okay huge update guys...

sorry have been away from the comp for quiet a while...

now.. i solved the issue thanks to this forums brilliant minds... my dads a procrastinator hes way too busy so i got around to it myself...

First i bought some WYNNS Fuel injector cleaner... which helped quiet a fair bit.. ran it on petrol.. i used the 300ml bottle in about 20 litres instead of 50

that fixed a fair bit of the problem.. but just to be sure..

i bought some throttle body cleaner... cleaned the MAP sensor.. then had a crack at the throttle body sensor then the ICS Idle something something... once all that was done i cleaned some of the obvious vacuum lines i could see with the throttle body cleaner..

and yeah. that takes care of my crazy idle issues.. where the idle jumps like crazy up and down..

although on petrol its still very dead-laggy umm not responsive etc? upto 2500rpm but i think thats the timing and doesnt run too great on petrol but way better than before...

LPG runs great.. no problems at all..

IDLE IS GREAT SMOOTH and sexy lol.

and gonna do a comprehensive clean (MAYBE) of the lpg converter anyway..

now there were some things that still are wrong..

the engine is ticking.. i think its the lifters? or its the spark plugs/leads... gonna get around to taking a look at them tommorow.. and the engine is sortof moving about a fair bit ie not totally shaking but just a tiny bit & thats at standstill...

but something is ticking ...

you say you CLEANED the vac lines? i was thinking more like suck on them to see if they hold vac, if not, replace.

and why are there two threads on this?
