause all kinds of problems at idle


    if it had never been LP then I'd say start with the IAC (idle air control) motor

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.

I have just changed motors over in car it starts but will not go into any gear...its an automatic ef for falcon xr8


I know this is going to sound like a dumb question, but are you sure the transmission is bolted to the engine crankshaft ? Can you tell if the crank is turning the torque converter ? And did you reconnect all of the wiring for the engine and trans ?
Dennis and I are in the US and you are in Australia ( I presume) so we may not have access to info for your specific car.
There may be someone on the website that does have that info.

What is the firing order for a 1995 ef xr8 5 litre???


Hi there:
Falcon EF is 1-5-3-6-2-4

EF has a coil pack under the inlet manifold; also keep in mind that EF uses a waste spark system so 2 plugs are fired at the same time eg 1 and 6 - 2 and 5 - 3 and 4


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Running on lpg then stop turn engine off then start engine and drive 20 metres and engine stalls! switch over to petrol and runs ok switch back to lpg and stalls


check that your cooling system if full of coolant. the coolant that keeps the engine cool actually keeps the gas converter from freezing. alternatively is it hard to start of a morning when cold, if so could be butane wax build up from the gas, in the convertor.

Magna 3.5 on LPG Duel Fuel


LPG fueled vehicles are inherently "cold-natured" due to the temperature drop when the "liquid" gas under pressure reverts to gaseous state causing a frost build up around nozzles and jets. The only solutions are to start on pump gas until up to operating temperature and the switch fuels, or allow the engine to warm up to operating temperature on LP gas before driving, thus avoiding the stall point.
