A few months back I posted saying my car was having problems running on LPG - basically would cough/splutter and almost die at anything over 2000rpm

I've noticed now that I dont hear the loud "click" from the boot when I turn my car to on like I used to. The car no longer starts or runs on LPG now.. has anyone else had this problem (car runs like s**t like its very lean above 2000) and a few months later the tank stopped working? (I assume the valve or solenoid on the tank is cactus)

APA tank connected to vialle aftermarket system.

There should be a shut off valve between the solenoid and the tank. you need to shut this before working on the Solenoid.
The solenoid can be replaced, you should be able to pick one up from a LPG installer.

I never had any trouble getting LPG parts before, but that was awhile ago. I guess the industry is tightening up against unqualifed repairers.
