LPG Service & Repairs
LPG Service and repairs
If you are having problems with your LPG vehicle such as starting issues or poor idling then your LPG system could need a service or repair. With over 15 years experience Marjac Automotive are LPG specialists and are qualified to diagnose and repair problems in all LPG systems including factory fitted, after market, Liquid injection LPG, Vapour injection LPG and standard LPG systems.
If your car runs on an LPG system its important to have the system serviced regularly to make sure it is working efficiently. This service is different from your general car service because LPG is a specialised system that needs a separate and rigorous safety examination.
The rule of thumb for a standard LPG service is usually 20,000km or every 12 months.
Why you need regular LPG servicing
A regular scheduled LPG service helps to maintain your vehicle and increases its performance and durability. If you don’t maintain a regular service routine, you will open your LPG system up to varying issues that include running lean, running rich, ignition system problems and LPG convertor failure.
Symptoms of LPG running lean :
- hard starting
- poor idling
- poor acceleration
Symptoms of LPG running rich:
- hard starting
- excessive fuel consumption
- ignition system problems
Overtime LPG system components wear out. One of the most important components that should be regularly checked in standard LPG systems is the convertor. On average they have a 10 year life expectancy but should be checked thoroughly during each LPG service.
Also note that your LPG tank needs to be tested every 10 years to make sure it is structurally sound.
