Hi there all..

I am borrowing a friends car whilst they are O?S at the moment
and I am having a problem with the lpg..

On cold starts it fires straight away no hassle but when the motor is warm
it takes a few good cranks to get it going..

It is a lpg/petrol system but I was told prior to getting the car that the fuel hasn't been used in a long time so it is stale and needs flushing so I can't switch it over just yet..

Is the problem with starting when warm a easy fix? (fingers crossed)
Thanks very much.. :)

Sorry about that :oops:

It's a 94 fairmont 6 cyl

with the tank fitted by Bendigo Gas Conversions (VIC) in 2006

That's all the information I could find sorry.

Apart from the hard starting it runs well..

Went and had it checked by a mechanic and it turned out to be a few things..

A faulty 02 sensor, the hose leading to the air box disconnected and mixture settings not correct.
