Yeah yeah, I've done a search.......

My wagon runs on duel fuel. Since doing the cam, the motor is idling OK on LPG and then it starts to surge until it conks out. Everything is good while it runs on petrol so this is gas related, sort of.

You see, when I converted my ED to run a EECV ECU, the problem is much much worse. Another strange thing is when I start it up first thing in the morning, whether it be gas or petrol, the motor will rev to 2k for a few seconds before settling down to a 900- 1k idle.

I've set the TPS, also done the base idle as well. Very very frustrating because this is a real pain while driving in town with the thing stalling all the time. Before I finish, this only does this on LPG.



Interested in a fair go for the Hunter-New England area of NSW?
